Go Out There and Do It Yourself

DIYHello. Me name is Zoey and I am a DIYer. The “do it yourself” or DIY industry has had such a boost lately. In the past few years, mostly because of the internet, most people are getting things done all by themselves. Be it from fixing cars, oil change, garage door repair, plumbing, building furniture, you name it, there is probably a YouTube video, a blog or/and a wiki on how to do whatever it is you want to do.

The Internet is the future. There is so much information out there about anything and everything. It has truly revolutionized the DIY industry. Recently I had an issue with my garage door opener. I went to YouTube and typed “how to fix my garage door opener” and there were many videos showing step by step on how to do this. The video is linked below. I checked everything, and it turns out my battery was out. Also i had no idea what some of the terms meant so I did a simple Google search and found a bunch of pictures like the one below.

Value Yourself First

How To Value Yourself

If you really want to make an impact in the lives of others you first have to believe in yourself. You have to believe that you have something valuable to share. By sharing it you will be making other people’s lives a little better. You really need to believe this. If you don’t see your own value, no one else will either.

How do you begin to value yourself more? Stop self-criticizing. You have to realize that these are all common human traits. Everyone procrastinates, everyone cheats on their diet or have done it once in their lives, everyone lies, everyone secretly hates that one person, everyone secretly wants to be that one person. So don’t beat yourself up too hard. You have to forgive yourself and move.

Mind you though, this doesn’t mean you keep doing it and keep forgiving yourself. At that point you have just found another excuse to procrastinate. You have to exert your willpower that next time you come close to self-criticizing or procrastinating.

Obviously if you are trying to go somewhere you can’t be doing the same thing you are doing right now. You can’t just sit in the car and expect to arrive at your destination, you have to start the car and drive yourself there. You have to take a road to get there. You may get lost if you don’t know where you are going, but you can always ask someone for directions or figure it out on your own. I know It is so easy to get directions on Google Maps these days with our savvy phones but unfortunately life doesn’t come with directions :(. Damn! I wish it did.
