Take care of yourself first, before you try to help others. William Shakespeare said, “To thine own self be true.” Your greatest responsibility is towards yourself first. Once that is taken care of, you can start caring for others. As it’s said ‘If you want to lift somebody up, you have be on higher ground first’. -Kiyosaki- Don't forget it is O.K. to put yourself first.
It is as simple as realizing that you have a choice and the decision is up to you. You shouldn’t hesitate to take opportunities, no matter how small they might seem. Because those small opportunities might cause a stream of new possibilities to arise later on and change your life for the better. Small decisions go a long way. The decision is yours to take.
Your beliefs hold great power. Start believing that you can do anything you put your mind to. It’s essential in order to better your life and reach your dreams, to develop a strong positive belief in yourself and your abilities. Every one has individual strengths, talents and passions. It is a matter of finding your strengths and making them work for you.
Set your goals and begin to work towards them, now. Don’t wait for an opportunity to present itself, for if you’re not willing to act now, it never will. Without goals, without committed action, without mistakes, you will never make a change in your life. Now is the time to take action and change to seek the life you've always wanted.
