As you get older the dominant beliefs that you hold within your mind will start to harden. There are many people who are older who have negative hardened beliefs and then there are younger people who have been exposed to negativity that they start becoming old mentally well before their time. Most people are so corrupted by the false beliefs of mediocrity that they see no hope of a better future.
You have to be open-minded if you want to be successful. Closed mindedness is detrimental to developing as an individual, if you refuse to allow new beliefs to be inputted into your mind then you shall just think the same old thoughts and do the same old things and live the same old life. A new life comes about as a result of a new mind. And a new mind can only be developed through action and personal development.
Being closed minded and stubborn in your views in regards to attaining success and living your dreams is a major issue among many I have seen, people are so adamant in their disbelief of themselves that they have convinced themselves that they do not have what it takes to succeed and that belief has been repeated and affirmed daily for the past few years that they have sold themselves short on a life of misery that they play their role in. A lack of action is a major indicator of an individual’s belief in themselves. Being closed minded will result in you being a coward, it will result in you being a wage slave, just sitting around watching TV wasting your life during your free time, sitting around playing video games excessively, making excuses and fooling yourself that you are meant to be average.
Take a close look at your beliefs in the major areas of your life and identify the self-limiting beliefs that you have about yourself. Free yourself from these thoughts, open your mind, and release these self-imposed labels that you have attached to yourself. The beliefs you have about yourself stem from your dominant thoughts, you become what you think about. You must start to create a more developed version of yourself within the mind’s eye at first and then let your actions be in alignment to the person that you want to become.
Never let the closed-mindedness of others deter you or hold you back from going after your dreams. I have encountered many people who have sold themselves short, they have settled for nothing, they have become poisoned by mediocrity and they are living a lie betraying themselves daily. These are the ones who will try to hold you back from living your dreams, distance yourself from them, ignore their opinions; they are promoters of mediocrity, unconsciously. The majority of people have been educated to be average, to be an employee, and to be a sheep. If that is what you want then do what everyone does and you will get that type of life. The lazy man’s life is easy to live, it takes no effort being mediocre. It will take everything you have within you to live your dreams.
Start your day with the vision of you accomplishing your mission, living in your passion and fulfilling your purpose. Open your mind and let the thoughts of greatness flow through you. Open your mind, dare to dream, dare to believe, dare to be who you want to be and take action to live the life you truly want to live. Be open to the possibilities that there are no limits to what you can achieve, I urge you to start getting rid of the old beliefs about failure and instill new beliefs about success, live from your imagination and make your life a masterpiece.
