The fight for your mind is continuous and relentless. Out of that you can author more pain and confusion in your life or you can choose to be the author of your own success story...
We all have to stave off the wolf of bitterness, of stress, of worry, of aggravation and of failure. I think if these things fought us openly it would be easy to overcome because we would be able to see our enemy and we would begin to recognize him...but the way most of our battles are fought as they show up as our own thoughts.
I often hear people ranting about their haters (and I'm not trying to minimize their haters) but when I probe deeper often people can only identify one or two such people who have made negative or disparriaging remarks to them or about them. That is the power of words and how strong they can be in our lives. Our whole narrative can shift because of one person's words and because of one person we begin to feel, think, and act like the whole world is against us.
We fail to take these thoughts captive. Many of us wander around for years with the negative words of a parent or a teacher wounding us through out our lives. All the actions and things that have happened are still very much alive in our minds... subliminally sabotaging us every single day. Things embeded deeply in our consciousness that we never took care of and now that have become bedrocks of our belief system and make up who we think we are... It's time to rewrite this narrative, and be the author of your own success story!
