“I’m not good enough”, “I’m not smart”, “life is hard”, “I’m not loved”, “What if I fail?”, we all have those kind of voices in our head running constantly throughout our life.

Most people are blaming how life sucks, how the government sucks, throwing all excuses around, contaminating other people, and if you still close to them, you will be contaminated too.
And what does, they start conforming that all the negative thoughts are real, so they start becoming bigger, crippling you from living the kind of life you want to live.
