This is my first blog in association with my new clothing line ( http://www.chakrawear.com / http://www.facebook.com/chakraclothingcompany )and the temptation for post number 1 is to blindly post key words which will link to my webpage and espouse inspirational and motivational words which form the basis for my company. But in truth, there are a million things that go through your head when you’re trying to achieve your goals and I think it’s important to acknowledge why we need words of encouragement, and why they’re so effective.
Virtually every day I can find doubts and fears which question my decision to leave my job and start out on my own. There seem to be reasons I could fail at every turn! The mind is so easily distracted by the pitfalls and hardships that we face, so much that the obstacles we would tackle with confidence for the benefit of others become enormous difficulties when we do them for ourselves.
That’s why the power of positive thought and positive energy is so vital in our lives. How often does a quotation change your perspective and your mood? How often has the touch of a hand or a hug been enough to sustain you through the most trying times? Even songs can lift you from the depths of doubt and despair to the pinnacle of belief. If you’re lucky enough to have people who believe in you and support you, that encouragement will overwhelm and conquer the challenges we face.
More importantly than the encouragement of others is the belief in one’s self. Henry Ford said “whether you think you can, or you can’t… you’re right” – and he’s absolutely correct. Believe in yourself, in everything you do. Your life will be better in every way imaginable.
And during those times when your belief wanes, it’s okay to find strength and encouragement in your friends, your family, your favorite song or inspirational words. The most important thing is that you keep trying, keep persevering, and stay positive.
