The Power of Self

Questions to self;

What do I want out of life?

Do I have any idea of what it is that I am seeking?

Do I find myself on a seemingly perilous journey that appears to lead to nowhere?

Do I often times wander aimlessly about with no real sense of purpose or direction?

Do I feel as though I am irrelevant and that my life has no meaning?

Do I find myself admiring the life of others and feel shameful about  the life that I am living?

If you have answered yes to all of these questions then you are wasting your life away…If you have answered yes to one or two then you definitely still have some soul-searching to do..If you don’t understand anything about yourself, what could you possibly hope to understand about others and life in general?

You see life is a construct of many unknowns and can be just a little bit confusing at times. The worse is not knowing oneself and not understanding what we are capable of. If we have not been given fundamental teachings of principles and morals  in our homes or elsewhere, then we are left to our own devices. I know this all too well and have lived it…

Principle; a fundamental truth or proposition that serves as the foundation for a system of belief or behavior or for a chain of reasoning.

Morals; a person’s standards of behavior or beliefs concerning what is and is not acceptable for them to do.

Understanding, embracing and establishing these core essentials helps us to build character and minimize our flaws…If you know who you are and what you want, then you can begin to map out a plan and strategy of how to accomplish it..It’s really that simple, but if you don’t, well then life becomes an overwhelming and sometimes exasperating and frustrating process to contend with..So, what is a person to do?

Often times we have a tendency to complicate things by over analyzing and over thinking or just not thinking at all or being much too reactive.. We sometimes fail to factor in to the equation what the consequences of our actions or inaction’s could be.. This is where you need to just slow the heck down, get a little introspective and process things..There is an old adage that says ( keep it simple) which can go a long, long way in life…Why attempt to over complicate things?  If you are lacking something then the most simplest thing to do is to figure out what it is and correct it. I know, sometimes it’s can be challenging and it’s much easier to just throw your hands up and say, oh what’s the use..

Nonsense, because that is a game changer and you will develop a pattern of always doing just that.. You can overcome anything, that’s why you’re still in the game.. You are much stronger than you realize and things take time to materialize..Take the time to figure it out man and if you can’t well then get some help.. Preferably from someone with integrity whom you respect and admire..It’s just one step you take in the right direction..It may not be what you want to hear from them but most times it is exactly what you need to hear.. Question is once you have the information, what are you going to do with it? My one suggestion is this, stop waiting on something or someone to change things in your life because believe me when I tell you that it will never happen! You are all the change you need…That’s the power of self….Have faith in you..
