What stories do you tell yourself that creates the life you live… the thoughts that go round and round in your head?
Your thoughts create your reality
You may not be able to change situations and circumstances, but you can change how you think about them. When you change your thoughts, you change your life.
Think about the things you complain about. This will give you a clear indicator of what stops you from having the life you would love to live. These complaints prevent you from creating more joy, more fulfilling relationships, and more peace of mind.
Lets look at what you complain about, do they sound like these?
I haven’t got enough time.
I can’t afford many of the things that I desire.
I won’t ever get a better job.
I’ll never find a partner in life.
When you look closely at your complaints, you’ll more than likely realise that they are mostly about you. They are not about other people, situations or events.
What does that tell you?
It tells you, that there is something you can do about them; this is all within your control.
What if you were to become an “inverse paranoid”? If you believed that the universe is conspiring to provide for you, to support you and will deliver what you need when you need it. What would change? You can choose to believe anything you want – it’s your choice. Whatever you choose to believe, that is what you will live out of.
“Imagine how much easier it would be to succeed in life if you were constantly expecting the world to support you and bring you opportunity”.
What if you believed that you could have the life you desire if you were willing to focus your energy on what you want, rather than on what you don’t want?
What if you decided to harness your inner strength?
What if you silenced your inner critic?
What if you were to change your assumptions about luck and about success?
And yes… deciding to make changes can bring up fears and discomfort. But let me ask you this…
If you don’t make changes, how will this year be more fulfilling, more joyful and bring you more peace of mind than last year?
“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
George Bernard Shaw
- What needs to change in my life?
- What is stopping me?
- What stories do I tell myself, so that I can continue to live this life?
- What reality am I creating for myself?
Know that YOU are the creator of your reality.
Even small changes and slightly different choices can lead to massively different outcomes.
What one small thing will you change today… this week?
For now, it is enough to take the first step.
Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you,
and you can change it. You can influence it…
Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.”
