“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” Wayne Dyer
I recently watched the world renowned documentaries, “What the bleep do we know?” and “The Secret” for a second time after a few years. What a powerful reminder of universal wisdom! The creators of both DVDs certainly did a phenomenal job in communicating timeless knowledge in such a way that almost anyone is gently introduced to the greatest truths of our existence in a matter of a few hours.
If you haven’t watched one or both of these documentaries, stop reading this article and watch them NOW.
I am so very grateful to the makers of both documentaries for playing their part in the most powerful paradigm shift currently occurring on planet earth; the transition from Newton’s view of the universe working like a giant clock (where we are merely observers) to Einstein’s mind-blowing view of the universe thorough the quantum mechanics lens (where we are creators).
Since more and more humans are beginning to look at life and their connection with it in a different light, I am very proud to add fuel to the fire through my writings.
Here are five simple life changing truths which allow you to better your life simply by changing the way you look at it.
True and Lasting Change Only Occurs
When We Can’t Go On But We Don’t Give Up
Awareness is the mother of change. It is only when a person becomes aware of the differences between where they are in life and where they would like to be that they can begin to do something about it. Often, people aren’t willing to change their life much until something HUGE happens, like a severe auto accident, the death of a loved one, or finding out they have a terminal disease.
If you look at the core of what these events really do, they dramatically change the way people think in a very short period of time. Let me be the last one to tell you; you do not need something drastic happen to you externally to change your thinking. Search within you for any desires you may have to accomplish whatever you would like and give those desires more emotion and more attention.
I guarantee you that you can create a true and lasting change in your life as long as you don’t give up and decide that you won’t go on anymore creating the same life you have been creating up to this point.
Problem Acknowledgement Always Precedes Problem Resolution
It is not possible to fix something if you are not willing to admit it is broke.
It is not possible to address your smoking problem if you are not willing to admit that it is causing very serious harm to your health and shortening your stay on this most amazing journey called life. It is not possible for you to consider joining a gym or changing your eating habits if you do not believe you are overweight and that it may lead to serious health problems down the road. And it absolutely not possible for you to change your financial situation if you do not think that being $20,000 in debt will always keep you running in a hamster wheel, living paycheck to paycheck.
Something amazing happens when we acknowledge a problem’s existence: WE CAN BEGIN TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
Life is too short. If there is a pile of dirty clothes in the corner of the room and we just choose to look the other way, guess what, they will still be there the next time you look.
Accepting Response-Ability For Your Circumstances Is The Beginning Of Positive Change
Life is unfair. There, I said it. I will say it one more time. Life is not fair.
You can read the line above several times – you may even have to read it a hundred times before you begin to understand its significance. The truth is, no one really knows why we are here on planet earth and everyone claiming to know the answers is forgetting to tell us that it is their THEORY as to what they believe the purpose of our life to be.
With that being said, I believe that life is 90/10. 90% of what happens to us is in our control and we ATTRACT it into our life. However, I believe that 10% just HAPPENS to us and we have no control over it. Call it the lessons we need to learn in this lifetime and so forth.
Until you accept response-ability for your current circumstances, it is NOT possible for you to begin to do anything about them. You see, it does not matter what happens to you in life, it ONLY matters how you choose to react to it.
If you have a major or possibly many minor challenges in your life, look at them right in the eyes, accept them for what they are, and choose to accept response-ability for them so you can begin to create positive change in your life.
You Can Only Give To Others
That Which You Have Inside You
People can only give to others that which they have inside them. If you find yourself angry with your children, angry with your boss, angry with your co-workers, angry with your life, I am sorry to tell you but it is not them that may need to change, it is you!
If you wish for your relationship with others to have more love – be more loving. If you wish for others to be more understanding towards you – be more understanding towards others yourself.
If you wish to enjoy a better experience while dealing with others, learn to look inwards and see how you can improve yourself before trying to improve them.
Knowledge Is Not Power
Knowledge Properly Applied Is Power
Everyone knows that we must eat healthy and perform specific exercises to create the best body possible. We also know that if we keep doing the same things over and over again, we are going to keep getting the same things over and over again. Most of us also know a tremendous amount about other areas of our life, knowledge so powerful that it has the ability to take our circumstances to a whole another level.
Yet – guess what? Knowledge is absolutely powerless without application. It is until we choose to do something with what we know that we can begin to experience the results from its application. Just like a hammer means nothing until someone lifts it and smacks a nail with it, knowledge is not powerful until it is used and applied.
My intention in writing is to positively affect people’s lives by channeling timeless universal wisdom and knowledge. I hope that you gained valuable insights on how to further improve your life and take your abilities to a higher level by applying that which I shared with you.
One last thing before I go. If you are able to find people that believe in you, cherish them as much as you possibly can and take the time to thank them for having faith in you. Having someone look you in the eyes and tell you that they believe in you is one of the most encouraging experience for any human being.
Cheers to a happier, more fulfilled and vibrant life, now.
