What’s the Magic Key to Unlock Your Potential?

YOU! You have the key.  The hard part is figuring out where the lock is. In addition, do you have what it takes to really look inside? If you do then you’ll tap into your full potential.

It’s about discovering and then discarding the beliefs that are not serving you and replacing them with ones that align with your true nature. It’s critical in order to change your results.

You need to take responsibility for your beliefs. That’s easier said than done because there are some that are so deep seated you may not even realize they’re holding you back. Identifying them is hard. Often you need to actively question them or have an outsider bring them to your attention. It means accepting personal responsibility for those beliefs as well as what caused them. Every choice and consequence, every thought, feeling or emotion you’ve experienced, the actions you’ve taken, every story you’ve told about yourself, others and life events. This includes the negative thoughts and feelings associated with those beliefs. All the above is the accumulations of your current life.

It’s the thought that’s sets everything in motion. Each thought, negative and positive shapes your beliefs about yourself others and what’s happening around you. The thoughts eventually become beliefs that manifest in your words and actions which then become your results. For example you may have grown up with parents who said things like, “Money doesn’t grow on tress”, We can’t afford that, or Get a good education, work hard and you’ll get ahead in life”.

All those statements will lead the receiver believing that money is hard to come by and you have to work hard to get it. I still struggle with this myself but I’m working on it.  Obviously that’s not true because look at all the celebrities who work just a few months a year and rake in millions of dollars. To top it off, some of them really aren’t that talented.

Work on changing your thoughts to produce positive beliefs that you really want to accomplish. You have and deserve to win the lottery just as much as anyone else. Believe you can. Now take action and go purchase a ticket. Ka..ching!

Offended? Get Over it

The experience of being offended isn’t occurring in the other person. It’s happening in you. The other person merely expressed their viewpoint. It is you who are taking offense. They are just being who they are.

All you can do is make the person aware of how you feel and hopefully the person would be more sensitive to your feelings. However, you can NEVER change someone else. When you realize how hard it is to change a habit in yourself (lose weight/stop smoking etc) what makes you think changing someone else would work?

Instead of working on changing another’s viewpoint, your time would be more wisely spent exploring what makes you so sensitive to another person’s viewpoint. Aren’t you secure in your own stance? Why should the opinion of someone else even matter to you? Have you ever run across someone who really could give a rip about what anyone thinks? I have and I must admit I’m a bit envious that they’re so oblivious to anyone else’s opinion. It’s actually refreshing.

There have been times when former co-workers and colleagues didn’t agree with me and for a brief moment it bothered me, but I didn’t dwell on it. Why should I? I know that the closest people in my life will still love me anyway even if they don’t agree with me. Therefore, anyone else’s opinion really doesn’t matter.

If you’re offended about something then you’ve just given your power away. You’re essentially allowing this other person’s opinion and comments to affect you and you have control over your emotions. I hate to say it but it basically means you’re not confident and secure about your stance on the issue at hand. It becomes easier to shift the blame and hence your power to another then to take responsibility for your own emotions.

If more people knew that that’s what they were doing they wouldn’t do it. They’d take a stand and control their reaction.  No one really has the power to offend anyone else. The soft spot is inside the receiver. The beliefs you hold are expressed in the stories you tell yourself. You don’t have to remain a victim of your stories.

Does this make sense?
