What is that voice in your head telling you right now? It’s very important that we are in tune with what words we say to ourselves each day. Far beyond what anyone else can say to insult or hurt us, what we tell ourselves can make us our own worst enemy. A peaceful mind comes from Acceptance. It is important that we accept each moment as it is now. We do not want to be in a place where we are stuck and have no control, but want to remain focused on the present and working with what is now.
Many people dwell on how people have wronged them, but really this is only creating more energy around a negative situation. There is nothing you can do to control people in your life. At times, you may succeed, but controlling behaviors lead often to a loss of control. What we can control, however, is our perspectives and our own minds. Thoughts are controllable. They can shift our perspective of any given situation entirely and bring us back to harmony. We always have a choice to take even the ugliest of truths and make them a positive situation for ourselves. This is what has bred some of the most amazing artists, authors, actors and leaders in our world. Most people don’t skate through life with doors magically opening before them. Most people are driven to pry door opens or find the ones that may not be available to others. They are opportunists.
People who succeed tend to be more aware of the opportunities before them or are resourceful enough to locate the ones that fit what they need in the moment. Being an opportunist can be a creative effort. You can only know that something is the right opportunity or situation for you when you are in tune with life and have the ability to experience moments where things do flow. Things that are right seem to fit seamlessly; there is timing that takes all effort away. Things that really don’t fit the mold, usually comes with great resistance.
So what is it about things that you have to fight your way to gain and once you achieve it, it was worth the battle? These are things that test your character and help you realize that no matter what the obstacles have been, something in you kept pulling you through. Nothing could stop you. This is the drive with a deep underlying voice that tells you that the path is going to be rough, but it will be worth it. You may not always understand why, but the voices in your head know what you need to do. It’s like an inner compass that guides you and when it is working, you will notice that all you need presents itself along this path. It can feel magical at times and most of us have on some level experienced this. For some, it happened when you met “the one” or your current partner. Although the person may not fit the criteria you once had, the person fits your life completely and it works. It may be a career that you had no idea would interest you, only to find all the jobs you had before lead to this career that encompasses all of that experience.
When you become aware of how the universe works and you start to understand your own reasoning amazing an amazing shift happens within you. You develop two very important positive things and that is trust and faith. Even if you don’t trust entirely trust that voice in your head, learn to direct any negative thoughts into positive ones. It is the best way to counteract negative outcomes that come with the pattern of a negative mindset. Even if you did not have faith, this practice will restore it and show you that life really is not that bad after all and that you do have control over creating a life you can love.
