My life is changing dramatically at the minute. I'm pursuing a career. I am building my own business. I am looking at houses and some time next year, will be buying one of these houses and moving away from my parental home for good. Although I still have my down days, my dark days; every day I am noticing more and more that I am overwhelmingly happy. I am much more positive. I still notice negative thought patterns in my head, but I talk back to them. I am focused on what I want and I take steps every day to move towards that. The things I want are already here and more things are coming to me.

This morning I woke up with a pit in the bottom of my stomach. I felt sick. I was very nervous. Besides having to get up a good two hours earlier than I normally would, I had to get on the bus to Leeds and visit a shopping centre I rarely visit. Here, I would be working for the day in another store, underneath another manager who would be testing me for eight hours. My goal was to be officially signed off as a team leader. For about 10 minutes, I let myself feel the anxiety, the nerves, and then I got out of bed, I made my breakfast and I told myself "I am a Team Leader". I told myself while I ate. I told myself this while I showered. I told myself on the bus. I told my friend from another store as we walked into work this morning "I am a team leader." Within 4 hours, my certificate had been signed saying I was ready to be a team leader. I had made it and I had made it in half the time it was supposed to take.

I believed I could, so I did.

This wasn't luck. This was my hard work and my belief in my self. Today more than ever, I'm realising just how true the idea that thoughts become things really is. I've been practicing the idea that you create your own life seriously since around March this year and it's no coincidence that since March, I have received everything I have asked for. I feel much more happy and fulfilled and the more I practice positive thinking, the more I focus on thinking about what I want, the more I believe in the power of manifesting. I don't want to go into too much detail about this because there are so many people who have covered this already and they can explain it so much better than I can.

I just want you all to have faith in yourself. To believe in yourself. To understand that if you expect your life to be negative, it will be. If you get out of bed like I did this morning and tell yourself the thing you want has already happened, then it will happen. There's such an epidemic in this world of people not being happy, not understanding their own power and it needs to change.

Your life is what you make it,
