Believe in Yourself

Perhaps one of the worst injustice you can ever do to yourself is to continously doubt your capacity and your potentials. Many of us have heard it times without number that “Whatever your mind can CONCEIVE and BELIEVE, It can ACHIEVE.” And to most people, this is just a Motivational Jargon. But whether you like it or not, it holds true nonetheless.
There are TWO personalities whose opinion about you matter most in life and once these two are in your favour, NOTHING (or No One) will be able to stop you.
The first Personality is God. That means His opinion about you is CRITICALLY FUNDAMENTAL. But we need not worry about this one because God’s opinion about you (and me) is one of absolute positivity. He says you’re ‘More than a Conqueror’, a king and a priest, and one who has ALL of His ability at your disposal.
The second personality whose opinion matters just as much (which you should be more concerned about) is YOU. What you believe about yourself sets the tone for how your life will unfold. Whether you will succeed or fail, prosper or not… will boil down to what you truly believe about yourself. So start developing some confidence in your innate abilities and see how your life begins to change.
It is commonly said that ‘One with God is a majority’. But I dare say that ‘One with God is a complete #Totality.’
Remember that God made you in His image and after His Likeness. And He is no Failure – Neither did He make (you) a failure. So Believe in God and believe in Yourself.

#You_will_succeed.
God bless you Abundantly.

If Only

Life I’ve seen is full of good, just as much as there’s evil.
It also is full of Light, just as much as there’s darkness.
Sometimes, things go so ugly as though it’s of the devil.
Such times, I often wonder with a heart in restlessness.

If only there were no wars, we would always live in peace.
With love and joy in the air, we would live in unity.
As friends in bond we would be, like couples in endless bliss.
As fights and strife will be not, a life of tranquillity.

If only there were no death, we would never have to die.
Forever we all would live, with loved ones in company.
Tears of mourning, we won’t cry, neither would we say goodbye.
Family and friends shall be, just so much and so many.

If only there were no wrongs, then we would always be right.
We would never make mistakes, nothing to be sorry for.
There would be no punishment, be it heavyweight or light.
Things well would always be done, and good news heard would be more.

If only there were no hate, we would always dwell in love.
If only there were no lies, we would always know the truth.
If only there were no lack, there would be less problems to solve.
If only things were different, perhaps our pains it would soothe

But in this do I find rest, all things in life have their place.
Unwanted as they may seem, they still try to find some use.
For perhaps if death was not, Life might be an endless race.
Where all men would run and run, with nothing to gain or lose.
