“It’s been proven again and again. Hypochondriacs, people who are convinced that they are sick even though nothing is wrong with them, experience the exact symptoms of the actual illness. For them, the illness is just as real as if their bodies were ravaged by disease. It is also possible to make yourself ill through constant worry and fear of failure, because the mind constantly strives to turn into reality the things we think about most. Protect your mental health with the same care you give your physical body. Just as your body requires healthy, nourishing foods, and a balanced diet, so does your mind. Make sure you feed it plenty of positive thoughts.”
I read this quote this morning.
I’m a big fan of Napoleon Hill.
And this quote hit home for me.
It’s easy to let stress or fear control your mind.
Now, you can’t fill your head with delusions of grandeur, but you have to keep striving towards your goals. And it can get tough sometimes.
“Friends” may get jealous. They may criticize you, or drop a little insidious comment that makes you wonder if you are going about things all wrong. Plus the men in your life can also drag you down with unwanted drama.
Stuff like this puts you in a fog… and can make you wade through quicksand on your journey to your goals.
You have to stay positive.
You have to trust in yourself that you will get there.
If you think something is holding you back… if you are constantly worried about it… then… it’s holding you back. Your mind will start running with things as to why it’s holding you back.
Which means, you have to cut whatever “that” is, out of your life.
Heck, a friend of mine, her boyfriend is now telling her that she is constantly holding super high expectations over his head… because… get this… because she is “so ripped” she is placing expectations on him… to go to the gym and strive to take care of himself… and it’s not fair.
You will find people like this in your life all the time.
And you got to move on from it.
You MUST eliminate that crap.
Have faith in your journey.
Trust in yourself to get their.
My advice: CONTROL your environment.
Hold yourself to high expectations and high standards.
Fuel your purpose.
Fuel your goals.
Don’t let anyone stand in your way of them.
Do whatever it takes man, and trust yourself.
You got this.
