Rise Above Your Limitations

Many of us have been trained from infancy to think small thoughts. Our minds have been saturated with the thoughts of poverty, lack, scarcity, limitations etc. And if you are from, or live in my part of the world, then you hear talks of poverty and limitation from morning till night, you see poverty-stricken conditions everywhere. Everybody around is talking limitation, scarcity, lack, diseases, failure. Little wonder there is so much lack and want around.

Folks, let’s break this bond. Do not repeat the poverty and limiting conditions of your parents, families, and environments. It starts with the belief, with developing a positive mental attitude. No matter how black the outlook or how rusty your environment is, positively refuse to see anything that is unfavourable to you. Refuse to see the obstacles. Refuse to see any condition which wants to enslave you, and keep you from rising above your environment, and keep you from living your greatest life!

Remember, “The man who is bound to win, believes he is going to be prosperous; he starts with the understanding with himself that he is going to be a successful man. A winner and not a loser.”

Have faith. The Bible says; “…Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘move from here to there’, and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” – Matthew 17:20

8 Ways To Stay Happy, No Matter What.

When “The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy…”your peace, happiness, dreams, goals, relationships, success etc, fight back by affirming and deciding that; No matter what challenges, setbacks, opposition, misfortune, delays, betrayals, negativity, rejection I face TODAY:

1. I will be as cheerful as possible.

2. I will try to feel and act a little more friendly toward other people.

3. I am going to be a little less critical and a little more tolerant of other people, their faults, failings and mistakes. I will place the best possible interpretation upon their actions.

4. As much as possible, I am going to act as if success were inevitable, and I already am the sort of personality I want to be. I will practice “acting like” and “feeling like” this new personality.

5. I will not let my own opinion colour facts in a pessimistic or negative way.

6. I will practice smiling regularly.

7. Regardless of what happens, I will react as calmly and as intelligently as possible.

8. I will ignore completely and close my mind to all those pessimistic and negative events which I can do nothing to change.

Each of these simple but powerful habitual ways of acting, feeling, thinking can benefit you and lead you to a life of greatness. Act them out. “Experience” them, and see worry, guilt, hostility diminish and your confidence increase.
