Most of the time….life is better lived being spontaneous.
How is it possible to wiggle your fingers or your toes? How is it possible for me to type what I am typing at the moment? How is it possible for me to make any kind of physical movement I want with my body and its extremities? The mind. When you want to move your arm or wiggle your fingers, your mind is sending a message to set off the movement. The mind is strongest aspect of an individual. It can make you achieve things beyond your imagination, or it can kill you.
What is fear? Fear is just a thought of an outcome that could possibly happen in the future. I fear snakes because I am afraid of what could possibly happen if one bites me. Do I know for a fact it will bite me or that I could possibly get poisoned? No, but that is the outcome I am thinking about and that is what puts fear in me.
If you learn to get past fear or doubt that is in your mind, then you will be able to do things that you never imagined. If you see yourself conquering, you will conquer. If you see yourself being successful, you will be successful. People who have visualizations are the ones who have the most ambition. With ambition comes hard work and dedication. With hard work, comes opportunities because a lot of times opportunities are created by the work and sacrifices you put in and are not just handed to you. With opportunities come success.
It is VITAL to understand how a positive mind can impact ones life. What you think, believe, and envision will either make or break you. When I am at the gym or when I am at work, deep in my mind there is always some sort of fear. Fear that I may not be able to lift the weight that is in front of me or that I may injure myself. Fear at work that I may mess up on a project and cost the company money. But you know what I say to myself? Fuck it. I know my capabilities. I push past that fear and conquer what is in front of me. If for some reason I fail and I can’t lift as much weight as I thought or I make a mistake at work, or I injure myself some how, I will learn from it and come back smarter and stronger next time.
Today and everyday is YOUR day. Don’t let anything or anyone try to stop you, not even yourself.
To me, there is no such thing as perfection. It is more of a motivator, trying to be the best you possibly can each and every day. Nothing in this world is perfect, including people. If you are one of those people that consider yourself to be “perfect,” you are not and you need to shut the hell up. Everybody has flaws and that is what make us all unique in our own ways. Embrace those flaws. Be who you really are and if people can’t accept you for you, then they can screw themselves. I have many flaws myself. For one, I am short. I am 5’5. People tend to underestimate me because of that and I love to prove them wrong and use their judgments as fuel for my success. I have a habit of getting attached to people because I care a lot about people in general. Because of that, it has put me in painful situations, which has also made me a stronger person. I make mistakes everyday which I learn from and use it to excel in what I am doing. I get paranoid about certain things, like money, but if I wasn’t then I would not be as financially stable as I am today. My list can go on and on but the important factor is that I do not let people try to change me. I have been down that road before, and It is not one I want to go down again.
