Day 37 Stop
Everyday, we do something self-destructive. We tear ourselves down, we tell ourselves that we aren’t good enough, that we can’t do something. But we are! Sometimes those things that are telling us to stop, telling us that we aren’t good enough and that we can’t achieve something, are just the thorns. They are the thorns on that gorgeous rose, the thorns that discourage you from plucking the rose and achieving your goal.
The thorns are easily overcome, if you have the right tools. Stop allowing yourself to be shut down and discouraged from such a simple setback. Instead of allowing these negative thoughts and actions shut you down, instead look at how you can address them. Look at what tools you need to overcome them, and get them. Sometimes those tools, are just a different way of looking at a problem. You are your own biggest cheerleader, and your own worse critic. Don’t be afraid to cheer yourself on. Perspective is reality, and the sooner you realize this and change your perspective, the sooner life will begin rewarding you.
This world is an amazing place for those who want to achieve great things, just don’t forget to stop and smell the roses.
