At any given moment, there are a ton of thoughts in our heads competing for our attention. Where are you most of the time in your mind? Are you always focusing on your complaints? On all that's lacking in your life? On everything that's wrong?
Today & EveryDay: Remember that thoughts have power. And what you focus on will shape your life. So get focused on where to focus your thoughts.
When we're devoting ourselves fully and passionately to something, we're putting in a lot of our time and effort toward that goal. We begin to live and breathe it, and we feel very connected to it. We want it to happen. We need it to happen.
But what if it doesn't? Will you allow yourself to be let down and unable to let it go?
Today & EveryDay: Remember to stay the course, but let go of the outcome. The remedy will always be to stay detached no matter which way things go.
noun -- the feeling of sadness or displeasure caused by the nonfulfillment of one's hopes or expectations; a person, event, or thing that causes disappointment.
We have all been disappointed by someone or by something, or even been disappointed in ourselves at times too. And we've certainly managed to be the ones who've disappointed others too.
Sometimes the displeasure we feel about a certain someone or a situation is very clear, because our expectations had been known. Other times, it may not be as obvious.
Whatever the case, it's important that you don't let disappointment rule your thoughts for too long. Remember that we're all human, doing the best we can, with what we have at that moment. Getting caught up in disappointment hurts no one but you. Acknowledge it, address it if appropriate, and then move on!
Sometimes we feel like we're on our way to greatness! A great energy and determination take over, and nothing can stop us now! Or can it???
It always seems that just then, an occasion comes to test the sincerity of your new path & the strength of your resolve. An obstacle appears and you easily begin to question whether to keep going. Don't give up so quickly. Stand firm. Expect the opposition. Know that you are great enough to withstand the attack. You can do it!
