Two things I have learned over the past few months are as follows:
(Yes, I am keeping them short and simple. LOL)
- When people show you who they are, believe them!
People can only hide their true character for a short while. Of course, everyone is fallible. But, you should not excuse the same mistake more than once. Repeating that mistake should tell you what they actually think of you. People will never be just like you. (I think that is actually good!) People will not treat you the same way you would treat them Accept this. And still treat people well anyways.
- Whatever you put your mind to, you will achieve it!
I always heard this and never actually tried it out. I am proud to say I was able to achieve all the points on my list and even the little extra points I had on my lists. I am driven!!! You can try it out, too. For the next period of time, say 3 months, write down things you would love to see accomplished. Now, start working on what you need to do to achieve those goals. It is quite easy, once you are determined to make it happen. Carry your list around to remind yourself of your goals, if you have to.
