It’s All in Your Mind



“Whatever you hold in your mind will tend to occur in your life.  If you continue to believe as you have always believed, you will continue to act as you have always acted.  If you continue to act as you have always acted, you will continue to get what you have always gotten.  If you want different results in your life or your work, all you have to do is change your mind.”




It’s Your Race, Your Pace


When you look to your left and then to your right, you may perceive the people around you as going much faster than you.  They might be getting jobs, graduating, getting married, traveling, having babies, or whatever else.  You might feel a little left behind, maybe even lost, but what you need to remember is that as long as you’re working on yourself and preparing for your own journey then you have nothing to worry about.  Worry about what you’re doing now and make sure it will benefit your success.  Sooner or later, you will be doing everything that the people around you are doing and more.  Trust me, everybody goes at their own pace and everyone has their own degree of success at their own time.  Don’t measure your accomplishments with that of those around you because you have to remind yourself that you do know what you’re doing as long you know what your end goal is.  Just make sure that everything you do today will help make tomorrow better and will bring you closer to what you want out of life.  Don’t let what others are doing distract you from what you need to do because the more you mope about how so and so is doing this and you’re not is the more you’re keeping yourself from focusing on yourself.  Nobody is running faster than you.  They’re just running a different race.

When In Doubt, Listen to Your Self


People will never be one hundred percent sure of anything because, no matter what, there will always be an amount of uncertainty in their mind.  There will always be some doubt, so people will always be unsure.  Even if the truth is the truth and you know that it is, it will always be possible to change someone’s mind.  Persuasion is the pervasive nuisance that will always be lingering around the corner.  With that being said, sometimes logistics and rationale need to be forgotten.  Your instincts and gut feeling need to be given a chance and they’re the ones who need the opportunity to guide you.  When you reach that crossroad in your life where you have no idea which path you should take, just follow your heart.  Listen to what your soul really wants because, at this point, there’s no way that overthinking anything is going to help you.  Identify what feels right to you and let those instincts lead the way for you.  Sometimes analyzing the evidence won’t do anything but confuse you.  Sometimes hanging on to the little truth that you have can keep you from seeing the whole truth, but you’ll never know unless you let go of the analytics and focus on your soul.  It’ll tell you what’s best for you and, when it does, you better listen carefully.

Take Your Time



Patience is a virtue.

By rushing you,

I’m only thinking of myself.

My selfish ways

will get the best of me

and I’ll only ruin

what you’re becoming.

How rude of me!

How wrong of me

to be so demanding!

Perfection takes time.

It takes practice.

I shouldn’t bite the fruit

before it’s ripe.

I shouldn’t pout,

if you’re not ready.

It’s best to wait

till the time is right.


I am flawed.

I know it,

so I should make use of my time.

I should create my best version.

I should prepare for your arrival.

I’ll work on it,

I promise,

as you are doing with yourself.

I’ll be kind and understanding.

I’ll love and try to be wise,

but, most of all,

I’ll do my best to be patient.


Your Self


No matter what you may think, your outer self is a projection of who you are on the inside. It is how you choose to represent yourself to others and, if it is at least a small part of who you are, then it is a part of your self. You can be friendly, warm, and loving on the inside. Deep down you can be the sweetest, most generous kinds of people, but, if what you project is a stoic self who doesn’t laugh, give, or allow anybody to get closer to you, then you can’t be that positive person. There comes a point where who you are on the inside is so strong that you can’t hide it. Who you are on the inside is who you are on the outside. If you are truly optimistic, happy, and good, then it will show. People will be able to see it in the way you dress, the way you walk, the way you talk, and the way you react to the world around you. If you are sad, lonely, and defeated, then that fake smile will eventually crack and people will begin to notice your head hanging low, your short responses, and your preference for solitude. It is who you are, no matter whether or not you want to face it, but you have to realize that you can change.

If you’re not happy as the person you are now, then you can work on yourself until you are content with yourself. Until you have learned to love who you are and have started to see the beauty you have. Soon enough that positive light will spread into other parts of yourself until it is impossible to deny. Never try to hide who you are because it is simply impossible. Whether you are full of innocence or sass, grace or sarcasm, happiness or anger, it will show. It is a part of you, so embrace it. Love who you are and work on who you are until you are happy with yourself and you understand yourself. Just remember that who you project to the world is a part of you, but make sure it’s the real part of you.
