People, often times, feel trapped. They think they know what is trapping them. However, what people don't realize is they are trapped in a "thought built" world of their own making.
Thoughts trap you and thoughts set you free.
You will notice when you are feeling powerful and good about yourself it is because your are thinking thoughts that make you feel that way. And when you feel powerless or trapped that is because you are thinking thoughts that are making you feel that way.
That is how powerful your thoughts are....
