Accept Where You Are Only AsAuthor Byron Pulsifer, © 2008
Where you are today in your life is only a reflection of what thoughts you've been holding. Let's make this plain and simple. If your thoughts are dwelling on your current circumstances, for example, same old job going nowhere, lots of debt, worrying about how you're going to survive, then this is what you will continue to attract to your life.
What you are saying, in fact, by holding these thoughts currently, is that you don't have the latent power within to make things change for the positive. Is this what you really want to say and do? I think not.
How Do You Change?
So, how do you start to change your life to unfold into better times, being what you want to be, to do, or to have?
First, you need to recognize that you have complete control over how and what you think. Nobody controls your thoughts unless you've given them the power to do so. These thoughts are what can move you to direct the power within you to choose whatever you want in your life. Where you are today is just that - it is only where you are not where you are going to be. But, you have to control your thoughts so that you possess not only positive thoughts of where you will be but highly emotional thoughts.
The more emotional your positive thoughts, the stronger they are. Unfortunately, this emotional power can work in reverse - so don't give emotional strength to negative thoughts.
You Are Respnsible For You
The sooner you accept this, the sooner you can move away from your current situation to something more pleasing, exciting and worthwhile. Most people don't take responsibility for their current situation preferring to believe that outside forces, circumstances, birth, training, or world conditions design their destiny.
Let's be brutally honest here. If you can find an excuse to not move forward to what you need and want, you will never find the peace that you seek. It is not just a once and awhile thing. You must be totally committed - you must desire something so strong that you will never deviate from a course of action that brings you forward one step at a time. The real opportunity to change is in the here and now - not to dream about it, or wish for it, it is something you must engage in wholeheartedly in the moment.
The Other Real Truth . . .
is that no one else can do any of this for you. On the other hand, this does not mean that you cannot seek another person's help to guide you, to mentor you, or to be a positive influence and encourage you steadily even when things seem to be going nowhere. The person you select, in an ideal situation, must be a positive person who has experienced change of their own; a person who understands what it means to make changes in their own life and how they did it.
If you cannot find a person you can trust to lead you or to help you properly, make a visit to your local community resource centre, or a local community support group and ask for guidance. They are equipped with resources that you may never have thought of and can point you in the right direction.
A Point To Remember
"Your circumstances right now are ONLY current reality. And current reality CAN CHANGE."
It's time for a major change; stop thinking about the way things are right now and start thinking about how they should be. Take responsibility for your own life - don't let others, circumstances, nor nay-sayers dissuade you from aspiring to what you want. Believe
