Were you judged wrongfully OR did you judge your start wrongfully?
Your beginning was a very important part of your journey, no matter how the beginning was. You had to start somewhere!
I use to be angry with my parents (in my mind), mad at God (when I’m alone) and worst mad with myself (couldn’t see the purpose) and ask ‘why me’ because I was blind to the fact that it was a part of the preparation.
Have you overlooked your preparation? What have you made it through?
You may want to start reflecting on your life to see what you have been through. Your purpose may have been well wrapped up in it. With that be said, a bad start in life is not really bad especially if later on in life you then see how well it has shaped you into the person who now exemplifies extraordinary qualities.
Some of the extraordinary qualities that came as a result of the bad start:
It helps to develop grit/resilience
The less than privilege (which later turn out to be a privilege) start in life really allows us to see and show that tough times don’t last but through our adverse situation the toughness develops. Also, through this process one become solution oriented.
It helps to solidifying the power of our imagination
Because of the adverse situation from which most of us started from we had to utilize our mental faculty to create something different. We have to see ourselves being who we want long before we actually are. It is through the daily envisioning of seeing ourselves having a better life then the power of our imagination will eventually gain strength.
It helps to build strong character
Most of these individuals who started out without all their basic needs met have realized on their journey that they will have to start creating their perfect moment even without them having a perfect moment to create from. This is where discipline and positive mental attitude serves a great purpose.
It helps to develop the attitude of gratitude
The desire for a better life will be seen by the people around you through your effort. What happens is that when an individual make it beyond lack and limitations their response will always include, “I have to thank this or that person, Mr …or Miss… for the support”. These individuals know that it wasn’t just because of their effort alone they made it.
It helps to develop self-reliance
Starting from a humble beginning helps one to be resourceful. That is, they use whatever is at hand to start the creating process of what they what needed to be experience in the future. These individuals start doing for themselves by themselves before anyone else believe in them.
It helps to build courage
What happen is that, these individuals have to take action despite of the situation or even how they have they feel in a given moment. They realize that if they want to change their life they will have to believe in themselves. It is the believing in oneself that lead to taking action which helps with building up the courage within.
It helps to give life meaning
The moment you realize that you are experiencing what you are experiencing because you are strong enough to experience the experience your life suddenly have a different meaning. That’s when the purpose of living becomes evident.
Even with a bad start you are still expected to run.
IT IS POSSIBLE TO GO BEYOND LIMITATIONS. IT MAY NOT BE EASY, BUT IT IS POSSIBLE.
