Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “There is no knowledge that is not power.”
Take responsibility for your life. Free yourself from your past disappointments. They are in the past. If you want them to remain in the past, you must free yourself from them. Do not let your past define your life. Do not let your past determine how far you can go in your life. Do not limit yourself. Because God has a lot in store for you. It is up to you.
You can change your life. Do not wait for anyone to do it for you. They are not going to do it for you. Because they have their own problems to deal with. Do not wait. Just do your own thing. You have the power to do anything you set out to do in your life. Do not wait for people to do for you what you can do for yourself. If you do, they will never respect you.
Respect yourself by taking responsibility for your life. You have the power to do it. You have the power to say no to what is hurting you. You have the power to say yes to your life, to love, to happiness, to life. Above all, you have the power to say no to your past. And you have the power to create a new life, to wear new clothes, to make new friends, to follow a different path. To do that, you must trust yourself. You must believe in yourself. You must not let your past failures to control your present life. Whenever you catch yourself doubting yourself, you must replace it with a positive thought- a life expanding thought.
