This past year, I decided to stop believing in the super-natural and finally started believing in myself! Wow! What a tremendous freedom I feel today, because of it. I used to believe, that "someone or something else" controlled my life. Even though I always had dreams, hopes, visions, and goals of "one day" being very successful in real estate, I constantly sabotaged all those "thoughts" with "if it's His will" or "if it's meant to be" or "His purpose" or "being content with what I had" (mostly broke) or "storing my treasures in heaven" , etc, etc. When I did come back to "myself" each time, and started to think for myself, I would always feel guilty about it, and I couldn't figure it out, why "I" allowed that to happen each time.
"Hearing the word" created a certain belief in my thoughts, which in turn caused me to think, act, say, and do the very things that I did not want to do! I did them anyway because I thought it was "his will for me". Perhaps YOU are still struggling with something similiar. Perhaps YOU are controlled by something else, like drinking or smoking or gambling, or who knows what! The bottom line is this: We can't "think big" for ourselves and for what we truly CAN accomplish in this life, if you don't let go of our "stinking thinking". We have to start "thinking" for ourselves. We have to "let go of the old" and start with the new, the new YOU!
As for me, at 63 (yes 63) I am still, so full of life! I have a complete freedom of thought. I can "think" what I want to think, without feeling guilty anymore. I can "believe" in my dreams again. I can "believe" in my goals again! I can "believe" in my visions again! I can "believe" in my plans to own a real estate investment company one day!!!
My friends, everything starts with......a thought, which in turn becomes a belief. Yes, we can Think Big....
