We know we must change; we know it would be beneficial, but something holds us back? Fear, doubt and worry play their part, but I believe the real reason we find it hard to change is much deeper…
We are all born with unlimited potential, but over time, most of that potential fades away.
Growing up we are constantly reminded of our limitations.
Maybe a parent, guardian or classmate told you something so many times that you believed them. “You’re aiming too high. No one has ever done that before. Better to play it safe, don’t take risks.
They might have meant well, but they were projecting their fears and failures on you. Because they might have tried, or they don’t believe that they can do it. It’s important to know that it’s not really about you. It’s about what they feel and their fears inside.
Or maybe what was said was more destructive, “You’re not good enough, you’re not intelligent enough, you haven’t got what it takes. You haven’t got the looks or the confidence.
If you were told any of these types of things as a child, it is quite natural to experience resentment, anger, or bitterness when you replay what was said or done. But it is so vital that you release them feelings or they will get the best of you.
Down Memory Lane
Growing up, I was bullied, meaning I felt inferior to others for most of my life. I didn’t feel like I was popular enough. Intelligent enough, talented enough. No doubt holding this attitude had an impact on my life. But thankfully, I never held negative feelings towards the people that hurt me. I just kept moving forward and did my best.
Only years later did I realise that holding this attitude was a gift.
To make progress, to be truly happy, healthy, and successful, you must learn to let go of the past so that it doesn’t affect you in the present. What happened may not have been fair. What was done to you was wrong, but letting it replay in your mind will not help. All that replaying the hurt will do is make you more depressed, angrier, and more enraged.
Replaying past events can even make you doubt yourself, which will affect your language, meaning you say things like, “I couldn’t do that, I can’t learn new things, I’m not good with people, relationships, money, etc.
The negativity of the past can affect you in the present; it can affect your faith, it can affect your thinking, making you question what you can and can not do.
One hurt or mistake can limit what you can achieve.
The one person that hurt you can cause you to mistrust everyone and make you think that all people are the same. They’re not.
The one mistake you made can make you doubtful of your abilities, meaning you never try anything that challenges you or anything new.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
When you remove all negativity from your thinking, your faith will grow. meaning you will speak more confidently, and expect good things to come into your path.
By taking specific steps, your life can improve in amazing ways.
In my new book, The Power to Change Your Life, I break down the process in a simple, understandable way. Not in a list of dos and don’ts, but through relatable stories that will help you digest the information quick and easily.
There are seeds of greatness within each of us, but those seeds can lie dormant when we choose to focus on the past.
If someone gave you a plant to look after, you would love and care for it, ensuring that it got the maximum amount of nutrients and light. But for some reason, we choose to neglect the gift of life because of a few wrong decisions and hurts?
Resulting in us growing weak and never having the strength to bloom.
Choose to plant your seeds of greatness today, and you will not believe what you will achieve.
Experience the power of change; let the loving energy of God flow into your life.
