Is life happening to you or for you?

by | Oct 22, 2021.

Whether you believe it or not, your mind controls how you see things and everything you do.

Think of a time you were completely overwhelmed by what you had to do, one you may have had to approach or a nerve-racking action you needed to do. Why were you feeling anxious or overwhelmed? Simply put was the fact that you associated in your mind more pain and nervous feelings based on that moment compared to a more positive or even neutral perspective.

Now think of a time you were itching to move with total and utter excitement. Maybe it was hearing the news of something you were always planning to do and it was finally happening. Maybe it was a huge win you achieved after working so hard on reaching that goal. How about starting that new business you’ve always dreamt of and always knew that it would feed your soul knowing that you’ll be serving people on such a deep level that’ll it reshape their lives and because of what you do, their lives will never be the same again?

Seriously, what’s the difference between the powerful empowering mental state you’ve experienced compared to the disempowering states that hold you back? Perspective and outlook.

You always have the power in every moment to see everything as either happening to you or happening for you.

The choice for a happier, more empowered life comes down to the choices on how you see the world. See the negative and your days will follow with dread, uninspired anxious states.

See the potential, options and positive opportunities that surround you every single day… life will be the adventure you’ve always wanted.
