Being A Man Of Principle Puts You One Step Ahead In Life

And it is possible to be a principle person with patience and self-discipline

How many of you thought that You are a principled person? Or let me ask another question. What does principle mean for you?

A principle simply is a kind of rule, belief, or idea that guides you. From my perspective, principle is one of the most important thing to one person should have.

It might come difficult and bad when heard first, especially for those who usually do not like be guided or ruled someone or something.

I am saying that If you understand how it works and how you can build your own principles, you will see achieving the steps of success and satisfaction in every part of your life.

I know that, because it worked in my life, but let me warn you, it wont be easy.

Here is a good quote about it by Kweisi Mfume:

“Too often people enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought, never taking a principled stand. True justice will never come until those who are not injured are just as indignant as those who are”

As Mfume says, to achieve what you want rather than enjoy the comfort of opinion you should accept the struggle and act in principle.

Too often people do not that, so only little deserve more.

If you want to be in that little group who deserve,earn,satisfying and happy, then get ready to be ruled by some good, struggle principles.

Let’s dive into which ones should rule us.

1- Be Willing To Follow Your Path Despite Life’s All Obstacles

First principle that should be followed is always being ready and willing to stand up to the challanges of life.

And yes this is a principle.

Look, every person has had good and bad times in their lives. Life is always it is. There will always good and bad times. Prepared for the bad ones and welcome the good ones should be the number one principle.

What could be better if you are ready and calm in all situations?

Lets pass the number two principle.

2- Give Your Best Effort To Everything You Do

No matter what is your current situation, probably you are not where you want to be for now but it should not effect your mood. At least, to reach where you want to be, you should show your best. You should do your best effort in whatever situation in you.

It can be business that does not meet with your expectations, for now, it can be a relationship that does not satisfy you, for now, it can be life issues that bother you for now.

As you see, whole the situations only for now. To achieve a better future or to reach your ideal situation, you should not give up on your current situation.

Instead, do what comes from your hands, give your best effort even if it does not satisfy you, for now, it will improve your long term plans and it will easiness to reach them.

This principle worked for me well, especially in my work which I did not like so much but gave my all effort had open unexpected gates in my ideal path.

3-Let Your Actions Speak Louder Than Your Words

Action!Action!Action!

Words are from the lips, actions are from the heart. – Rashida Costa

There are many people out there who give promises on somethings and not fulfills them. Words are easy to use, the truth is in our actions. For instance, saying ‘ I love You’ is good but if you do not show your love then it is nothing.

Let’s say you want to build a business for yourself, you say ‘ I am hardworking, able to create a business, able to face stress’ ‘ I will do whatever it takes’

It is easy to talk about what we are going to do, but it doesn’t mean anything until we take action and make it happen. I have a friend that is an expert at this. He talks and talks, has great plans, but where he lacks is putting those plans into action. – Catherine Pulsifer

I saw lots of benefits of this principle in my life. It directly increased the quality of my relationships, increased profitability of my business, and relations with others.

I am a type of person who listen more, speak less. My actions speak louder than my words.

Give it chance to put this principle in your life. You will see that your life quality will increase in every part.

In my life I usually try to make a point of being principled man. If there was good principle I took it in my life. If there is no for me, I built.

The main point here is patience and self-discipline. To satisfied in life it requires to be a principled man. Principles, on the other hand, require patience and discipline.

You should take them into your life to live a fulfilled life.
