We somehow buy into the notion that if we weren’t successful yesterday, we certainly can’t be successful today or tomorrow.
If you can see how ridiculous and self-defeating this belief is, you can make an instant shift toward success. What prevents us from tapping into this potential is our own mental ties to the past. Letting go of your past is like taking a set of heavy chains from around your neck.
Our past has no power other than the power we give it. One of the most dynamic and significant changes you can make in your life is to make the commitment to drop all negative references to your past, to begin living now. The positive energy you create may shock you. New doors and opportunities will open.
As your past habits creep into your consciousness, simply acknowledge them and let them go. Focus on what you can do today, right now in this moment.
Your husband is especially good because he is progressing in Krishna Consciousness.
Even if there is some misunderstanding between husband & wife
that should be completely neglected & you should always remain rigid in service of Krishna.
