‘Our doubts are our traitors '
said Shakespeare. Negative thoughts of poverty, sickness and limitations
separate you from your electricity. Your light is thus obscured
because you have disconnected yourself just like you would disconnect
an electric bulb with a flick of the switch. Has it ever occurred
to you that you have been a traitor to yourself all these years?
Every young man determined to enter the Indian film industry is
all set for a certain period of struggle. The 'struggle period'
is now firmly a part of journey in films. It is an accepted fact
so much so that the phrase 'struggle period' has itself entered
their vocabulary. They are convinced that they have to struggle
and so it is quite certain that they have to struggle. Why is it
that Dilip Kumar never struggled for Elvis Presley for that matter?
Or any one of these world-wide film personalities who have so suddenly
and so successfully shot to the top. They had never heard of the
phrase ' struggle period ‘. They never thought they would
have to struggle, so they never struggled. Whatever you think will
happen and is bound to happen. It is the Law. Your doubts can create
foreseen obstacles for you, just as strong positive thoughts can
propel you to the pinnacle of success.
It is a fact that our doubts and negative thoughts hold us back
from all that we want, so isn’t it better to believe ? You
lose nothing, and you gain a lot. Whatever you believe and mentally
create, you can have. If you think of poverty, then poverty is all
that you will get. It takes very little effort to think of riches.
You can dissolve or overcome virtually any obstacle in you path
by a strong belief.
You must be able to say 'no' to the things you do not want to happen.
Say ' I will have no more of this state of affairs from now on ‘.
Try it. You will be surprised at how fast your troubles will vanish.
When you decide to stop worrying and start believing, you give birth
to an immediate magnetic action that can work only for your good.
Never be afraid of 'they'. People are more afraid of what other
people will think than of anything else in the world. Do not be
afraid if you are laughed at. The greatest people in the world have
been laughed at. 'They' laughed at Marconi. Even his own father
laughed at Marconi. They laughed at Henry Ford when he built the
world's first motor car. Luckily for us, laughter never daunted
People have a baneful habit of laughing at people who dare to be
different than the common masses. Do not be afraid of any other
There is not, and never has been, a great individual who has not
been laughed at. Do not be discouraged. Great people believe in
a positive manner. All the ridicule in the world cannot stop them
from being great. Remember these powerful and inspiring words: I
can and I will.
A famous millionaire makes it a point to repeat them three times
every morning before he gets out of bed. Follow this example un-shakingly.
Most people are afraid of something, be it anxiety over money or
sickness or fear of losing someone's love or being alone and unwanted.
Rise triumphant over your doubts and fears. As said earlier, your
doubts can prove to be foreseen obstacles in everything you do.
They can be so powerful that they can set in motion the very things
that you fear. There is a famous saying: ' If you dread something,
it will happen ‘. Your life begins to go wrong the moment
you fear it will do so. To bring out the power within you, you must
never be afraid of anything or anybody. You have thought yourself
into doubt with your own mind it is entirely up to you to rid yourself
of that fear. Doubt is a negative mind. You must be positive if
you want to be rich and successful.
Very often, doubts begin to besiege you if you use your mind more
than your body. You generate doubt and fear if you think too much
and neglect action. Arrive at a happy balance. Lead a more active
life. Go for long walks, exercise, do yoga. Remember that saying,
“A healthy mind is a healthy body". Exercise is a positive
action. The very act of physical exertion fills you with a sense
of confidence. Haven’t you noticed how much more positive
you are when you begin your day with a bit of exercise?
Fear is all in the Mind. Fear is a figment of your own over active
imagination. If you advance boldly towards the object of our fear,
you will find that it will just melt away. Plunge boldly into that
which you fear. The only way to conquer fear is by meeting it face
Here are few negative phrases that you should delete entirely from
your vocabulary and promise yourself never to use them:
- I only I had money
- What will people say?
- Suppose something happens
- If only I had influence
- My stars are unlucky
- It was not in my destiny
- I was fated to go through a bad time
- If only I was in good health
Go forth with confidence. Remember that as long as a man goes to
battle he shall never lose. Never take no for an answer, never admit
defeat. Positive belief is the magic formula for success.........
