Its easy once you start.
I mean, its not always easy, and sometimes it doesn’t feel easy at all, it can feel really tough and sometimes you slip a little.
But compared to not doing the work, to not clearing the crud, to staying stuck where I was, lost, unknowing, feeling like a victim and at the mercy of every happenstance? Compared to that, the work of personal development is so easy.
I know now that everything happens for me, its all good, it all works out in the end, and I can allow life to unfold and know that its unfolding perfectly for me. I know that.
That why, when I slip back. I always shake it off and dive right back in.
Before, I reacted to everything like it was a disaster, the sky was falling in, and so it was a disaster because that’s how I saw it. And I would keep making things worse because my thinking kept creating more and more disasters for me.
Because that’s what I focused on and so my mind thought that’s what I wanted and gave me more of it.
Today, I know that everything is okay. Its all good and I’m good and I’m taken care of. I trust in life and everything works out.
Or truthfully, I’m not fully there yet, writing that last sentence gave me a twinge of unease in my stomach, so there’s still work to be done but I’m so much closer to believing it and trusting life and trusting myself.
One of my teachers, Morty Leftkoe used to talk about how we make ourselves miserable by giving a meaning to the events that happen to us that makes us even more miserable.
Imagine something happens, say you get a parking fine as I did a couple of months ago. I choose to give that event, the receipt of a parking find the meaning that I was in trouble, that I’d have to pay the extortionate £100 fine and that there was nothing I could do about it. And boy, did that make me – not only miserable but mad as f*ck!
Then I decided to choose another meaning. The parking fine was wrong and the operators were cowboys and with that new meaning I was able to take corrective action.
I phoned the hotel where the car had been parked and explained that I had been there as a paying guest and would they please do something to quash this ridiculous punitive fine and they did. They phoned the parking cowboys and killed the fine off for me.
What does this mean for you?
Notice the situation you’re unhappy with, and look at the meaning you’re giving to the situation. The emotion and energy you’ve tied to it.
Now shift that meaning to something more beneficial, just as I did.
You’ll find the emotions and energy change as the meaning changes.
Its that easy. I could have stayed miserable and with a £100 fine or I could do the work and change the meaning, feel better about everything and take corrective action.
Change your thinking and you change your life. Allow good things to happen for you, instead of only seeing bad things happen to you.
Life gets better when you get better at life.
PS. Think what would life be like if your thought processes were upgraded so you became unstoppable. What would life be like if you were able to step up and show up as that best ever version of you that you know you’re capable of?
Picture yourself thriving in life, developing an instinct for making the right choices, knowing in your gut you’re always choosing the correct thing for you.
Imagine any addictions, old anxiety and fear melting away, no longer influencing your thinking, your behaviour, your decisions. You are free to make better choices.
Think how it would feel achieving your goals with far less resistance, whether it’s earning an extraordinary income, being a rockstar in your business or career, or excelling in your personal relationships. You can do it, you have no fears about any of it anymore.
See yourself fully present and grounded, living with total fulfillment and satisfaction with how life is unfolding for you, with zero regrets, as you fearlessly carve your own path forward.
