TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR LIFE
How many of you have just been an observer of life instead of a participant? Life is meant to be lived. If you sit on the sidelines, you will miss out on whatever opportunities may come your way.
Maybe you don't know where you would like life to take you. At least you have that awareness. The question is, what can you do now? Try to imagine the life you would like to have. Think of whatever dreams you may have had along the way. That's a good starting point. Where do you go now?
Whatever brings you joy is the path to follow. The writer, Joseph Campbell, said to follow your bliss. That is the way to freedom. That is the way to finding the life you wish to possess.
It's not to say that you won't have stumbling blocks along the way. That's just life. The question is what can you do with those in order to keep heading in the direction you desire.
Start by appreciating whatever blessings you currently have in your life. There is a spiritual law in the universe that, by starting with appreciation, you will attract more blessings into your life.
Replace doubt with faith. Let go of your fears. They are the only things stopping you from moving ahead.
Try journaling. Just let your thoughts flow. It will be amazing what you may uncover.
Focus on whatever goals you may have. If you don't have any, consider the gifts that you possess. That is a good starting point. We are all unique and we all have our own precious gifts. We are creative energy just waiting to express itself.
Resistance is not the answer. You need to allow life to unfold. Stop judging yourself. That's not to say that you shouldn't take a look at whatever obstacles have prevented you from moving forward. Perhaps you have an addiction. Perhaps you are unknowingly allowing your past to repeat itself.
There is a solution to every problem. In fact, there is usually more than just one. Live in the solution instead of the problem. That's the way to find freedom.
Pray if that is your habit. Perhaps you might meditate. Talk to others and ask them to point out your strengths. Focus on the positive. The more you do so, the more you will move in that direction.
The important thing is to affirm whatever qualities you possess or wish to possess. Believe that you possess them now. You will be amazed at the results. Nothing will happen unless you apply yourself. You deserve it.
Stop your complaining. It's time to live. Take responsibility for your life. You are worth it! Dreams do come true.
