Be aware of what you believe. Before you know it, it’ll become your destiny. So what do you believe? Are you ever bothered by thoughts like: ‘Nah, I will never be able to do that…’ or ‘I don’t know/have enough to do that …’ or ‘I’m such an idiot for trying this …’ – please question that thought.

There’s an underlying belief that’s bothering you. Humans have all kinds of irrational beliefs. These are things we believe, but are in fact not true. Things like: ‘When I’m doing something out of the ordinary, my friends and family will stop loving me’. That may sound a bit childish, but in fact, it’s what we think a lot. So we continue to play small, because deep down, we fear losing the love from the people we hold dear.

But our minds are playing tricks on us, dear friend. Our brain is an devious mind-playing device. You can control your thoughts. It takes a bit of practice, but you can. You can tell your mind to come up with a better thought, a positive thought. You may not always be in charge of what happens to you in life, but you do have a choice in how you deal with it.
