You can conquer yourself. You can change your life. You have what it takes to make things happen. Don’t let anything stop you from changing your life. Focus on love, not hate. Focus on what you can do, not what you cannot do. With love, you can conquer yourself. With love, you can change your life.

Whatever you are going through today, they will disappear. All you need to do is to focus on light, not darkness. James Allen said, “Whatever conditions are rendering your life burdensome, you may pass out of and beyond them by developing and utilizing within you the transforming power of self-purification and self-conquest. Before the divine radiance of a pure heart all darkness vanishes and all clouds melt away, and he who has conquered self has conquered the universe.”

Purify yourself. Self-purification is not easy, but you can do it. Change is good, but it doesn’t happen overnight. No matter what you are going through, you can change it by purifying yourself, by staying away from negative things, by doing the right things, by loving yourself. Do not settle for less. You have the power to transform yourself. Why not do it?
