Daily Wisdom 16

‘Nothing in the world can trouble you more than your own thoughts.’


Guys, stop thinking that you’re not good at this, or you’re rubbish at that – just stop! I see it everywhere, people trying to live up to another person’s success, and they’re uncomfortable with doing the things that they don’t like, but they only do it for one thing. Success. Another thing pals, is that everyone, even me sometimes, we think that we’re rubbish. We think we’re useless. Well of course we’re useless, duh people, we’re trying to live up to some other person’s success, I mean, your not even that person, so how do you expect to think like them, do everything like them when you’re not even them. The worst enemy you can ever have is your own thoughts. That makes you shy. Timid. And easy to prey on. Stop telling yourself that you’re useless. Do what you love, then ask yourself, am I useless? Stop doubting yourself, achieve goals, then ask yourself, was that rubbish? If you’re always doubtful about every step you take, how do you expect to get to the end of the path? How do you expect to succeed? A person who thinks that they’re good for nothing either needs to get some help or sort it out fast. Because your mind, your thoughts, are the worst enemy you could possibly imagine.

  2. This is so true! One of my favorite pieces of advice is don’t ever worry about being the next Stephan king or Victoria Swab, think about being the first you. That’s what’ll bring out the most greatness in your self.

  3. I think Rocky Balboa put it best,

    “It’s you against you”

    People like to compare themselves to others because we grew up with it in our school system.

    Who got the best grades

    Who was the best at sports

    But when we grow up we have our own goals outside of good grades

    So how can you compare yourself to someone that’s on a different road?

    “Don’t let someone else’s clock dictate your own.”

  4. Mind is the greatest weapon we’ve! But our thoughts can turn towards us, be our enemy and destroy us! So I think overthinking, doubting ourselves is the problem… So we ought to be confident….. And I think everyone’s has an important role to play in life!! Everyone has their own importance.. It’s just that we sometimes look at the close door or darkness… We just need to look at the brighter side!!!

  5. I am a victim of my own mind and I couldn’t have read this post at any better times than now. With the lockdown this particular week has been harder and I have felt not good enough and useless and unattractive and so forth.
    Thank you for the wisdom Phoenix, I needed it πŸ™πŸΏπŸ˜Š
