I was reminded recently during a cycle of depressing thoughts and a "will I ever get out of this" attitude, that, I have a choice!!!
I can choose to be negative and expect negative or I can choose to be positive and expect positive. I chose to let myself accept good!
As they say, life is 10% what happens and 90% how we respond!
So often in our thought processes we find ourselves backed into a corner. We think we are stuck there and we begin to blame anything and everything.
We blame other people, other circumstances, where we were born, who our parents are, lack of finances, lack of education, even ourselves!
It's easier to blame something or someone because then we have a reason to be where we are in life and a reason to stay where we are. Sometimes it's called being the VICTIM.
But you were born with a free will. You were born with a creative mind. You were born with an ability to see beyond where you are, to dream.
You have a choice! You can choose to blame and settle for your current circumstances. Or, you can choose to allow yourself to look at the possibilities and allow yourself to dream. DREAM!
In the morning when you wake up, you can choose to dread the day and expect negative things to happen, OR, you can choose to say, "this is going to be a great day!" You can choose to expect good things today!
If you do this, you will be amazed with the way you feel and how much more energy you will have for the day. Also you will notice a difference in your creativity. You will actually see more possibilities and how to accomplish them.
Choose to develop a different mindset. Choose to think "I could actually do that." Choose to feel what it's like to step out and fly instead of sitting in the nest for the rest of your life.
Start by making a list of things you would like to accomplish. Lists that include:
Starting that business
Going back to school
Paying off that debt
Being financially independent from my parents
And the list goes on and on....
Once you have your list, then start planning out the map of steps to see the dream come true! It's a process, but it's attainable!
Discovering Life Together!
