Have you ever wondered why so many people are overweight when there are hundreds of diets and thousands of books on how to be healthy? Why so many people are unhappy in their relationships when there is more information available today on how to create loving, lasting relationships than ever before? Why so many people struggle with debt when there are known, timeless principles for financial prosperity?
The truth of the matter is we all want to be healthier, in loving relationships and financially independent. So why is it that so many of us are not? The answer is so simple it will surprise you; because we are programmed and conditioned to do just enough to survive, to just get by, to just make it this week or this month. The results in a person’s life are always a mirror reflection of their programming, thoughts, feelings and actions.
You see where you are today in life is a sum of all the choices that you have made up until this point. They may be what you wanted or may be just what you settled for. If you are happy with where you are today in your life, than that is wonderful. If you are not, allow me to share my thoughts with you which may make you look at tomorrow and the future very differently.
In Life Everything Is Energy
We can look around us and talk about things on many different levels; however they all boil down to one thing and one thing only: energy. Let’s use your body as an example. First we can look at your body as a whole, the person who’s name is you. But you are not really you. You are actually made up of many different organ systems, each with a very specific role and all working together to keep you going. All these systems are contained together with a skeleton and skin.
Another level deeper all those organ systems are simply an active grouping of organs. Each organ is a living breathing colony of cells. Cells are composed of molecules which are themselves made of atoms. Then you have electrons, protons, and neutrons. After that there is only one thing left and that is energy. No matter what you look at in life, it is energy at its inner most core.
You see, to begin understanding life one must continuously learn more about energy. Please allow me to help you understand this concept better.
We all start out in life with an identical physical body. Our physical body is merely a shell, a holder for our energy essence. Our body has three main functions. The first is to collect data through the five physical senses and convert that data into energy, either raising or lowering the vibration of our collective energy. The second is to allow us to function in the physical world, to walk, to eat, to breathe and so on. The third is to reproduce thus creating more shells for even more energy to become a part of life. An ever growing, upward spiral if you would.
When we are born our bodies can be likened to empty glasses which are slowly filled with energy over the years as we go about collecting data through our five senses in the progression of life. In the beginning we do not have control of what energy goes into our empty glass. Call it life, call it fate, whatever it is we each start out dependent upon our parents and how ever they choose to raise us in the beginning years. We do not pick the country, the culture or the household we are born in. We may not agree or be happy with everything that we go through in our early years but it will be a part of us for the rest of our lives whether we like it or not.
We Can Choose Differently
This is where I would like to make a crucial point. We don’t have to keep going on the same road that we have been on up until now. We can choose differently and align our life with WHAT WE REALLY WANT instead of doing what our parents, our society and the world expects us to do. Most of us will make this decision somewhere around 15-25 years of age as we begin to start defining life in our own vocabulary. For some it will be sooner, for others even later and for some, never.
Our parents, schooling and society programs us how to think. They tell us what is acceptable and what is not. Most people simply choose to live with this programming and pass it on to their children unconsciously. Simply speaking, if we are happy with the results in our life then all is well and fine. However, if we feel that we can be so much more than who we are and live a happier, more prosperous life, the answer is YES and the starting point is to begin to create a burning desire for our deepest wishes.
Ask yourself why do you want to lose 40 lbs? Why do you want to be healthier? What does a happy relationship look like for you? Are you doing your part in creating one or are expecting your partner to carry the entire load? Why do you want to earn extra money and what will you do with it when you earn it? It is – when you ask and answer questions like these – that you will begin to create the desire essential for the fulfillment of your wishes.
An Important Technique
One of the most important techniques one can utilize to begin manifesting their dreams is to write them down on paper. Thoughts are simply energy. They are on a different level or dimension than the physical world we live in. When a person takes their thoughts and writes them down those thoughts now become a part of the physical world. Just by writing a thought down whether it is a goal or an item on the to-do list we are already half way there in achieving it.
When you wake up in the morning and before you go to sleep look at your list of desires. Read them out loud and as you do place your right hand on your heart. Feel good about yourself and picture yourself in your mind as already having achieved what you want to create in your life.
T. Harv Eker, the famous author and owner of Peak Potentials Training puts it this way:
P -> T -> F -> A = R
(P) Programming or conditioning of how we are raised leads to our (T) Thoughts and the way we think. Our thoughts lead to our (F) Feelings and how we feel about ourselves, which in turn lead us to take (A) Actions. Simply put our actions are rooted in our programming, thoughts and feelings. Our actions create our (R) Results.
One of the guaranteed ways for a person to create desired results in their life is to model others who have already created what one is looking to achieve. It is when we look at those who are already successful in the areas in which we are seeking to improve we realize something very special. The happy, prosperous and rich people all have certain traits, certain ways of living and going about life which set them apart from the rest. They all possess a deep, burning desire to be successful and are willing to take sustained, lasting action. We can learn from all the rich and happy that success and happiness are simply an acquired state of mind.
In conclusion the most certain way to go about creating results in life is to begin to program and condition yourself for success. This will lead to the thoughts and feeling which will serve as fuel for the actions which you need to perform in order to manifest your results. You can begin to reprogram your beliefs and conditioning in countless ways.
A great beginning is to read some of the all time success and achievement classics, such as “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill, “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie and “The Power of Positive Thinking” by Norman Vincent Peale. Another way is to associate yourself with positive people who choose an uplifting outlook on life and believe in themselves and their ability to create results.
In your race to the finish line you are your only hurdle. Learn to overcome yourself since nothing on the outside can ever stop you. I wish you all the best on your ongoing journey to lasting happiness and success.
