Mind over Matter: There is absolutely NOTHING you can't accomplish! Right?

Everyone loves to win. Winning or accomplishing something that you set your mind particularly on creates an adrenaline rush; the greatest satisfaction. Of course, there is a such thing as failure; by definition of the word. I choose to think "outside the box" when it comes to failure. Be mindful of your failures, but don't look at the deragatory sense of the word. If not for failure, we would not hold so dear that wonderful adrenline rush that we get from the feeling of accomplishment. Failures are only the lessons in life that cause certain memories to be imprinted in our minds; lessons that we learn and never forget. Failure is how we learn what NOT to do, in order to get an accomplished result. Failure encourages us to look at things from a different angle. If you have failed at something, you must "try, try again," as someone once said.Set your mind to it and you can do it! See how your life will improve: mind, body, and soul. I am dedicated to changing my mindset, starting today and going forward. Note: (The history behind the discussion) I've gone through many years of depression. I have decided to take matters into my own hands, and take charge of the situation.

Hi NappyRooted, Congratulations on taking things into tour own hands. There is very little that a determined person can't accomplish as history can show us. Do not let others discouraged you as some will likely try. Remember that you are the only one who can make things happen for you. Go for it. Blessings.

Thanks for the kind words and encouragement Pose123. This is very therapeutic for me, and I hope that I can help others by speaking on this subject. Maybe someone else needs to hear this. Sincerely, NappyRooted.

I believe this is true... to some extent... the power of mind is indeed very strong, it can conceive great things, so great that even us did not even think it can be possible... but there are people who made everything possible - and they accomplished whatever they have planned, and thought of. This is because they did not stop at thinking. Whatever they thought of, they worked on it, they really worked hard for it and so they achieved.

The way to beat depression is to quit focusing on your problem, to shift focus to others' problems that you can help solve. Big Lesson: "It's not about me!" (say that for yourself) but a second, more-important lesson is that it's not about 'what it's not about' ('what it's not about' is only useful to keep you away from 'trying to make it about 'that'.') I could tell you it's about one of any number of things--Love, happy marriage, raising good children, glorifying the Flying Spaghetti, etc.--but that won't make it true. What DOES make it true is to share it (unspoken) with at least one other person and to know that they know it as well.
