Really, winter is almost done. And so, if it was going to happen, it should have been weeks ago.
Well anyway, the thaw is already underway. No big surprise.
But it set me thinking…
There are times in our own lives when everything freezes over. All there is to do is either sit it out, or get out there and start shoveling.
For myself, I prefer to sit it out for the most part. Then again, there are times when there is no choice but to get to work.
A thought came to me…
When the ground is covered with snow, maybe a foot or more deep, and the sky is overcast, it can often seem like this is how things really are. It can seem like there is nothing else.
Now, in the case of snow, you KNOW that that is not true! You know for a fact that someday soon, the sun will shine on through and it will all go away. You know that under the snow, no matter how deep it may be, there is solid ground. The tree branches aren’t white: they are either green with foliage or brown awaiting Spring.
Yes, that may be so obvious. We would laugh if someone tried to persuade us otherwise. But here’s the thing…
Do you know that about your own life? About your own thoughts? About your future?…
Often, it can seem that these are covered in snow, in the depths of winter. And the thaw will never come. You can make it into your ongoing reality. And, with a dreadful certainty, it can soon become a self-fulfilling prophecy. The way things “really are”!
However, it never has to be this way. You can remember that the present is always a reflection of the past. Moreover, what you do now sets the future into motion.
That can be a hard thing to recall at times when you are being assailed from all directions. That happens to all of us too. There are no exceptions.
Yet, the fact is that you DO have greatness within you. You can make the change. In fact, it is only you who can do it, nobody else. We may look outside of ourselves but really, the power is within.
That’s why I put together a resource entitled Your Inner Greatness. It’s a system for unlocking your inner potential. It’s all about seeing the greatness in yourself and setting the doubts and beliefs that undermine you to rest.
If you’ve ever felt that winter will never pass, that your life is forever snowbound, then you need to awaken to Your Inner Greatness.
Because the fact is that tomorrow, the sun WILL shine. Yes, even for you.
