Problems

Life Problems: No Obstacle is Too Great

We all have problems.

Life is full of problems, but it’s how we handle those problems that determine the course of our lives.

Through my studies I have come to realize that the thoughts we think most are who we are, but not who we can be.

Now to some that may not seem like rocket science, but it’s much deeper than what it sounds like on the surface.

I have had many a conversation with friends that don’t believe in the power of thought and feel like the world on the outside determines what goes on in the inside.

They live their lives being reactive instead of proactive.

Responding to situations that happen to them instead of creating the situations they desire for themselves.

I admit to having the same issue, but I now realize that I have the power to change that.

Divine powers have been given to us to create our own realities.

The thoughts that we think all day create the outer world we live in. If you think about nothing all day, nothing changes.

If you do nothing all day, nothing changes.

The problem is when one has this state of mind…

How do you correct it?

When one has been accustomed to thinking or living a certain way it becomes habit.

Often our habits are difficult to change.

Often times we don’t realize our habits are habits because it has become who we “think” we are.

The ability to change by far has to be one of the greatest abilities that have been given to us as human beings.

No other life form on earth has the ability to become anything other than what it is instinctually.

We have been given the power to create, reason, rationalize, adapt, and change.

All this time I have taken all those things for granted.

Why?

I really don’t know.

It could be laziness or lack of knowledge.

I once heard that we take our mind for granted because it was given to us for free.

We didn’t have to work for it, and we didn’t have to earn it.

It was given to us so we do not see the importance in the power of the mind.

Some people have been so programmed with fear of failure and criticism that they cannot think big enough to dream big.

The self-doubt and content begins to be our reality because it is safe and comfortable.

I admit I had some problems recently, or so I thought…

But what I have realized is how much your own mind can trick you into thinking things are worse than they really are.

Don’t focus on your problems because that won’t change a thing.

Focus your energy on solutions and I guarantee your problems will soon fade away.

Action

Your Actions Lead to Results

I had a discussion with a friend about the importance of taking action.

I explained that taking action is the most important thing a person can do when it comes to success and growth.

You can have all the knowledge in the world, but if you don’t apply that knowledge then it is useless in the achievement of anything.

One of the biggest differences between the successful and unsuccessful often times is action.

How many times have you heard someone express that they have all these brilliant ideas, but never put those ideas into effect? I’ll wait…

Exactly! I’m sure hundreds if not thousands of time.

Many people have dreams, which is marvelous but a dream is just that until one takes the initiative to turn that dream into reality.

You can have faith, belief, and goals but without any action there is no possibility of results.

We have all been placed here for a reason and quite often people never take the time to figure out their true meaning, their purpose in life.

Sometimes it’s because they don’t believe they can, don’t know how, or are afraid of what might happen.

Many people are comfortable where they are. Not having the courage to live up to their fullest potential.

There are many people that go through life wishing and hoping they had more, but are afraid to step outside of the box to go get what they deserve because they are afraid of change.

They continue to do the same things…living their lives in a rut.

Why is action so important?

I believe action has the ability to build character. Action is always positive because it changes your psyche.

Action has the ability to open up your mind to things you never knew were possible for yourself.

You begin to realize that things you were afraid of or felt like you could not do aren’t as bad as you thought.

Or maybe you realize they are as bad as you thought, but you no longer have the doubt, thus expanding yourself to do other things.

I can remember back when I didn’t know how to swim.

I would always be on the shallow end while my friends were having fun in the deep end.

A friend recommended that I come over to the deep end so I could be a part of the group activities.

I decided to give it a shot.

Having imagined myself swimming and having enough confidence in myself to at least know how to “doggy paddle” I jumped into the deep end and literally began swimming.

I would have never known I could swim if I would have never took action.

After that I learned how to breast stroke, free style, butterfly, and back stroke.

My actions lead to the ability to become an efficient swimmer through practice and a positive mind.

You see action has the awesome ability of removing fear and opening up your mind to a world of endless possibility.

When you take action you gain experience and experience can lead to expertise.

So be brave, but not stupid.

Face that fear and take action now!
