Where we go in life can be based upon our perceptions. It determines whether we achieve success and overcome our greatest obstacles.
The single largest flaw that we exhibit is that negative thoughts penetrate and alter our perceptions. Although it’s not done purposefully, it’s part of our system’s response to protect us from greater harm or barriers. Negativity will always present itself, it doesn’t hide long. As a society, we generally focus more on negative attributes as way of finding comfort to the issues presented and testing different scenarios as a way of coping. We consistently replay conversations and experiences as a way of justifying. Our perceptions can bring us darkness and doom, but also light and hope. Once you master how to counterattack, you’ll begin to achieve greater success.
Be tough. Look directly at your greatest challenge and tell yourself that you will not stand down. That you will not subdue to defeat. That despite odds, you have what it takes to succeed, to soar higher. As confidence builds, a new rush feeling settles in. You gain strength. Your pathways ahead begin to clear and your goals are within sight. Go ahead and start taking those steps forward. Hold back nothing. Believe in yourself. Every moment is an opportunity to succeed. But you got to want it. You got to fight for it. Your support will always be there, but in the end, it’s your perception that propels you to success and to overcome obstacles.
Never stand down and “keep those feet moving.”
