Find Motivation To Succeed Through The Virtue Of Pride

Dec 25, 2007
Do you have something you are proud of? You are proud because you have achieved something good. This makes pride a good thing. Being proud of something is to have achieved good and to let others know about it. This is an admirable trait. When you have achieved good you should be proud to let others know it and toot your horn occasionally. Showing pride is showing a passion for your self and for life itself. Passion is the essence of life. We live fully by the virtue of pride.

Pride is a personal awareness and the acceptance of your personal power of mind and body. It is the propelling force that moves up the rungs of the ladder of life.

It is what compels you to continue the fight when you may be tempted to bow down to someone else's demands. Be mighty, be proud, continue being mighty proud because it is the proud who prime themselves for mastery of all things while the meek inherit slavery. Pride frees you. Having an attitude of being bigger than the obstacles in front of you will keep you from faltering. It is pride that pushes you through the barriers of life. It is faith in your abilities to achieve things you haven't before achieved, even when others tell you it is impossible. Those who have pride do not accept the controlling limitations that others set upon them; they set the rules for those who do not have pride in themselves.

Lions, the king of the beasts, live in prides. Their mighty roars tell the world how proud they are of their position at the top. Natural selection has smiled favor on lions as conquerors. It is the conquerors who shape evolution. These are the catalysts of the divine plans set by the supreme gods and goddesses. From conqueror to god nature rewards those who are bold and proud.

You are a manifestation of the pride of your ancestors. You are their legacy, what they have left the world to remember them by and you should be proud of all they accomplished in life. Your ancestors are called great and grand for a reason.

The natural outcome of honor is pride. We are honored by other people and even ourselves for accomplishments we have made and qualities we have. We can give others pride in themselves and their accomplishments by honoring them. We give ourselves pride by honoring our own accomplishments. Having pride means we have a purpose, a meaning and an overall integrity.

You have earned the right to be proud. You should be proud just to be alive; it is the strong who survive. Take pride in what you are; you are a human being which in itself means you are marvelous creature.

You have earned the right to be proud. It is the strong who survive. Be proud of all of your accomplishments, even life itself is an accomplishment. Be proud of being who you are and of being the marvelous creature known as human. You are a unique being. Be proud of who you are and of who you will become, it is your pride that is going to shape you into the being you become and the success you are in life. Being proud is being great and being great is being proud.

Pride is what gives you the standard of excellence you live up to and it is how you leave a lasting impression on the world. You can build your reputation by having it in yourself and all that you do.

Being strong willed, having determination, having an ego and pride all go hand in hand together. These are the factors that make you the man or woman that you are, the person who demands and is in demand. It is the flame in the fire of motivation. It is the devotion you have to liberated and ethical living. It is the strength and dominance that drives those who dare to unapologetically seize and flaunt their potential whether it be for the good of others or themselves.

Having pride means believing in yourself. There is a reason you exist. It is what makes you feel good and feel good about your accomplishments. It makes you feel good. Having a healthy self-esteem and self respect makes you feel good. You are a valuable, worthy person who deserves to have pride. It is pride that gives you personal power and satisfaction in yourself.

Having pride is always best since having it means being pleased with yourself and your accomplishments. Having pride in yourself is a good thing since no matter where you are you have to be there with yourself. It is like the old saying, "you can run but you can't hide". Having pride means you won't want to run from who you are, you will always be happy with yourself and what you have done in life. Things that make people happy and create pleasurable feelings are the things they do not run from.

It is the magnetic force behind the self-assurance that draws in good things. The good things in your life that you can be proud of because they are from your good works are what make you the great-awesome-fantastically-stupendous person you are.
