Getting your money’s worth

The fact is, we often pay much more for the expensive features that a product offers than we would if we simply purchased something that met the demands of what we needed it for. And then we often fail to get our money’s worth from this product because the expensive features we paid for were never the driving force behind why we wanted it in the first place.

A sentence on a page

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

If you’re not where you want to be in life, always remember that what you’re feeling is just a sentence on a page in an entire book that makes up the story of your life. And the general feel & outcome of your story is written with the actions you take on a daily basis.

Always be the best version of yourself

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

Refuse to let the decline of inspiring leadership, integrity, personal responsibility, and rational thinking deter you from setting the best example you can for others to follow. Don’t lower your standards to confront other people on their level. Always be the best version of yourself that you can be.

A key to lasting happiness

“Happiness depends more on the inward disposition of mind than on outward circumstances.” — Benjamin Franklin

Anytime one’s internal state is dependent on external factors, one’s emotional state becomes a slave to circumstances.

A key to lasting happiness (like inner peace and a stress-free life) is in not placing control of one’s happiness in other people’s possession.

If you can’t control it, don’t anchor your emotional state to it.

“Inner Peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions.”

Be the indispensable lead of your own life story

“If you don’t build your own dream someone else will hire you to help build theirs.” — Tony Gaskins Jr.

It’s better to be the indispensable lead of your own life story than a dispensable part of someone else’s.

Remember to live your life by choice not by chance.

“Don’t put the key to your happiness is someone else’s pocket.”

Have a purpose. Set goals. Aim high. And take action.

“When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen.”

Direct your life. Don’t just drift.

“The amount of satisfaction you get from life depends largely on your own ingenuity, self-sufficiency, and resourcefulness. People who wait around for life to supply their satisfaction usually find boredom instead.” — Dr. William Menninger

Don’t leave your sense of worth and well-being in the hands of others.

Excerpt from: Likability. Being liked and unliked.

If you want to reach your full potential, then you must learn to accept yourself for who you are & who you want to be and take personal responsibility for your life and how you feel.

And along the way to self-actualization, you must be prepared to be unpopular. Don’t leave your sense of worth and well-being in the hands of others.

Those who achieve greatness in life don’t let others dictate how they feel about themselves — and neither should you.

The next level

Despite expectations and intentions, everyone’s lives are occasionally punctuated with plateaus upon which little appears to happen.

Reaching a plateau in life is simply a sign that in order for things to advance to the next level, either you or something you’re doing must change.

“Change is not merely necessary to life, it is life.” — Alvin Toffler
