The world is your oyster. You have to swim around in the darkness before you stumble upon it. You have to believe in your power to break it open. You have to have faith that you’ll find something inside. But the world is yours – there’s so much possibility, opportunity, potential, choice. Do whatever it takes to create a life you want. Don’t let anything hold you back, especially yourself.
To be rich is often synonymous with having a great deal of money. But we can create riches beyond money and possessions from within. We can be rich in love, friendship, family. We can be rich in knowledge, ideas, experience. And when we realise that richness often doesn’t come from money or what money can buy, we will also be rich in happiness. It’s all within us already. Don’t miss out.
Allow yourself to wish for what you want. It may seem out of reach, but you are more than capable of pulling it down from the sky. Don’t keep telling yourself you won’t make it. Don’t keep telling yourself you don’t deserve it. We can only have the life we want if we dare to go for it, if we believe we can do it, and if we persevere. Stop holding yourself back. The world won’t hand it to you.
Happiness takes work. We find it in accomplishments, in relationships, in dreams. And they take work. But we have to remember to sometimes stop, wherever we are, and take in that moment to be happy. There’s so much to be happy about right in front of us too, whether we’re at the bottom of the mountain, in the middle of a tightrope, or at the finish line. Don’t forget to be happy during your pursuit to happiness too. Otherwise, can we ever be happy at all?
The odds might be high, the stakes might be great, the road might be long, but you can do it. You have so much potential, so much strength and so much passion that you can do anything. The only walls are those in your mind. If you believe you can, you will. Yes, you can. Yes, you will.
