"Our doubts are traitors, Shakespeare says, "and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt."
The writer as a young man schooled in the schooled of hard knocks, I often learned and realized that the greatest obstacle to a man's success in life is not due to below average IQ but because of lack of will to start his plan and a lack of courage to do it till the end as well as a lack of faith and believe in his power.
Dear reader if you want to accomplish something in this world or to become the ideal person you dreamed of yourself, condition and teach your mind to think positively. Eliminate self - pity, worries, doubts, and fears in your life, for these can only create a hellish turmoil and makes your mind to function unproductively.
Don't be like a mouse that dwelt near the abode of a great magician was kept in such constant distress by its fear of a cat, that the great magician, taking pity on it, turned it into a cat itself. Immediately it began to suffer from its fear of a dog, so the magician turned it into a dog. Then it began to suffer from fear of a tiger. Then the magician therefore turned it into a tiger. Then it began to suffer from fear of a hunter, and the magician said in disgust: "Be a mouse again. As you have only the heart of a mouse, it is impossible to help you by giving you the body of a nobler animal."
Again, don't be like a mouse! You are a special and unique individual. The loving God gives you the mind, the ears, the eyes, the mouth, the hands, and the feet to help you to transform your plans into reality. Therefore stop thinking negatively! Be good to your self. Choose to be a captain of your soul today, and surely, the world will make a way for you!
Remember that the "Kingdom of God is within you"! So continue on conditioning your mind to think positively, to have faith and believe in yourself!
But if times come and you will fall back into negative thoughts such as fear, worries, and self-pity, remind yourself again and again with this word: "Take charge of your thoughts, so you can do what you will, will."
Use that affirmation every time you will succumb by inferiority complex, so the feeling of insecurity and fear will banish from you.
Finally, remember that God helps those who help themselves!
Good luck to your journey in life!
