When we open our minds, we illuminate our inner selves.
We give ourselves the chance to see what’s available to us. And what we see is ALWAYS available to us; it's within.
We tend to look to outside factors to solve our problems, see us through the rough times, give us insights. Most of the resources we need are within.
With courage, confidence, and a quiet determination, we may reveal to ourselves our abilities, personal resources and talents.
This is why the best way of learning is by doing.
How many times have you read instructions, followed them to a 'T', only to find that the practicality is different from the theory? The user is different, the circumstances vary, the conditions vary. There are too many variables for the manual to be precise; but the principle remains.
But by doing, attempting, with a will, with a modest but sound belief in our personal ability, and with courage, we overcome many seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
Then we can lever that courage, build on the belief, and get on with life and the challenges it brings, with simple, persistent action.
