To Achieve Greatness, You Must Face Yourself

“We always may be what we might have been.”- Adelaide Anne Procter

Life is full of problems. Life is also full of solutions. Focus on what you want. So if you want love, you must focus on love. If you want happiness, you must focus on what will make you happy. Don’t do the opposite.

There is nothing you cannot do if you just focus on what will get you closer to your dream. You can change your life if you can change how you see yourself. You can make your dream happen if you don’t stop yourself. You are created for greatness. You are created to change people’s lives. That is not going to happen if you cannot face the unknown- your future.

Don’t let anyone tell you what you cannot do. You can do anything. You can beat your fears. You can achieve your dreams. You can live your life. Nothing can stop you from moving forward. Nothing can stop you from living your life. Nothing can make you unhappy. Nothing can pull you down. The only person who can stop you from moving forward is you. Until you love yourself, until you love your life, you will never achieve your goals.

Just Let Go

“To let go of judgement does not mean that you don’t see what they do. It means that you recognize their behavior as a form of conditioning, and you see it and accept it as that. You don’t construct an identity out of it for that person.”- Eckhart Tolle, philosopher

No matter what anyone has done to you, it is not about you. It is about the person. Don’t focus on it. The best way to let go of what people have done to you is to surrender to life. Why is that? Because you can’t control other people, but you can control yourself.

Live your life. Keep going forward. You are here to live your life, not to think about what other people have done to you. You are here to celebrate what the Lord has done for you, not to dwell on what someone has done to you. Remember, you are bigger, stronger than what someone has done to you. If you want love to come into your life, you must let go of hate. If you want happiness to dominate your life, you must let go of negative thoughts. If you want to move your life forward, you must let go of your old self. Try it and see what happens.
