The Inner Struggle

I struggle. I struggle a lot. I struggle everyday. It is an inner struggle. An inner battle. I know you struggle. I know you struggle a lot. I know you struggle everyday. The inner struggle. The inner battle. No one is exempt from the struggle.

I have nothing to hide. I know who I am. I know what I am. I know my passion. My purpose. I know why I am alive today. I know my strengths. I know my weakness’. I know where I need to improve. I know my shortcomings. I know my failures. I know where I have missed the mark. I know that I and you, are imperfect, works of art in progress. Knowing all of this, allows me to know, you need to hear what I am saying. WE ALL STRUGGLE. WE ARE ALL GOING THROUGH AN INNER STRUGGLE TODAY. Each one of us have thousands of thoughts racing through our minds. Each day. Every day. Positive, negative, and indifferent thoughts. They attack us constantly. The thoughts are relentless. All of us struggle on some level controlling our thoughts. The most confident individuals on earth, struggle controlling their thoughts. The wealthiest individuals on earth, struggle controlling their thoughts. The greatest athletes in the world, struggle controlling their thoughts. All of us have insecurities. All of us have had life experiences that have caused us some kind of trauma. All of us have been embarrassed. Made fun of. Laughed at. At times, ridiculed. All of us struggle on some level with wondering what others think about us. All of us struggle on some level with comparing ourselves to others. All of us have jealousies. All of us have annoyances. All of us have prejudices. All of us have body image issues. Some of us have eating disorders. Some of us have severe addictions. All of us have, a lot of issues. With all of our issues, come thousands and thousands of thoughts. Thoughts that can control us. Thoughts that can create fear, anxiety, nervousness, and a host of other debilitating factors. Thoughts are powerful. Thoughts dictate our perception and reality. Our perception and reality of our surroundings, as well as ourselves. Thoughts create an inner struggle. The inner battle. Thoughts become reality. As a man or woman thinks, so they become. As a man or woman thinks, so those around them become.

I want you to know, wherever you are today in your life journey, whatever you are struggling with in this moment, whatever internal battle you are fighting in this moment, as you read this, please hear me, please understand, please grasp, please accept the fact, that you are beautiful. You are beautiful. You are beautiful. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. You are in progress. An artwork, a masterful, beautiful piece of art, in progress. You have gifts. You have talents. You have abilities. You have capabilities. You have opportunities that you have been given to you. You have a Creator that created you to love and to be loved. The struggle is intense. I know. The battle can be overwhelming. I know. The fears, the anxieties, the yearnings for things to be different can be nearly unbearable at times. I know. I’ve been there. I am there. I will continue to be here, in the struggle, in the battle, just as you are. We struggle together. We battle together. Your struggles may be different from mine, your battles may look different then mine, but you struggle, I struggle, we all struggle, we all battle from within. Lift up your eyes. Look around. See the beauty. The beauty within the struggle. The beauty within the battle. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. YOU WILL OVERCOME.

Overcoming Anxiety and Fear

We experience so many feelings and emotions throughout the day. We have approximately 60,000-80,000 thoughts in a twenty-four hour period. The majority of us deal each day with some kind of anxiety, depression, and fear. There is a lot that happens within our brain, within our mind. Personally, I struggle daily with controlling my mind, controlling my thoughts, and controlling my anxieties. From the time I was a tween, I have had a conscious fight, a conscious battle with my mind. With my feelings, emotions, anxieties, and fears. At times when I was younger, I could barely bring myself to get out of bed because the anxiety and fear of the day was so great. There seemed to be an overbearing weight that was upon my shoulders. Recently, over the last several years, I have learned that I have control, full control over my mind. I have control over my thoughts, my anxieties, my fears, and the outcome of my days. I cannot control others. I cannot control the weather, or any other outside variable. But I can control what goes on inside of me. I can control my mind. Now, the feelings, emotions, anxieties, and fears are still present in my life. They always will be. They are a part of me until the day I die. But I do not have to be a slave to these feelings, emotion, anxieties, and fears. I do not have to allow these to control my life, how I live, how I serve, how I love. How have I come to the point in my life where I no longer suffer from my anxieties and fears? I have learned that I have to go against the anxiety, the fear, the feelings, and the emotions. I have to attack them. Every day. Each day, head on, aggressively, relentlessly. When my feelings and emotions are strong, when the anxiety and fear is trying to suffocate me and hold me back, I have to decide I am not going to be a victim. I am not going to give in, I am not going to allow what is happing inside of me to effect what I want to accomplish that day, week, month, or year. I AM IN CONTROL! My feelings, emotions, anxieties, and fears ARE NOT IN CONTROL! I cannot waste my life. I cannot waste what has been given to me to give. I cannot waste the opportunities I have been presented! I have to live my life fully! I have to be the man I know I am to be! I have to be a leader! I have to be an example! I have to be someone to follow! I must overcome. I must be the master of my mind, all day, every day. I must be stronger then the weakness that wants to win. I accept that I am not perfect. I will never be perfect this side of heaven. Perfection is a myth. But I can work harder, work smarter, learn more, apply more, grow more, mature more, serve more, give more. I can’t stop. I won’t stop. My feelings, emotions, anxieties, and fears have no power over me. They have lost. I have won. The fight, the battle continues. The beautiful struggle of life.

Detach

Remove yourself from your feelings and emotions.  Step outside of yourself in order to think, see, and hear clearly.  Too often, we are lost in ourselves.  Lost in our feelings, emotions, anxieties, fears, and sorrows.  Too often, we can’t get past the inner self, in order to accomplish the tasks to reach our full potential.  We need to detach.  We need to learn to detach.  We need to learn to let go.  We need to understand that mistakes, mishaps, and failure are all a part of the life process.  Never to be avoided, but mistakes, mishaps, and failure should be expected, accepted, and learned from.  You are not perfect.  You will never be perfect in this life.  Perfection and the pursuit of, is myth.  Unattainable.  Do not strive for perfection.  Rather, strive for growth.  Strive for maturity.  Strive to become a better you, TODAY!
