This statement probably sounds silly on the surface, but there is actually a lot more to this when you break it down. Some of us are content to be “exactly where we are.” We don’t feel the urge to learn more, experience more or take on more in our lives. However, that thought only limits us from our true capabilities and stops us from achieving our own potentials. You have talents that you could put to use, but you may not want to engage in the effort to maximize your abilities. That means that you are “what you think” you are. Great people are only normal people who had the resolve to try and accomplish great things. Some people are so afraid of failure that they resist the effort to gain more. You might have great singing ability. You might be a great speaker. You might have an incredible sense or politics. Do you feel as though you are “maximizing” your life right now? The mind is very powerful. Often we don’t know what we are truly capable of. As long as you breathe and live you still have the opportunity to grow and learn. It doesn’t have to stop once you reach a certain age. If you feel your have more gifts to bestow upon the world, then what is stopping you from exhibiting those gifts? The answer: “You.” In order to better yourself you first need to build your “confidence.” Your confidence is your believe in yourself. Lack of true confidence has resulted in many failures. If you don’t first believe in yourself then how can you expect others to believe in you? I am not referring to being cocky or arrogant. Believing in yourself starts from within. Do you know who and what you are today? Today is the very first day of the rest of your life. Just imagine that you got old, died, went to Heaven and then looked at a video of your life. Do you think you will see things that you “wished” you had done? Of course, you will. Why wait until you die and go to Heaven? Do it now, and alleviate the doubt. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought, and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
