The door to success is always open, there’s no lock, one has to just kick open it & that strong kick is your WORK. The world outside though keeps gathering keys to SUCCESS. Knowledge sure is power, learning more, knowing more is valuable but what about doing more? If someone is willing to get off their butt and put in some serious work, they will acquire the necessary knowledge as well. Just collecting the keys to success will not make you successful, it’ll make you a janitor for sure. A complex arithmetic problem already has a solution to it, there’s no lock to be opened to get successful. You need to learn & do the basic addition, multiplication, subtraction and division, once you have learnt that & done that, work harder, think harder and you’ll make the complex arithmetic problem look easy, it has a solution to it, just searching for keys wont help.
Don’t make life complicated than its suppose to be. Start with work & what you know. Knowing more and not doing more wont get you anywhere. Know, Do & Know more. Know more, know more, know more is like pointing a gun and staying with Ready, Aim, Aim, Aim, Aim and never fire.
People demand it all the time, they act different from who they are to get it : Self Respect – often quoted but vaguely understood. So many times you see people working hard on demanding respect and its more they demand, that more they crave for it and lesser they get it.
Self respect has nothing to do with ego, just to portray yourself as tough guy, carry that intimidating personality doesn’t attract people to you. They may do what you ask them to do just out of fear, but deep within they despise you. And it doesn’t take too long for people to overcome fear, the day that fear is lost, your Dear is lost as well.
Self respect is about the respect you carry for yourself. When you respect yourself, others will see it in you, through you and respect you. When “YOU” set a goal for yourself, if you respects that “YOU”, you will give it your best to meet the goal. The respect that you have for “YOU” will determine what you will do. When you don’t have that respect for “YOU” others wont either. Do you love “YOU”, do you respect “YOU”. If you do, then others do as well. It always starts and ends with “YOU”, rest of the world is just a reflection of “YOU”.
