In order to attain great, first your mind should be great, because all is mind and it all starts from mind; therefore, for a mind to be truly great, such shall be cleansed from the examples of a mediocre society and free from the chains of other people’s opinions and beliefs. This mind must be unique in EVERY way; no fear shall be validated and fed, for this mind dwells in self-love and in its own purpose, and so that is all it knows.
You have to be yourself and create your own values in your own path, and that way you are the master of yourself, of your inner strength because you don’t depend on society for anything now; subsequently, due to this inner strength you have created within yourself, people can say whatever they want, economies will collapse, challenges will arise, but you will remain strong and resilient to all.
“One of the greatest attacks of the enemy is to make you busy, to make you hurried, to make you noisy, to make you distracted, to fill the people of God and the Church of God with so much noise and activity that there is no room for prayer. There is no room for being alone with God. There is no room for silence. There is no room for meditation.” ~ Paul Washer; American Christian evangelist.
In moments of great challenges is when we must trust ourselves the most and accept whatever is, and stop allowing the activities and the noise, the opinions and the beliefs of others to affect us. When it comes to energy vampires, even though most ignorant people would not agree with this, it is about our minds and nothing else; therefore, absolutely no one can take away your peace and love if you don’t allow them, if you do not give in to what they say, to anger and to the fear and negativity they spread around you.
“Sometimes, being different feels a lot like being alone. But with that being said, being true to that and being true to my standards and my way of doing things in my art and my music, everything that has made me feel very different, in the end, it has made me the happiest.” ~ Lindsey Stirling; music artist.
So, appreciate those times when you can be by yourself and recharge, by knowing yourself, your thoughts and emotions; thus, you can grow in self-confidence and all self-love, so nothing can affect you and your mind becomes wiser to affront the turmoils of life. Be perseverant and true to yourself, and don’t let the mediocrity of the masses attack and poison your integrity and your determination.
Study Lao Tzu’s wisdom in this: “I have three treasures. Guard and keep them. The first is deep love. The second is frugality. And the third is not to dare to be ahead of the world. Because of deep love, one is courageous. Because of frugality, one is generous. Because of not daring to be ahead of the world, one becomes the leader of the world.”
