point in my life I can confidently say that Iím heading in the right
direction. For a while I was very confused and unsure about what
the future had in store for me. But after stumbling across an
essential approach to living, I now realize how endless lifeís
possibilities truly are. Many have heard about the power of a
positive mindset, but few realize that extent of its truth. For too
often we create walls and boundaries in our own minds that hold us
back from ever reaching our fullest potential.
Why donít I go to a great college? Why donít I make it BIG out in
the real world? Why canít I be truly happy in life? We canít see
or touch these walls but indeed they are there impacting every
aspect of our life. Whatís important to realize is that they only
exist if we let them exist. Itís all about your mindset!
The day I realized this was truly a turning point for me. I had
just come back from a RI Student Council leadership conference, and
was inspired by all the amazing things I learned. Then I started
thinking about our own student council and how much it was lacking.
I thought about my plans of running for parliamentarian, with the
only reason being that I would surely run unopposed. It wouldnít be
the greatest job but I wanted to get involved as much as I could.
Thatís when it hit me! Why not run for president? Sure I would
probably have to run against someone else but I could definitely do
it if I worked hard enough! It was at that moment when I finally
broke down all the walls in my mind and found a sense of clarity.
If itís what I really want, then why not go for it? Nothing can
stop you from achieving greatness but yourself. Step outside the
box and start seeing things from your own perspective. As the
saying goes, ďDonít go with the flowÖ..You are the flow!Ē
