Success Is In Belief

Changing self-doubt into self-belief is a choice. We are answerable for ourselves. Only we can change what and who we are.

Do you know what you are? You are a manuscript of a divine letter. You are a mirror reflecting a noble face. This universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you are already that.”

WE ARE ANSWERABLE FOR OURSELVES

I am so small I can barely be seen. How can this great love be inside me? Look at your eyes. They are small, but they see enormous things.” — Rumi

Drum sound rises on the air, its throb, my heart. A voice inside the beat says, “I know you’re tired, but come. This is the way.” — Rumi

OUR CRITICS MAKE US BETTER

“If you knew yourself for even one moment, if you could just glimpse your most beautiful face, maybe you wouldn’t slumber so deeply in that house of clay. Why not move into your house of joy and shine into every crevice! For you are the secret treasure-bearer, and always have been. Didn’t you know?” — Rumi

CHALLENGING OURSELVES

Start a huge, foolish project, like Noah … it makes absolutely no difference what people think of you.” — Rumi

When you go through a hard period,
When everything seems to oppose you,
… When you feel you cannot even bear one more minute, NEVER GIVE UP! Because it is the time and place that the course will divert!”

CHANGING OUR PERCEPTION

“Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.” — Rumi
