Powerful hair Malik

So right now, I’m not going to bullshit you, I’m actually listening to a tune from Zayn Malik — yes it’s true and the song is called “It’s You”. Now that we have got that out there and I’m being completely transparent, let me get to some dropping of knowledge on this post.

The reason why this song and more it’s title resonated with me, is the fact that it carries a simple message which can be applied when looking at our lives — It’s You.

Yes, it’s about you, this life is what you make it. During my continual journey of studying the mind, a trait I’ve come across alot is that many of us aren’t stopped from doing what we want by external factors but we are generally stopped by ourselves from achieving what we want — it’s a case of you vs you.

You’re battling a familiar foe

Think about the occasions when you’ve wanted to do something or you’ve set a series of goals that you would like to achieve by a certain time. It feels good to do this and you look to put a plan of action in place to reach these goals, but then you hear this little voice in your head, whispering sweet negative vibes to you about how you can’t or you shouldn’t or people like us aren't allowed. This is an all but too common process for many people, but you have a choice, you have a choice to whether you give this voice a platform to spew its negative vibes or drown it out with the belief that you will accomplish your goals.

At the end of the day, the only person that’s usually standing in the way of us and our goals, is the person that looks back at you in the mirror everyday. It can be hard to face these facts sometimes, but know that if you can harness your own self belief you can conquer many obstacles.

Something very important to note here aswell, it’s ok to fail. Millions of us are failing again and again and again, but it’s about developing our self belief to get back up and keep going. Make peace with who you are as ultimately this life, your life, is about you — so what will the chapters of your life say?
