I wanted to talk about something that I think we all deal with. That is the idea of fear. All Fear is as “ False evidence appearing real” The things that we worry about for the most part generally never happen. Even if they do they never really are that important in the whole retrospect of your life. Are you really going to remember something that happened to you a year from now, two years from now or 5 years from now. Most of the time we wont. One thing that I do to try to ease my mind about fears is to look to some inspirational words from the bible.
Phillipians 4:6 Says “ Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to god”
James 1 “ Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds. Because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its works so that you may be more mature and complete, and not lacking anything.
Will Smith’s motivational speech about possibility to his son in the movie The Pursuit of Happiness. Many times we will be told by other people that we can’t do something. It can come from people who know nothing about you, strangers on the street, but, it can also come from people who you respect and love. When this happens, realize that although they are probably just looking out for you, they are really saying you can’t do something because either they are looking at the person you are today and judging your capabilities from that or they are saying that because it’s not possible for themselves.
You must realize that who you have demonstrated up until today will have little to do with who you can become a year from today. You can fail your whole life and still turn it all around by next year. As for people saying you can’t do something because they can’t do it themselves, realize that they aren’t you. Your determination and resolve alone will help you overcome the limitations that they were never able to. When that time comes where you have achieved that goal you have set out to get, you will help those around you realize that perhaps it’s also possible for them
Watch this video and realize if you can think it you can achieve it and do anything you set your mind to.
