Knowing who you are and what you want.
As simple and as common as this statement may appear, I want you to take a moment and have deep reflection over it, look within yourself and ask yourself if you really know what it is that you want from life. Day in day out there are so many tasks to be fulfilled and we run around those tasks without even knowing what we want from life, as we run around every day trying to survive we need to ask ourselves a very sincere question- am I in charge of the direction of my life?
You want to be certain that you are living your life in a way that you are proud of and you are not just living your life to please somebody else. When you are sure of whom you are and what your drive is in life, it will be difficult for a negative relationship to sweep you off your feet. Without a reason to live and a plan to move with, it will be very easy for you to get into toxic relationships that will shift you off focus for a long time.
Realize the difference between fame and value.
A lot of people in the world today just want to be famous, they see fame as a ground to earn so they do not care about how they can get the fame, all they want is just to get very famous and live everyday with the fame but when the fame goes down (which eventually does) then nothing else keeps them relevant, but when value is added to our everyday activities either fame comes or not, we continue to remain relevant.
Be excellent at what you do.
Make it a choice to add excellence to your personality, people always remember you for the things that you do. We are in a generation when it all has to do with the money earned but living in an excellent manner with an excellent personality makes a lot of difference always.
It doesn’t matter what people have to say about the excellent habit you have mastered over a long time or if nobody is noticing your attribute of excellence but make it a personal decision to stick to that excellent attribute always.
