"We often confuse our value
with our circumstance."
-- Dr. Steve Maraboli
People may say things to others, but more likely to themselves, such as, "I'm too fat!" Or if not that blatant, "I'm overweight," or things like, "I'm poor or I'm broke, or I can't afford that," or "my job sucks," "I hate this, or that." But, none of those things are us. We are not our circumstance or our condition. When we think we are our circumstance, we are often powerless to change because we feel like a victim, that this thing has landed on me and I don't know what to do.
I think the first step is to realize, and celebrate once we realize, that we are not our circumstance. We are independent of it. It may have a current affect on things in our lives, but it is not us. We are the powerful ones, not our circumstance.
In fact, circumstances can be downright inspirational once we realize that we are independent of them. It can help us to get moving and make changes so that our circumstances will be as we want them to be. Broke is a temporary condition, and poor is a mindset. Overweight is a temporary condition, fat is a mindset. We always get to choose and we always have power over all of our circumstance. Even if we can't immediately change the actual circumstance, we absolutely can change how we see it and what we think about it.
That's All The Power We Need.
