Cut the cables

The energy you spend defending your limitations keeps those limitations solidly in place. But what if you put that energy into something else?

The effort you spend convincing others of your excuses, makes those excuses more real and more burdensome to you. Imagine, instead, simply letting them go.

Yes, of course, life is entirely unfair. Yes, of course, the circumstances and events of your life have you thoroughly tied down like sturdy, unyielding steel cables.

There is a way to cut those cables. For it is you who has put most of them in place.

Focus your mind, your energy, your spirit, your feelings and emotions on the most joyful and fulfilling scenario you can imagine. Suddenly and profoundly, your reality begins to change.

Put the energy of your spirit into giving color and texture and substance and palpable sensation to your most treasured dreams. That will surely make you free.

— Ralph Marston
