These are my 25 thoughts on being a King.
Some of them are inspired thoughts that came to me as a result of reading:
a. The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene
b. Wild at Heart by John Eldredge
Both of these books are great reading and I highly recommend both (if you have not already read them).
If the following pointers spark your intellect, then do not hesitate in starting a conversation below. I would love to hear your thoughts. Enjoy, hope it helps.
will you be the king?
Be A King
Act as if you already possess what you want. It will surprise others and they’ll think that you have come a long way and “It’s in your destiny.”
Never be angry. Anger is a sign of insecurity. Practice calmness and self-assurance.
Never be arrogant. Arrogance and being confident are two opposite poles.
While you are a self-confident king, remember that you still RESPECT others with dignity.
Share people’s goals and values, but never their generality or appearance.
Be tolerant and accepting all, no matter what the circumstances may be. You’ll win many hearts.
How you carry yourself reflects what you think of yourself. And, this is how people will read you too.
It is within your own power to set your own price. Set the highest price.
Be overcome by your own self-belief. If you act like a king you are likely to be treated as one.
Always act differently from the mass, with a sense of nobility and dignity, no matter what the circumstances may be.
Our limitations are actually self-imposed. If you believe you are destined for great things, your charm will radiate outward. Others around will then only notice it and in turn, will amplify and magnify your charm.
Your high-expectation and super-confidence is your charm.
People feel comfortable in the company of bold and confident people. Be bold.
If you devalue your own self-worth, it might appear amusing at first but then becomes irritating soon to the public. People want to become powerful. If you appear weak you break their hope instead of helping them build their own.
If you are big (larger than life), then people expect you to be a bit of showman, to have some unique, creative and confident presence.
Come to hold yourself in awe, never losing your self-respect and you’ll have a great destiny. Never show doubt.
Always keep a dignified pose (even when attacked publicly or in private), as if completely unaffected. This will elevate your image. Behave as if you have all the time in the world to respond. Being unafraid of time (being extremely patient) makes you extremely powerful.
Always make a bold demand. By choosing a great goal in life you create an appearance of greatness.
Ask for more and you send a signal that you are worth a king’s ransom. Even those who turn you down respect you for your confidence and that respect will eventually pay off in ways you cannot imagine.
Speak less than necessary. Never advice others unless asked. Stop when asked or given hint in simple talking or amusing discussion. Never argue or debate. A king knows who he is and never argues to win others to his side.
If you create a mess, don’t try to fix it. If you try to fix it, you’ll only create a bigger mess. There is no mess in this Universe, only purpose and learning. Learn from the Universe. Let the Universe and time take care of your fault. All you carry from an error is a piece of learning and self-improvement. But don’t repeat or create the same mistake again.
Respond to all situations (related to people): by love, acceptance, gratitude, friendliness, and non-judgment. Know that, everyone wants to be loved. They all have been intolerated somewhere, judged and not-understood mostly. If you love them they will open up. Accept them, relate to them and do not judge them.
Give people the hope of justice but what actually they desire most is the love. Give them the hope of love and whatever they want if they show patience. Guide them to create something valuable for the reasons they wish must appear. It will not only give them time but it will heal them. Distract them from their problems and you will eventually increase their self-worth and self-confidence.
To be a King, you need to rescue a Queen. Just as a queen has some choice and power over her destiny, you too have an innate power to demonstrate. Pursue the queen. Don’t fall for others on the way.
A king has a noble battle to fight and an adventure to live. Start loving the journey. A journey full of struggle is far more beautiful than a safe and boring home. Make the journey your school; the encounters your teachers. After you have hit your goals and have rescued the queen, you should settle for a home but only for a little while. Get the queen with you on your next adventure.
What belongs to you will eventually come to you, in its own time. There is no hurry. What you want to truly achieve is where you got to put the focus, time, and energy. Once clear about your goals and directions, begin the work! Expect results. But if unrewarded, don’t feel betrayed. The Universe has plans to pay you back.
What do you think? Do you want to add your own thoughts to this list? Until then, stay safe. See you next time.
