"I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence, but it comes from within. It is there all the time."
Ever have the feeling that you're in over your head; maybe even WAY OVER YOUR HEAD? I'm talking about that queasy uneasiness you feel when things start to unravel. Sometimes it feels like there is just too much going on or too much on your plate. And sometimes it seems like there is just too much to do, too much to take care of, too much of just about everything. And it doesn't take long for too much of too much to become too much to handle.
Feeling overwhelmed and overmatched, you start believing that you're not up to the task. As your confidence wobbles and fear and doubt come rushing in, you begin to feel beaten, almost broken. Shaken and unsure of yourself, your problems now seem too big, too imposing, too just about everything. As a deflating, defeating sensation slowly sinks in, you start questioning whether you really have what it takes to get the job done.
And make no mistake about it, that's one rotten feeling.
"Before you can win, you have to believe you are worthy."
There is not one of us who has not felt those same feelings of self doubt at some point in our lives. I don't care how much we have or how much we have accomplished; we have all walked in those same uncomfortable shoes. The richest, most successful people on earth and the poorest folks around share a common bond; they have all wondered if they're good enough to cut the mustard, good enough to make the grade.
The real winners get it; they understand that they are going to experience some low points in life. They know they are going to encounter some difficult problems and tough challenges along the way. And they know their confidence is going to be severely tested every now and again.
So they learn to roll with life's punches. They quickly bounce back whenever they get bounced around. While they may take a licking, they keep on ticking. When the going gets rough, they simply look inside to find the answers they seek.
And so should you.
"God's promises are like the stars; the darker the night the brighter they shine."
You can quickly quiet feelings of overwhelm by looking within. Deep down where it counts, you have what it takes. You have been blessed with everything you'll ever need to get anywhere you have ever dreamed of going. In fact, you have more than enough. There's a power-packed supercharger down in your heart and soul that's capable of taking anywhere your heart desires. It's there; and always has been.
How do I know you have what it takes? Because God says you do - and that is plenty good enough for me.
God has blessed you with toughness and tenacity, more than enough to outlast life's roughest moments. God has graced you strength and resolve, more than enough to power through your times of overwhelm and insecurity. And God has bestowed within you a wide array of unique talents and gifts, more than enough to make your most cherished dreams come true.
As a matter of fact, you have more than enough of everything you'll ever need.
"Your life is your own. You mold it. You make it."
When ominous storm clouds form on the horizon and the sky turns darker than dark, just remember to look within. When you start veering off course and doubt and uncertainty start ruling the day, just remember to look within. By looking within each and every time trouble comes calling, you're going to find just what the doctor ordered.
Deep inside you burns an indefatigable flame; a fire that never goes out, a fire that never lets you down. A fire that can take you anywhere you want to go.
By looking within, you will uncover the answers you seek, unlock the strength you need and unleash the willpower you desperately desire. It's right there, right there waiting for you. Everything you could ever ask for, anything you could ever need. It's there, right there.
You just need to look. Within.
The Bottom Line: Look within and you will stop doing without.
