4. Pretend You Can.

Your subconscious does not knowrepparttar difference between pretending to be positive, and being positive. (And, it does not care!) Pretend, at least inrepparttar 124093 beginning, that you can do whatever you set your mind to. After a while you will find that you are doing exactly that.

5. Be Afraid And Do It Anyway.

If you wait untilrepparttar 124094 day fear disappears before you take a chance, you will be waiting for a long time. Fear never goes away. It only subsides when you move yourself forward despite not knowingrepparttar 124095 outcome. So, basically you are stuck with fear. (At least inrepparttar 124096 beginning.) It is up to you whether you will let it stop you or not.

6. Take The First Step.

All change starts withrepparttar 124097 first step. And, it does not have to be a big one. All that matters is that you are taking a step in a positive direction.

7. Reward Yourself For A Job Well Done.

It is not easy shifting your thoughts, especially when you have been thinkingrepparttar 124098 same way for a long time. You should be proud of yourself for trying something new. Not everyone looks at their life and puts actions in place so it can be better. Congratulations for being that person.

So, believe that you can today! You only have one life to live so it might as well be a life you love.

The Castaway

Written by Dave Cole

Continued from page 1

The Pacific Ocean wasrepparttar obstacle. His opponent was his own fears of overcoming that obstacle.

He made a plan to escape. The day arrived and Hanks set sail aboard a make shift, rinky dink raft of logs tied together with tree bark and video tape.

He met every adversityrepparttar 124092 South Pacific could throw at him. It wasn't easy, but finally,repparttar 124093 rescue came.

The movie portrayed a very intense drama. An analogy of what life is like for many people. Thousands of folks every day feel trapped in a nowhere life. They feel like their life is being wasted, like they are going nowhere, on a nowhere island with little hope of escape.

Every day these people trudge off to a boring and hopeless job that offers only an existence but no real sense of satisfaction in life as accomplishing anything.

These people know there is a better life out there, a life they so desire, yet it seems so far away. They are trapped on their own island of despair.

Held there, not byrepparttar 124094 island itself, but by their own fears of not being able to overcomerepparttar 124095 adversity and opposition that lies between them and their dreams.

A few do escape from that island. They arerepparttar 124096 ones who finally become sick and tired of living a wasted life, they arerepparttar 124097 ones who overcomerepparttar 124098 fear inside.

They start out from their island, not really knowing if they will make it or not. But they look that sea of difficulties square inrepparttar 124099 eye and say, inrepparttar 124100 unforgettable words of Admiral David Farragut, "Damnrepparttar 124101 torpedoes, full speed ahead."
