Consider Yourself Successful
Decide to consider yourself successful right now, then build on that each day.
~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian
We may be in the habit of telling stories about ourselves that aren't true—stories that say we are not good enough. Those stories may have started in our childhood. We heard those stories for many reasons. Sometimes it was from our religious, societal or family upbringing. Often we heard that we need to be humble. That version of humility said that we were less than... which is not true. The truth of our being is that we are everything that we want to be already. All we have to do is realize and accept that truth. Accepting that truth frees us to be the person we are meant to be, to do the work we are meant to do. Accepting that truth serves the greater good. Our meditation practice frees our mind to see the truth. Affirm that truth and build on it.
