Life is hard and even more so in the midst of uncertainty, fear, and an unclear path for success-minded leaders. There are times when it just feels like giving up would be the most comfortable option. Some things cause you to fall out of love with who you are, what you want to accomplish in life, and your personal development journey.

There is trauma that may have started in grade school and carried into adulthood. It can be difficult life situations or other people putting you down, but you begin listening to doubt, fear, self-limiting beliefs, and external expectations. Loving yourself is essential because if you don’t, you’ll never have the confidence to do all the things you want to accomplish in your life. The best way to become the healthiest version of yourself is to embrace who you are and love every part of you. 

You can’t live in your comfort zone. Don’t coast through a good enough life because you’re afraid of what others will say or that you’ll fall flat on your face. Life is incredibly short and passes by each of us too quickly. The one guarantee is one day, we will all die. How we spend each day is important because time is finite.

We can’t make the most out of our time if we spend it not loving who we are and our path to success. Learning to love yourself truly opens the door to chasing big goals and making them a reality. 

Here are five ways to love yourself on the path to creating success and fulfillment in your life.

1. Quit a work situation that doesn’t bring value to you

Most people will spend 40 hours each week in either a job, business, or some hybrid work situation. With the state of the world, it’s most likely far more than 40 hours. That’s a massive chunk of your week doing something you either enjoy or that makes you miserable. You have to pay the bills, but you have to ask yourself, at what cost? How you feel about your work situation bleeds into other areas of your life. It may take you years to create your ideal work situation, but the sooner you start, the closer you are to waking up every day and hating how you earn a living. 

“When you treat yourself right, you run better and more efficiently. Which means you don’t have to go 100 miles an hour to get everything done.” – Ann Curry

2. Take your physical and mental wellness seriously

Your nutrition and how physically active you are have a tremendous effect on your success in life. Your health is one of the most critical areas in creating enough energy to take action. When you take it for granted, you won’t do what’s necessary to love yourself through healthy habits. You’ll feel off and won’t have the juice to create a happy and fulfilled life. 

3. Get honest about your relationship

Love can take us to places we didn’t know were possible in our feelings and life or lead to anger and resentment. You have to be honest with yourself. You have to acknowledge your relationships are meeting the goals for your life. If they aren’t, you have to make a healthy choice that will free your mind in the long run. Always continue to improve it and put in the hard work to make it grow. 

4. Spend time each day falling in love with life

We live in an ever digital world. Today, you can read books, watch videos, or listen to podcasts, all from your smartphone. We have access to inspiration and motivation 24/7. It’s important to set aside time every day for your personal development. Preferably at the start of your day, get inspired all over again. There are roadblocks on the path to freedom, fulfillment, and success, but this YOU time can help you overcome the hard stuff. 

“Do not be afraid to give yourself everything you’ve ever wanted in life.” – Frank Wright

5. Don’t conform to society’s definition of success

When you step outside of what society considers normal, you’ll experience resistance. It’s as if there needs to be some deprogramming. We’re used to a particular path, and when you disrupt that, you encounter fear. Your life should be spent doing things that are important to you. Don’t try to conform just because it feels more comfortable. 

You are unique and unforgettable. You are the only one of you in this world, and that should make you beam. You have the power to bring light to someone’s darkness. Don’t spend your life trying to conform to unrealistic expectations. Don’t try to be like anyone else. Embrace what makes you who you are. Love yourself fully. Never apologize for doing what makes sense to you.
