A message for all the people who are not where they want to be: You are not where you are supposed to be because of you. You are not where you are supposed to be financially because of you. You are not where you are supposed to be with your health because of you. Your relationship isn't how it should be because of you. Your career is not where it should be because of you. Your life is not where it should be because of you. It is all because of you. You are human. Bad thoughts, feelings and actions are not helpful but you're human. The important thing is not to allow the irrational thoughts that last 1 minute, 5 minutes or 10 minutes of irrational thinking & feeling spiral into a negative, debilitating mindset. These things simply are not healthy so do not allow them to digest into your mind and being. They do not live in you or belong there. Replace them with the opposite. As powerful and complex as the brain is, although the subconscious can have numerous thoughts at a given moment, the conscious brain can only process one thought in the moment. Choose that thought to help you not hinder you. You decide. You can make a decision to not allow negative, irrational thoughts fester in your mind. They serve no purpose, show discipline, replace them with thoughts that serve you. Ask yourself a question... How often do you hear your voice compared to often you hear external voices/ noise. Stop allowing the voice of others override your voice. Don't drown your voice to hear the voice of others. It's your voice, it's your thoughts, their your dreams, their your goals, it's your life. Take control. What would your life look like if you only listened to your voice? After all, how was listening to the voice of others worked out for you? The problem is people are more concerned about what other people think of them and how others perceive them rather than focusing on loving themselves.
