Good Afternoon! I wanted to start this Wednesday off with an inspiring post that would not only inspire other but myself as well. I get into these ruts where I focus on my current predicament instead on focusing on the future and the great things will come my way. It gets even tougher when I feel overwhelmed with what I am facing and many times, I just feel like shutting down completely to take the pressures that I put on myself. I know that doing the physical work is essential to getting to where I need to be but it wasn’t until I went on Instagram and saw a post by singer Jessie J that spoke to my soul. All of this time, I have done everything backwards. I have tried to achieve all of my goals and dreams without picturing them already accomplished in my mind. I assumed that once I was able to accomplish them then my mentality would change. After reading the quote posted above, I realized that I won’t be able to move forward to achieve anything if I can’t envision it beforehand. The mind has to able to visualize your future success before it manifests itself in life. Instead of seeing is believing, you have to believe for you to see changes in your life.
I have so much going on in my life that it can be difficult for me to think about the future. I know that the mind is a powerful tool because I have witnessed people who were in tough situations overcome them and not only survive but thrive all because they can change their perception on their situation and focus their energy on their passions and dreams. I am learning that although you can only take things one day at a time, you can’t lose sight of the bigger picture and that your end goal is to get to wherever it is that will make you happy/successful/fulfilled etc. 2016 has started off with a bang for me and even with all the challenges I face, my mind is focused on getting to where I want to be in all aspects of my life.
Hit me up in the comments section and let me know what wisdom you have to offer this week! Talk to you soon!
Always remember to love and live luxuriously!
