Now is the time to put myself first. All my life I have been neglecting my own needs and not taking care of myself. I quickly realized that if I put myself first, the easier it would be to elevate and succeed in life. Taking care of yourself is the pathway to fulfillment and high performance in life. Many think putting yourself first is an act of selfishness but it is in fact the opposite. If you are happy, your loved ones will observe that positive energy and absorb it as well. As subtle as it may be, this power is extremely significant and does not only benefit you, but others around you as well. Being overwhelmed with other people problems can burn you out. You deserve to take a break otherwise you cannot enjoy life. If you do not put yourself first, then nobody else will.
