“We are nothing but a bundle or collection of different perceptions.which succeed each other with an inconceivable rapidity and are in perpetual flux and movement.” — David Hume
The moment you step out of your house,you are perceived,people form impressions based on what you are wearing,where you eat,what you do,where you live and how you live.It doesn’t just stop, though you get back to home at the end of the day.
We humans are perceptions.
Perceptions we have of each other,and perceptions we have of ourselves.
Whose perceptions actually count?Whose perceptions are actually the truth? Our Own or other’s.
What perceptions are valuable?
If you don’t value others perceptions,does that mean they are not true?
If you value your own perceptions ,does that mean they are true?
How you see yourself is more important than any one else’s view of you.
Self doubt? It creeps onto you whenever you set your goals high.
If you see yourself as weak,undeserving and not worthy of all the affection and admiration or the success,there’s no point in achieving it at all.
Claim what is yours.It doesn’t matter if you are fighting smaller battles or loosing larger ones,because what’s important is you are fighting one,you did not surrender.
See yourself as a warrior,win your battles,you didn’t win the war,you just fought some battles on the way,some are hard earned while others are simple wins,Self doubt is certainly a hard one. Believe in yourself so much that you don’t doubt your own success,nothing surprises you ever,you are ready for anything that comes your way.
Fight it warrior!!
The only perception that counts is what you have of yourself in your mind!
