When people undermine your dreams, predict your doom, or criticize you, remember they’re telling you their story, not yours.

How true are these words just spoken. Most people’s opinions are either based on their own experiences or those of others that don’t really matter to you.

Others often believe that you will fail because they have already failed. Others might criticize you because they are afraid to do what you are doing. Others won’t follow their dreams like you will or have.

Do not let the opinions of others stop you from doing what you love to do. You can do whatever it is that you set out to do. All you have to do is remember why you are doing it. Most likely the first reason is you are doing it for yourself and no one else. Others reasons can be that you are doing for others or that it is just the right thing to do. Whatever the reasons are they are your reasons and the opinions and predictions of others don’t matter.

Go out and do it!

Why assume that everything is going to go wrong? What makes you think this way? Where does all the negativity coming from?

Why not assume everything is going to turn out right? Why wouldn’t you want to believe everything is turn out for the good? Where can you draw from positivity?

How we think is very powerful. The power of the mind is unlimited. Use the power of your mind with positive intentions. You will attract greater positivity.

See yourself succeeding and achieving at whatever you want to accomplish. WHat do the images look like? How does it make you feel? Why is it important for you to succeed? Ask yourself these important questions. Make it clear to you that you will succeed and that there is no real fear.

Tell yourself you can do it. You will do it!

images-4You are confined ONLY by the walls you build yourself.

Let me repeat that again. You are confined ONLY by the walls you build yourself. 

There is so many people out there that believe they are trapped in situations and they cannot get out. And they truly believe it was not their fault. Well every situation you get yourself into to some degree is your fault. Yes there is some cases where it is not but most things that happen in our lives happen because of what we do.

If you are in a bad situations, you may have done something to get yourself there but no worries. You have the power to get yourself out of anything you get yourself into. You just have to think clearly and do something differently until you care no longer in that situation.

Okay now being confined is not just a negative thing here. Believing you are confined could mean that you are stuck in a rut or perhaps you want to create a better lifestyle for yourself but you don’t know how. Or maybe you have a great idea for a business but you don’t think you can do it. It all comes down to the fact of how you think. How do you think about yourself and your strengths and weaknesses? How’s your self confidence? How bad do you want something? Are you motivated and passionate?

See you are only confined by the walls of your imagination. If you truly no longer want to be confined you will find a way. Change your thinking, change your habits, learn new things. Do whatever it takes. It’s up to you to break down these imaginary walls that confine you. The only thing that is stopping you is you!!
