The next time you feel unimportant or valueless, read this: inspiration for when you need it.
You Are Amazing
Did you know that Steve Jobs, co-creator of Apple was given up for adoption and dropped out of college? Did you know that Sir Richard Branson, creator of the Virgin brand of companies has dyslexia and dropped out of high school?
If you look at highly successful people you will see dropouts, people from broken homes, poor students, and failures. Yet they persevered, continued on and made a name for themselves.
We often don’t see our own potential because we’re stuck in the middle of our own problems, but let me give you some inspiration for when you need it. If you’ve had bad or missing parents, or trouble in school, or difficulty learning, congratulations! You share company with some of the most successful people the world has ever seen!
And if you haven’t dealt with any of those things, how great is your life! How much opportunity you have in front of you. You are full of amazing potential! Head out there and make the most of it!
You are Successful
You are a lot to celebrate. You’ve done a lot to get here. Chances are highly likely that you’ve finished 12 years of school. 12 years! Thats’ a lot of learning, homework, and tests.
Here’s some inspiration for when you need it: by the time you turned 12 you more than likely walked enough to get from one coast of the United States to the other. You have tons of potential!
You can read, create, make jokes (even if no one gets them), make plans, show compassion, and change someone’s life for the better. If you really sit and think about it, you will see how much you’ve done and how much potential you have.
You Have Great Days Ahead
Abraham Lincoln lost a job, lost elections, failed at business, and had some major debt before he become one of the most successful presidents in US history at 50. Jack Canfield, author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series was rejected by 144 publishers before publishing the original Chicken Soup for the Soul at 49 and eventually becoming the most published author in history. History is littered with people who failed greatly before they succeeded wildly.
Here’s some inspiration for when you need it: you have great days ahead! There is so much potential in front of you. There are so many ways you can accomplish wonderful things. Whether it takes more steam, a different perspective, or a new direction, a great future is available. Reach out and grab it!
