I have made a lot of changes in my life and my way of thinking over the last few years and even more recently things have started to come into focus for me. As that happened I came to the realization that Life can be amazing… if you let it be. What do I mean by that? Have a seat, relax and get ready to find out.
Overcoming Your “Programming”
If you add up the entirety of our life experience you will come up with what your “programming” is. From the moment you incarnated here on earth as a baby, through your childhood and into adult hood you defined the parameters that you live your life by today. Many of us though, have come to suffer from one big, yet not so obvious, problem… crossed wires!
What do I mean by crossed wires? Well let’s use a good example that I picked up from reading Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, in which the author uses wealth accumulation to describe it. He states that most of us would like to be rich, not many if any of us would turn down a large sum of money, right? However, even with that basic desire of having an excess of money, many of us also have the mindset that money isn’t important or that it is the root of all evil.
When it comes to creating our lives, we need to learn to give the universe a clear message. We can’t in one breath desire lots of wealth, but in the next say that it is not important. We are sending a mixed message to the universe and the Law of Attraction then becomes muddled and often the opposite desires just cancel each other out, leaving us right where we were to begin with.
Therefore, it is important to really dig down inside of yourself to truly understand what you want. Then make sure you are sending a clear message and not crossing your wires. To do this you need to learn how to focus on your core values. This is why I starting using the process I describe here in Creating the Life You Want to Live.
Aligning Yourself to Move Forward
By identifying your core values and tracking your progress as you work towards them, you will find that life can come into focus much easier than before. When you start to really understand this process, you will also find out how easy it is to create the life you want and without the crossed wires you will see results.
Another important step that this process brings forward is accountability and that is hugely important to progress in life. If you are not accountable for your actions, then chances are that you are playing the blame or complain game. Both of those will only attract more things in your life to blame or complain about, so why not replace that with accountability and thankfulness?
Let’s go back to what I mentioned earlier when I talked about the crossed wires and wanting money but despising it at the same time. This holds true for basically anything in life not just money. If you desire meeting the love of your life, but harbor negative feelings against those that already have it, then you will not get to where you want to be. Another example to that would be the desire to meet someone, but the thought process that all the good ones are taken.
This is why aligning yourself with the path that you want to take is paramount in getting and staying ahead in the game. To those that are where you want to be, look up to and admire them. Be thankful that they succeeded and if you can, compliment them on a job well done. Have you ever heard the phrase, “If you want to be successful, then surround yourself with successful people,” because that is exactly what I am saying here.
Think of those that are where you want to be as trailblazers. If they can do it, well then my friend, so can you. So, next time you come across the person ahead of you or where you want to be, make sure to congratulate them and be thankful that they have shown you what can be accomplished in this world.
Mindfulness is a Great Tool
While a lot of these concepts sound so simple you think that we would all have been doing it by now, right? You might think that, but in reality, you have to be mindful to progress down the road of success. Mindfulness is a practice that takes time and commitment to build, it just doesn’t happen overnight.
Even for me it is a daily challenge to be mindful, but the challenge is what makes life interesting. I find myself in a constant battle at times, but what I have found is that over time things get easier to progress through and as that happens I learn and grow. With each day though brings new challenges, and thus why being mindful of your actions is so vitally important.
Another important item to remember is that we learn a lot in life by modelling those that are important to us. The clear majority of us have many traits that we picked up from our parents and siblings through modelling, and we don’t often even realize it. This again is why it is important to be mindful as old habits can be the hardest to change.
Let Life Be Amazing!
Taking all of this into account, it is time to start letting your life be the amazing one that you want to have. Apply your focus to being mindful and to positive actions that progress your towards your values that are most important to you. Wherever you place your focus, the universe will undoubtedly give you more reason to focus there.
So why not start making the change today and create an amazing life ahead of you? Let’s get the ball rolling with coming up with something that you are truly thankful for and that motivates you the most. Think of what makes you the happiest. Now, what actions can you do to focus on that? Act on those actions and at the end of the day record your results, good or bad and you will see a change in your life as that item takes center stage for you.
My last tip here before I go is this. Life will never be amazing as long as you are complaining about it or things in it. Remember that wherever you place your focus the universe will give you more of it to focus on. So, if you are complaining you will only get more to complain about! (This is something that I have been working on changing in my life, replacing complaining with thankfulness.)
