Today we’ll be inspired once again by our lovely amasssing contributor Kay Chong. that has shared another piece of beautiful content and it reads as follows:

We all bear witness to the #achievements of great people…and many of us look on in envy thinking “if only I could be like that…” The reality is, the success of great people has a formula. A Formula that you, yourself can master too. This is the true essence of #detoxing our mind and bodies, to remove the negative factors (like environment or food) that we are putting into our bodies everyday. That hold us back, that set artificial limitations on what we can accomplish.

 
I’m here to tell you the truth: your #success is determined by the attitude you approach life with, the environment you choose to surround yourself with and the effort you’re willing to put in. Without a great #attitude, the road to success is burdensome and tiring. Without passion on what you are doing, you will be exhausted and easily give up. 
 
Without great people surrounding you, being a #positive influence on your life and serving as #RoleModels, the path to success is troublesome, and without great effort and great #actions to act upon the opportunities you are given, you will never move on or never #change.
 
I’m here to tell you that once, I was like you… caught up in the negativity and unaccomplished. And I’m here to tell you, that like me, you too can own your own life, gain back your own health, and be as successful as you want to be. If only you have the #courage to walk the path and be #amasssing.

I get it. Life isn’t always smooth sailing. Sometimes all you can do is to row and keep going… until a certain point in life, you might feel tired… mentally, physically, and even emotionally exhausted as people around you are not as supportive as you think it might be. I have been to this point in my life too… yet, I never allow myself to stop at this point of my life, instead, I ask myself what should I do next? What’s next? 

First, Letting go of Self-Blaming…

Forgiving Yourself and Greet New Day With A Forgiving Spirit. Forgiving yourself for the choices that you’ve made in the past that lead to who you are today and the health conditions or body shape today. You can reverse things that seems like bad odds in your hand, by first letting go of self blaming and then forgive yourself.

Here’s one of the 7 decisions for success before you dive into commitment to change for better health. You can study one decision at a time, each for 21 days. You will read it aloud twice daily during that time. Upon awakening and as the last thing you do before you sleep. You must not miss a day. Each decision will become a part of your being, unstuck the bad energy and guilty thoughts that stopping you to do what you want to do, buried in your heart, captured in your soul.

Dear Kay,

For too long, every ounce of forgiveness I owned was locked away, hidden from view, waiting for me to bestow its precious presence upon some worthy person. Alas, I found most people to be singularly unworthy of my valuable forgiveness, and since they never asked for any, I kept it all for myself. Now, the forgiveness that I hoarded has sprouted inside my heart like a crippled seed yielding bitter fruit.

No more! At this moment, my life has taken on new hope and assurance. Of all the world’s population, I am one of the few possessors of the secret to dissipating anger and resentment in the past, and of other people’s opinions about me, how I looked like, and how should I behave. I now understand that forgiveness has value only when it is given away. By the simple act of granting forgiveness, I release the demons of the past about which I can do nothing about my health, my career, my financial status, and I create in myself a new heart, a new beginning. 

I will greet this day with a forgiving spirit. I will forgive even those who do not ask for forgiveness.

Many are the times when I have seethed in anger at a word or deed thrown into my life by an unthinking or uncaring person. I have wasted valuable hours imagining revenge or confrontation. Now I see the truth revealed about this psychological rock inside my shoe. The rage I nurture is often one-sided, for my offender seldom gives thought to his offense!

I will now and forevermore silently offer my forgiveness even to those who do not see that they need it. By the act of forgiving, I am no longer consumed by unproductive thoughts. I give up my bitterness. I am content in my soul and effective again with my fellowman. 

I will greet this day with a forgiving spirit. I will forgive those who criticize me unjustly. 

Knowing that slavery in any form is wrong, I also know that the person who lives a life according to the opinion of others is a slave. I am not a slave. I have chosen my counsel. I know the difference between right and wrong. I know what is best for the future of my family, myself, and neither misguided opinion nor unjust criticism will alter my course. 

Those who are critical of my goals and dreams simply do not understand the higher purpose to which I have been called. Therefore, their scorn does not affect my attitude or action. I forgive their lack of vision, and I forge ahead. I now know that criticism is part of the price paid for leaping past mediocrity.

I will greet this day with a forgiving spirit. I will forgive myself. 

For many years, my greatest enemy has been myself. Every mistakes, every miscalculation, every wrong relationship, every wrong decision, every stumble I made has been replayed again and again in my mind. Every broken promise, everyday wasted, every goal not reached has compounded the disgust I feel for the lack of achievement in my life. My dismay has developed a paralyzing grip. When I disappoint myself, I respond with inaction and become more disappointed. 

I realize today that it is impossible to fight an enemy living in my head. By forgiving myself, I erase the doubts, fears, and frustration that have kept my past in the present. From this day forward, my history will cease to control my destiny, because I have forgiven myself. My life has just begun. 

I will forgive even those who do not ask for forgiveness. I will forgive those who criticise my unjustly. I will forgive myself. I will greet this day with a forgiving spirit. 

Love,
Kay
