The Power Lies Within You
It’s very easy to allow society to discourage you from your wildest dreams. After all, why would anyone want to see you succeed? Use that as motivation when society laughs at your dreams. You can climb as high as you’d like because this is your life and you are the player; God has given you free will to live as you wish. Don’t allow lavish goals to become impossibilities. Anything is achievable if you can envision it within your eye’s mind. Forget all the details of, “How, when or even why.” Just keep dreaming and believe that life will position all the pieces in their right place. The next thing you’ll know after you open your eyes is your newfound reality based on a once upon a time dream. Never stop believing.
It’s also very easy to get discouraged when you don’t see the results you want. Many people motivate themselves by believing in something new, only to become disappointed when they don’t achieve it. A belief does not always immediately manifest; oftentimes, it takes years for a result to become apparent. People are very easily influenced by their environment. Whenever something bad happens that is not even related to their beliefs, they quickly become discouraged and give up. This is what separates successful people from those who plateau; they never stop believing.
Don’t Give Up and Never Stop Believing
No one ever said that life is easy. Even for people born into wealth, they struggle with mental health problems due to insecurity of not having achieved their own wealth. You have people who don’t have wealth and struggle, and people with wealth who struggle. Mental health has no boundaries. Wealth is materialism and does not guarantee happiness and satisfaction in life. What guarantees happiness and satisfaction is the way you view the world and the thoughts that you experience. If you constantly experience self-defeating thoughts, your beliefs will crumble and your motivation to achieve your goals will fumble.
You have to understand that your environment will constantly challenge you; there’s no avoiding it. There are simply too many factors in our environment that easily influence us, such as people, the media, employment, education, etc. The only way to minimize environmental influences is by isolating yourself remotely in the countryside. But what will isolation accomplish you? Isolation is just a form of running away and hiding from your own expectations. People who isolate are either depressed or scared to work for their goals; they’re afraid of failure. You cannot be afraid of failure. The most successful people in life have admitted that it was through failure that they learned to become successful. Don’t ever give up and never stop believing in yourself.
