How to Know that you are the one you are waiting for, let’s see what is next?
Learn from your rejections:
After facing several rejections, I have decided that you are degrading yourself, worth self-esteem, and integrity if you measure yourself by other people’s standards. No one is perfect, including you, and no one is imperfect either; this is a crucial part of the equation 99% of people forget when they are categorizing themselves with others.
As humans, we are evolutionary, revolutionary, creative, innovative, and growing mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Nothing is the same as it was created. Humans are continually increasing, and our journey is to be a better people and not the perfect person.
Perfectionism is a misuse of our imagination and creativity. Creativity is all about small steps taken daily towards our destination, while perfectionism is a long jump in which we only break our bones. With broken legs, we are not capable of doing anything so guess what will happen? We will remain in the same place where we were before. No progress equals death.
I was a chronic perfectionist; I believed that there would be a perfect moment for things to be done. I waited for that perfect moment when all my sorrow and worries will end; my bills will be paid, I will have my own business, and my family will be happy at that moment I will devote myself to creativity.
It didn’t happen in years, and I was stuck in my dreams and my bills. That perfect moment was not going to happen. After years of dwelling upon my sorrows and misfortune, I suddenly realized that if I die at this moment, what will be parting with me, my dreams; hopes, inspirations, motivations, knowledge, experience, and creativity will be lost forever.
Start acting on your ideas:
From that time up to this time, I recognized myself as an avid reader and a kind of crazy person, who read any book available to me. Then, I started my writing. I planned for writing books on social, political, and psychological issues, short stories, novels, dramas, poetry, and education.
I even listed their names, titles, subtitles, and cover pages after completing my graduation, when I was hungry for success and financial freedom and was rejected by almost every major employer. I decided to end my unfinished work. Now my planned, 80% of the work has been completed and published.
Dreams come true
Now I have my own business, happy family, and friends; I can share my ideas, thoughts, and dreams. I no longer need job security because the job is not the only source of my income. I love my work, and now I believe that ‘’ do what you love, and the money and everything else will follow.’’
Law of attraction in action:
When you decide to work for yourself, the whole universe creates positive energy to fulfill your dreams. When I remember that time, I smile and say to myself if I knew that this would happen to me when I follow my heart, I would never waste my precious time on unhealthy thoughts and feelings.
The good has yet to come:
If I didn’t experience those fears, pain, and frustration, how would I achieve my goals? Let me tell you this; at that time, I somewhat locked up myself in my apartment for many days; I didn’t want to go outside. I had a few friends who could not understand my situation and left me one by one. When I looked beside me, no one was there for me.
Choose to fight alone:
I chose to fight alone with my challenges, frustration, and depression. I did it, and I win every time because my motto was that it is not over until I succeed; this was my story. Remember that you are the one and say to yourself again and again that you are the one.
Make it autosuggestion:
When you go to sleep and get up to say to yourself again and again until and unless it becomes your internalized autosuggestion, one day you will know and feel that you are the one.
Take full charge of your life:
Don’t allow others’ opinions of you to destroy your inner peace. Don’t let the expectations of others decide your character and destiny. Take full charge of your future; it is not easy but necessary.
Work on yourself:
Work on yourself, and make improvements, minimize your weaknesses. Create yourself through trial and error and whenever you look in the mirror, say to yourself, as many times as you want to say, ‘’ I am the one, I am the one’’. You will know that you are the one you are waiting for, hurry up! Hug yourself and kiss the mirror you are looking at now. With best wishes, have good luck!
