"Don't be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality. If you can dream it, you can make it so." – Belva Davis
Life is simple. Everything happens for you, not to you. Everything happens at exactly the right moment, neither too soon nor too late. You don't have to like it - it's just easier if you do. If you have a problem, it can only be because of your unquestioned thinking. How do you react when you believe that the past should have been different? You scare yourself stuck, because what you resist persists. You get to keep your stressful world, a world that doesn't exist except in your imagination; you get to stay in the nightmare. It hurts to oppose reality, because in opposing reality, you are opposing your very self.
When is the last time you looked inside? It's funny that we spend a lot of time focused on everything outside of ourselves and not so much time on what is going on internally. Maybe it's because we forget or we're just too busy. Successful living happens when you realize your true power lies within. This quote captures the idea perfectly:
Most people think that the world is outside them. They live their life backward, running after security and approval, as if by making enough money or getting enough praise they could be happy once and for all. But nothing outside us can give us what we're really looking for.
To be successful in life, you need to ask for what you want. You may not always get it, in fact there will be times when you won’t. Just remember, if you don’t ask the chances of getting what you want are much lower than if you do ask. And, if you are prepared to receive a ‘no’ or a ‘yes’ then you won’t be surprised either way. Then it just becomes a question that is looking for an answer. So why not take a chance and just ask yourself?
