Emmet Fox said, “You must not under any pretence allow your mind to dwell on any thought that is not positive, constructive, optimistic, kind.” It is hard to do, but you have the power to focus your mind on positive thoughts. It is better than negative thoughts. No matter what is going on in your life, it is going to go away. You can’t stop things from happening. But you can control your own thoughts. You can control what you think about. Remember, you are what you think about. So if you want things to change, you must focus on positive thoughts.
Don’t forget that every thought you think is designing your life, is creating your future. You can create a better future if you focus on positive thoughts, if you focus on what you want for yourself, if you stay creative, if you do not do anything that is against you values, if you respect yourself, and if you do not let anything negative stop you from chasing your dream.
Ask yourself, Is there anything to be gained by thinking negative thoughts? Do not dwell on them. Focus on love. As Emmet Fox put it, “If you could love enough, you could be the most powerful person in the world.” Because love is powerful. Love is life. To drive negative thoughts away from your life, you must commit yourself to your life.
Anthony Trollope once said, “Never think that you’re not good enough yourself. A man should never think that. People will take you very much at your own reckoning.” You should never think that. Because you are a special human being.
“The purpose of living is growth.”
God didn’t create you by mistake. God created you for a purpose. You are here for a reason that is bigger than you. And that reason should be your mission. Do not make yourself smaller than you really are. People will treat you the way you want to be treated.
“Never think that you’re not good enough yourself.”- Anthony Trollope
You are good enough. You are smart enough. You are tall enough. You are rich enough. You are beautiful enough. You are you. You are here to follow your dreams. You are here to achieve your dreams. You are not here to compete with anybody. You are here to compete with yourself.
Whether you are rich or poor, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you are tall or short, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you are smart or not, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you have a degree or not, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you have a job or not, you are good enough for yourself. Because you are good enough for yourself. You are not doing people’s things. You are doing your own thing.
“You are here to live your life, not to prove yourself to anybody.”
As Maya Angelou once said, “You alone are enough.You have nothing to prove to anybody.” Yes, “you have nothing to prove to anybody.” You are here to live your life, not to prove yourself to anybody. Even though you want to prove yourself to someone, prove yourself to yourself. That is it!
