Recently, I got training about Self Development, you know, about Life path or something like that. I’ve noticed, the whole concept is the same. At least, almost same as my principle towards life.. Well, I guess, I just want to share it. I hope it’s useful, especially for me.. 🙂
Admit or not, We are a product of our environment. It is true that we are shaped by environment, our parents, teachers, and friends. The question is, can we break from this conditioning or is it permanent?
Below is a few things so we can walk the path that we choose, not just follow others..
1) Plan The Path
One of the greatest methods to walk your Path is to plan that Path. People who seem destined to walk a Path set by someone else, do so because they fail to think outside the box they have been put in. They accept the Path placed before them and never question or envision it any differently. Those who break free, see the vision of their dreams and desires, not as some fairytale, but as something that can be achieved, something to make plans toward.
Do you walk a life of no planning, or do you walk the Path you choose?
Do you see your dreams as attainable, and work toward them, or mere fantasies?
Another way to ensure that you walk your own Path is to understand that your beliefs, consistent thoughts and actions determine your reality. If you consistently think of yourself as a loser, someone who can never get it quite right, your plans will fail. Much has been said of late about quantum realities and thinking. We are what we think! We become who we believe we are. If we believe, deep down in our hearts, that we will never make it, we won’t. If we believe that we are a survivor and that nothing can defeat us, it can’t. Henry Ford said, “If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.” So, what do you believe?
Going along with what we believe is what we consistently think. Whatever we consistently think becomes our belief system. If you consistently think yourself incompetent, you begin to believe it. If you consistently think of yourself as changing for the better, a winner, someone who succeeds, you believe it and it happens. This is how we change our beliefs. We consistently think certain thoughts and soon, they become part of us.
Thomas Edison once said, “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” The main concept is : God made a lot of marble, but never made a statue, right…??
If we want our beliefs to become reality, we had best be ready to roll up our sleeves and work. How do we work at it? We plan, we move, we revise, we move, it isn’t that hard. You might say you have no idea how to do what you want to do, you can learn. Read about it, take courses, try something and if it doesn’t work, try something else.
You know, I really love this quote : Great works and succeed are performed by perseverance, not just talent or luck…
