Here’s a fact that will make you stop and think: there have been twenty-one notable civilizations in the world, nineteen of them crumbled from within.
Nineteen crumbled from within! It had nothing to do with outside forces, they couldn’t get the inside right and ended up destroyed, dissolved, out of existence.
So what about you? What about us, each individual? What do we do to make sure we don’t cease to exist?
You build a core so strong its impenetrable. You develop a positive never-say-die mindset of self-worth, determination, love, abundance, giving and gratitude, and then you share it with others. It’s called personal growth, being the best that you can be every day and striving to be even a little bit better than you were the day before.
The path to a better future rests solely on the shoulders of one person: you. You and only you are responsible for your life. If you adopt that mindset then outside forces cannot penetrate, they may lay obstacles and roadblocks at your feet, because that’s what life does. But they cannot stop you. Only you can stop you.
What you do for yourself and then how you share that self with others builds a foundation which outside forces cannot invade. You build an inside fortress of fortitude and grace under pressure for which others not only stand in awe and wonder, but are attracted to its force and light. It’s not some hocus-pocus, it’s not a dream, it’s reality. Whatever you think, whatever you feel, you attract to you. If you are attracting the positive energy and the right people then you will live in strength, you may break, you may fall, but you will have the will and desire to get back up, every time.
What if you think or say “It’s too late, I’m already too far down, or I’ve lost the will to rise back up’?” Then take this in, a passage from The Magic by Rhonda Byrne, (a book I read once already, just started again and whole-heartedly recommend):
There is an exquisite feeling many of us had as children, that everything is good, that every day promises more excitement and adventure, and that nothing could ever thwart our joy for the magic of it all. But somehow as we grew into adults, responsibilities, problems and difficulties took their toll on us, we became disillusioned and the magic we once believed in as children faded and disappeared. It’s one of the reasons why as adults we love to be around children, so that we can experience that feeling we once had, even if it’s just for a moment.
I am here to tell you that the magic you once believed in is true and it’s the disillusioned adult perspective of life that is false. The magic of life is real – and it’s as real as you are. In fact, life can be far more wondrous than you ever thought it was as a child, and more breath-taking, awe-inspiring and exciting than anything you’ve seen before. When you know what to do to bring forth the magic, you will live the life of your dreams. Then, you will wonder how you ever could have given up in believing in the magic of life.”
Life can be magic if you decide it to be so. If you educate, inspire and motivate yourself – then share those lessons of personal growth with others. Give without the expectation of anything in return and build yourself up from the inside in a way that nothing can break you down.
Fall, but never crumble. Live and leave a legacy. Be significant and begin today.
Until next time, thanks for taking the time
