Look closely at the lives of the people about you, and you will see that, wherever their paths have led them, their thoughts went on before. Pasteur did not become a great chemist without first devoting all his thoughts to chemistry. John D. Rockefeller, Sr., did not become a millionaire without thinking about money and the ways and means of acquiring it. Through their concentrated thoughts these men achieved what they wanted most out of life. ~Robert Collier
You give away your power to others when you respond to rude, critical and argumentative people. Do not let others rob you of your peace.
Louise Hay affirmations:
I am willing to let go. I release others to experience whatever is meaningful to them, and I am free to create that which is meaningful to me.
I let go of all expectations. People, places and things are free to be themselves, and I am free to be me.
You are not a helpless victim of your own thoughts, but rather a master of your mind. What do you need to let go of? Take a deep breath, relax, and say to yourself, ‘I am willing to let go. I release. I let go. I release all tension. I release all fear. I release all anger. I release all guilt. I release all sadness. I let go of all old limitations. I let go, and I am at peace. I am at peace with myself. I am at peace with the process of life. I am safe.’
“Believe in your potential. Believe in your capabilities. Keep focusing on what you can do, and not on what you can’t. Constantly work to empower yourself. Trust in your goodness and in love. Know your intentions, and hold on to those intentions no matter the outcome. No one can take your power away from you without your permission. Reclaim you power. Empower yourself. You are capable. Focus on the steps and the doing and you will soon find yourself doing and experiencing things you never imagined you could be. One brave step at a time. Perseverance, diligent, and consistent effort are incredibly powerful.”
“Everyone lies to themselves, but many people do it with good intentions. They want to believe what they tell themselves, it is often times the best possible version of reality for them. Although it may not be accurate, it is a mural of their desires, aspirations, optimism and passion. These people usually either need time or a new experience to discover the truth. People who lie to themselves for different reasons are often times trying to avoid something or escape blame for things they have done.”
Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.
The reason why the average person never gets tired from play but always gets tired from work is because he loves the former but does not love the latter. The work is mechanical, the play is not; therefore the one wearies while the other exhilarates. The work, however, would never be mechanical if it were loved, and it is possible to love work just as much as we love play. ~ Christian D. Larson
Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated, thus, everyone’s task is unique as his specific opportunity to implement it. ~Viktor E. Frankl
