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?

Fear is real. If you want to build success, you must first conquer fear. The one thing that stops people from doing what they love is fear. You can conquer it. Don’t be afraid to live your life. With or without fear, you must cultivate the courage to move forward.

If you really want to put fear behind you, here is how:

Do not fear what you don’t know. It is okay to fear what you don’t know, but don’t ignore it. Explore it.

Do not fear mistakes. If you really want to change your life, if you want to succeed in your life, don’t be scared of mistakes.

Take action. Eleanor Roosevelt said, “Do one thing every day that scares you.”

Know who you are. If you don’t know who you are, how can you manage your fears? You are the only person who can do that for yourself. Don’t stand in your own way. To conquer your fears, you must face them.

Do not encourage fear. James Allen said, “Doubt and fear are the great enemies of knowledge, and he who encourage them, who does not slay them, thwarts himself at every step.” Instead of fear thoughts, try to always occupy your mind with positive, love thoughts. Only love can conquer fear. Love, not fear.

Use love to conquer your fear. In the words of Dorothy Day, “Love casts out fear, but we have to get over the fear in order to get close enough to love them.”
