There are 3 reasons why you are “stuck” in your life and it is not because one of your parents cursed you or even less because you did not wash the body. The truth is that:
“You never took the time to actually sit down and think about what you want to do with your life. Not what you want to do today or in six months but in 10-20 years, what you want your life to look like, how you see yourself retiring;
“You have neither the courage nor the patience to ask God what you really want in your life. You do not believe in the efficacy of prayer and often you do not even pray for your future or at least your prayers concerning your future are vague;
– You are in fact distracted from following the lives of others rather than concentrating on your own life;
Why do some people succeed in life, why others fail? Why all seems to succeed to some while others “galley”? Everything is just a matter of focus. The world in which we live has a lot of distraction and if you want to live happily, you must first live your life, not that of others because it is really when you start living the lives of others that you no longer advances in your life.
To get out of the blockage in which you live, you must first get rid of distraction, all the elements that keep you from thinking, thinking and dreaming about your future:
– Sport / Music, etc …: unless you dream of becoming a sports star, your only idol must be yourself and not a Cristiano Ronaldo or a Lionel Messi. Ronaldo himself said in an interview that he was his only idol. It is the same with Zidane. And yet, you spend hours watching their matches and you have a poster of your favorite star on the wall of your room. You give a lot of energy to athletes or artists who do not even know you and do not share your life. It is your energy that makes them stronger and it is for them that you pray without realizing it instead of praying for yourself.
– TV series: telenovellas that you watch or other American series cause you to waste a lot of time in your life and block “literally” your brain or any energy process that can make you evolve. Sometimes even after seeing a Brazilian series you find yourself spending an hour of discussion with friends or members of your family to talk about the behavior of this or that actress.
– Porn Movies: Porn movies are very dangerous not only spiritually but also energetically. You really create bad luck by watching these films and you deprive yourself of a beneficial energy to build your future. In general, any activity that is not morally correct affects your energy, but more so quickly those activities where you sin against your own body. When you unburden your seed by exciting yourself on a star of a film of this kind, it is a very great energy that you send in the void. You feel yourself a great exhaustion that can last up to 2 days afterwards.
– The denigrations: Spending time talking badly about other people behind their back can get you a cunning pleasure but the truth is that talking badly about people is as harmful as smoking from a spiritual point of view. Every bad word that comes out of your mouth is like a venom for your mind and keeps you from talking about yourself, your future or thinking about yourself. Even discussions about politicians or other public figures that are not part of your life are a waste of time from an energy point of view unless you do politics yourself you do not need to talk about the lives of politicians or other personalities.
– Too much Social networking: on Facebook, people show their lives in the best way, giving you the impression that they have a good life but the truth is that if you are so happy, do you need to look for moral support on the Internet ? If you’re going to put a new status on Facebook every day or show photos of yourself all goes well, it’s that maybe you can not find the social, personal and family support you need . In any case, spending time reading other people’s status or updating their status on Facebook is a great waste of time and energy that could be used to better wisdom. YouTube or any other social network is no better.
Assuming that you have managed to get out of the distractions of life, the next step you have to make to move forward in your life is to plan your life. When you were little, your parents often asked you, “What do you want to become when you grow up?” This little phrase has helped you become what you are today in a certain way but you must not stop asking yourself this question until the end of your days. You have to be more specific. In 10 years, 20 years, when you’re going to retire, what kind of life would you like to lead? What salary would you like to earn? What salary would you like to make? What kind of car would you like to have? What kind of woman, husband would you like to have? What would you like to do with your children and how would you like to raise them?
In Matthew 7 Jesus says, “Ask, and they shall give you; seek, and you will find; knock, and they shall open to you. 8, For whosoever asketh receives, he that seeketh findeth, and is opened unto him that striketh. 9 Which of you shall give a stone to his son, if he ask of him bread? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11For then, wicked as you are, you know how to give good things to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask them. “
What Jesus means is that prayer is really effective and God will provide for anyone who asks for help. Some people have a weak faith and need to pray longer for their requests to come true, others have a very great faith and for them the world seems to bend to their will and they seem to be every day under the blessing of Providence. My friend, whatever may be your faith, you must know that if you pray long enough for something noble, God will help you to realize it.
The last thing you need to do is prayer.
You have to pray to become what you want to be in life. Of course, you must have lofty goals in life, not goals of success to dominate and crush others but you will have to pray for it, pray constantly and stay focused.
My friend, let me give you this method to pray effectively and to get out of all the blockages you know in your life:
– Take off all the posters that there are on your wall and stop watching telenovellas and other movies;
– Take a sheet of white paper instead and on this sheet write what you want to become later in life. Do you want to be a doctor or an engineer? Do a photomontage of you as a doctor or engineer. Glue stickers of the companies in which you would like to work;
– Then have the courage to dream. Dreams of how you are going to achieve that goal you have given yourself. Dreams from where you have to study to have the job you want, dreams of the academic results you need to succeed in getting a scholarship. Dreams of how you will help the people around you once you have succeeded in life;
– Finally pray. Priests every day to make your dream come true. Pries unrelentingly until your dream becomes a reality.
My friend, stop idealizing Cristiano Ronaldo or any other public figure and become the true hero of your life, your family and your professional career. Then you will be surprised to see the spirit of God manifested in your life. So whatever your social origin, your race or the city you are in, you will see that you will have realized things that no one else has ever dared to imagine.
