Wisdom from Erica Kosal

I have come to learn the power of belief in self.

I didn’t realize the significance or the true power of this until I was forced to face extreme stress stemming from my husband’s chronic illness. The message that I have only recently really heard is “belief becomes reality.”

It is absolutely true that your belief in something will come to be, if you have a definite, genuine conviction of it and the dedication to work toward it. Wishing something to occur is very different from an inner core knowledge that something will absolutely happen, acting as if it is inevitable, and putting yourself out there, laboring to make it reality.

During the midst of chaos and sadness, I have witnessed first-hand the power of true belief.

It can help you overcome the most impossible of challenges. True belief in your abilities and any subsequent hard work needed can alter your path in a purposeful way, in the direction you desire. Instead of stressing about the negatives of a situation, purposefully focus on the good of the situation, reframing your thoughts for calm and success, and you can accomplish seemingly unattainable outcomes.

As an additional bonus, it turns out that with such perseverance and determination, unexpected gifts appear on your path. Friends show extra care and kindness, strangers surprise you in nice ways, and a new view on life is realized….Continuereading at InspireMeToday.com.
