“I think hell is something you carry around with you. Not somewhere you go.” – Neil Gaiman
It does not matter what happens to us, but how we interpret and how we react to whatever it is that happens to us.
It is not necessarily our abilities that determine our success, but rather our beliefs about those abilities. How much faith we have, how much courage. How much we love ourselves.
In this hyper-logical world we live in, this game of chess, it’s easy to forget about the importance of having the right kind of mindset. It feels like a race, to own, to have, to pursue, to be busy, busy, busy, but the truth is that our minds can create happiness whenever we want to.
True power lies in the ability to do what you want, when you want, how you want.
True power lies in your ability to control your emotions, your thoughts, your words, your actions.
You can be reactive or proactive.
You can be master or slave.
A victim or a hero.
The choice is up to you.
Heaven and hell. Both reside with you.
This is the battle. The one true battle that you must fight over and over again.
You must be strong and fight this battle at the best of your abilities, because if you don’t know your worth, others will be glad to tell you, but guess how much you’ll be worth according to them?
Not much. Maybe nothing at all.
