When your change your mind, it’ll change your life!
A few days ago, a friend and I had an intellectual and intriguing discussion. We were discussing how crazy the mind works. I gave the scenario of being in a room of 1000 people, with 999 singing your praises and 1 saying you’re not good enough. Sounds like good odds right? Well, I thought so too but the truth is our minds will not even hear the 999 but focus on finding out why the 1 was not pleased. It’s not that we don’t appreciate the praises but they are overshadowed. Our minds tell us we want all to love us, like us, support and be there for us but we all know that is not possible. There’s going to always be hatred, naysayers, envy and strife. It’s not a bad thing at all. In fact, it’s what we need to grow, be successful and get over the hump of pleasing others. Our perception must change in order for us to accomplish this.
Understand that if someone is trying to bring you down they are positioned beneath you. It’s simple really. The only way for you to fall is having someone pulling you at the ankles, or maybe even hugging you around the calves but they are not hovering over you. If they were above you, would you allow them to push you down? Wouldn’t you do something to hold your position or will you just give up power to your oppressor?
Embrace the love, ignore the hate and appreciate your new way of thinking!! There’s no time like the present!!
