We can be as Great as we Allow Ourselves to be!
Each of us has the potential for greatness; we just don’t always realize it! When we’re weighed down with doubts, fears and negativity, or unaware of our own underlying beliefs about life and ourselves, we feel unmotivated and incapable of achieving our dreams. But inadequacy is an illusion. The truth is that each of us is fully-equipped to create love, prosperity, success, or whatever it is we are seeking in life…all we need to do is get out of our own way!
From birth we are conditioned (by our parents, peers, or societal institutions) to think in limited terms. Oftentimes, we learn from others that life is a certain way, should be a certain way, or shouldn’t be a certain way. We observe the limitations that others have imposed on themselves and unconsciously apply them to ourselves. We listen to the negative things that others say about us and we buy into their judgments and beliefs. We become our own worst enemy, going through life feeling disempowered and discouraged because of the negative beliefs we have internalized. At some point we may come to the realization that our beliefs are not our own, yet we have allowed them to govern most all of the choices we make in life.
The truth is, we have the power to choose beliefs—empowering beliefs—that enable us to see ourselves for how we truly are: capable, gifted, and deserving Beings! When we eradicate the negative ideas and perceptions that have been instilled in us, we reveal the beauty of who we are and become enlightened to the infinite possibilities for our lives. Becoming conscious is a process, but it is a rewarding journey that holds the promise of personal fulfillment and the knowledge that we can be as great as we allow ourselves to be!
When we reconnect with our True Selves—our inner greatness—we become motivated to pursue the things that we may have previously dismissed or avoided. We realize that in embracing our innermost desires we will discover our purpose and create the path that is most rewarding. We gain the confidence that allows us to persist in achieving our goals and the insight to know that we deserve to let our full potential bloom. Greatness is within you, waiting to be expressed through your own acknowledgement. Start believing in yourself today!
