Henry Ford

By Gurbani: Hey everyone! Today’s post is by Henry Ford, who you probably have heard of at some point. Henry Ford was an American industrialist. I am sure you have heard of his company, the Ford automobile business. They are known widely across the world.

Now that you know a bit about Henry Ford, we can get started on talking about his quote which i like a lot. I think that his quote can be interpreted as you like because it depends on your mindset. What my mind interprets from this is that if you tell yourself you aren’t good enough and don’t want to actually care about yourself, then you know what? Deal with it. You cannot expect to say all these things about yourself and when someone calls you out on it be mad about it. You are putting this on your self, and that is the harsh reality. Now this part may have seemed super non-motivational, but the reality is that if you believe in yourself and have confidence in yourself, you can actually do anything you want because if people doubt you that should give you even more motivation to prove them wrong.

That was a lot in one paragraph, wow. But my point is that you have to have confidence in yourself. Who cares if you don’t fit the standards that you think society has? Please learn to be good enough for yourself and not change yourself for others. Whether it is your eating habits, your body, weight, looks, religion, etc. Don’t, change, anything. Society these days can either be more hurtful, but they are starting to become more accepting. I promise you, if you have confidence in yourself you will only do things for yourself and not for others, as well as that will make you feel better about yourself.
