Everyone must always be open to new opportunities. Self-appreciation and discovery is quite possibly the most important aspect contributing to a sound state of mind. For encouragement to be received an individual must be in a sound mind frame to receive it. Anne Frank reminds us of the necessity of encouragement. People need to realize that the path ahead is not always paved out for us Many times in life I have found uncertainty to be the only certainty that remains constant. Much changes from day to day and a person must always try and maintain their enthusiasm. Every day new challenges arise and a person must be open to the new opportunities that become available to them. It is true that nobody really has any idea what he/she is capable of. I try and remember Anne Frank’s words whenever I find myself becoming overly concerned about the future. It is okay for a person to give themselves a pat on the back for all of the accomplishments that he/she has made over the last year or several years. The encouragement that can be gained can be instrumental as a person proceeds forward. I believe that we all have a responsibility to share with others when indeed we have found a positive way to live a portion of our lives. I believe that people hold the key for others to be encouraged. I say that with caution because at the end of the day each and every one of us is responsible for our own encouragement. Surrounding ourselves with inspiring people certainly does help. We each have to know ourselves and realize the responsibility that we have to ourselves to engage in positive interactions and realize that we are able to obtain encouragement from ourselves and the way that we think. Perhaps when at a lull of how to think we should be able to give ourselves positive talk and encouragement to proceed forward through our days. It is extremely encouraging to consider that there is no glass roof over our head. Every day we should work to be better and improve upon our best self. There is forever another personal goal to accomplish. We all have undiscovered potential no matter where you are in life. I am hopeful as I seek to never become complacent with my self-learning. I thank you so much for reading!
