If you are to be truly happy, you must be willing to let go of negativity.
Let go of ideas and thoughts that are negative and don’t serve you. These only work to bring you down and dim your light. Replace them with loving, positive thoughts and actions.
When we tell ourselves we can’t do it or are not good enough, we set ourselves up for failure. You live what you believe. Another way to think of it is that you draw in the energy you emit. Like attracts like, light repels darkness.
The same is true of people who constantly tell you that you can’t or are not good enough. They pull you down to make themselves feel better or keep you where you are. This does not serve you. It only hinders you.
People tend to want others to stay the same because that is how they know them. When we want to do something new and go after our dreams, they tend to tell us why we can’t or shouldn’t. Often this is their own fear of failure stepping in and flowing over onto us.
Fear produces many things. There is a healthy fear that keeps you safe and aware, but there is also an unhealthy fear. This is the one that places negative thoughts and self-doubt within.
You are meant to be happy and live a full and abundant life. Believe this. Own the feeling and the responsibility of joy in your life. When you do, you will realize that there is no place for negativity.
You have a gift to give the world. If you aren’t sure what it is, take some time to figure it out. Struggles you have overcome can become lessons for others, so they prevent the same pitfalls. Perhaps your story is meant to be shared to make others feel less alone in this world.
Specialized skills that you enjoy and do well usually indicate what your talent is. They come easy, and you are satisfied with a job well done as you complete your tasks.
We each have our own set of talents. When we use these in a positive manner and in the service of others, we shine brighter. Living the life you were meant to live means living authentically. You cannot live an authentic life if you fill it with negative thoughts and negative people.
It is easy to get bogged down with limiting beliefs and self-doubt. Even easier to believe others when they send negative vibes our way. Please understand that in order to let your light shine fully, you must let go of negativity.
