Growing Pains

Where you are right now, and I mean this very moment, is where you’ve put yourself through your thoughts, words and actions.

If you don’t like where you’re at be it a job, home, friends or spouse is exactly where you’ve put yourself. If you don’t like it then you need to change all three of the above.

Life is constantly showing us what we want and what we don’t want in order for us to be clearer on what it is we really do want. Our thoughts, words and actions dictate where it will lead.

Sometimes you end up not liking the situation you’re in or the people you’re hanging around with. That too is a choice that can be changed. It’s a teeter totter of deciding what you want with what you don’t want.

It would be nice if you only got what you want but sometimes you’re not so clear on it so the universe throws you situations at you to help you become clear. Going through things you don’t want helps you become clearer on what you do want so you can make better future decision.

For example, you would like to date a guy who’s good looking, has a nice physique and a totally hot car. You eventually end up dating the guy only to be disappointed because he spends all his extra time and money on the gym or fixing up his car.  After this experience you decide that quality time with the one you date is more important than your previous criteria. You got what she wanted only to find out it’s not what you REALLY want.  You now change your parameters for dating.  By getting what you don’t want you find out what you do want. It’s a blessing in disguise.

In a nut shell its growing pains, its life.

The Best Way to Predict the Future is to Create it

We live our life by default or by design, by chance or by choice. Which one would you rather have? Would you rather drift through life letting the circumstances that arise dictate your life or would you rather take the bull by the horns and steer it to where you want to go? You can.

 You have the power to make your life whatever you want it to be. Be the author instead of the reader. When given the choice, and it is your choice, most people would rather be in control of their destiny. It's not always easy; anything worth having doesn't come easily.

You must commit yourself to your cause and do whatever it takes to reach your goal. If the goal is to get a college education and along the way there are setbacks, take it for what it is, a setback not a give up. Keep the long term goal in mind. Bit by bit and day by day you will continue to get closer to your goal. In the process you will not have only achieved what you want, but in the end you will have gained something much more, confidence, determination, perseverance, and a sense of accomplishment. These are qualities that will be embodied in you and carry you through anything for the rest of your life. Now isn't that worth designing your life for?

What Do You Do for a Living?

You may have been asked that question several times. The usual response is to state what you do to earn a living which means your job. However, many years ago a professor of mine taught the class a lesson about life more that his course material provided when he replied “I like to write, read and occasionally hand out with friends.”  The class was taken aback at first because we didn’t get it. What he did was make a distinction between earning a living and what he did to live his life.  He had replied with the latter.

You see a lot of people define their living by how they earn a living instead of what they do for living their life.  It was a great lesson. I don’t recall the professor’s name or even the class he taught but I have remembered that life lesson for over 30 years.  It’s a lesson I have to remind myself of when I get to caught up in the busyness of life and need to remind myself to get back to what I enjoy doing. When you really get down to it, most of us earn a living so that we can enjoy the fruits of our labor by taking a vacation, purchasing the items that bring you joy, going out to eat with your friends or just doing nice things for the people in your life.

Does this happen to you?  Do you get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life?

Now, what do you do for a living?

Where Attention Goes Energy Flows

Isn't that so true? It doesn't matter what events may be happening in your life, if you see an opportunity for something you want, boom you’re on it, and everything else becomes secondary, link that now on a global scale. Where attention goes energy flows. What is happening right now in your world, poverty, economy, jobs, and war? Where is the attention?

In physics the Law of Attraction states that positive attracts positive while negative attracts negative. Basically, we get what we give. If your attention and thus energy is focused on war then that is what you are going to get more of, however if your attention is focused on peace that that is what you'll get. Currently the media has been focusing on a recession. What happens then? People start to hold onto their money expecting the worse thereby taking more money out of the economy. What do they get more of, a recession? There is less money flow.

 What do you want in your life and is it positive or negative? If you want peace, be peaceful. If you want more money, work on attracting it by learning from the people who have it. The same goes for the negative aspects in your life. If you're hanging around people who are trouble, then eventually you will attract that to your life even if you consciously don't want it. It's sad to say but its guilt by association. Assumptions will be made and then comes the self-fulfilling prophecy that, "'I might was well do it anyway because that's what people expect".

If you want a certain type of lifestyle or job you need to focus on it instead of your current situation. If you focus on your current situation then that’s what you’ll continue to have. Think of the saying, "The poor get poorer while the rich get richer". It’s what they attract. It's your choice; attract the positive or the negative.

What Are You Making More Important?

What do you make important in your every day decisions? Think about it. Every time you make a decision you are deciding what is more important to you. Take for example being late for work. What did you make more important; getting more sleep, looking better, or having something to eat? Something else was more important to you than getting to work on time. Take notice.

The same thing goes for the decisions you make throughout the day. Should you talk to this person first, run this report, check on a schedule change, or have lunch because you're famished. What did you give the top priority to? It's a notice for you to make about yourself.

This could be the reason things don't work out as you had planned, because you made something else more important. You lived your circumstances. What to do? The first step is to be aware of what you are doing. From there you need to decide what you can do in the future to make it work out better so that you life runs smoother.

If it Feels Good - Do it

When I refer to “feels” good I don’t mean in the physical sense but in the emotional sense.

When a thought comes to you about an action you should take ask yourself how it will make you feel. Does it feel right or are some negative, doubtful emotions tagging along for the ride? That’s your barometer. If it feels right, down to your core, then do it. Others may not agree with you but for you it’s the right thing to do. It means you’re in alignment with your inner Being. Conversely, if you have doubts it’s also your barometer telling you that something isn’t right, you may not be able to pinpoint your doubt, it’s just a gut feeling, but listen to it.  It’s your guidance system for your well being. It’s telling you not to do it. Listen to it.

The hardest part is actually stopping your forward movement to actually assess what your emotions or gut feeling is telling you. Life can be so busy going from one thing to another it’s not doable. However, I can honestly say that when I look back at my life and the choices I’ve made, my gut instinct was always right in the long run. It doesn’t mean I listened to it at the time. I brushed it off as being paranoid. Boy was I wrong.

And here’s another thing, when you have those positive, feel good emotions about an action, person or whatever, it means you’re in alignment with who you are. Go for it.

The Hard Times Pass Just Like the Good Ones Do

This is a lyric from one of Sugarland's songs and it fits so nicely into what your frame of mind is. Read it again. Often times a person will look at an event/situation in their life as a hard time compared to a normal time. However, you also have really good times when things are just clicking. You're at the top of your game. You’re in the zone. That time passes too.

An analogy I was told is to look at the hard times as clouds passing through. Some are big and some are small. When you realize that that is all it is, it becomes easier to handle it and therefore focus on the sunshine just up ahead. It could be a business venture that has hit a bump on its road to success or a relationship area that needs to be worked out. Take it for what it is, a cloud passing through.
