Why are so many people living in darkness? Why do so many people settle for the crumbs? And why do so many people just resign themselves to the life that they have stumbled into? It is because of a lack of action and awareness, if you want to become aware you need to take action, but if you don’t ever take action then you will never discover what you are truly capable of achieving and becoming. This article has been birthed from a place of pain as I recover form a serious knee operation. It’s been a great opportunity to reflect on life, people and events.
The darkness that people perceive to be in starts to disintegrate with steps in the direction of your fears, have faith in what you want to accomplish and take daily consistent action to attain your goals. The darkness that clouds the mind is a direct result of inaction, fear engulfs the mind and paralyzes many into not taking action on their dreams. Most seem to lose the battle within the mind, the true battle is within, conquer thyself and you can become powerful, the true warrior is not the one who conquers a thousand men, but the one who has learned to conquer themselves.
We can be our own worst enemy at times. It is irrelevant what others have to say about you in regards to attaining your dreams, what you say about yourself is what matters most, believe in yourself, and go confidently in the direction of a greater life. One that is lived on the level that you are capable of living it on, settling for a timid life is a waste of one’s potential, we all have the capabilities to make a difference no matter how small the impact may be. Reach back once you rise out of the darkness and bring others up to the light. Help people, make a difference, improve people’s lives, educate others, give them wisdom, give them kindness, give them hope and faith that they too have greatness within them.
We are all trying to figure out how best to live life, we are all on a journey of self-discovery, but many seem to disregard this fact and just get caught up in the meaningless aspects of life, major time spent engaging in minor things is a major issue among the masses, following the crowd will not get you any further than the crowd, have the courage to take the road less travelled and see how far that shall take you.
Emerge from darkness to a life of abundance, if you can see it in your mind you can hold it in your hand, what you visualize will materialize with the rights steps taken in the direction of your desires. Imprint the images of the life that you want to live into your mind, visualize this every single day and affirm to yourself daily, ‘I am living life on my terms’. Act the part, be the one you see, now. To get to where you want to get to you must become the right individual; development of oneself is the key, personal development is what takes you from where you are to where you want to be, as the changes take place within, you will see your life change on the outside.
If you want to live your life in darkness forever don’t take any action, don’t develop yourself, just continue doing what everyone else is doing on a daily basis. But if you want to step it up, stop acting like the sheep and get serious about the grind, get serious about your life, and get serious about living life on your terms. If you want this life, take action, talk is truly cheap. Focus on what you need to do and do it. Believe in yourself you can achieve greatness.
