3. You will talk to yourself gently and consciously.
What did you just say to yourself? Were the same inspiring and encouraging words you would say to your friend? Were they harsh remarks you would say to someone to put them down? Or maybe some negative reviews? All day long we talk silently to ourselves, and a part of us believes every word; So be vigilant and ask yourself if you would allow someone to talk to you the way you talk to yourself.
4. You will listen to your heart and soul.
When something seems right to you, it probably is, or at least it is worth looking into. If you feel deeply that something is not right, then it probably is. Pay attention to and follow your honest feelings when you listen to your soul. The doors of life will open in your face, even if they were closed in the beginning.
5. You will live the life that suits you:
Follow the path that makes you happy, and realize that some people in your life will not walk beside you as you embark on this journey; Because they simply won’t approve of the life you’ve chosen, and that’s okay; Sometimes your happiness conflicts with other people’s perceptions, and in order to gain something wonderful, you have to give up something else, and sometimes that thing is a relationship with someone who just wants you to do what they want.
6. You’ll let go of relationships that don’t work out.
Most people pass through your life temporarily just to teach you something, they come and go and make a difference in your life, and it’s okay that they are no longer present in your life, not all relationships last, But the lessons you learn from these relationships will last. If you are mentally and emotionally prepared, any relationship can teach you a valuable lesson, no matter how upset it caused you.

7. You will not let circumstances rob you of your happiness.
Even in difficult times, you must remember who you are. Take a moment to think about the things that have real and lasting meaning in your life, and then smile at the progress you have made, in all honesty. Nothing in this world is more beautiful and stronger than a smile after suffering and tears; Any fool can be happy in the easy times, but it takes a strong spirit and an honest heart to smile in miserable circumstances, and no matter how long it takes, you will get better; So keep moving forward, tough situations build strong people in the end.
8. You will appreciate the life you live.
Most people overestimate the things they don’t have and underestimate the things they do have. Don’t be one of them. The past is behind you. So focus on what you can do today, not on what you could have done or should have done yesterday, remember that you gain something for everything you lose.
Appreciate what you have and who you are today. Life does not have to be perfect in order for it to be beautiful. So thank life for the blessings it has given you, it will not cost you anything to remain positive, and it will change your life for the better. You can control your thoughts, so make good use of them so that you excel in your actions and your life in general.
9. You will use your strength to make a positive difference.
People lose power when they think they have no power. Don’t. The world needs you. In a world full of doubt, you must dare to dream. In a world full of anger, you must dare to forgive. In a world full of hate, you must dare to Love, and in a world full of uncertainty, you must dare to believe, and once you do, you will find that strength you thought you lacked.
10. You will be dedicated to achieving excellence.
If you are going to do something, do it right. Success is never an accident; Rather, it is the result of determination, honest effort, smart direction, skillful execution, and the insight to see obstacles as opportunities, and remember that you cannot judge excellence by looking at where you are at any given point in time; Rather, by measuring your progress to this point and the lessons you learn every day.
11. You will challenge yourself as much as possible.
Just because you suffer does not mean that you fail. Every great success requires great suffering. When you suffer, you will become stronger and smarter. The more you suffer, the faster you learn. It is better to spend a short time learning and growing than many hours without any progress. Every day you have to push yourself to the limit, make mistakes, stumble and learn from those mistakes.
12. You will make the necessary changes:
Life requires balancing holding on to some things and letting go of others, and staying put and moving forward. We strive to make the right choices, but how do we know when it’s really time to move on with our lives?
It’s not always easy to spot the signs that it’s time for a change. But it is there and you know it; Relationships, jobs, and even the places we live in may need to change at some point, and sometimes we cling to pointless things for fear of not being able to adapt to the necessary changes, and the result is always the same: more pain, more frustration, and lasting regret; So be smarter than that, and embrace the changes you know you need to make.
In a world where people break their promises all the time, and promises lose what they once meant, it would be great to see words regain their power and influence; But words may be distorted in different ways. So you have to be careful, remember that when you make promises to yourself; your promises must be backed by hard work, and your perception of the future depends on the actions you take today yourself; So promise yourself and keep your promise.
