BEING TOUGH ON YOURSELF

I have had the fortune to have had a tough life, which has molded me to the person I am today.

One of the quotes I treasure, and the reason I advocate in slow rise to success is the belief that ‘the skills you learn on your rise to success are the skills that will keep you there. ‘  Everytime I talked to an entrepreneurs conference, I take pride in telling them that I was child labor.  I helped in the family business, and at the age of nine, I was helping in the family gasoline station filling up the tanks of customers, receiving their payments, and going to the bank to deposit money and reconciling the bank statements.

This is the confidence I got, that having had a tough childhood and learning to be exacting on ourselves, we can handle and solve problem better.  And therefore we have to be tough also on the people around us, especially those we love. From my experience, I have always learned that , “Be tough on yourself, and Life will be easier on you. ” What does the quote mean? It means…

If you discipline yourself to spend money wisely, then you will have less problems on not having enough money.

If you discipline yourself to plan properly before executing, then you will have less problems doing rework…

If you discipline yourself to focus on learning a skill properly, you will have less problems getting a better paying job…

if you are tough on yourself to eat the proper foods, you will have less problems with your health later…

Sometimes, it is really because we become too easy on ourselves, that we encounter life’s toughest problems…
