This is the second of 108 tips to Livin’ the Moment. Let’s take back our lives one beautiful, funny and delicious moment at a time.

#2 of 108:  Believe in Yourself (let’s just try it today and see how it goes)

This place is a dream
only a sleeper considers it real
then death comes like dawn
and you wake up laughing
at what you thought
was your grief.

~ Rumi

To reiterate the above, the Sufis say we go to sleep upon being born and wake up when we die.

If true—and I believe it 10000 percent—then consider that since this is only a dreamworld we are living in…

…that we have crazy powers. Most of these powers lie dormant, because we don’t know how to access them.

The trick is…if you can fully believe in something, especially yourself, you gain all the power of the universe. But as Emerson said, “If I have lost belief in myself, I have all the universe against me.”

Let’s go Momenteering!
