What are you doing with your mind?

“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.” ~John Milton

The mind is a powerful thing, and too often allow its running programs to take over and create our reality unchecked. How much better it is to learn to work with our minds to create a reality that works well for us.

What are you doing with your mind?

The best assumption

“All I know is that my life is better when I assume people are doing their best.” ~BrenĂ© Brown

It’s so easy to assume the worst of others, and the self-righteous anger in that moment can be an addicting high. But life is so much better when we assume that others are doing their best and move toward compassion instead when we see that they don’t have the resources to do better.

The real difficulty

“The real difficulty is to overcome how you think about yourself.” ~Maya Angelou

Whether the challenge is in healing, in pursuing your dreams, or in transforming your life, the real difficulty we face over and over again is changing how we think about ourselves. We must recognize our inherent worth and beauty to be able to move forward into the life we long for.

Where do you need to change how you think of yourself?

Imagine who you could become

“Your problem is you are too busy holding on to your unworthiness.” ~Baba Ram Dass

Imagine who you could become if you let that attachment to your unworthiness go. With your hands and energy freed to do whatever your soul is calling you to do, what could you accomplish? How might you soar?

Would you be willing to start releasing your attachment to your unworthiness today? What might that look like for you?

Own your story

“Owning your story is the bravest thing you will ever do.” ~BrenĂ© Brown

How well do you own your story? Are you still allowing others to dictate your story instead?

It takes courage to take charge of your own story, but there is freedom to be had in doing so. What do you need to do to better own your story today?
