Everyday a thief runs through your mind and robs you of your potential. You know the thief is there and you can hear him as tells you stories, stories that suggest that you are wrong, broken or incapable of doing what you want to do.
What is the thief taking from you? The thief is taking your life, your dreams and desires and telling you that it can’t be done and you believe the thief. When worry enters your mind it is the voice of the thief and the thief is taking that energy that would have been productive and creative and removing it from you. It means that the time you spent worrying about something that you lost the opportunity to do something, to make something, to be something, to feel something good and instead you felt drained.
Now you could tell the thief to take a hike but it is likely the thief is in control of those negative thoughts. What is stealing your dreams?
What thoughts do you have that are robbing you of the energy you need to do the things you really want to do?
Some people are so taken up with the thief they don’t even question the voice in the mind that is telling them to “be quiet”, “to take it easy”, “ go the easy way”, or “you can’t do that, be serious”. If you’ve heard those voices and just let it slide you might be too close to the thief.
Listen to the words of the thief and see if the words are true. Even if they are, are they your words or the thief’s words?
What do you want to do to get your life back?
