What you perceive is what you believe.
Your personal perception of reality is determined by the beliefs you hold. This does not necessarily make them real, except for the fact that you believe they are. Your beliefs create and dictate what your attitudes are. Your attitudes create and dictate how you respond—in other words, they dictate your feelings. And your feelings largely determine how you behave.
Start imagining your life the way you want it. Create a picture in your mind and think about that picture steadfastly all day long. Believe in it.
You don’t have to tell anybody. Have your own quiet confidence that you can make the picture in your mind come true.
You will start making different choices in line with your picture. You will take small steps in the right direction.
You’ll also encounter obstacles. Don’t let these obstacles stop you. If you hold your picture of the life you want steadfast in your mind, you will eventually create that life.
What have you got to lose? Close your eyes and start now.
You will become what you think about.
