Hello again! Here’s hoping you’ve started taking baby steps towards building your goals and setting your sights on your dreams for THIS year. . Let’s get back to how the most important person in the world can ride the waves and shoot for the stars in 2010. Yes, YOU are important – you are in this world for a very unique purpose…that only YOU can fulfilll. Be sure of that, each one of us came into this world with a purpose…figuring out what that is can be so rewarding.
That’s exactly what I meant by the title ~ taking on a new perspective about YOURSELF. Realize that you are important and there’s a lot in this world in store for you. As Wayne Dyer would say…”If you change the way you look at things, the things you look AT will change.” If you think you’re in the dumps now, decide to take on a new way of thinking. Start by realizing that nothing is going to happen if you don’t pull yourself out. Negative thoughts beget negative actions, so stop seeing things on the minus side. The Universe does not know the difference between when you’re thinking negative and when you’re thinking positive…either way it will interpret your most dominant thoughts as requests – think negative…receive negative. There is always something positive even in the direst situations. Compassion, empathy, and kindness arise from tribulations and not from glittering achievements – and they make us better persons. If you are not experiencing some sort of “un-comfortability” you are not growing.
Train your sight and mind to perceive the silver linings. You’ll own one of life’s greatest talents if you are able to do this. You will light up a room with your presence because others will enjoy being around you. Your energy LIFTS their energy without you even having to lift a finger. Everyone likes to be with people who exude positive energy…even in the face of adversity and when you think positive you attract positive. Never fear going through the things that seem so difficult – simply laugh and learn from them, because they always have a way of teaching us valuable lessons. When you get so worked up about the possibility of something negative…you scare yourself right out of getting started in the first place.
Love and praise yourself and be your own cheerleader. If you think people will always be around to commend you, I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t work that way. . Everyone is busy fighting their own battles and in doing so they do not always allow them to recognize the successes of others. No need to sulk when people close to you miss out on your milestones. A confident individual does not rely on praises from others – he or she is completely satisfied with the achievements themselves and the praises come on as mere extras. They give themselves exactly what they need every morning before leaving the house. Whether it’s a moment of positive notes to themselves in their journals, written on their mirrors, stated out loud before they leave home, etc. It doesn’t matter ~ they have what they need before the day even begins. Anything extra is a bonus!!! Yes, it does feel great when people praise you, but if you feel they have to… you my friend may need a refresher course in self confidence!
The most successful people I’ve met went through a lot of bloopers and blunders, and I firmly believe that those experiences are what helped them to reach the top. . Experience is always the best teacher. It allows you to feel situations and not merely read or hear about them. Being afraid to make a mistake snuffs out your energy and excitement over new challenges. So get rid of that self-imposed notion that you have to be perfect. Fill your heart with eager anticipation instead so you can motivate yourself better and explore more areas for success.
Nothing and no one is responsible for the things that have NOT manifested in your life except YOURSELF. Stop blaming the world around you for what you think are your limitations. It’s all in your mind. If you find that difficult to do, learn from others who have done so. Be with people who have risen from their own ashes and rebuilt their lives.
