Have you ever felt like you’re not good enough? Or that everything you do and touch just seems to turn out all wrong? What about the times when everything was right and no matter what you touched turned to gold?
I have felt like a failed lab experiment on numerous occasions. I would make one little mistake, and my world would spiral out of control into a chaotic flurry of uncontrolled emotions. Anxiety made me worry too much about the next move I needed to make and depression paralyzed me from making any decision at all. It was unbearable, and it made me feel like a complete failure in life.
Through clandestine meetings of others who once felt the same way, I have learned that it was my thoughts that was controlling my life. Negative thinking exuded from my pores and others felt about me as I had felt about myself. By changing my thoughts to prettier things and positive words, I was able to succeed in various aspects of my life. The little mistakes were easier to handle, and those around me began to take notice!
Often times, when we are at our lowest we can only seem to focus on negative thoughts and everything that has gone wrong in our life. We begin to resent others of what we feel is their high expectations of us, and we resent ourselves for our miserable failures; focusing only on what we did wrong. When in truth, we are merely imperfect human beings capable of succeeding at so much more.
What we think directly impacts our lives and those around us. Our perception on life, and the people in it, changes with our mood. Why not turn around your perception and create something positive out of what seems like a crushing world around you? If you desire to be the golden child who excels beyond expectations, change your thoughts right now! And, you will begin to notice a change in others around you, as well. Soon, your positive thinking will master all of your imperfections, and you will be doing everything right once again.
