Since the beginning of time, planting doubts into someone’s thoughts has come so naturally to humans.
You want to do something and ask around for opinions – What do you get? Either they aren’t sure you can or they just don’t care what you do with your life. Ofcourse, there are those who encourage too. But if you think you cannot, then it’s impossible to achieve anything at all.
About a year ago, I thought I wasn’t capable enough. Had dreams but was always doubtful if I’d be able to make it possible. Believing in me was something that I could not do. There I go again! The words ‘I cannot’ is so strong that it can destroy what little faith you have in yourself. That coupled with negativity can lead you spiralling down and keep you there till as long as YOU want to.
I started reading books – enhancing positive thinking, how to’s, do it yourself, etc. I started processing the information and began planning on how to regain my confidence. Bear in mind that different techniques works differently for each person. I needed to build on positivity, mostly from within. Today I can proudly say, I’m involved with Drikshya (check out my post in September), Head of Photography Club at St. Mary’s Church, Dubai and maintaining the St. Mary’s Catholic Sports Community Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/StMarys.SportsFest?ref=aymt_homepage_panel.
It is important to know your worth and your capabilities. That along with confidence can help achieve goals. Change ‘I cannot!’ to ‘I can!’
Today your task is to meditate on ‘I CAN’ and go out there and dream big. It is possible!
