Have you ever had one of those days when the smallest irritation would blow you off the handle? I sure have, and it was more than just one occasion. This time was different, I asked myself what was bothering me?
It wasn’t really the circumstances I found myself in, it was my self doubt. I was beginning to feel helpless. I was growing anxious and feared that I might be running out of time before I could do what I truly desired in my life.
The circumstances I was facing served as the catalyst to place my emotions off balance. There was a change that was desired to happen in my life right but I didn’t know if I could handle it. I had never done this before. What if I were to fail? What if I looked like a fool? What if I wasted my invested time and money? What if I fell and couldn’t back up again?
Think Of The Possibilities
Well after pondering all the worst that could happen, I shifted my mindset and focused on the greater possibilities. What if I become a great success? What if my self doubt transforms into self confidence? What if this becomes the greatest decision I would ever make? What if I can make a larger impact on the world and those around me? What if I become what I’ve always dreamed? Now that’s the stuff I liked to ponder.
For every doubt you have, replace it with faith. Pour your energy into the possibility of achieving the greatest outcome. Form a mental habit that sees the opportunity in every situation. Develop an attitude that grows excited of the possibilities.
What motivates you more, fear or victory? Fear may push one out of desperation but it may never reach the threshold of your greatest potential. Having a positive attitude with new habits in place, begins setting yourself up for continuous success.
When you finally get through this mental setback and decide to pursue your dream anyway, you will honestly say, “I did do it! Oh how great it is to make my dream come true!”
Sending faithful positive vibes your way,
