“You were born to do more than just go to work, pay bills and die.”
Part of my journey of awakening over the last few years has opened my eyes to concepts that I had never explored or studied in depth before. I had been exposed to them in various forms but never really understood them until recently. The Secret was released 10 years ago this year. When it first came out I watched it over and over convinced I had found the answer to my misery. I did a number of the exercises and recommendations only to be disappointed. My life didn’t change; what was I doing wrong? At least I was given the opportunity to watch such a movie; I am not sure that many seek out this type of information as clearly if more people were utilising this power then the world would not be in such a bad place!
Only 3% of the population (who happen to be the rich and successful population) are aware of this power and, believe it or not, we all have this incredible power within our own minds. We allow ourselves to be exposed to extreme negativity through all media channels and wonder why life is so hard. We choose to allow ourselves to be influenced and swept along like sheep that will eventually threaten life as we know it. Climate change is now no longer a fantasy but a fact.
One of the many techniques I use to strengthen my mind, to stay focused and disciplined for my diet and training, and to bring about the life I want is to listen to, watch, read and study a few motivational and inspirational gurus. There were numerous people featured in The Secret, all of who individually preach the same message; some resonate with me more than others. Equally I go through different phases of focusing on one and then returning to another. I have learnt to listen to my intuition of which motivational speaker will support me at any given time.
They all have a different way of conveying the same message; of how to use this powerful mind that we have been gifted, of how their journey has led them to incredible success utilising this power. Sometimes I am learning from a book written a very long time ago on living your dream life. Or I am listening to already successful people such as Oprah, who understand and have utilised this power so well. Or I am listening to a more spiritual form whereby spirit is actually communicating to us of these universal laws that we have access to within our own minds.
The thing is, this power is available to all of us. It is not luck that these successful people have such a dream life; they create it! They deliberately create it and they do it with their mind. Think about the modern conveniences we have today such as electricity, the car or aeroplane; where do you think the seeds of these history altering inventions started? They all started out as an idea in a human beings mind. They all started out with a human being believing, without a shadow of a doubt, that their idea would come to fruition. Against all odds they believed. You don’t think Henry Ford was not ridiculed for his idea of developing a motor car…?
I am not suggesting that you are intended to create something to change the way we live life (if you believe you can, you will!) I am just encouraging you to take an interest in this information if your life is not the ideal life you want it to be; if your dream life alludes you. If you haven’t got the money, the relationship, the career or whatever is lacking in your life. Open your mind to where anything is possible. Because anything is actually possible! We hear of miracles happening all the time; what makes you think it can’t happen to you? It is your belief in your own mind that prevents this “luck” from appearing in your own life.
It is imperative in order to be successful with these theories to obtain some control over your monkey mind. This information did not get through to me when I was living the life of a party girl, drinking, socialising, out every weekend and having no appreciation of my own thoughts. That is what I was doing wrong! It is space, silent space, alone space, being present in the moment space, that is when these lessons start to resonate. That is when ideas are formulated. Not while the mind is busy, busy, busy.
I know what you are thinking; I don’t have the time… I really don’t have much time in my day either with a full time job, heavy training schedule, food prep, adequate sleep, life admin. We all have hectic busy lives. But I make the time to expose myself to this positive influence every day if I can. I choose to influence my mind with this positivity rather than the constant stream of negativity from the media. For me this is my commute time. There is time in your day if you choose to prioritise your time accordingly. Is Facebook or TV more important than propelling you towards your dream life?
I know what you are thinking next. This is a load of hooey and it won’t work for me. It is only for the lucky ones, the intelligent, the gifted, the whatever. You have heard the rags to riches stories; what makes you think it can’t be you? You don’t think Anthony Robbins or Oprah were born into their current life…? There are people that were once homeless who are now hugely rich and successful. They didn’t win Lotto, they didn’t inherit a large sum of money; they all used the one thing that we all already have. Their mind.
I am currently going through a Bob Proctor phase. The way he speaks really resonates with me at the moment. He is not too spiritual, he shares the information with such passion and in depth knowledge that has you believing 100%, he speaks in a way that is easy to follow and understand. His teachings are based on a few authors, with some written many years ago. Napoleon Hill and Earl Nightingale to name a couple.
If you are destined to be in enlightened in this lifetime you will at some point be drawn to this information. All happy and successful people are. Even if you are not ready I would still strongly encourage you to click on this link and watch Bob in action. I am also an affiliate and endorse his work. I don’t do many endorsements; I am a pretty hard marker just quietly… If you undertake any of Bob’s programs I know that it will be a game changer.
There are a few others that I rotate through; Dr Joe Vitale, Ester & Jerry Hicks and John Assaraf are my regulars. The number of these influential gurus is growing and I would encourage you to find one that resonates with you. Watching The Secret is a good place to start.
Life is not meant to be lived in mediocrity. Why do too many of us settle for an ordinary life? We were not born to just join the rat race, work the 9 to 5 grind, pay bills and die. I am always astounded at the unhappy faces I see on the bus on their way to a job they hate. 5 out of 7 days of their week they hate; that is around 70% of their life. This is not living! I know it seems impossible when the bills are piling up, believe me I have been there! And while I am not quite there yet I know I am definitely on the road to living a life I LOVE! And I am doing all I can to get there.
What do you want? What do you really want? What are you doing to get it? What are you doing to improve your life? To fulfil your dreams?
