Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.” — William James, philosopher, psychologist, physician
Life really isn’t complicated — we just make it that way.
If it seems like everything is going wrong and you’re asking yourself what is the joy or purpose in life, it isn’t because there is a problem with life — it’s because there is a problem with you.
If you approach life with negative feelings, you’re going to make decisions that, whether you realise it or not, are prone to bring negative results.
But if you tell yourself that life is good, if you commit to living with that idea as one of your core beliefs — that cannot be shaken by anything bad that happens — then the decisions you make, both consciously and unconsciously, will guide you toward positive results.
And the more good things that happen to you, the more your belief that life is good and worth living will be reinforced, until it is unshakable, no matter what bad may come your way.
Now, belief that life is good is not a belief that nothing bad can or will happen to you. But when bad things happen — and they should happen much less frequently — your belief in the goodness and value of life will minimize the negative effects on you and enable you to quickly get back to success and happiness.
Life really is worth living. Start believing it, and you’ll see it manifested in your life.
