Encouraging yourself is more than optimism, is a huge part of what makes things happen. Don’t throw negativity at yourself, build yourself up. Through words and action than will get you where you want to be in life. Your coordinates are not fixed. Growth, happiness, wealth – nothing is fixed. Make it your goal to aim up and aim high.
If anything doesn’t go according to plan, what do you do? Do you complain and moan? Do you throw guilt around? Or do you regroup, reassess and replan? It may be easier to give up, but it’s harder to live your whole life without knowing that you’ve given your best. Every. Single. Time.
Have you ever planned for something and you stubbornly wanted that to be it? Plans are a starting point, just as a degree is only the beginning of life-long learning. Plans often lead to stronger ideas and more elaborated processes. It often is that a plan that we hatch and we think of as a masterpiece unleashes our potential. Our potential is unlimited and change is intrinsic to life. So plan today, review tomorrow and then implement it.
Have you ever had differences of opinion or found yourself outside of the norm? As challenging as it can be, take that as a sign of growth. We are all moving through life at different speeds and going into different directions. It comes a point when discovering who we are and who we can be is stronger than the need for validation. That’s the point where building a powerful life and a powerful you begins.
We’ve all witnessed global changes in the past few months and how they tie in with people’s ability to adjust, learn and grow. Building a temple of stillness within doesn’t lock out stimuli that help us grow, it helps us witness events calmly and move into a peaceful direction of growth. It is anger what keeps the teachings of outer events away and deprives us from self-development. When we negate the reality of other people and the state of the world and instead we use them as an opportunity to harvest anger, we choose involution over evolution. Our power comes from within and opening the doors to compassion and understanding is what puts our power at the service of the good.
Love and labeling don’t go hand in hand. As tempted as we may be to label feelings, reactions, people or things happening into our life, we have the power to set them free from patterns that harm us. We have the power to free ourselves from emotions that don’t serve us. Criticism of others or ourselves can only be useful when it brings actionable thoughts. On your walks or talks today, keep an open mind about whatever might come your way. Nothing can touch you unless you let it.
