Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. ~ Albert Einstein
The hardships of life build character. Find the courage inside to reach your greatness. Stop looking outside of yourself for validation. Validate yourself. Approve of yourself.
Courage is reaching deep within yourself and pushing yourself through every fear which comes your way.
What will you sacrifice to get where you want to be in life. Success requires sacrifice. You may have to give up a bad habit, in exchange for a better habit which will take you the extra mile.
Self-mastery is giving up what’s not working for you any longer in life, and grasping new methods and techniques which will propel you forward and creating the future you desire.
It’s easy to give up and give in to negative emotions, negative feelings, and negative thoughts.
The key is to give up the negative emotions, negative feelings, and negative thoughts. Hold on to the dream. Hold on to the vision. Hold on to idea your circumstances can be overcome.
Know you’re more powerful then you believe by trusting your intuition and instincts. Trust you know what to do. Even if other individuals can’t see the potential in you, see it in yourself.
Hardship builds your inner strength. The obstacles life throws at you, challenge you to find out the truth about you. You can listen to other individuals tell you untruths about you with their negative criticism and naysaying, but what you believe about you is the only thing that really matters.
The world is filled with negative criticism. Negative criticism clashes with your personal inner negative critic. The inner negative critic needs to be silenced.
Millennials may steer away from conflict and opposition.
Opposition is difficult, because there will always be someone who doesn’t accept the Millennial.
There will always be someone who disagrees with who you are as an individual.
The truth becomes reality when one day you face the fact the more you face your authentic truth, stand up for yourself, set personal boundaries, the more individuals will respect you.
Opposition teaches you stand your ground without being thrown off emotional balance, or emotionally ungrounded.
Opposition teaches you to be authentic every step of the way without giving into pleasing other individuals.
Facing opposition takes courage to stand in the gap and be different the rest of the crowd. It teaches you to blaze a new trail, break away into new territory, and become a pioneer.
Opposition may not always feel wonderful or pleasant. This is part of the process, understanding because someone disagrees with you, doesn’t mean you must sacrifice being who you are to please another individual.
When you lose yourself in relation to other individuals, it means you’re dependent on your peers, co-workers, family, or romantic partners to validate who you are.
You may be seeking their approval and seeking out validation whether you’re right or wrong. Why do you feel you’re wrong just because someone sees from another angle and perspective? At times, you may both be right, but for different reasons.
Circumstances are temporary. Find the inner courage to step out of the certain self-limiting beliefs and throw out the values that prevent you from making life happen.
Opposition is one of your greatest advantages. The more oppositions you encounter, the more resilient you become. The more you learn to overcome your inner fears. The more fears you overcome the more you will find you’ve become more successful than you ever imagined.
