You are more powerful than you could imagine. Your true power lies in your ability to choose. You can choose whatever you would like. You do not have to believe the negative reports or opinions given by your family or friends. You don’t even have to believe the doctor’s report. I know a man whose son was born with no ears or even holes by which he could possibly hear. The father refused to believe the doctor’s word that his son would never hear. The father kept believing his son would hear and that this ailment would benefit his son. The father was Napoleon Hill, author of “Think and Grow Rich”. He writes about this experience in his book in the chapter on faith. Your power truly lies in your choice of what to think, what to believe and what to do. Yes, you are God’s highest form of creation and you possess deep reservoirs of talent and ability. Don’t short change yourself. You possess the ultimate power! You decide for yourself. Don’t allow someone else decide for you. You are totally responsible for your own life. No one can cause you to think anything except yourself. You have the ability to accept or reject whatever you see or hear. Your senses provide feedback from your outside world and that feedback is not etched in stone. You can reject it and hold fast to your thought or desire. You do not have to believe you are not rich because of your bank balance. You have within you unlimited resources and untapped potential. You can achieve whatever you set your mind to do. You can choose to think what you want. However…
The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.
