Decreasing the negativity in your life increases the possibility of opportunity. Also in my previous post I wrote about how I beat out a nemesis for a prestigious promotion. Something similar can happen to you as well and may show up as a new job, client, or whatever you might be seeking.
Being open to the possibility allows opportunities to come forth in that you become more aware of what’s out there, and it’s waiting for you to discover.
How many times as a child or teen were you asked what you wanted to do or be when you grew up? Did you become what you wanted? Or did you conform to what you were supposed to do or be?
Realizing that we have choices to control our own wheel of destiny is not a psychic phenomenon; it’s one of a natural law buried within us. By that I mean we are born with the world at our feet; I read this morning a blurb from a great thought leader that we are born with challenges and limitations. Which are you more inclined to believe or grasp a hold of? Do you prefer being open to the possibility of many opportunities, or would you rather look at all the challenges and limitations life can throw at you?
I know I what I choose. And I choose it Every. Single. Day.
Removing the negative from your life, your arms are open wide, ensuring and allowing all the goodness and prosperity life has to offer to enter. Most certainly, situations happen that we have no control over; but if we take those challenging times and turn them around, our confidence thrives and triumphs.
Be open to the possibility. Be open to the positivity.
Here, try this. Instead of focusing to remove the negative aspects of your life or thoughts, focus on increasing positive ones only. For example, if you are dissatisfied with your job or what you’re doing, concentrate on what you’d rather be doing.
When the possibility of being ousted from my corporate position a few years ago, I created a list of pros and cons both with staying in the job and being let go. Remaining in the job meant nothing would change; I would continue to receive an income, have health and travel benefits, and so on. But if I was not to remain with the company, all I could think about was “I could now do what I wanted to do.” And that was to write, become a published author—even though I didn’t exactly know what that looked like at the time.
The positive draw outweighed not having a steady income and having to find different health insurance. Somehow I knew that if I worked in my passion, what I loved to do, all else would fall into place. And it has.
This can happen to you, too, if you really want it to. But it takes the 3-D’s of living: determination, dedication, and desire. (I’m developing a web/teleseminar around this concept.)
Tell me—or not—what will you do today, right now, to increase your positivity, your openness, your opportunities to create a life you want for yourself?
I’d love to hear about them.
To your success,
“I sometimes ask myself how it came about that I was the one to develop the theory of relativity. The reason, I think, is that a normal adult never stops to think about problems of space and time. These are things which he has thought about as a child.” ~Albert Einstein
