YOU will get the best in life only when you trust yourself, rather than trusting others. A mind with a clear destination has got all the power to change a negative situation into a positive situation.
There are times in our lives when we get stuck with a problem, or some fear or anxiety about our future. We desperately feel the need of having some extra energy to help us solve the problem. This is the time when we see people around us ready to give lot of advices and opinions. They will come out with lot of suggestions as to how to go about facing the situation. You can’t stop people from having opinions about you or people who come forward to give you suggestions about the problem that you are facing. But what you can do is to listen to all of them, but take the final decision on your own. No matter what all advices or suggestions you hear, the final decision on how to overcome a problem should be of your own. It’s your responsibility to understand that you have all the power to achieve what you want in life. If you do not realise this truth, you will remain in the hope that someone or something more powerful will come to your rescue.
Every problem is an opportunity
No external force has got the power to change your life. Realising that your power is the only power which will help you overcome any situation in life is called self realisation. It’s all about recognising your inner power which gives you all the strength to fix any problem in life. Consider every problem as an opportunity to show your real power. And from that moment everything you want will fall in place, because god has given you the situation to make you realise that if you don’t take control over your life, life is going to control you in a way you don’t want to live.
You are always bigger than the problem you face
A short story will help you understand this better. A group of frogs were walking in the forest when two of them fell into a deep pit. Both were trying its best to jump out of it while the other frogs kept shouting that as the pit is very deep it is better to stop trying and just die. One frog gave up and died. The other one still kept trying hard to jump out. It never paid heed to those words. Finally when it came out of the pit, others went and enquired. Eventually they came to know that the frog was actually deaf and that’s why it didn’t pay attention to their words. The frog was able to escape from the pit on its own not because it wasn’t afraid, but because it was not able to understand what others were telling. Therefore keep reminding yourself that you are always bigger than the problem you face. So, never ever give up; face any situation boldly and try your best to overcome it with your own efforts without getting discouraged by the outside world.
You can only manifest your decisions
In reality, you have all the powers to create a life you want to live if you have a clear vision for the life you want to experience. Once you create a vision, make it your decision because without a vision and decision, all your powers become powerless. To put it simple, any power without direction is powerless. Even after possessing the highest knowledge in this world, all your inner powers are of no use if you are directionless. Once you realise this ultimate secret, you will gain the strength to face and overcome any obstacles in life irrespective of what others suggest or advice. You will be able to rise above any situation. According to Vedas, when you are not able to find any other help, it is time to realise that you are the only one who is going to help your own self. In that very moment you get all the power not just to create a future but a great fortune!
Of course, these changes will not happen all of a sudden. Slowly and gradually you will start feeling the signs that show that you are in the right path in reaching your destination. Keep reminding yourself constantly that the change you want will happen for sure, not immediately, but definitely. That is the design of the nature. Tell this to yourself whenever you feel depressed or lonely. It will definitely give you the power to come out of the fear. In fact it will help you realise your powers which is above all these fear and doubts, above all failures and success and above life and death.
This New Year, transform your life to the next level. Create a new life. A new you. A new miracle in every aspect of life!
Wishing you a life full of peace, success and abundance.
