The wonder of being human is that we have the ability to change ourselves. First we must realize this power that we have and then harness it. When we begin to make changes the reactions we get from others may surprise us. The desire to make changes is there but our internal beliefs may not be strong. Many family members and piers will have the same beliefs.
They may try to pull you back to your old way of thinking – to their way of thinking. They may be convinced that they are helping you. You must move forward in the direction of the growth you desire otherwise you will live in limbo and continue to long for a better life – the life that you desire to live.
Three things can hold us back. Regret, indecision and fear. I remember the saying, ” Sorrow looks back, worry looks around but faith looks up!”
Regret can haunt our thoughts. What if I did this……..I probably would have got that promotion. I should have saved more money. If I hadn’t given in, I would not have made that mistake or if I would have finished school I would be farther ahead in life. Get clear of these thoughts and let go!
When we are indecisive, we will encounter circumstances that are positive but we interpret them as negative. Focused intentions are important. Focus on solutions to a problem and write them down. Ask others for ideas and options that can help. It’s better than sitting around and worrying. Force yourself forward!
Fear is the power of what if. Thinking right away of the worst that could happen, we talk ourselves out of ideas and solutions. Don’t focus on the problem. Focus on the opportunity.
Have a good plan. Focus on it relentlessly and look to the future for resolutions!
Are you feeling stuck in areas of life such as relationships, career, lifestyle or health? You are in the right place. You can write the pages of your life to create the life you have always wanted.
