The end of something is the beginning of another thing. Whatever you may have lost in the past, let it go. You are living in the present, not in the past. If you want God to help you get it back, you must focus your mind on a positive future. You must stop dwelling on your past errors. You must stop focusing on negative things. You must stop expecting negative things to happen to you. You must stop hanging out with negative people.
Remember that the end of a terrible relationship is the beginning of a positive relationship. Remember also that the end of working for a bad boss is the beginning of working for a better boss. The end of your old life is the beginning of your new life. God wants you to focus your mind on better things, not on small things. Remember, God doesn’t create you to live in fear. God created you to live in love. Because God is love. Oswald Chambers said, “It is true that we have lost opportunities which will never return, but God can transform this destructive anxiety into a constructive thoughtfulness for the future.” He also said, “Every exit is an entry somewhere else.” If you want positive things to come to you, you must let go of what is holding you back. You must let go of negative thoughts.
According to Brian Tracy, “You have within you the potential to accomplish wonderful things with your life. Your greatest responsibilities are to dream big dreams, decide exactly what you want, make a plan to achieve it… take action every single day in the direction of your dreams and goals, and resolve to never, never, never give up. When you take these actions, you put yourself on the side of the angels. You become unstoppable and your success becomes inevitable.”
It is your life. You are responsible for making it better than it was yesterday. To do that, you must decide exactly what you want to do with your life. Remember, your dreams are not going to come true just by thinking positively about them. You must take action. You must get out of your comfort zone. You must have the courage to do what you haven’t done before. Positive thinking is good, but not enough to make your dreams come true.
If you want your dreams, your goals to come true, you must do something about them. You must put your dreams in front of you every day. When you do nothing about your dreams, you are actually doing something about them. You are ignoring them. You are closing the door to your success. You are closing the door to your future life. You can change that by doing a little more than you have always done in the past. Your ability to do a little more can change your life. Nothing happens without taking action.
Do not let what happened to you in the past to determine your present life. To do that, you must learn how to guide your mind against negative thoughts. In the words of Nigel Cumberland, “Not allowing what happened in the past to determine your future starts in your mind.” If you want to get to where you want to be, you must do everything within your power to protect your mind from invaders.
If want to achieve your dreams, don’t be afraid to follow your own path. Dan Rockwell writes, “Adopt practices that express who you are to become who you aspire to be.” That is the fastest way to get to where you want to be. The question is: Are you ready to walk alone?
