Are you a prisoner of your own mind?
What if there’s a way that you can set yourself free the prison of your mind — the prison that has kept you stuck where you are all these years?
Think of a person who has been imprisoned for life.
Do you think that person has something to live for, something to look forward to?
Now, imagine that person is you. Are you a prisoner, a captive of your own mind?
At times, you are a prisoner of your own thoughts and past experiences, believing that you have nothing to look forward to and that life has dealt you an ugly hand, one that you have begrudgingly accepted in the belief that life will not deal one that is more appealing.
The truth is, you need not accept that hand as it is.
With focus and determination, you can change it.
You do not have to endure the life that you are currently living.
When you decide enough is enough, you will be in a stronger position to step up and change your life. In doing so, you will have taken the first step to freedom: to set yourself free from the prison of your mind.
Now that you have decided to release yourself from your prison, feel a sense of inspiration flow through you. It may be a slight sensation, but all the same, feel it.
This inspiration will allow you to see the possibility of a different world, one where you will feel good about yourself and the life that surrounds you.
You will unlock your prison door and it will open slightly.
If your thoughts are currently bleak, and dark, and you’re wondering how on earth you can get out of this ever-winding cycle, the answer is for you to get inspired.
Read about other people who were in similar situations, or possibly worse, and yet they managed to change their world.
You can find out what inspired Helen Keller, who was deaf and blind, to overcome her challenges; she changed her thoughts and did not allow her physical obstacles to be a hindrance.
She went on to make phenomenal changes in her life and the world.
When you think about what she had to overcome, are your challenges that tough?
So, what can inspire you to overcome your challenges, your difficulties?
What can inspire you to step up and open your prison door wider?
Start a list. Write down one or two inspiring actions that you can take within the next five days or so. They can be small. The size doesn’t matter; we are after you taking inspired action.
Remember, your door is now ajar. You’re beginning to see signs of hope. By starting that list, you’re opening the door wider.
To help you feel inspired, recall a time when you achieved something. It could be getting an ‘A’ at school, passing your driving test, perhaps successfully finishing a tough project at work.
Remember how you felt; feel the joy of success, motivation, and inspiration.
And as you do so, feel the door opening wider.
Feel the positive, inspiring energy course through your body. Feel great about yourself.
See the door to your prison spring wide open.
You’re now free.
Write down as many inspiring actions as you can. When done, decide which one you will act on within the next twenty-four hours.
Do it, be inspired and set yourself free.
Take the bull by the horns. Take your life to the NEXT level and live the life that you truly want.
Break out of the prison of your mind, my friend.

Hani A Al-Qasem believes that together, as human beings with a conscience, we can share our expertise, our strengths, our passion, our gift to create awareness that there is another way to make things happen. Instead of ‘changing the TV channel’ because we can’t bear to watch the harshness of life around us, we can take combined action to transform lives.
We cannot change the circumstances that brought people to where they are, but we can change their thinking, from within, to improve the quality of their present and future lives.
