There will always be people who do not believe in the great and wonderful things you can do. Make sure you are not one of them!
Believe in yourself and give yourself the victory, not defeat.
I was talking to a friend recently who was full of defeat. She had plans to do a bunch of things, go to school, buy a house, get a better job, be a better mother. She was complaining that she was failing in all her efforts and that nothing she touched worked out and that it never would. Her husband tried with all his might to convince her to keep going, to look at things in a positive light, to be encouraged and to stay strong. She just could not let go of the defeat.
My son is sixteen years old. Ever since he could talk he just assumed, inferred, and stated that everyone liked him, everyone was his friend, and he could literally do anything in the world. He never let things like reality and hard times deter him from his belief that life will turn out wonderfully. I admire his optimism. I like the fact that he believes in himself and that God will bless his efforts.
Sometimes life is hard, but so what! That is when you need inspiration to push forward. No matter how hard life is, you still have to live it. Find a source of inspiration even when things are hard.
Hard times come and go. The problem is that hard times feel like they are going to last forever! It is like when you go for a massage or are watching a great movie. During those pleasurable things, time seems to speed up. The hour-long massage feels wonderful but like it was only 30 minutes. The great movie seems to be over in the blink of an eye. But, hard things like waiting to hear about the condition of a loved one who has been hurt or meetings to discuss business problems seem to last forever. During the bad times, the bad experience seems to last three or four times as long as the clock says has passed.
