It seems lately, that most people’s get-up-and-go, has got up and left. Many are feeling disrupted by changes never seen in their lifetime. The non-stop media runs continuous loops featuring stories of failed companies, abandoned careers, broken marriages, and uncertainty for a prosperous future. With that kind of buzz flying around, a perceived safety net has been removed and people have stopped in their tracks, frozen in fear, wondering and worrying what’s next, how to plan, where to go, and what to do?
Everyone adapts to and manages these changes differently. Some work more, harder, longer; others run and hide their fears through eating, drinking, sleeping or love relationships. Natural instincts compel us to resist the changes that come along because we don’t know what it will look like on the other side. That’s where the “if” in life comes through.
Have you ever noticed in the center of the word l-i-f-e there is “IF”? These powerful – and much needed – changes make everyone face the “ifs” in their lives. You choose whether that “if” sends you on an adventure or leads you to a dead end. Upon that “IF” you build your life.
IF I believe, I will receive. IF I trust, opportunities will come. IF you fill your mind with fear and doubt, you will experience struggle and suffering. The choice is yours.
Having a powerful perspective will allow you to have a positive mental attitude, which will allow your thoughts to be focused on your desires, and in turn your emotions will follow your thoughts. Before long you will be taking authentic action in the direction of your dream. Then voila! Magically the dream, once only an aspiration, is no longer a wish. It is a reality.
As Kevin Costner was told in “Field of Dreams”, “…IF you build it they will come.” What are you building with your “IF”? And who will be coming? Despite the resistance, believe in your dreams and your ability to do whatever you put your mind to. Allow yourself to dream despite what may be happening around you. Remember something Napoleon Hill said, “Most great people have achieved their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure.”
Allow your wishes to be the horses on which you ride into the life of your dreams.
