You Can Do It
Sometimes we have been so conditioned by our negative environments and conditions that we can miss the opportunity to explore our own potential. Fortunately, we can break down those barriers that stump and stall us, and breakaway from that false way of thinking:
Commit to change. Whatever you know needs to happen to make you happier, do it. Plan it. Make it happen. Your negative thinking will continue to win your battles if you don't DO SOMETHING.
Shut down negativity and naysayers. There are always well-meaning people in our lives who tend to say the wrong thing and offer the wrong kind of support. We live with them. We work with them. They show up on the way to our dreams and destinies. It's senseless to react negatively. You're disappointed that they don't understand. You're hurt by what they say. You're second-guessing your decisions. Save that energy. It's put to better use when you apply it to your goals. Everyone won't get it, and that is okay.
Remove the barriers in your way. Fear. Uncertainty. Procrastination. These are all blocks to our achievements and success. Fight the fear in small steps. Make the call. Write the email. Make the inquiry. Talk to someone. Overcome uncertainty by knocking on a door. Research things. Learn what you need to know. Don't wait for a perfect time. Anytime is a great time to move the barriers. Once you get those out of the way, you will see your way forward a lot better.
Keep the vision. Keep the faith. Whenever it feels hard, or whenever you get discouraged, say "I can do this" over and over and over again. Picture it. Smile about it. Think about the finish line and what that is going to feel like. The vision say it's possible. Faith says "Yes, it is." ~S.R.F.
