Have you ever done something that, for the longest time, you thought you couldn’t do? What happened? I am the one person who truly believes in the power of the mind. I have experienced it and also witnessed others change because they started believing in the power of their mind. This is a common phrase in the current time but do you truly believe in it? It is all about what you tell your mind you can or cannot do. In this post, I will share with you how to achieve things you feel or know you cannot achieve.
I believed and still kinda believe I am the worst when it comes to art and creativity. Art is a talent and in my mind, I knew it was not meant for everybody. Being a perfectionist, I stay away from things I know I am not perfect at or I cannot perfect. This took a huge turn when I had to take a class that involved a lot of art and creativity. On the first day, I knew this was not meant for me. I had to change my attitude towards it and tell my mind that even though I am not good at it, at least I had to try.
I tried and failed. It was kinda hard at the beginning and somehow I could not get the hang of it. All the same, I decided to push on and just keep doing my best. In the background, I continually changed how I perceived art. Day in day out, I told myself I can do it. Even when I failed, I refused to accommodate negativity.
What about you? Are you struggling to do something? Is it possible that if you change your perception towards it you will manage?
The answer is yes! You possess the power of your mind to make it happen.

What you feed your mind will shape your future. ~ Chetna.
That is how powerful you are. Your mind is the difference between you and your future. We all have beautiful and ambitious dreams. But, do we really believe in those dreams? Do you feed your mind with things that will influence the beautiful future ahead?
If you tell your mind you are weak, then you will be weak. Your mind serves you.
Imagine you had a servant who would do everything you told him/her? Wouldn’t it be amazing? I personally would love that! When I realized the servant was my brain, it was the beginning of a new life.
Your mind is precious. It has the power to unlock infinite options and possibilities. ~ Unknown.
How is it that some people get a lifetime prescription of blood pressure while others refuse it and heal? Why is it that somebody who is sicker gets discharged earlier than the less sick patient?
Is the mind in charge of it all?
Successful people began by telling themselves, “I can do it. I need to do it. I am great enough to do it!”
What is it that you are struggling to change or do? Is it a habit you need to form? Or is it a challenge that you feel you cannot accomplish? Are there certain subjects or areas of life you feel you are not good at? For example, do you think you are not good at Math?
Sometimes, great people become great because they believe from the onset that they are great. You are also great only if you start feeding your mind with greatness.
The Hidden Truth
Everybody possesses the power of their mind. Your mind is there to fulfill your commands. Try a simple experiment, today tell yourself you can do the one thing you have been postponing. Give yourself one reason to do it.
Do not let the world snatch this power from you. Even when bad things have happened before or you have failed, it does not mean that you are a failure. Failure is a lesson. Learn and move on. It is about you. Just you and your mind!
If you do not design your own life plan, chances are that you will fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much. ~ Jim Rohn.
Do not give out that power!!
What should you feed your mind?
Positivity, success, hope, optimism, and motivation. Forget TV and read a book. Avoid negative people. Limit social media. Start being real with yourself.
You know that workout you have been postponing to start; the time is now! Start telling yourself you can do it.

I found that when you start thinking and saying what you really want then your mind automatically shifts and pulls you in that direction. ~ Jim Rohn
If you take a balanced diet, you become healthy, right? The same applies to the mind. When you begin to tell yourself you can do it instead of it is too hard, you will do it. Give yourself healthy food for the mind and you will experience peace and fulfillment.
You will start doing and seeing wonders in your life. Above all, you will take control of your life’s direction.
Whenever I feel discouraged, I always remind myself of the cup half full. In challenging times, I continuously say and believe that my breakthrough is near. I have trained myself to believe that I can do whatever I commit to doing. At times, it feels like you have hit rock bottom but always remember: it is okay. What matters is whether you will tell your mind to rise up and walk or you will have mercy on yourself.
I would love for you to discover the potential you have within yourself.
Start telling yourself the things you can do. Fill your mind with positivity and by default, you will always find a way no matter how dark the path seems.
