Happy Wednesday. Have a beautiful day. Enjoy.
Always do your best……and remember that every choice you make or don’t make has a profound impact on your life experience. Those choices will be governed by how good a relationship you have with yourself. That relationship must hold hope in its heart; for hope is the intangible belief in self. It must have discipline and the ability to set priorities. Ultimately, It must be committed to that hopeful future and take action every day towards that vision. This is the private victory. To be so committed to one’s own future that we become unstoppable. Every last one of us will fall several times in life, the question is will we rise after we fall? In our private victory we must use discernment to understand when our ego is an imposter, imposing on us.
Making us think that we are something we are not. So be honest with yourself; take the time to understand where you are governed by fear. Look into your daily tendencies and see where you procrastinate, or lack discipline. Hold the mirror up and see your world as it truly is. This means that you will need the courage to be vulnerable. You will need to show up every day and be seen. Finally, you may need to ask for help when you need it most. There is no shame in asking for help; for we are all just walking each other home. While there will always be days that feel stressful, we can be like the diamond in the rough. Because that diamond was a chunk of coal that did well under pressure. What lies inside of us all is the ability to rise when we fall; you will be strong because you have been weak, you will be fearless because you have been afraid, and you will be wise because you have been foolish. The sun sets to rise again. Namaste.
Stephen R. Covey said “Private victory precedes public victory. Self mastery and self-discipline are the foundation of good relationships with others. Most people equate discipline with an absence of freedom. In fact, the opposite is true; only the disciplined are truly free. The undisciplined are slaves to moods, appetites, and passions. Whip those procrastinating, undisciplined tendencies, those inclinations towards weakness. Do it in private and I am telling you, you will sweat it out; it is not an easy thing – it is a most difficult task – but take the time to do it and watch the gradual serenity and power that will come into your life.
