Do you ever feel guilty?
Not because you have done something wrong but because you have done and achieved something nobody hasn’t? You cannot help it sometimes, can you?
It is understandable. It is human nature to either feel guilty or be proud. Some people cannot take success well and you may be among them if you feel bad about the success you have achieved and a good life you are living.
Here are the reasons why guilt should not be part of what you are feeling:
You deserve it
It is not something handed to you on a platter. It is something you prepared for, spent time on, exert effort for and given your focus and attention to. You deserve it, and you should never question why nor feel guilty for reaping the fruit of your hard labor.
You worked hard for it
This is it. You have been rewarded for all the sleepless nights, blood, sweat and tears. You worked hard for it, and there is no question that what you have right now is yours and deservedly so.
You are worthy
Of course, you are. Do not doubt this. You should not feel bad about your success and having all things you want and more. You are worthy and valuable even before you had your success and you are still worthy after you have achieved it.
You are not selfish
You are far from being selfish. Just because you have succeeded does not mean you were or are self-centered. Successful people are not like this, no matter what other people say. Share your blessings, be ready to help others and always, always be yourself.
It is your time
You have waited long enough, and you worked so hard to be where you are today. It is your time to shine, and you should not have doubts about this. Relish your success and keep working hard and you are here to stay.
Show yourself you are more than the success you have achieved and be happy with how far you have come. Success is yours not because of anything but because you are rewarded for the things you did.
