What if you woke up one morning and decided to view the world through different filters, how different would your life be?
Imagine experiencing a major disappointment as number 1 ranking tennis player Ash Barty did after losing at Wimbledon and saying, “Today wasn’t my day it isn’t the end of the world”.
Imagine the world is conspiring to support you to live your dreams as Louise Hay did, she went on to build Hay House.
Imagine questioning if your perception is accurate, that there might be a better way to view what’s happened to you, as Byron Katie did. Byron not only ended her cycle of depression, she found inexplicable joy which she says she still experiences today.
Imagine choosing to believe that everyone loves you, as I’ve recently done. I can’t tell you how much happier it makes me feel and how much easier life flows.
The ultimate freedom we all share, regardless of our circumstances, is the way we view the world, and that is one freedom no-one can take that away from us. It doesn’t matter if you live in one of the poorest parts of the world, how smart you are, or if you have no-one to support you. You and only you have control over what goes on in your mind.
Denis Waitley says, “If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you won’t, you most assuredly won’t. Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad.” But belief isn’t a feeling, it’s taking action. Repeated action towards a goal, or lifestyle, creates a neural pathway in our brains that supports the creation of that outcome.
When I first became interested in personal growth we didn’t know about the brain’s ability to rewire itself, or the power of heart intelligence. We simply acted on faith and that decision enabled me to create a life and achieve goals that many said were impossible.
The only person who lives in your mind is you. You can choose to procrastinate until you are perfect, and it will only slow you down. You can choose to worry about what other people think of you, it will only make you doubt yourself. You can beat yourself up when you make a mistake or blame someone for why your life is the way it is, and you’ll give away your freedom.
Or, you can choose to believe that disappointment is only temporary. That the world is conspiring to support you. That everyone loves you. And that you can have everything you want. Just imagine what a difference you could make with your life if you chose to believe in you, and your dreams?
