Who is your best friend?- it is yourself
When you are unhappy , you feel mentally soothed when people whom you are close to say a few words of care and give you good advice and it makes you feel happy that you have someone who really cares for you. It takes the sting from your misery. But the solace you feel will be temporary as you will again feel the heat as the problem you faced still persists.
Whatever problems you face can be overcome and there is only one person who is capable of doing it and that is ‘you’. It is you who has to gear up to face the situation. If you are afraid to face problems and rely on others for help you solve your problems it will never be solved. It is you who has to have the grit and determination and become mentally prepared to attack it and amazingly you will win.
If you are a student, no amount of coaching is going to help you unless you make it a point to understand the subjects and study well. If you rely on coaching and other help, you might pass the exams, but your knowledge will not be good enough for you to succeed in your career. If you take efforts to imbibe in your mind what you study, your knowledge will be deep and you are definite to shine in your profession.
In marriage also, it is you who has to make efforts to make your marriage successful. When the efforts do not come from your spouse or you, your marriage will slip into mediocrity. But when you have the mindset and you put in your input of love and care, your marriage will give you immense satisfaction and happiness.
In your profession you have to give your full sincerity and honesty to your job for you to succeed. You can see there are two categories of employees in any profession. Some employees are mediocre and very ordinary and they do not achieve any great success in their work. They do not go up the ladder of success and always lag behind their more energetic colleagues.
Why are these people lagging behind? It is because their frame of mind is fixed on second rate contribution and they will be just a run around the mill type of employee as there is no positive energy in them. If only they had a fighting spirit, they would have fought their way to the top.
There is another category of employees who are always raring to win. These people listen to their mind and since their mind is full of positive energy they rely on themselves to be in the driver seat always. They scale great heights of success and are winners. You should belong to second category to be successful in life.
You should always be your best friend and be positive in your attitude and outlook. No one can help you as you can. Others can only guide you whereas you can lead yourself to success very easily. Be your best friend and give the ‘inner you’ a pep talk to give it that much of leverage which will enable you to scale great heights of incredible triumph.
