Your Strength Lies Within
Everyone has the potential to be great and what you feed into (positive or negative) weighs heavily on what the outcome may be. When you don’t reach that greatness it doesn’t mean you don’t deserve it or it’s not part of your destiny. It could be that you are feeding into the possibility that “you can’t” succeed rather than “you can” and that mindset is something we can build ourselves through fear and insecurity. Fear can seem overwhelming because in our minds we’ve built it up that big, but we have the ability within us to change that obstacle from a mountain to a mole hill, it’s all perception.
“A change of feeling is a change of destiny” - Neville
I believe that a large part of “taking control of your power” is found within being vulnerable, even though that vulnerability feels scary, it’s ultimately empowering. The reason it’s empowering is because it takes a great deal of courage to embrace vulnerability and allow the chips to fall where they may. Being vulnerable helps you discover that you innately have a reserve of strength to draw from that you didn’t know was there and that experience is not only empowering but also humbling. We don’t always give ourselves the credit we deserve when it comes to our own personal power. It’s hard enough when another person is discouraging by not believing in you but when you also do not believe in yourself you begin to limit your life opportunities and options and that’s just not right.
My personal inner voice and reaction to anything fear based and negative is that “I am not going to let it conquer or defeat me”, I will persevere, backing out is not an option!
My positive mind says “No Way is fear going to be allowed to win. Turn around and go back where you came from, you have no business here!”
Negative thoughts like fear or failure don’t stand a chance when you affirm with yourself and the universe that you’re strong and you’re not giving up. Things only occur because we acknowledge their presence in our existence, everything start with a thought. Don’t think negatively and negative things will not occur.
By following Neville’s Law of Assumption you can increase your success in any or all areas of your life that you want to improve:
“If this assumption is persisted in until it becomes your dominant feeling, the attainment of your ideal is inevitable”
Once you’ve accepted yourself for who you are, others will also accept you for who you are. When you begin to accept and believe in yourself you won’t put as much emphasis on needing to feel accepted by others and that ease of contentment and peace is a quality that others will gravitate toward and relate to.
I always love hearing a good line from a movie and my most recent that I want to share with you is one that I thought was very inspiring and something we should all aspire to, it’s similar to my own thoughts about having faith in humanity. The more people believe in others, the more others will rise to the occasion.
“I like to think that if you put your trust out there, I mean if you really give people the benefit of the doubt, see their best intentions that they’re going to want to live up to it. It doesn’t always work out but more often than not I think that if you do, people will rise to the occasion. I really do believe that!”
