TWO THINGS THAT HOLD US BACK

Doubting Oneself

I have often seen people having doubts in their own capabilities. Even before something is begun they believe they won’t be able to do it. So much so that the other day before even looking at it I heard my daughter say she won’t be able to solve a problem in Maths. Since she believed she would not. How many times we have been told that if we believe we can’t chances are we won’t. As a child, there is no fear. An infant has no doubt. He even believes he can fly or swim. Only after falling hard or been swept away with some wrong decisions backed by our constant feeding him to be fearful he realises that he should not be as brave as he was born. Even his trust in parents is revoked
It is not like that. We were born as free spirits and everything is coded in our DNA. We have the inbuilt courage to trust, to believe in our own knowledge.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.” ~Marianne Williamson
Sometimes in life we need to believe that it is not always luck. It is us. We are blessed. This life and the fact that we are reading or writing these bits of information is a sign that we are the messengers of light.
Trust is what we are born with and mistrust is what we learn -Wisdom Valley

Fear of Future

From self doubt arrives doubt on universe. Doubt on future. Doubt on destiny
Most of us do not live here, now. They are either in past or future. Never in present. I have seen my friends fighting with me because I am unable to call them at some point of time or I have not been able to give enough time in the past. Yet we spoil the present. I have also learnt this out of practice. I have seen myself getting trapped in this cycle in my past relationships. Fighting and making it worse for something that did not even mattered in present. Often, we have this little voice in o0ur heads telling them that we are fighting in vain. We want to say something but end up saying something else. All because we can’t get over time’s trap. Most of the things we worry might never happen. Yet we are here right now spoiling the best in fear of worst. Only if we accept pain as a part of life. We need to stop feeling ashamed of our imperfections.
“A miracle is a shift in perception from fear to love.“ ~Marianne Williamson
