Focus On Yourself And Not Others? (One of the Best Speeches Ever) ft. Eternal Explorer


there will be days where you will ask yourself where is all this going what is the purpose what is my purpose in high school I thought I’d discover my life’s purpose when I could answer that age-old question what do you want to be when you grow up no in college I thought I would discover it when I could answer what’s your major not quiet I thought that maybe I discover it when I found a good job then I thought I just needed to get a few promotions that didn’t work either I kept convincing myself that it was just over the horizon around the next corner nothing worked and it was really tearing me apart part of me kept pushing ahead to the next achievement and the other part kept asking is this all there is I’ve often said that I wished people could realize all their dreams and wealth and fame and so that they could see that it’s not where you’re gonna find your sense of completion I realized one night in LA that the purpose of my life had always been to free people from concern I can tell you from experience the effect you have on others is the most valuable currency there is when you work towards something greater than yourself you find meaning you find purpose when you keep people at the center of what you do it can have an enormous impact all life is interrelated we are all bound together into a single garment of destiny but under the sky under the heaven man there is but one family it’s also happen then that people like your food that’s the only thing that’s important really letting each other know we’re here reminding each other that we’re part of a larger self deep inside of you lives a hero who wants to do something great with your life who wants to inspire other people who wants to do creative work who wants to change the world maybe are so numbed out that you’ve forgotten who you truly are to the fact that you are alive today means there is a mighty call on your life to do something with the rest of your life when your condensed that your cause is riled have the courage to take a stand use your minds and hands and your hearts to build something bigger than yourselves if you see a problem or an injustice recognize that no one will fix it but you a change in the world that seems so clear that you are sure someone else is going to do it but they’re not you will ideas don’t come out fully formed they only become clear as you work on them you just have to get started how will you serve the world what do they need that your talent can provide that’s all you have to figure out I want to do good I want the world to be better because I was here I want my life I want my my work I want it to mean something if you are not making someone else’s life better then you’re wasting your time when you wake up in the morning and your life means something to somebody other than you that you have a purpose if you don’t go do the things that you’re gonna do people’s lives will suffer to live in service not to you but to live in service to humanity to live in service to your family to church to your city to your country to the world that is the purest form joy tear down that mirror that makes you always look at yourself and you will be able to look beyond that mural and you will see the millions of people that need your help reaching out and helping people who bring you more satisfaction than anything else you have ever done measure your impact on humanity not in lies but in the lives you touch not in popularity but in the people you serve there is so much out there conspiring to make you cynical people will try to convince you that you should keep your empathy out of your career don’t let that noise knock you off course I found that my life got bigger when I stopped caring what other people thought about me yours will to stay focused on what really matters when I look around I always learn something from that it to be always yourself and to express yourself to have faith in yourself to express oneself honestly not lying to oneself and to express myself honestly know that my friend is telling how to do everything you gain in life will rot and fall apart and all that will be left of you is what was in your heart don’t let anything stand in the way of the light that shines through this form risk being seen in all of your glory you are ready and able to do beautiful things in this world you will only ever have two choices love or fear choose love and don’t ever let fear turn you against your playful heart can contribute to our not approving our dreams so I’m not feeling good enough a lot of things can contribute to that many of us never live up to our potential or don’t approve ourselves because we’ve never had anybody to believe in us looking at some of the things that keep us from approving ourselves that we’ve all done some things and we don’t feel good about things that if we had to do those things over again we would not do those things or we would do things differently so part of what we must do in order to begin to move into your greatness you got to remove a major energy block and that is dealing with the issue of forgiveness people that have hurt you someone who’s done you wrong make a list and things that you have done that you you feel bad about that you regret make a list there may be a time when you weren’t a good father a good mother a good brother a sister or you you were a bad shallow you didn’t do a good job or you lied or you were just honest so you stole no one knows this but you or something you feel good about so you know it’s a real dog in me to do that something you just really regrets and we make a list of all those things all of us have some of that might say there is some good and the worst of us and some bad and the best of us so none of us escape now here’s something I want you to do I want you to become involved in an active process to get some clutter out of your life so if there’s any area in your life that you need to clean up there’s some people whose cluttering up your life they serve no purpose whatsoever they’re just holding and occupying the space that somebody useful positive nurturing and contributing could be holding that space you’ll even have time to look to see what else is out there because you all have all of these people surrounding you that’s not in enabling you to grow so look at what is it I need to get out of my life just start cleaning this stuff out see whatever you have in your environment is a reflection of your consciousness so you got all that chaos there that represents some disorganized cluttered section of your mind so let’s get all this out of there all right work to get that out clean that up anybody that you feel very strongly about have some negative feelings about let’s look at some good reasons to forgive them number one you must try and see what has happened or see things from that other person’s point of view if look at it from their point of view that’s that’s one area that’s number one then number two holding a grudge hurts you it doesn’t hurt them so just for good health and peace of mind let it go any feeling of the resentment of anger or hatred is called to me the load of bitterness within every thought that we entertain produces a chemical in our brain that impacts the body’s immune system and besides this person you are hating it probably I’m not even aware of it don’t even know you are really hating them you’ve turned up the steam loan from this life to hate intensely and here you are killing yourself making yourself vulnerable to various types of illnesses putting yourself in bad health and I say that person is not worth your sacrificing your health or one minute of peace of mind one minute of anger robs you of 60 seconds of happiness so decide it doesn’t matter let it go and experience the dignity and the magnanimous sense of character of being big enough to move on and get on with your life letting it go so you can grow see what all of us have greatness within us but when you don’t come to grips with your greatness and you don’t work to develop it if you’re not seeking it out if you’re not finding where it is if you’re not trying to locate it if you’re not experimenting with your life to try and find out what’s fits for you I’m saying that you’re positioning yourself to be a miserable person an unfulfilled person how else do we do it procrastination we just put things off over and over and over again why because we haven’t accepted it we don’t feel deserving we don’t feel that we’re good enough so we sabotage ourselves by not ever taking care of business we get real busy doing a lot of things what we don’t have anytime we start doing so many things we just give our time away until we don’t have any time for ourselves or any time to do the things that we want to do and every time you put it off and move it back well I’ll do it one day all year I’m gonna get to it I’m saying to you that one day you look around and there goes the year there goes two years there goes three years so there’s something you want to do do it now do it right now don’t put it off start right now where you are there will never be a perfect ideal time whatever you have going for you right now that’s enough work on that idea work on it work on it work on it watch out with the relationships you have what kind of person are you becoming because of the relationships that you have right now do those people contribute to you do they help you grow and develop yourself what kind of person are you becoming people who have not accept greatness for themselves these people don’t study ladies and gentlemen these people don’t study they don’t have time for personal growth and development then have time to work on their minds know they’ll have time for that too busy for that to determine the height of your self approval it’s important that you evaluate yourself because you know you quite well but it’s almost impossible to do it totally by yourself you must get some caring feedback find somebody close enough to you that has observed you of it around you that you value their opinion and ask them how do they see you how do they rate you in terms of your self esteem and then compare what you have with what they say see there are things many times that people can see in us that we can’t see because it’s a blind spot when someone pays you a compliment can you handle it well can you handle compliment slow that’s a good barometer about your self-esteem can you handle criticism well can you give criticism what are your expectations what do you expect to get from life what do you expect to get from your business what do you expect to get from your relationships what is your ideal day what is it that you expect from this experience this trip this journey that you’re involved in people that that have a strong sense of self approval they have high expectations for themselves and from life and from others see a lot of people don’t expect much from life so they don’t shoot for much they’re not preparing for much a lot of people just showing up in life a lot of people just get up in the morning and they go through the day they go to the job just to pull a check down watching the clock coming here so you want to be a different kind of person as you forward your life you want to get something out of this if you’re going to do it it’s worth your time your energy you’ve got some expectations from this so examine your expectations versus your wishes some people wish they could do better but some people expect to do that were you on that I love yourself make caring for you the highest priority in your life take care of you look out for what truly satisfies you we’re not taught to love ourselves we’re not taught to look out for ourselves we’re not taught to take care of ourselves to become sensitive to our wants to our needs our desires so make a conscious effort make you number one priority your peace of mind your health is more important than your family in any and everybody because if you don’t have peace of mind if you don’t have your health you can’t serve anybody don’t neglect yourself a lot of us in particularly ladies have been groomed to be sacrificial lambs putting their dreams on the back burner in deference to their children’s dreams or their husband’s dreams or their family’s dreams and forget about themselves then become resentful and angry and bitter so start taking care of yourself looking out for you develop a health plan your help is all you got so start taking care of you eating nutritious meals willing to exercise your body taking care of this body loving yourself so do some good stuff for yourself on purpose take some time out for you you can’t develop and manifest your greatness you can’t be a high achiever if you don’t feel good you don’t take care of yourself it takes the edge off your life it helps you to manage things rather than allowing them to manage you gives you more personal power to deal with stuff take care of you now here’s something else I suggest for you become aware of what your needs are and develop compassion towards yourself despite your human defense develop compassion for yourself despite your human defense you will never be perfect hello you will never be perfect you’re human you’ve made a lot of mistakes you’ve done a lot of dumb stupid things guess what you’re not through yet you gotta learn to be gentle with yourself make it alright what you don’t know mistakes that you make it’s okay handle it learn from the experience decide that you are going to whatever you become involved in to be upfront to be true to yourself are you getting what you need out of it and be upfront with people and tell them what you need from them don’t assume that they know don’t say I thought you knew no tell people upfront here’s what I need from this in order for this to work for me be upfront with your stuff tell them upfront so they are not surprised later on so your feelings aren’t hurt later on see if they tell you upfront they can’t do it now you know you can keep on stepping but tell people upfront here’s what I want in order for me to play this game with you if we’re going to dance this is what I got to get out of it see if you don’t take care of your needs guess what you will always have that nagging song in the back of your mind say well when do I get mine see we’re taught to be quiet and not speak up for ourselves not to be selfish if you don’t take care of you what do you think is going to take care of you who’s gonna look out for you better than you will no one’s gonna do that you got a business no one’s gonna take care of your business better than you nobody nobody anything you want to do in life you’ve got to take ownership of it so hey I’m gonna make this happen be willing to venture out and do something that you have fantasized about doing and you know you probably won’t be good at it but do it anyhow

  1. This is how people loosing themself as God's creation.
    The most difficult in this life is to be YOURSELF , regardless what other people think about you.
    To make the other people happy isn't you responsibility. The same as o one came into this physical life to make you happy. This is your responsibility and share your happiness with other.

  2. This is actually what I’m going through. I thought I discovered my purpose when I graduated college and worked in the field but it wasn’t for me. I was overworked and underpaid. I was not happy. I started a small business after leaving my last job but I have up and down days. I especially have ALOT of down days and I’m not sure if this is my purpose if this is what I’m suppose to do. I feel like I’m not doing enough. I’m very lost.

  3. I have been working 2 jobs 2 years February. I'm a housekeeper & silverware prep. I've had to go back and forth between both jobs for a straight week with no sleep and no car. I keep pushing forward. Sometimes I get angry because the people I live with are incredibly lazy and expect me to pay their bills & my own. Sometimes I feel like giving up.

  4. Law of hypocrisy, you focus on others viewing this video. You focus on others more than the person you are telling your bullshiet to.

  5. I am taxi drive . I work 12 hours day 6 day a week . But like this motivation it meek me to believe my self ,I all ways file happy all ways bleave I can be buter that ,I bleave I am .

  6. The true way to motivate yourself is to motivate yourself in a way that motivates others saying we can do this anybody can do this I believe in you I can do this and so can you if you're gonna motivate yourself the best for the motivation in my opinion is to motivate others with you

  7. am I the only one that doesn’t expect much in life but after listening to this, damn I have never been more stressed 😩

  10. Focus just on myself. So u implying just to watch every female round here n get killed n raped under sharia law n codes n have no rights all because you dont trust your neighbors n trust a tv more than me? U men around here r some sorry ass hoes

  11.

Thank you les brown for all your help to me and many others when we need a little help back up in life ❤️xxx

  13. You are loved, beautiful, handsome, smart and intelligent❤️You’ll accomplish all of your goals stay focused and don’t give up❤️No one can stop you believe this and feel it❤️

  14. I’m on the last year of an Osteopathic school. My life got shaken. I recently divorced.
    I love helping
    disadvantaged people especially children. I want to redirect their destiny . Save lives from abuse and disease. Educate them, support their growth. My last 6 year I’ve devoted to helping children with disabilities in Tanzania. Built a small school, two wells , supporting with educational materials uniforms and shoes, household items beds ….
    I figured that this is making me the happiest. Giving, knowing that I won’t be re payed same way.
    Because of my school and divorce I am in debt.
    If I am to focus on myself, I could not help the poor children and communities in Tanzania. I am feeling strongly that my place is there . I have an idea but do not have a plan nor money. I’m praying for this to materialize so I can bring change to the world. 🇹🇿❤️🇨🇦🌍
    Please pray with me , for the means to bring people into my life, give me resource, ideas, signs that I can do what my heart and mind desire . I need a sign that I’m meant to help children of Tanzania. Asante Sana!

  15. This link motivates me a lot. Speak a lot like a bullets of truth that I needed most for my self to realize my self value I forgot most of the time. It's not about being selfish but to be MORE OF MYSELF, to priority to take back care of my own peace and self fulfilment so that people will see the courageous example of me as a strong person that will inspire them to become reminded about their own self value that only themself can fill up.

    Gotta be like a kind of person with strong self dignity, self care, self respect, self COURAGE, more FOCUS to my own accomplishment realizing that only true myself can tell and fill my own needs.

    I can do it! I just keep on stepping! I am a better person who can better take care of myself. GOD must be all the center and be glorified still in this life I have. GOD bless everyone! We can do it! 💖😇💯👏

  16. ADVICE FOR YOU! 👇👇👇👇

    • You’re probably stressing out too much!!

    Whatever you are worrying about understand this. It’s not the end of the world. Mistakes are ok to make, learn from them!!

    If it’s not meant to be it won’t work out no matter what you do and don’t do. Don’t try and replace doing something instead of doing nothing. As in the end it can amount to doing nothing.

    If it is. No matter what you do and don’t do it will work out. Don’t worry about the mistakes. Or ruining anything. As long you you BE YOURSELF without trying to correct problems that don’t exist outside of your own head. You shouldn’t worry about what you said or did. Because you were honest and genuine with yourself.

    And if it doesn’t work out when you are that way. It’s not meant to be.

    So don’t stress it brother.

  18. I’m 33 and I owned 2 different business in 2 different times of my life and on both of them I fell. The second one I put to much work strength time and sacrifice too many things and i fell. But now I know the reason I fell was because I didn’t sacrifice enough didn’t worked enough. I will try for the third time and this time will be my time.

  19. What bull shit life is all about you dont worrie about other people most are loser they dont have it in them be more than they are .

  20. Today was my mun…I didn't even say a word..but wrote chits….I am feeling miserable….this was the only thing I was confident of….my friends were excellent…I do acknowledge that faults are in me ..but why I am not that good???……they achieve it easily…it's inborn in them…..but why I am useless…….

  21. I really wish I could but I cannot. You see that I know what is coming and how to prevent. One day I shall marvel along humanity like I once did.

  22. I always think of others instead of thinking of my self… I am so tired of it right now…do you think being selfish and give my self a break is being mean?

  23. Since I started watching this kind of videos, it changed my life I start reading books I start thinking about the aim of my life its make me feel as a complete human being.
    Thanks

  24. From 9:00 min afterwards it really hit me❤❤ Too everyone out there struggling with accepting yourself dont worry I struggle with it too but from today onwards I'm going to try start being happy with who I am. Ik it's going to be tough but I ain't going to give up. So if anyone else out there is feeling the same dont worry we are in this together and we will figure it out and make it there together ❤❤❤

  25. This is Exactly my path and how this video was put together is EXACTLY how I would have done it!! I always wanted to put something like this together, but I am so happy someone did. The people narrating are exactly the people that have inspired me. I thank you for this. Please look for me because this is a pivotal time in my life where I can start to do something to build on my built in gifts. I am preparing myself to position to Inspire life to others using my life to do it. This video epitomizes exactly the message I want to pass on to others. It is my heart. I am working on learning speech and communication so that ai can. better Bridge the communication barriers I see that keep us from connecting effectively. This is Beautiful. Look for me. My name is Candice and IG @dragonfly.vision.photos portfolio and message me if you'd like. I have a capricorn aquarius cusp philosophy I am trying to incorporate in my captions. The reason is, learning about my zodiac (i was a real skeptic) Until it fit me so exact that I could not ignore it. I could not dismiss it. It Helped me finally UNDERSTAND myself and others and it gave me a Bigger picture! It Lifted something off of me that had been on me for Years. I thought, if only I understood this sooner! But now I do and I am excited for the second half of my life now!

  26. AMAZING, I listen to this as I work OT, keeps me pushing and reminds me of what I am and who I must be. I will love myself and manifest my greatness. like les brown said, "take care of yourself, and develop compassion for yourself, you will never be careful, you are not through yet".

  27. Struggling after work right now not to get Cocaine… prolly gonna go in a minute but know right now I do want to do more and not this. In the same circle everyone else is I just have ez access to this and love personal punishment… when and how will I ever learn…prolly end up dead in 2 months at this rate. Ill see how it goes

  28. The problem is i keep thinking for no reason to the point that i waste my day. At night before i go to bed i think what did i did today? Nothing 🙁

  29. That's why I have to laugh when the younger generations want to blame me for all their troubles. I laugh and go on about my business knowing that they are carrying all that hatred around and we just don't care. We are living our own lives.

  30. God is so great! Lay all your pain and sorrow before him. Get down on your knees before men/women in public and pray vigorously. Do not feel self conscious. You will be a child after the fathers own heart.
    God bless you all.
    I pray in Jesus name that if you see or do what I say above,others will see. And when they will see this the Holy Spirit will come to them,taken home to be spread to family/friends and enemies alike. Oh. …Jesus in your most holy name I pray, Amen!

  31. Will Smith succeeded, but his son dresses like a girl. He didn't spend enough time with his son. He was not present as a father, he didn't teach his kids to be more like him.

  32. i don’t like to watch these videos bc i feel like i miss out on the message it’s trying to tell me so i look away as if i’m listening to a podcast or something lmaoo

  33. I'm so proud of myself to say that it's only me and only me alone can change this entire world. If I don't do it, no one else will do it but I. So I start right after writing these words.

  34. I have had people who find me very interesting. I don't know what it's about, I assume it's people relating to a woman I had something to do with probably a long time ago, 15 years. It just makes me assume I just have left a deep enough mark, these people can't even touch it, so they look at me and scrutinize everything. This is like 15 years past. I don't know what it is. They want it, maybe they have it, but at the same time for some reason, they know I am untouchable in certain ways with the object of their affection, so they study the hell out of me wondering "what the fuck?" In reality though, it really is like 1000 things and all of them are genuine. You can say "well, ok 2 can play that game…" And try it out, but it's fake. It's unnatural. You didn't do it because you wanted to, you tried it because you thought it would get you something and it woun't work. It's insincere. It comes down to good taste. I don't even have to try, and I know if I really get her, nobody is ever measuring up. And that's the other thing, maybe they're just having a tough time getting in. Maybe it's impossible, which brings me to, maybe you should just give it up after 15 years? I'm a passionate die hard too, I love hard and it's hard to know when to fold em, but I mean….. I gave up after an 8 year struggle once but I only held on because I was pretty sure it was real.

    You're probably also barking up the wrong tree, In song talk to your woman. We don't talk anymore. I am no competition. I'm long out of that mess, and judging by the resentment and insecurity I sure as tuck wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole now. Yes sir please can I have extra stress and worry? Please? You're such a hassle to know, you have such a retarded group of malicious assholes and cunts in your life, probably more than ever l, of course I want to be part of it! Why not? I haven't been nearly driven into a mental hospital as a basket case in many years, since the last day I ever wrote you an email, I could use some excitement!

  35. I am Kathy.I am still really angry with all the wrong assumptions. I am still struggling to get back my identity. BUT I will be more Brave and more Patience to overcome my problems again and again until I can find my way to survive

  36. I know I can do it because all of my kind friends are here , standing by me at this very difficult time. I am not alone. You bright up my life . The real care and love can cure everything. I am the luckiest person in the world because of all of you. Thank you so much, my friends. 🙂

  37. I'm so happy seeing all this lovely ❤️ comments and replies.
    Maybe we can meet someday at somewhere to do great things together 👌
    I'm not lying I'm so happy to see good people like you all…
