“It’s not what you are that holds you back, it’s what you think you are not.”- Denis Waitley
In the world of life’s occurrences…
there’s a lot to be said about what happens to us coming from inside influence vs outside conspiracy.
It’s a tough pill to swallow. It’s far easier to wave a flag of victimhood claiming no control than to turn our attention within…to discover precursors of thought preceding outside events.
And, that’s one possible way to live life: at effect.
Yet, if that game isn’t working, we at least have another option, another card to play, such as “Hmmm…now why in the heck might I have brought this about? What’s there for me to learn in this?”
Of course, we still have to deal with whatever it is at hand that we wouldn’t have ever consciously chosen to come about. Yet, going this route, we have more of a voice or play in the game.
One’s “self” image, and associated beliefs, is often the culprit behind what appears to be unappealing circumstances and situations. The good news is that we can always “image up” if we choose.
When my son was little, we played video games together which gave us an opportunity to “Power Up!” (I still hear the audio in my head) so as to elongate our game or play with more force and gusto.
Consider that your greatest impact on your life’s goals, dreams and plans playing out as you’d like comes from the time and attention you give to imaging yourself up to meet them. As within, so without.
