6.Compare yourself to yourself
If someone came to me, and ask me this question: “Why most people don’t believe in themselves?” I would answer him is because they are constantly comparing themselves to other.
Comparing yourself to others will create those nagging emotions that you’re not good enough, or not dot deserving to your own call, and that will make more stressful and anxious.
If you want to leave a positive and enticing life, compare your current self to where you were, that’s only you can control, and this will give you a sense of freedom, and completion.

If you’re not growing you’re dying. The best motivating factor in life is progress by learning and developing yourself.

I believe fervently that we are put here in the beautiful planet to create, innovate, and that’s the only thing that will give the sense of aliveness which is the root of happiness and joy.

Always remember happiness is by product of how many people you made happy. The more good things you put out there, the more you’ll receive of it.

The key to success and happy life is doing half dozen things, one thousand times, and not doing 1000 things half dozen times.
