(Humans are Free) We have come to the point in time where more and more people are embracing new ideas, thoughts, or concepts that can revolutionize their lives.

These radical thoughts are very helpful in our quest for growth and self improvement.
If you want to grow to be your best self, then you may use these thoughts as tools in changing your life and be the best self you can ever be.
1. You are not your thoughts
Your thoughts are shaped by your experiences, environment, and life situations.
Your mind works based on how you perceive and interpret things but it doesn’t define who you are.
Whatever you perceive, you are not that thing because you’re only the observer of it.
2. Your life is lived in the now moments
All throughout your life you’re faced with the present, the past, and the future. But in the real sense, you’re only living in the now moment.
The concept of a past or future only robs you of living in the present.
When you take care of your present day situation, you don’t need to worry about the past or the future.
3. You will find satisfaction in life when you know how to control your moments
By facing every challenge that comes with the moment, you’re able to control how your life goes.
When you’re doing things that aren’t working against your will, life is more satisfying and fulfilling.
That’s how you find real satisfaction, by realizing that you always have the power to choose how you react, not the moments themselves.
4. You can live in the moment fully by not attaching yourself to outcomes
While you create a mental idea of something before you make it happen, you should not be attached to its outcome.
Anything can happen under the sun. If things don’t happen the way you want them to be, accept and let go.
Living in the moment is being open to anything that is designed to take place.
5. You have the power to cope with suffering
The presence of suffering can denote two things.
It’s either you’re doing something wrong and suffering is the only way to wake you up, or you’re being nudged to roar and realize your full potential.
What you should know is, you have the full control of your reaction to pain and suffering. And if you’re wise, you’re able to realize the gift that suffering brings you.
6. You should not rely on your emotions
Your emotions can sometimes be influenced by the external forces around you. If you’re an empath, you’re prone to picking up emotions that aren’t yours.
If you’re unaware of this, you may think that something is wrong with you when in fact those emotions belong to someone else.
Besides, on your journey to spirituality, deep sadness may bother you. But this doesn’t mean you’re on the wrong path. Your emotions are just pointing you to something that needs healing within.
7. Good and bad are both effective motivators that help you to keep going
Don’t think that you only need the good to survive in your chosen path.
You need both the good and the bad, the light and the dark.
The good will inspire you and the bad will provide you lessons that push you to stay strong, do more and be more.
8. Effective beliefs are not fixed
Believing in something can give you directions and structure in life.
But as your growth is laid down before you on an installment basis, so must your beliefs be.
Effective beliefs are the ones that aren’t limited or fixed because you’re an evolving being who should hold a belief system that is expandable as you are.
9. Your life path is yours to take
The path you’re intended to follow is designed solely for you. It’s based on your experiences, choices, influences, and your unique signature. No one can live it for you.
It may be a struggle when nobody seems to understand you. But take note that you couldn’t understand them fully either.
It’s only when you accept that each person is unique can you truly understand why others fail to understand you. This must come with a choice, a decision, an agreement with yourself. You are the author of your life and only you can control it.
