How would you feel if you had no fear?
Feel like that.
How would you behave toward other people
if you realized their powerlessness to hurt you?
Behave like that.
How would your react to so-called misfortune
if you saw its inability to bother you?
React like that.
How would you think toward yourself
if you knew you were really all right?
Think like that.
Feel, Behave, React and Think. These four actions are somethings we do everyday, normally without thinking. We fear the unknown, we allow people control over our emotions, we take even the slightest blip in our day to heart and overreact , we get home after a long day of running, working, taking care of everything it seems and then we look into the mirror and see ourselves. We second guess decisions made, our thoughts, choices and then we swear that we will do better tomorrow. We will conquer, we will be fearless, we will let stuff roll off our shoulders and we will fall asleep content with what we accomplished. Then we wake up, and none of that actually happens, sounded good in theory but in a practical world.. yeah didn't happen. A cycle is born and the fear, the powerlessness permeate everything. We feel inadequate in the face of a challenge, we fall apart if something bad happens, and then we blame ourselves. That's life right, to be expected? Hell NO!
The more you identify and face your fears, the less power they hold over you. You got to face them. Then start your day, without any fears. Why worry about something that hasn't happened yet? Give no one power over you, period. I don't care who they are, the only person with power of anything you say, do or feel, is yourself. No one has the ability to hurt you, unless you give it to them. And why would you do that? Take your power back. Behave like that, own yourself. Stand up for yourself, and never give anyone your power. One of my favorite sayings is, Shit Happens. It does, and there is nothing you or I can do to stop it, prevent it or send it to someone else. You are going to hit bumps and glitches in life, some big some small, but hell, deep breathe, and roll with it. Do what you gotta do, take care of it. Cry if you need to, scream if you have to (my favorite) Hold yourself together, take care of it and realize that a glitch in your life, doesn't define it. Shit happens, you deal with it, then you move on. How would you think about yourself, if you knew you were alright? Here is my stunning revelation, you are. You are perfectly alright. You are who you need to be, who you were meant to be. If you want something different, then work towards it, you will still be alright. You want to make changes, great! You will still be alright while you are making them. Think like that.
You are your thoughts. Your thoughts are your life. Make them Random, make them strong, make them powerful and make them with the faith in yourself. You are definitely, alright. Breath,Believe and Receive.. then kick some ass.
