Why is it that oftentimes, we are the thunderous black clouds that rain down on our own parades? We have a thought like, "I want to publish a book this year" and the next thing we know, some doom and gloom little voice is lecturing us on how we don't have enough time to write a book, and the literary marketplace is so competitive that we'll probably never get picked up by an agent, and really we're not even that talented so it doesn't matter anyway.
We can become so self-defeating it's sick! But, if we just changed our tune a bit, we could probably accomplish every one of our hearts' desires!
Being that it's still early in this new year, I think we should all band together and agree to look on the bright side—and look for ways to make our dreams come true. Instead of saying, "I can't go back to school because I'm in debt and have too much else going on," commit to finding ways to make your dreams a reality! There is always a way to make things happen—you just have to be resourceful, optimistic and open-minded.
With so much negativity in the world, it's no wonder we become conditioned to squash some of our own best ideas. But life is too short to continue this way of thinking. You deserve to have everything you want in life. And if you devote all your hope and happiness to having it, you will. Your will can make anything happen. You just have to silence the little voice that's trying to hold you back. Believe me...I'm positive.
