How You Can Get Out Of Your Own Trap

“You don’t see your prison because its bars are invisible.”- Dan Millman

To know what is possible, you must first know who you are. If you do not know who you are, what you want, and where you are going, you can’t help yourself. You can’t get yourself out of your own trap. Look, whatever you want, you can get it. But you must do the dirty work. You must first get out of your own prison.

Prison? According to Dan Millman, “You don’t see your prison because its bars are invisible.” A lot of people are in prison. Some know why they are there. Others don’t care to know why they are there. Look, if you don’t care about your own life, who do you think is going to care? Who?

“Only when I know who I am will I know what is possible.”- Ram Dass

As I said before, if you want to create a better life for yourself, you can do it. To start, you must know what you want, who you are, and where you are going. Ram Dass once said, “Only when I know who I am will I know what is possible.” If you do not know who you are, how are you going to know what is possible?

Knowing who you are is the first step to getting what you want. If you know what you want, you can get what you want. If you don’t know what you want, you can’t get what you want.

To get what you want, if it is not out there, then create your own opportunity. Shakti Gawain said, “You create your own opportunities by asking for them.” That is right. Why? Because everything is out there. Opportunities are out there. And they belong to those who know what they want. If you know what you want, you can get them.

The door is open. If you want to know yourself, what you want in your life, then you must first be honest with yourself. Why is that? Because “fredom is for honest people.”

L. Ron Hubbard once said, “Freedom is for honest people. No man who is not himself honest can be free- he is in his own trap.” If you are honest with yourself, you are free to live your life on your own terms. But if you are not honest with yourself, you are in your own self-designed prison. You are in your own trap. To get out, do not lie to yourself.

Do This One Thing That Counts Every Day

Are you enjoying what you have? Are you listening to the voice of your heart? If you are not, why are you not doing it? Are you scared? If you are scared, why?

“The purpose of life is living. Men and women should get the most they can out of their lives.”- Clarence Darrow

If you want to be successful, you must listen to your own heart. You must follow your heart. Do not go with the crowd. Yes, new things are scary. If you can do them, you will grow.

Wilheim Reich said, “Follow the voice of your heart, even if it leads off the path of timid souls. Do not become hard and embittered, even if life tortures you at times. There is only one thing that counts: to live one’s life well and happily…” It is never too late to live your life on your own terms.

“It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.”- Charles Spurgeon

Even if life is not giving you what you want, do what Friedrich Schiller said. He said, “Keep true to the dreams of thy youth.” This is why you shouldn’t follow the crowd. There is nothing there. If you follow the crowd, you are not going to be happy with yourself.

Whether you know what is going to happen or not, whether it will work or not, it is better to follow your heart, your dreams, your passion. Listen to what your soul is telling you. Do not ignore your soul. Your soul is your partner. If you want to succeed in life, listen to your trusted partner- your soul.

And to satisfy your soul, you must not follow the crowd. You must follow your own path. You must dream your own dreams. Remember, everything starts with a dream. If you want to make your soul happy, you must dream your own dreams. Henry J. Kaiser said, “I always have to dream up against the stars. If I don’t dream I will make it, I won’t even get close.” He knows that everything starts with a dream.

Remember, it is not enough to have a dream. If you want your dream to come true, you must have a plan. And you must be willing and ready to put your plan to work. Are you willing to put your plan to work?
