“He who has overcome his fears will truly be free.”- Aristotle

Fear is part of life. To live your life, to do what you are afraid to, to get out of your comfort zone, you must take action. To do what you want to do with yourself, you must use love to conquer fear. Only love can conquer fear. Use love to remove fear from your life. There is nothing that love cannot create. With love in your heart, you can do anything. Before you start anything, my friends, think love. Think love thoughts. Remove fear thoughts from your mind. When you think fear thoughts, you attract more fear thoughts into your life. When you think love thoughts, you attract love into your life. When you fear something, do not run away from it. Try to understand it. When you understand it, you won’t fear it. We fear what we don’t understand. We don’t fear what we know. That is why so many people hate change. Because change is vulnerable. It brings chaos. It destroys routine. It takes people out of their comfort zones. But you can live your life with love. Live love. Breathe love. Carry love in your heart. Don’t fear what you don’t know. Instead, learn more about it. There is power in learning. Always learn something new. Learning cures fear. Whatever you want in your life, you can get. Do not let fear be the obstacle to your success. Remove it with action. Action cures fear. Action builds confidence. Action brings freedom. Remember, only love can set you free. So if you want to free, carry love in your heart. With love, with action, you can overcome your fears. With love, with compassion, you can overcome your fears.

Difficulties Are God’s Errands

“Victory belongs to the most persevering.”- Napoleon 1 of France

There is strength in overcoming obstacles. We grow when we overcome obstacles. We do great things when we overcome obstacles. Whether we like it or not, if we want to grow , we must face our obstacles. We must defeat them. If not, we can’t move forward. According to Henry Ward Beecher, “Difficulties are God’s errands; and when we are sent upon them, we should esteem it a proof of God’s confidence,- as a compliment from God.”

“I attempt a difficult work; but there is no excellence without difficulty.”- Ovid

We don’t see problems as gifts. We see them as problems. Remember, when you focus on problems, you create more problems for yourself.

To change that, instead of focusing on your problems, why not focus on what you can do about your problems? To put it simply, why not focus on solutions? When you are faced with a difficult issue, do not run from it. Look at it, analyze it, and get to work. Do not think of a problem as a problem, but as an opportunity to grow. When you see something as a problem, it becomes a real problem. As Helen Keller once said, “You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere, and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles.” Yes, there is power in overcoming obstacles. What do you think?

“Do not think of a problem as a problem, but as an opportunity to grow.”
