Some people are successful in mastering life, while others permit life to master them.
There is a split in you that is very clear. There is part of you that knows what you should do, and a part of you that does what it feels like doing. Don't let passion drive you, let reason hold the reins.
Once you understand these opposing forces warring within you, with this knowledge of the truth: you no longer remain a slave. A clear understanding of this will make you the master of your life.
Resistance is your thoughts transformed into feelings.
Change the thoughts that create the resistance, and there is no more resistance.
Are you controlled by your thoughts or are you controlling your thoughts? If you do not conquer self, you will be conquered by self.
If you are ruled by your mind you are a king, if by your body, a slave.
