How you see things affects every decision in life.   I originally posted this in November of 2016 with a very little text.  With the cleaning up my blog I have been revisiting old articles.   I guess in many ways I post things too quickly.   Then again, perhaps the revisit gives me a chance to really see the growth I have made since the original posting.
Do you believe you can do it? – Training
Will it work? – Education
Is it worth it? – Consequences
How you see things allows you set or break boundaries in your life.   Boundaries are a good thing for people.   But what happens when you go beyond them?   How do you make them happen with self-motivation?   This is a great talk about empowerment.

Training – Do you believe you can do it?

Look at your belief systems for a minute.   What your parents, friends and teachers have instilled in you.   Sometimes their fears of failure are imprinted upon you.   To change and to grow you must transcend that training.   Take a moment and review where you are and where you want to go.   You have to believe that you can get there or you are defeated from the start.

Education – Will it Work?

I believe that today I am better place to understand this question than when I first saw this talk.   Do you really believe that what you are wanting to do will be successful.   This is interesting — “do you want your kids to get sex education or sex training. ”

Consequences – Is it worth it?

This is about being self-motivated and empowerment.   This is about choices, sometimes it means that you need to seek success instead of avoiding fear.   It all comes back to how you view the opportunities in front of you.

If you can answer yes to those three questions, you are likely to be successful.   It is how you talk to yourself and others that will be part of how happy you are.   But don’t forget that you are part of a greater community and that we are in this together.
