It's All In Your Head!
Is nothing working in your life? No matter how many self-improvement podcasts you listen to, do you seem stuck on the same merry-go-round? Is your job unsatisfying, and do your relationships suck? Are your finances a mess, and could your health be better? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, or worse, you can answer yes to all of them; then you need to transform your mind!
Firstly, all Personal Development and Self Improvement start in mind. Your current circumstances began in your mind. Take a look around you right now. Stop reading this and look around you for several seconds, then return to this post.
You have attracted everything you see around you into your life - from the chair you sit into the building you occupy. Look at your job - you chose to apply for it (or at least accept the position). Look at your home. You decided to live there. Look at your car, your spouse, and your friends. Yep, you chose them all. You must realize then that you must first change yourself on the inside to change your outer circumstances. Your life will improve when you change your choices and beliefs about what you can achieve, have, and deserve.
If you feel terrible because your life is not how you want it to be, you owe it to yourself to change it. But the truth is until you decide to change it, you always get more of what you focus on. Your life is terrible now because you are focusing on it being wrong, and if you keep doing that, it will just get worse. It's all in your head!
Today, change your focus and move your attention to the things working in your life. In time you will start to notice more and more of what you do want in life appearing. To change your focus, you must first change the way you feel. Next, look for the things you are grateful for. Give thanks to them for what you have. Then, create a vision for what you CAN achieve, have, and deserve. Visualize it daily, and stay focused on that. If you keep this up, soon, your life will begin to take shape in the direction of your dreams. Believe in yourself! You can make it happen!
Be thankful that you have a job and a roof over your head. Be grateful that you are not alone in life. Have gratitude for the money you do have. Give thanks that you are alive and capable of changing your current circumstances. Gratitude is the key that unlocks your unlimited potential.
Take time to celebrate the small victories, no matter how insignificant. Each step forward is an accomplishment and should be acknowledged and rewarded. Every win, big or small, brings you closer to achieving your goals. Set positive intentions for yourself each day. Focus on what you strive to achieve and have faith that it will come to fruition.
Visualize the success you wish to manifest. Imagine yourself living your dream life and how it would feel to have achieved your goals. Create affirmations and positive mantras that help drive you forward daily. No matter what happens, never give up hope or forget why you are working so hard in the first place.
Practice gratitude for only 15 minutes a day, your focus will change to the positive, and your life will improve within a month. Within a year, you and your outer world will be transformed.
If something undesirable happens, look at your reaction to it. The way you react tells a lot about your focus. Do you know that successful people believe that everything happens for a reason? Successful people believe that, somehow, there will be a positive outcome. They think a force directs them through thought, action, and circumstance toward their purpose. Creating a new belief system only takes approximately 30 days.
Try this approach. You will be amazed at what happens. Just keep telling yourself that everything happens for a reason, which will work out for your good. Convince yourself that every cloud has a silver lining, and it will become true. Re-direct your focus by being grateful for what you have in your life now. Open your vision to the abundance around you, even without experiencing it firsthand. It only takes a slight shift in your attention to bring it directly to you!
Remember - it is all in your head! So have a Hustle Culture Day!
