Do You Believe What You Think?
If you work toward what you dream, the dream can come true. You can achieve success. You can tell others one day about your success story.
It's a better place to live than in the isolated place where you feel the pain of depression and the frustration of not getting what you want and need.
If you really want something, who knows how it can happen for you. But you have to take some form of action, even if it is only to write down what you desire or hold an earnest conversation with yourself about what you want in your life.
Any plan is better than no plan. Inaccurate plans will later lead to more accurate plans.
Any action is better than no action. Hesitant action will later lead to bold, decisive, effective action.
Nothing happens until something moves. And you have to be the one who makes it move. As you move forward, you can refine your attempts.
In the place of emotional poverty, people think of themselves as failures. They think that the things that they want are not possible for them. The fable of abundance is for other people, but not for them.
Yet is it true?
Do you find yourself believing the story you tell yourself?
In your story, other people are to blame, and the world is uncooperative, and you are too helpless to do anything about it.
In your story, you tried and failed, or someone let you down, or something bizarre happened just before your big break.
Is your story true? Is your interpretation of the flow of events absolutely accurate? How does it make you think and feel when you tell yourself how things could have been or should have been?
How empowered do you feel when everyone involved in your drama, including yourself, must bear the blame for your current suffering?
If you believe what you think, then suffering is inevitable. Do you honestly believe that you are a miserable failure? Is your life really a tale of failure to thrive?
When we question what we believe, we can find a great freedom to experience life in a more wholesome way. Abundance in life is possible.
