Five Messages To Reflect On
November 5, 2021
It’s the Festival of Lights, Diwali today. It’s a day to celebrate the victory of light over darkness, hope over despair, virtue over evil, truth over falsehood, and knowledge over ignorance.
As the day winds down and the new year begins, I wanted to share five messages that I would like everyone to take with them into the new year.
Your thoughts are powerful. Make them positive. Let the positive thoughts triumph over the negative always. This is the path to a more abundant and fulfilled life.
Don’t allow the voice of your fears to drown out the other voices in your head. Instead, ensure that your voice of reason, voice of belief, and voice of confidence are all louder than your voice of fear.
Rule your mind, else it will rule you. It’s a choice we face every day. Choose to be in control. Don’t cede power to your mind, your emotions. When you rule your mind, you rule your world.
You don’t lose unless you stop trying. There is always a silent battle happening inside you between “I can’t” and “I’ll try.” The former pulls you back from accomplishing anything while the latter empowers you to achieve. Until you try, you don’t know what you can do.
You are in control of your heaven or hell. You’re the master of your destiny. You may not always control your circumstances and environment, but how you respond is always within your control.
