Lately, television and newspapers have been saturated with so much sadness. Stories of people making their transition before they have had a chance to live; tales of wonderful people bought to their knees by illness; recent events involving hard-working couples’ falling prey to mortgage foreclosures are running rampant throughout our society. These are the events that have hypnotized us into believing that we are victims, unwilling partners in a game headed for destruction. Feeling powerless, we keep telling “stories” of lack, impending doom, and financial destruction and if we are not the ones telling the stories, we certainly are intently listening to them and willingly passing them on. We unknowingly weaken our beliefs, our consciousness every time we participate, actively or passively, in these kinds of conversations. Beliefs are just a set of opinions that we regard as factual. Our “facts” or beliefs about escalating prices, economic disasters and impending illness are the key that activates the various laws of cause and effect. We must learn to change our focus and tell different stories. I often say our conversations, our thoughts must mostly consist of what is right with our lives and less of what is wrong. If you are finding this difficult to achieve, then you must look at what you believe. If you are always sick, every supervisor you have had treats you unfairly and you are constantly robbing Peter to pay Paul, then your life is speaking volumes about what you believe. It is time for you to focus your attention on your negative parent thoughts and eliminate them; not gradually, but with deliberate and purposeful intention.
In order to live the life we were created to live, we must start to tell different stories, have different conversations. We all have the same amount of time, how we utilize our time determines our success. The difference between people living their best lives now and people, who are not, is consciousness. Because we do not have any time to squander, start right not to think about something that made you feel good. When you awaken every morning, think of something that happened the day before that made you feel good. Before you fall asleep at night, always think of something that happened during the day that made you feel good. As you begin to focus on good things, you will attract more good things, thereby, giving you material for telling better stories.
Remember, life is too short to drink cheap champagne. Dream Big! Life the life you have imagined.
