There is a popular maxim in my mother tongue that says: “ do not look at the length of your journey, rather look at the objective you want to reach” ; another says “do not complain about the size of your work, rather start and you will be surprised of how soon you will finish”. These different quotes have the same in depth meanings. They speak of many things that form part of our accomplishment as humans beings on earth. They speak of hard work, patience, faith ,fortitude,love and passion and beyond all measure, perseverance.
There is a variety of things happening along the journey of life. The road may seem impossible to tackle, but with perseverance , hard work and faith in God,we do reach our dreams. Without perseverance, many abandon the road and by doing this, kill the incredible that was meant to be seen and lived as a testimony of wonderful change and inspiration.
Contrary to common beliefs there is no single definition for power or clear steps that can be followed in order to become a powerful person. Power is most often linked with authority, independence, ability to influence and have a certain impact on one’s environment. However it does happen that we do not always fulfill all the above mentioned criteria of being totally independent. We sometimes find ourselves in situations that are difficult to handle all alone and yet we have to ask for help.
The root cause of weakness in this world is being in need. The more we become needy and the more we depend on others to help us the more we will become weak and the farther we will be from becoming powerful.
Thus it is important for one to work towards reaching a certain level of independence. In that journey we should cut off with behaviors that negatively shape our lives and interactions with all the patterns around us. We should keep a positive attitude and understand that we are the main , if the only responsible of our own destiny. We should be positive and avoid seeking others acknowledgement to feel alive. We are special and unique from the day we were born, and we are even champions since we were conceived in our mother’s wombs.
The greatest explorer on this earth never takes voyages as long as those of the man who descends to the depth of his heart. ~Julien Green
There is a reality behind every laughter. Laughing is a reaction to certain stimuli. Most commonly, it is considered to be a visual expression of a number of positive emotional states, such as joy, mirth, happiness, relief and so forth. However on some circumstances it may express other types of emotions that can be followed by embarrassment, apology or confusion. Some people may be going through difficult times but find the courage to put a smile on their face. Such behavior builds their courage and gives them a sense of hope and freedom.
