“Listen to the little voice in your head that tells you a particular contract is bad news. Trust your instinct to know when the situation is impossible or the person you are working with is unethical in some way.”
I have no clue who the author of this quote is. Somehow I have forgotten to jot it down in my notebook. My guess is it’s from one of my Writer’s Digest magazines.
Faith: confidence, trust, reliance, assurance, conviction.
I believe that everyone has an inner dream as I also believe that some of us have more courage to admit what it is. But only few of us have the faith required to work on making that dream come true.
I think every dream, every activity or project in this life requires faith. Faith not in some supernatural or magical force. No. Faith in ourself. Faith in our ability to do things and do them well.
Sometimes, however, no matter what we do we feel we are stuck in the same situation. No matter how hard we try to realize our dreams we end up running into stumbling blocks. Whether it is the job we want so badly or the perfect dwelling. We try and try and work hard only to realize we can’t change anything.
So we start to wonder if there is something or someone influencing the process. In our mind we go over every step we have taken until that point. We have done everything in our power, from pursuing an education to getting a job. We have worked our ass off and yet nothing changes, or so we think anyway. We start praying for a miracle knowing very well that it is not coming.
I believe there is no such thing as luck in this life. But there’s something called an inner voice, a feeling, a vibe that we get from some people and certain situations. Sometimes we get a good feeling, a positive vibe, but at other times we feel like we should just turn our back and walk away.
I had that feeling when I first met our new landlord. I didn’t know what it was that I felt. But something didn’t seem right. I wish I had paid attention. That’s why I cannot say I am not lucky. Because there is no such thing as luck. Only an inner voice in our head or our heart.
