There is a saying out there, when times are good, people tend to party and when times are bad, people tend to ponder… I think this is an interesting observation. I have noticed this in my own life that when times are rough I tend to really ponder and dig into myself, like you should, yet when I do this I start attracting persons, places, and things into your life and a positive affect begins to happen. But when this happens often people forget to keep doing things that brought them to this place of abundance initially, I think we get the mentally that all the good can’t end yet in all reality its a slow decline back to where we where before.
I think the statement, your inner world creates your outer world is very fitting. We as humans always try to change our circumstances and beat ourselves up and work harder yet we fail to realize that all this “action” is really covering up the bigger problem of lack or insecurity in ourselves. Its been said that we all have a thermostat that controls the level to how successful or how unsuccessful we become. If we push really hard all of a sudden we experience a level of success, but then our thermostat comes on and sabotages our level of success and brings us back down to where we are set at. If we all want to experience a higher level we need to focus and grow from the inside out and our preset level then goes up and the world, almost like magic, grows with us and we experience a much higher level of connection and success in the world. Lets wrap this up and be mindful that when we are in the state of success and everything is going well around us, remember to take a minute out and be grateful and keep doing the things that got you to where you are. Consistency is the power that creates the habits that coaches us to accomplish our goals.
I started rewriting this blog, well OK to be honest I never really started it if you count the one default post and the one where I say it’s the beginning of the rest of my life… lol! So I started writing this because recently after a very low point in my life, this event caused me to dig, dig really deep to find the meaning into my soul and heart – I have learned that they these events are not “problems” as we call them but more than anything an “OPPORTUNITY” to cause to dig into our soul and find what it is we need.
We all have the answers inside of us – think about that for just a moment… If we go out everyday and try to seek whatever it is we seek… that event actually begins to allude us, like two magnets the repel each other. Like the saying goes the more we seek for security in our lives the more insecurity we attract into our lives. If we suddenly grasp that gold mine of the concept that the answer is inside of us, a real sense of peace comes over and our perspective of all the “problems” actually makes us want to dig and realize this is nothing more than a process of refinement.
Ok – so on to the topic of who is on your council. By this I’m stating that its the little voices in our heads that tell us what to do or not to do. Not in a schizophrenia way but these thoughts arise from past experiences, whether good or bad. If you study anything on the mind, which is a very complex subject, thoughts are what start the events that create our outer world. Think about it, how did we all get to this great nation we live in, or the car we drive, or the phone in our hand, these things we have now, are nothing but the product of a thought that was brought forth and manifested. So if thoughts are who we are, like it says in the Bible “..as a man thinkith, so is he,” then the person we have hired in our head as the council that guides us everyday, is it serving us? Honestly I can say with confidence that 90% of people on this earth have hired the wrong advisers in your head. It’s not you, the person, that is messing up but its the bad council you listen to everyday. So wouldn’t it make sense to say then we should go into our subconscious mind and fire those that are not serving our best interest and hire the right team that will guide and direct us in developing our true potential as human beings? The answer is 100 times yes!!! Now you make ask, well if I fire that council, who do I now put on the board? Great question! In the book Think And Grow Rich, the author talks about hiring those that you look up to as mentors, whether you know them or not. For myself I’m actively seeking those in the world whom I look up to and respect, I.E. Jillian Michaels or Oprah Winfrey – you must study and research them so when you ask for their advice in your subconscious know exactly what they will advice you to do. One note on this though, is to pick advisers that are not self-serving in their contribution to society, but those that are self-giving. Meaning are these people that you look up to, are their actions centered in, well if I do this action will it benefit me instead of those that look at their actions as benefiting others….
I look forward to your continue growth and seeing you discover your full potential! 🙂
I love this passage from Goethe so powerful and pointed to what it takes to focus the mind on make a commitment, tenacity and all that it takes to make your life blossom into the person your supposed to be…
“Until one is committed there is always hesitancy,
the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness
concerning all acts of initiative and creation,
there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans;
The moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.
All sorts of things occur to help that would never otherwise have occurred.
A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising one’s favor all manner of unforeseen accidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness had genius, power and magic in it”.
