In order to tap into your true potential, you have to let go of fear. The mind is a powerful tool because it allows you to create your own reality just through thoughtsspeakit and feelings. For example, the simply going back to a memory, you are able to trigger emotions and feelings that correlate with that memory, and with just one thought, you’re able to influence the mood or your day—whether it’s positive or negative. Going back to that moment, you start to think where this feeling arises and you can literally think yourself into a bad or good mood. This just proves that our mind is capable of so much more once we are able to master it. You are constantly creating your reality—subconsciously or consciously—through the frequencies you’re emitting. It’s all about how you respond to your thoughts that will determine what you will attract into your life. If you can master your mind, you are able to tap into your true potential/higher self and live life as an observer rather than someone who is simply responding to his environment.

Words have power, even the words that stay in your head.
So be mindful.

PSA: It is okay to be totally comfortable. You don’t always have to be striving for more, building towards a goal, or ticking off a to-do checklist. Life isn’t meant to always be lived in the constant pursuit of something else–if you’re feeling comfortable, even temporarily, cherish it. You’re not stagnating; you’re just living. @thenapministry […]
