What's Your Inner Voice Saying?

So have you noticed that over the last ten or so years there's been a real explosion about "what you think about you bring about?" For me, I started hearing about thoughts being powerful when The Secret came out.  

It really got me thinking about my life and my thoughts, and how my thoughts were things, and how I am where I am because of the thoughts I have etc...  Some would say bulls%&t!! Others would say it's revolutionized them. I say, proof is in the pudding. I look at people I admire and I've studied their lives a bit. I mean, if you want to be successful, do what successful people do right? So I look at people like Oprah, Bill Gates, Martin Luther King Jr., Michelle Obama, Will Smith, Jim Carrey, my parents, my favorite teacher, Denise Pelley and the list goes on and on.  

The common theme - IF YOU BELIEVE YOU CAN DO SOMETHING, THEN YOU CAN.  Another common theme was that they all believed in a higher power. I say the higher power is God, others may say Buddha - whatever you believe is ultimately your truth.  

The journey we go on to find "the truth" or "the meaning" of life, well, it's really what you believe it to be. If you believe life is hard and it sucks, well, you're damn right, that's your truth. And you will find that life is hard and it sucks. If you believe that life is full of opportunities and if you work hard you will succeed, then that is ultimately your truth and that's what your experience will be.   What you believe will be YOUR reality.

What I have found with any person I consider to be successful is that not only do they believe in themselves, they believe/have faith in others and want to see better for others. That's what drives them. ALSO their work ethic supercedes the norm. The whole work smarter not harder - well, who do you know that is super successful and did not go through a period of having to work their butt off? I'm not saying you have to work 18 hour days, but you do have to work and you have to work hard and you have to work smart. So the winning formula from where I sit is 

Belief  + Work + Desire for betterment of others = Success.

This is my opinion. You don't have to agree, but try it and see what happens. Oh, and you know that inner voice that we all have? Train it to tell you good things. Shut it up when it is being negative. Don't feed it garbage. Listen to positive and motivational messages. Surround yourself with positive and uplifting people (so important), and please know, that failure is only a failure if you let it be one. Turn it into an opportunity. Learn from mistakes and ENJOY THE JOURNEY.

YOU can do whatever you tell yourself you can do. I so believe that and I believe in you. You can do this!!!!!!
