troublesome, and at times, impossible journey.
He believed only in the things he was taught
since he was a child;
and that he had to always try to fit in with
everybody else’s thinking,
ignoring his own mind completely.
As a consequence, he was living a life full of
fear, despair and self-doubt;
worrying constantly what the others will
think and say, if he acted on his own wishes.
He was never himself, and he had no faith
at all in who he was.
He was always weary and tired, anxious
he never pursued the profession he wanted;
he never developed any friends, or any

routines or proper habits;
and all this, because he never believed in
“ I can’t go on like this, any more;
I’m a loser, and a failure.
I must stop being so afraid of others;
I must stop doubting myself so much.
I need to start having faith in myself.
I need to believe that I can do all the
things I really want to do “.
He said to himself one day, feeling really
strongly about it.
And from that moment, his whole life

deep inside, that everything will improve

in any way, you need to have faith.
Because without it, you could never expect
circumstances in your life to go well.

anything you put in your mind;

pursuing your goal.
