Simple message but a very powerful one. Be yourself, be free, be true— Be happy, be silly, be wild.

Most people drift through life with no sense of purpose, no direction or true joy.
They pay no attention to the fact they are not happy, and never address the mindset and choices that led to that unhappiness, but if they did they might be able to reverse it.
Most people have limiting beliefs, and so their life is limited. They believe life is hard. They believe life is a challenge, full of sadness and misery.
They believe at some level, consciously or subconsciously. The best days are behind them. They believe fitting in, and wearing masks will get them a better or more comfortable life, then being the true self and following their true passions.
Their happiness is dependent on what happens; they are not in control of life; life is in control of them.
If you can switch your beliefs about life to the following seven empowering beliefs, life will start to work for you. The blessings will appear.
The joy that is inside you will start rising out. Here are seven beliefs you must have to live a great life.
Let me go over each one to help you understand them a little more.
Number One— I Decide How I Feel No Matter the Circumstances.
Have you ever noticed how unhappy people seem to get upset over just about anything? Did you also notice that they seem to have a lot to be unhappy about?
The truth is they let every little circumstance make them unhappy.
Someone cuts them off in traffic… ruins their day. Someone says something unkind, and they replay in their mind for weeks. When you adopt the belief that you are in control of how you feel ,and you commit to doing daily work on yourself, two things happen.
First is that you become empowered. You know nothing has the power to make you unhappy. Only your thoughts can do that. You decide what every event means, and you can choose to see the blessing in everything.
The second is you start to attract better circumstances. When you are putting out better energy, better is attracted to you, and you notice more of the magic all around you.
Know that you decide how you feel and commit to do that daily work on yourself, so you can start and live every day in a beautiful state.
Number Two— I have So Much to Be Thankful For
This is pretty easy for anyone to understand, happy people are happy because they are because they appreciate more than unhappy people. It has been said many times; you can be happy with little or miserable with much.
Knowing this, you understand the goal is never to accumulate wealth or material things; it is to get to the place where are you feel like you have everything.
Because that is all it is, a feeling. Feel blessed, and you’ll be blessed. Feel blessed, and you are blessed.
Number Three— Being Myself Attracts the Right People
One of the greatest tragedies of human beings is that the majority change who they are to fit into the world. They believe but it being like someone else, will make them fit in better with others, be liked by others. But the truth is, you’re never attracting the right people by being someone you are not.,
Be yourself, and the right people for you will show up. The right people will love the real you.
Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: “to be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
Have the courage to be you. Always.
Believe and know if you do so, the perfect people and circumstances will show up in your life!
Number Four— I Am Capable of Anything
Successful people, know with absolute certainty anything they believe can be their reality. Imagine what you could create in your life with the belief I am capable of anything.
Well, you are, so believe it, know it and apply it to something you want. That dream you have. Plan for it. Work for it and get it!
That change you’ve been putting off: Believe you can do it and go for it!
Number Five— Kindness Always Wins
Some people believe kindness is a weakness. They believe kind people get walked over. They’ll point to an example from years ago, where they gave their heart and soul and that one person trampled all over it, so they adopt the belief that this is what happens every time they are kind.
If someone tripped you over once while you were walking you wouldn’t let that person stop you from walking, would you?
It’s not the walking that made you trip over it was the unkind person. In life, yes, some people will do you wrong, but that doesn’t mean you throw everyone into the same basket.
You are kind because that’s who you are not because you want something out of it, like a transaction.
Who do you think kind people are attracted to? Other kind people or those who refuse to be kind because they were hurt by someone else long ago?
Who do you think amazing people love to be around: those who are kind and genuine or those who are closed off?
Treat others how you want to be treated. Not because you want something from them, but because you know the world is a little better every time someone like you does good, no matter how small.
Number Six— Everything is a Blessing or a lesson
We’ve all been through hard times, every one of us. Some people who have been through minor hard times believe that their life is far less because of the event.
Are those that have been through hell, believe at some level, it was sent as either a lesson or a blessing.
Think of the survivors of diseases or abuse, they go through the worst kinds of pain, but because of the pain, the rise out of it with a new passion for life, they arise out of it with a sense of purpose wanting to help others who are going through the same pain.
You can learn from your past. You can use it. Believe it was sent to make you stronger, better, and more compassionate. Believe there was a reason for it.
Number Seven. My best Is Yet To Come
What would you attempt? What could you achieve if you knew your best is yet to come? Well, guess what.. your best is yet to come.
Your best is yet to come.
Look yourself in the mirror each morning and tell yourself, “my best is yet to come.” My best is yet to come, believe it. Live that belief.
Adopt these seven beliefs and see how your life transforms around you.
Anyone can achieve a reasonable life. And okay life, an okay job an okay relationship anyone can have this.
If you want a great life, you must commit to leading a great life, to doing things the majority do not want to do.
Commit to thinking like I’m a naughty not like the majority.
The journey can seem hard, but anything worth getting never comes easy. Plus, anything attained with hardwork stays with you forever.
Take the weekend to rest your mind and body so you approach the coming week with energy and strenght.
We can’t all like the jobs that we do, but in our days off we have a chance to learn, evolve, and grow.

Thoughts have incredible power. Praying, affirmations, mantras all have the same effect. They focus our minds on positive energy, and like attracts like.
Happiness attracts Happiness. Sadness attracts sadness.
Choose wisely today.
What is fear?
Like any other negative emotion, fear is something that is not real. F.E.A.R. – False Evidence Appearing Real… Underlining “FALSE”.
But even though it does not exist, fear can control you, fear can manipulate you, fear can determine your destiny. In fact, the majority of the population lives in fear.
They fear being abandoned, they fear for their security, they fear for their health.
We try to avoid what we are afraid of, so we run from fear, we find it hard to be ourselves, we do not dare to live the life that we want because we are so afraid.
But, when you stop running, facing your fear with faith, fear loses its power over you.
When you have the faith to confront your fears you will see that those things that you are afraid of are not real, and are not likely to happen.
Picture your life 1 year from now talking to a friend about the last 12 months…
Do you want to reflect on a year where you where afraid to do what you really wanted? Where you let fear control all your decisions?
Do you want to reflect on a year that was filled with amazing moments, amazing experiences, filled with love joy and happiness. A year that you walked in faith and accomplished more than you ever dreamed.
It’s ok to be afraid and still act, it’s ok to be afraid and still be you, it’s ok to be afraid and still love. It’s ok to be afraid.
You don’t need to let go of fear and then act, you can act despite of fear.
Because fear is not real and something that is not real cannot stop you!
Acting despite fear is….. faith. So … Don’t let your life be run by fear. Let it be run by faith.
What are you most afraid of?
Take a good look at it, bring it to your awareness, look at that fear knowing that it is not you, that it’s not real.
Look at that fear knowing that it has no control over you when you walk in faith, knowing that God is by yourside every step of the way.
Pray each morning and throughout the day. Keeping your mind on the goodness of God; He will give you courage and confidence.
Fear can only run your life if you avoid it. When you face it, it doesn’t matter how big it seems, it will disappear. You will see clearly that “this is not real”, “this is not me”.
You don’t need the fear to be completely gone for you to live, for you to have faith, for you to act on love, for you to do what you want.
Because fear cannot hold you back when God is by your side.
You can feel fear and still act in faith and you can feel fear and still be you.
Don’t let fear run your life, instead, live out of faith and love.
Once again, imagine your life this time 10 years from now…
Do you want to live 10 years running away from your fears?
Do you want to live 10 years from a place of faith, being courageous despite of fear, living a life of love, a life of adventure, a life of excitement, a life of passion… your dream life?
Don’t let fear control your life…dare to dream, dare to love, dare to have the faith to be You.
Thanks for reading. Enjoy the rest of your week.
Rev J Martin
Just do it is probably one of the most recognisable slogans there is. It is a direct command. Sometimes that is what we need. Someone to say, just do it.
I can only speak for myself, but I often think about doing something for weeks or even months before I start.
We all have things that we would like to do, things that would improve our mental and physical health, but we talk ourselves out of it with excuses.
Starting is the hardest part. Attending that first meeting or making that first phone call, or puting them running shoes on for the first time. Once that is out of the way though, it’s so much easier to follow through.
So, whatever you have been putting off for weeks, months, or even years. Take the first step today. Send the email, make the call. Invest in some running gear. it could be as simple as getting some information.
What holds most people back is they get a burst of faith and decide to climb a mountain before they have walked a mile.
I will use weight as a relatable example.
If you want to lose 10 pounds, eating nothing but salads and milkshakes is not a good starting point. You might keep it up for a week, but chances are you will crash and end up upset which will lead to binge eating and ending up heavier than before.
Instead, start by replacing the slice of cake with a handful of nuts and an orange. Park the car 10 minutes away from work; a few small changes like this will get better results.
Then, when you see the improvement, it will give you the faith that you can do better. So, you slowly cut out unhealthy foods and replace them with healthier options.
Most challenges that we face can be broken down into a series of steps. And when you do this, the challenge seems more manageable; fearful thoughts change to thoughts of faith, which in turn shift to feelings of accomplishment when you start completing each step.
Now, instead of a vicious circle of fear leading to worry and doubt, you have a circle of faith, expanded awareness, and peace of mind.
Whatever is the main thing that is holding you back take the first step today, just do it. And remember that one small step forward is better than staying where you are.
Enjoy your week.
