Today, we strive to achieve an optimistic state of mind because many influential individuals advise us to be optimistic. Besides this, we practice optimism because we are aware of its advantages.
However, we quickly give up on optimism and believe it doesn’t work because of the following wrong beliefs we have about it.
- Optimism automatically makes an individual successful
The self-help industry has made people believe they can attract success by simply meditating on a bright future. For this reason, many individuals practice optimism without working hard, and they give up on optimism when they don’t attract success after a short period. Little do they know that optimism takes long to attract success, and it only attracts success if accompanied by hard work.
I believe the main purpose for optimism on the road to success is to enable an individual to keep working despite the number of obstacles he/she faces.
- Bad things don’t happen to optimistic people
Many people believe that only good things will happen to them if they practice optimism. For this reason, they give up on optimism and believe it doesn’t work when bad things happen to them. I think motivational speakers must constantly remind people that optimism doesn’t prevent bad things from happening. Instead, it enables folks to persevere bad times as it gives them hope for a brighter future.
- We can immediately attain an optimistic mindset when we decide to do so
Most of us believe that we can immediately attain an optimistic mindset when we decide to be optimistic. We, therefore, give up on optimism when we fail to maintain a constant state of optimism after a few hours/days of practicing optimism.
We fail to realize that we must practice positivity for a long time before we attain an optimistic mindset.
If you just try to immediately attain an optimistic mindset without practice, you will fall back to pessimism. The surest way to become constantly optimistic is by working on achieving this mindset every day.
Last year, I gave up on optimism because I always succumbed to pessimism after a few minutes of trying to be optimistic. I concluded that optimism is an unreachable state of mind just because I couldn’t maintain it for an hour. I never knew that I must constantly practice positivity for me to attain an optimistic mindset.
This year, I’m trying to be optimistic by trying the ‘optimism challenge.’ In this challenge, you must avoid worry, complain, or any negative emotion for three weeks. And if you complain or entertain any negative emotions within the three weeks, you will have to start again.
According to Brian Tracy, the founder of this challenge, something good will happen if you successfully complete the challenge. I welcome you to this challenge, and please let me know if anything good happens to you after continuously staying optimistic for three weeks.
I believe optimism is responsible for making many individuals persevere on the journey to success because it’s easier to keep working if you believe that your hard work will eventually pay.
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence – Helen Keller, American Author
It’s hard to work towards your goals with a pessimistic mindset because you will have to force yourself to work every day. Besides this, a pessimistic mindset will increase your chances of giving up because you’ll believe that your efforts won’t pay off. That being said, embrace optimism, and believe that everything will work out for the best.

Is Dreaming Meaningless? Taking a Deeper Look into Dreams
For years, mainstream science has lied to us about dreams by informing us that dreams are meaningless. For this reason, most of us never try interpreting our dreams to find their deeper meaning.
I used to believe this scientific viewpoint of dreams. However, I doubted it after deeply analyzing my dreams.
While analyzing my dreams, I noticed that my dreams felt so real that sometimes I couldn’t know that I was dreaming. Besides, I realized that some of my dreams were prophetic because sometimes I dreamt about a situation that I would later experience in real life. As well, I noticed that I had bad dreams when stressed, and good dreams when I was happy with my life.
These realizations enlightened me that dreams are not meaningless as scientists claim because nothing meaningless can neither be prophetic nor can it have the ability to reflect emotions. Furthermore, feeling as if I was experiencing a real experience while dreaming encouraged me to believe that dreams had an importance that most of us don’t know.
I thus decided to study dreaming deeply, and I realized that many ancient people believed dreams were powerful. Most cultures believed dreams connect us to a spiritual reality, and therefore, we are always in the spiritual realm when we dream.
At the same time, some ancient cultures, e.g. the Egyptian and Mexican cultures, believed dreams provide us with coded messages from powerful spiritual entities. These cultures took dreams so seriously that they established schools specialized in dream interpretation.
Besides ancient cultures, I discovered that modern religions believe dreams are meaningful. For instance, Christian leaders preach that God speaks to us through dreams, and they use the story of Joseph to prove that dreams are messages from God. Also, Muslims believe dreams are important, and they believe some dreams come from the devil while others come from the ego.
Furthermore, many famous psychologists of the 19th century believed dreams were important. For instance, Carl Jung, a well-known psychologist, believed in the importance of dreams for as he wrote, ‘we have forgotten that God speaks chiefly through dreams and visions.’
In addition, he also believed that ‘dreams are a little hidden door in the innermost and most secret recesses of the soul, opening into that cosmic night which was psyche long before there was any ego-consciousness, and which will remain psyche no matter how far our ego-consciousness extends.’
Having said that, does it make sense that dreams are meaningless as mainstream scientists claim? Did ancient cultures, modern religions and psychologists guess the importance of dreams, or did they notice that dreams were important after studying them?
Anyway, I believe dreams are important, and the Illuminati, through mainstream science, deceived us about dreams because it didn’t want us to gain spiritual insights – from dreams – that can lead to a spiritual awakening.
The Illuminati usually strives to make everything meaningless since it doesn’t want us to ponder the magical mysteries of the universe that would lead to spiritual and mental growth. Therefore, one way to impede spiritual growth was to lie to us about dreams through mainstream science.
The good thing is that we are now awakening to the truth, and we’ll study and meditate on dreams until we understand the spiritual secrets within them that will help us awaken to our true spiritual nature, know the infinite possibilities of the physical world, and rise above the corrupt system of the Illuminati.

The Three Major Voices in our Heads and Why We Must Know Them
We all have voices in our heads, and some of us try silencing them because they sometimes cause depression, anxiety, or worry.
Although these voices mostly cause feelings of distress, some of them can help us overcome obstacles and understand our true selves. It’s thus important to know the type of voice present in your head at any moment so that you know whether to ignore it or listen to it.
I wanted to know the different types of voices in my head, and therefore, I meditated on them, and I eventually realized that there are three major types of voices in our heads.
Here are they:
1.The Animal Voice
The animal voice mainly focuses on survival. It likes talking about food, water, sleep, and other factors necessary for our survival. For instance, if you are hungry, this voice will constantly talk about food, and it will try to help you find food. Also, if you haven’t slept for a while, it will constantly tell you that you need to sleep since it knows that sleep is important to your survival.
2.The Ego Voice
This is the loudest and the main voice that speaks to us all the time. It’s created by our egoic-self.
The ego voice is highly judgmental and pessimistic. It fears uncertainty, and it will always talk you out of taking risks or doing anything with an uncertain outcome, even when it will be beneficial in the long-run. Besides, it likes knowing everything about the future, and for this reason, it will always overanalyze or try to predict the future.
The ego voice is usually confused since it is disconnected from reality. Lastly, it usually talks about your appearance and social status, and it worries when you encounter factors that make you feel less important.
3.The Voice of Infinite Intelligence/The Intuitive Voice/The Voice of God
Mastering the intuitive voice is the secret to spiritual growth because this voice loves directing you towards spiritual development by reminding you about the importance of spiritual practices. It also loves reminding you about your dreams and your heart’s desires so that you follow them and reach your full potential. Besides this, it cares about everybody, and it encourages you to be compassionate, loving, selfless, and benevolent.
This voice is never confused, and everything makes sense when it speaks. We must learn to pinpoint and trust it because it always leads people towards prosperous and fulfilling lives.
It’s important to know the difference between these voices so that we know the voice that we must pay attention to, and the voice we must silence or ignore. Anyway, besides these voices, I believe there are many other voices in our heads. You are free to discuss them in the comment box below.
