Believe in the Possibilities

We can achieve a whole lot through action and through changing our mindsets. In order to be “productive” we should surround ourselves with positive people and positive influences. If we’re constantly in a state of negativity then our progress will be hindered. We really should set out to do better. It’s a wonderful thing to be apart of “growth.” We certainly have to believe in ourselves because if we don’t then who will? We can do great things but we must believe that we can.

Listening to negative communications could embed in our minds and that will cause us to stumble. It’s very important that we listen to those soothing melodies and listen to encouragement. Sometimes we have to stand back and just give a long sigh and then start again. Just because something is complex that doesn’t mean that it’s impossible. We’ve been given many gifts but it’s up to us to utilize them. If we allow our talents and gifts to go to waste then that’s so unfortunate.

Believe that we can do more then people say that we’re capable of doing. Go the extra mile. If it won’t help us develop then we may want to tune it out. If people are overly critical then we may want to tune them out. We can’t be productive if we’re constantly accepting everything that won’t help us in any way. In fact if it isn’t helpful to you or others then let it go. We can sometimes get stuck in the belief that just because someone says it, it has to be so, not true.

It’s possible but if we don’t work towards those goals then it won’t be possible. We will have to consider a whole lot when stepping out on the possibilities. How many people can we help along the way? Will our journey be beneficial to us and our families? If so then why shouldn’t we go for it? Those who tell us that it’s impossible are the ones who were afraid to try. Trying is a step. Sometimes we’ll have to take small steps in order to reach our destination. A little movement is better than none at all.

Make it Happen Despite the Twists and Turns

Life will challenge you. There will be times where you’ll have to push a little harder. No matter how hard things seem don’t feel defeated. Our thoughts may try to dicourage us from meeting our full potential. The ups and downs will come along and the ins and outs. We will have to duck and sometimes dodge.

The harder it is the more accomplished we’ll be. We must face the hardships but with determination we can get through them. Strength is generated through continuous action. When we’re in the war zone. We need to think of ways of coming out of it in one piece. Our abilities are great. Sometimes we become a bit fearful when we hit with lots of challenges at one time. If we don’t go through the mess then we won’t grow the way that we should.

We can surpass the hard stuff. We can overcome the negatives. Some will tell us that we’re not capable of doing this task or that task because they refused to withstand it. Be bold and jump over those hurdles. We’re built strong but because we allow our minds to get the best of us. We end up slipping. There’s nothing that we can not bare. We may think that we won’t do well with the challenges that come before us.

Don’t settle for anything less than excellent. If we don’t face adversity then we won’t reach excellence. Everyone won’t go through the same obstacles. We’re different and we’ll start different we may finish in different manner. Whatever we face, we’re built to face it, we shouldn’t feel as if we won’t come through it. There may be some scrapes and bruises but they will heal. Our mindset will determine whether we come through it like soilders. The troubles are somewhere waiting but we have the armor to defeat troubles. Be brave and get through it somehow.

Healing Takes Time

When we’ve experienced traumatic events in our lives we may become consumed with those events. It can be difficult to overcome them but it can be done. We may have to seek help from professionals because of the pain we’ve endured. It takes time to heal fron traumatic experiences. For some the pain could subside quickly and for others it can take many years.

Sometimes we hold on to pain because our pain hasn’t been validated. We need to know why the pain occurred and the healing has to involve more than an apology. No one is immune from experiencing hurt and pain. We deal with it in our own way and no one can tell us how long we should heal from our pain. The healing process depends on how in depth the pain is.

When we experience painful events it takes something out of us. We can get through it but the victim and the person and persons who caused the pain must acknowledge it. Some may feel as if they’re not capable of overcoming the pain and heartache. When we’ve suffered greatly we may not understand why the suffering took place. Once we have an understanding of it. It will be easier to get a hold of it.

We will have to endure hardships. It will help us develop. We may not want to go through the challenges and it’s difficult to suffer through. We may cry night after night until the hardships leave us. In time the process will be complete and we will bounce back to who we were created to be. If you’re going through. It will pass it may take years but in time the heartache will cease. Sometimes we may think we’ll never get rid of the hurt but we can and will if we want it to leave us. We must allow the healing to continue.

Be Comfortable With Yourself

We all could use some improvement and we should be thankful being who we were created to be. It appears that a lot of people are uncomfortable being themselves. We can’t pretend to be anyone else when God designed the way He wanted to design. Yes, we can make some changes, but we should be happy with who we are called to be.

If we are ubhappy with ourselves then we should find the reasons why we feel that way. It could be tgat we’re really unhappy with our circumstances and not unhappy with ourselves. We should find the root cause to what’s making us feel uncomfortable being ourselves. We were given a purpose and we can’t and shouldn’t change.

It’s not about changing ourselves. It’s about improving ourselves. We should be thankful because there’s people who are going through hardships and never wanting to change who they are. If we love ourselves then we wouldn’t want to be anyone else. We should be comfortable in our own skin.

If we feel uncomfortable with our environments then we can either leave it or change what is making us feel uncomfortable. The majority of the time it’s our situation and environments that create our stress and may have some believe that changing themselves will change the situation.

An example of this is a husband who emotionally abuses his wife. Because of the abuse the wife is uncomfortable with her circumstances but not with herself. It’s not about her wanting to be someone else. It’s about her wanting her situation to change. We should be unaware that we can’t change people. People have to want change but that doesn’t they pretendto be someone else.

Even if we pretend to be someone else that doesn’t mean that we are. We should love ourselves enough to know that we are who we are. Loving ourselves will eliminate the thoughts of wanting to be someone else. First we must love ourselves. It’s really about changing our situation and not changing who we are. We can’t be anyone else but ourselves.

“Be Yourself and Love it”

Be Brave on Your Journey

There’s way too many people who are forfeiting their dreams due to fear. What are they afraid of? It’s possible that they’re afraid of what others may say and think. It doesn’t matter what others say because they can’t live for you. Fear hinders and it cripples us in every way. When we decide to remove the fear and be brave then that’s when we’re in a position to go further.

How can we move towards something when we’re fearful? Of course when we do something out of the norm it will make people upset but that’s life. If we don’t take opportunities then we will regret it. It takes a lot of courage to live your dreams to challenge yourself to be better than before.

We should encourage others to aim high and encourage them to inspire others. People tend to lean towards fear because they’ve heard so many horror stories about others going after their dreams. Of course it isn’t easy but it is worth it.

Anything that offers us growth and improvement is worth the heartache and pain. We can’t expect great things by not going through the roughness. Fear takes a hold of ao many people. If we go through life being fearful then we won’t accomplish the things that will offer us “growth.”

We have to challenge ourselves and we can’t do that if we’re fearful. There’s always someone who will try to encourage us to be great. If people aren’t encouraging us to do better and to go after something that will positively impact our lives then they’re the ones we don’t need in our circle. We should surround ourselves around people who want to see us achieve.

We need to do something extraordinary. Something that will not only help ourselves but others. We should be brave, strong, and inspired to advance. Sometimes we have to take the leap.

If we continue to shy away from greatness then we will stay in a mess. There’s nothing wrong with wanting better. We should be happy when we’re in a position to elevate. Remove fear and move, move, move towards greatness.

Life is Filled With ups and Downs

There will come a time when we feel a life’s blow. We may through some unbelievable things and wonder how we’ll get through them. It can be rough at times but if we’re filled with hope then we can come out of it like a champ. Have you ever been through somethings and felt as if it was going to eat you alive? Well, we can feel that way at times, especially when we have to deal with so many things at once.

Sometimes we have to find a place where we can gather our thoughts and try to deal with the things that arise the best that we can. No one can or should expect no troubles. We will go through something and when we do. It’s best that we have a support system but if there’s no support system available then we need to pray our way through. Of course prayer and works will help us obtain solutions.  We will be challenged sometimes it’s for a moment and other times it’s for long periods of time.

Although we may experience some pressure and some distress. We can surely overcome any obstacles that heads our way. We won’t face anything that we’re unable to handle but if we allow it to handle us then we can suffer a breakdown. When there’s on problem, there’s two, and three. It’s how we handle the problems that make the difference. Life is filled with all sorts of problems. We’ll have some good days and we’ll have some bad days. What we do with those days really matter.

Sometimes it takes us awhile to learn how to deal with the complexities in life. We may not know exactly how to deal with them at first but with time we’ll be able to handle them better. Sometime we allow our problems to get the best of us. We may try to deal with them and sometimes we’ll need some assistance dealing with our problems. Problems are apart of this world and we will have to learn how to deal with them.

Having That Personal Relationship

If we want to get to know ourselves better then we need to spend quality time with ourselves and enjoy the peace that surrounds us. When one has been through so much in their lives they begin to appreciate the things they may have overlooked before. There’s nothing wrong with being your own friend and besides that. Having a relationship with God and Jesus certainly beats having to deal with false friends.

Anyone who feels that they have to have a million and one friends in order to feel validated is insecure. Some people fear spending time with themselves. Perhaps they can’t stand themselves so that time spent won’t be beneficial until they learn to love themselves. We may see people who appear to be happy but they’re really not because they haven’t accepted who they are.

Loving yourself is the first step to security. Loving who you are and what your make up is. We should learn more about ourselves. We should inspire ourselves and treat ourselves with compassion. We may not be able to control how others view us or treat us but we certainly can do something about how we treat ourselves.

Loving yourself means that you feel thankful for God’s creation. People may not love us the way that we want them to but when we love ourselves it makes a world of difference. If you ever wondered why people are so mean or out to get others, it’s because they don’t love themselves, they’re consumed with self hatred.

When a person hates themselves they will lash out at anyone they come across. They may pretend while there’s people around but when the lights go off. They’re some of the most unhappy people and they are consumed with bitterness. It’s one thing when others come up against us but it’s extra detrimental when we come up against ourselves.

We should love others but we should also love ourselves. Be thankful that you’re flawed and accept that you will make mistakes. Others may not understand who you are but as long as you do that’s what really matters. When we’re unable to accept who we are. We lose sight of the most precious and meaningful things in life. We spend our time wanting to be accepted by others instead of accepting ourselves. I love who I am.How about you?

The Days Offer Improvement

Are we really wasting time? Even if we make a tiny step, that tiny step is improvement, we mad an accomplishment. It’s a wonderful feeling when we decide to make improvements on ourselves. It takes courage to do so and we should take advantage of improving our lives when the days are offered to us. How many people refrain from improving in some way? They may fear not being accepted because they’ve changed in some way.

Whether we improve our skills or improve our minds. Improvements are a way for us to flourish. There’s so many ways to improve. We have 7 days in the week to do so. One of the ways we can improve is to believe that we will get better. Listening to motivational messages will help us and creates better environments. The more that we improve. The better our world will be.

Improvements occur when we surround ourselves with those who encourage people to strive for the best. If we surround ourselves with those who are striving to improve then it’s highly likely that we will want to do the same. Those who disapprove of our changes will only bring us down and we should continue on the path of improvement. There’s choices in that matter. One can either limit their time with people who tea us down or one can completely eliminate them from their lives.

Positive thoughts will inspire us to be better people. Helping others is apart of improvement. Removing toxic people out of our lives is a great way to help us live better lives. Toxicity can cause us to experience a decline. Improving ourselves will help us help others “improve.” A little movement is better than none at all and if we’re making some progress then we should be thankful for that.

Society could use more “growth.” If we all make even the smallest changes then we will see our society improve. It won’t be perfect but it will be better and better is a whole lot of improvement. Everyone can benefit from working on themselves. Working on ourselves will encourage others to do the same. When they notice positive changes within us then they will be willing to place those positive changes with themselves.

Don’t be Your own Critic

If no one in the world encourages you, do it yourself, if we “uplift ourselves” then we’ll become more productive. We seem do better when we feel better about ourselves. There’s enough critics in the world and we don’t  need to be our own critics. A little criticism from the outside world will occur and sometimes it’s needed but too much of it can cause a breakdown.. That’s why it’s so important that we encourage ourselves. When we start to feel low we should tell ourselves some very positive things. Stick with positive thoughts. If someone says something that makes you feel bad then tell yourself something that makes you feel better.

The world can be a cruel place and if we allow the cruelness of the world to seep into our minds then we will suffer greatly. We should read positive material and listen to positive communications. Of course we’ll be exposed to some negativity but it shouldn’t be apart of our everyday lives. If we have negative friends then we need to “build” positive friendships. Negativity can cause our health to decline. There’s enough problems to deal with we don’t need all of that unnecessary stress.

We’re exposed to negativity when we watch the news and other television programming. That can enter into our thoughts and affect us. It’s so essential that we expose ourselves to “good things.” I love listening to inspirational music and that helps remove that negativity from my mind. Sometimes we have to learn that we deserve better. If we’re not good to ourselves then how can we expect others to do the same?

We’re teachers and learners and we have a choice whether we want to learn how to be kind to ourselves. “Kindness” is something that this world could use more of. Believe that you deserve the goodness that’s promised to us. If you’re tormenting yourself then it’s time that you stop! Don’t do it. Start today. Tell yourself that you’re special, deserve to be loved, you’re filled with goodness. “Spread Some Love.”

Transformation is a Complete Change

When we set out to “transform” into a better person, we see things differently, and we become excited about the growth. It’s not easy when going through the process. There will be some pain and there will be disappointments but that’s apart of life. Change is something that we all have to deal with. When people notice a positive change in us then they will probably be more inclined to change themselves. Transformation doesn’t happen overnight but if we work hard. The transformation will occur.

Some may not want to accept change but whether they want to accept it or not. Change will occur and it’s something that everyone experiences. A complete transformation can take longer or it can happen rapidly but if one really wants to transform. Then they have to be willing to accept the hurdles that come along with it. The best transformation includes getting close to God. Making room for a heavenly home when it’s time.

There’s so many reasons why we should try to get better. Every rising day allows us to make improvements and when we feel comfortable with where we are. We can relax and enjoy the “new me.” Making changes within ourselves allow us to make a positive difference in this world and boy this world can use some more positivity. Don’t allow anyone to make you feel bad about becoming a better person. “Transformation includes transforming the mind.”

Not everyone we want to see us grow so we have to be prepared when attacks from those who refuse to understand our growth comes along. Remember, not everyone wants to see change, they may not want to hear others talk about change. Change is inevitable so when it comes we simply have to embrace it. It will come if not today then tomorrow. We won’t have to tell others how much we’ve changed. They will notice the glow around us. Positive changes generates a “smile.” Have a prosperous New Year. Much Love!
