“Believe in life! Always human beings will live and progress to greater, broader, and fuller life.” W. E. B. Du Bois
Life is really a choice. The question you and I have to answer each and every day is if we’ll choose to live our life or pass it by. The answer you give to that question each day determines if you’ll have a successful day, an average day or a super unfulfilling day. You can’t answer for tomorrow today and you can’t answer for yesterday tomorrow. You have to decide for each day that day. If we choose to follow Du Bois’ view of life we’ll never be bored, we’ll always be improving and expanding and life will be ours in abundance.
When we stop believing that life can be improved, that we have potential, that we can be loved, and that we can have our desires, we grind our ability to fully experience life to a halt. You can’t have an abundantly successful life if you don’t fully live your life. Life was meant to be lived, not watched as it passed by.
What if the difference between the life you have now and the life you want is just a belief? What if all it took to dramatically improve your life was to believe that you can be more? I believe that it does start there, with our beliefs and our attitudes. If you believe you’re trash that’s the way you’ll deal with everything in your life and how people will treat you. If you believe you’re an amazing person with lots of potential and passion, people will meet you there too. You have an incredible ability to transform your life experience: and it starts with your attitude.
When you put up the rules that restrict lessons from being too simple, too basic and too straightforward you limit your life potential. Not everything has to happen at the speed of light, sometimes it’s the simple things that can make the biggest differences. Will you believe in yourself today?
