Surpassing you own expectations….

We all have dreams we want accomplish.  This can only be done in one way……   stepping outside your comfort zone.  But even with that, there are smaller sub “zones” you must go through as well.  The most important one  “Failure”.  Yes, failure is a key component to success and you can research this for yourself.  So I’m going to skip the novel and get right to the climax and ending of this book.  

You can have all the best ideas in the word but if you do not have the emotion drive behind it to push forward your dreams and goals, they will not happen.  Drive to finish something you started says a lot about you.  Without drive it would be a pretty boring world, filled with re-runs of Hee Haw and Love Boat.  

Self-talk is another huge, if not the top element.  It’s how we speak to ourselves in our minds.  “I’m not good enough.”  “Why even bother?”  “No one will like it.”   “I hate……   ”    The words we speak about ourselves are either incredibly uplifting, or severally damaging.  The interesting part is that we are in complete control of it….  just like we are of other habits like eating, smoking, drinking, and lifestyle choices.  I’ve said this is previous blogs but I want to repeat it….  “We become our surroundings.”   Make sure you read that and write it down.  Consider it a life rule if you will.  If you hang out with party people…. you become that.  Hang out with people who gossip… you become that.    Are you getting this yet ?

Another HUGE component,  emotion baggage.  One of the most difficult things to drop off at the door, is our feelings of hurt from the past.  If you were in a relationship where you were emotionally hurt, cheated on, etc…  your mind puts “relationships”  in a category of “Relationships = pain”.   Make sense?  So when you keep your mind on that equation…. you will actually find more of what you don’t want… more pain.  Instead you have to re-train how you think.  Maybe the reason the other person that hurt you in the relationship was hurt themselves and brought their baggage to you.  So can you see how it’s almost like a virus ?  It spreads like an emotional flu.  The cure??  Realize that you are always going to go through difficult times, but you will always come out to see the light.  You just have to have faith. !   God did’t bring you this far just to let you fall.

Keeping Life In-Focus…
