The Power of You -

—“Your focus creates your reality.”

My life pretty much revolves around this single saying, and everything else is planned in accordance with this phrase.

So what does this mean?

Gradually, as my awareness of the Self expanded and I came closer to the authenticity of the Self, I hit a realization that the quality of my life wasn’t determined by the situations, but my power to label them so.

By overloading yourself with self-made versions of reality and drowning yourself in the misery, you’re depriving yourself of the gorgeous life you deserve to live. You’re distracting your focus from what really matters, henceforth losing your grip on the fact that you truly have been made to win.

You have this profound genius within you, screaming to be unchained free from all the fears, insecurities, and all the dread you’ve suffocated it with.

How do you change the nature of your reality?

1. Stop running around in circles with the same mental distresses and chasing an illusionary solution that comforts you but isn’t beneficial. Cut off all the negative talk you have with yourself, because your personal story becomes your legacy.

2. Realize that every new day holds a tremendous potential to be the first day of a fulfilling life, gleaming with opportunities and peace. You make the choice.

3. Invest your time and energy into things that deeply matter to you. Recognize what stirs you from within and lose yourself in the pursuit of it, keeping the negative talk and self-doubts at bay.

You construct your own reality. Dedicate your attention, energy, and emotions to the things and people you look forward to having around. It’s as simple as that.
