Worrying About Something

worry… practically guarantees that it will happen.

Worry is a useless emotion — it’s about fearing a negative outcome of a future event.

At its essence, worry is about using your imagination to create something YOU DO NOT WANT. 

Your imagination is meant to be used to create the life of your dreams but instead we use it to create obstacles to our own happiness.

You get what you focus on, whether you want it or not. If you are focused on the fear of a negative outcome of a future event, you are feeding energy into the potentiality of that outcome. In other words, you do not get WHAT YOU WANT by focusing on WHAT YOU DON’T WANT. 

If you are repeatedly focusing your energy on WHAT YOU DO NOT WANT, you are telling the universe to “bring it on.” Why put your energy there? Why not put your energy into the potentiality of a successful outcome?

When you feed fear, you undue yourself. When you feed success, you make it a reality.

Worry is learned behavior and can just as easily be un-learned. Worrying about something guarantees that it will happen. Take back your power and put it into the anticipation of a positive outcome of a future event and allow that outcome to manifest. Why would you want it any other way?

jake_edit… it’s NEVER in control of you.

We just forget that.

NO ONE and NOTHING has control over your life unless you give it to them. And why would you do that?

Your power is yours and it rests in your ability to focus your mind. Thoughts are powerful and your thoughts create your experiences. If you are unhappy with your current experience, CHANGE YOUR THOUGHT, and watch your experience change along with it.

Where you put your thoughts, you get more of. So ask yourself what you are focusing on? If it isn’t making you happy, TAKE YOUR FOCUS OFF OF IT and put it into a thought that feels slightly better. In record time, you’ll move the energy away from negative experiences and towards a new world of happier, more positive experiences.

Wherever you put your energy, you get more of. Ask yourself if you actually want it. If not, work to alter your thoughts so that you can create the life of your dreams. You can always have whatever it is you want in life, you just have to be able to align your thoughts with that highest vision while shutting out any other possibility.

You’re always in control of your life, it’s never in control of you. You get what you think about, whether you want it or not. Start consciously focusing your thoughts on the life of your dreams and it can only become a reality. What are you waiting for?

tumblr_lyqpffnjxs1qfet8co1_500… it’s HOW you go through it —

that makes ALL the difference in the world.

You always have a choice as to how you show up in life. It’s important to remember that everything is interrelated. Every action you take, every decision you make determines your NEXT experience.

Think before you act. Think before you put energy into motion. If you react negatively towards a situation, you’ll only succeed in drawing more negative circumstances to you. Whereas if you consciously react positively towards a situation, you’ll increase the likelihood of attracting more positive circumstances to you. It is the way the universe works.

We all go through difficult times, the question is HOW do you get through them? You always have a choice. You can either play the victim and blame others for your misfortune and become angry, resentful and jaded OR you can become the master of your life and learn to dance in the rain with acceptance, grace and trust.

All storms need to be weathered. How do YOU show up in the rain? Do you get soaked or do you learn to laugh your way through it? Crying in the rain ONLY gets you wet. Laughing your way through it ensures that the sun will come out again.

cryinggirlwallpaper6… it WOULDN’T be happening.

You’re never dealt a hand you are NOT able to play.

Your life exists in perfect orchestration. All situations that show up, show up for a reason. They show up because they need to be worked through. They show up because there is a key lesson in it for you. They show up to make you BETTER.

Don’t avoid them. Don’t lament them. Don’t get angered by those situations. Just put your head down and get through them the best way you know how. Trust the process of your life — if it wasn’t meant to be happening, it wouldn’t be happening. It’s NOT up to you to fight against what is happening, it is up to you to move through the experience and positively transform it.

When something is challenging you or frustrating you, HAVE AT IT. Don’t run away from it. Accept its presence, stand up to it, and allow it’s wisdom to wash over you. Don’t make it harder then it has to be. Don’t focus on the drama of the situation, focus on your ability to transform it. Before you know it, you will have learned what you needed to learn and a new and improved situation will very quickly show up in replacement. What are you waiting for?

Beating Yourself Up

o-person-with-head-in-hands-in-black-and-white-facebook… only brings you DOWN.

Where else could it bring you?

Being hard on yourself doesn’t make your life easier, it complicates things because it puts yourself in YOUR OWN WAY.

Life presents many challenges and when you’re hard on yourself, you add more challenge onto your plate and it’s self-inflicted. And for what? To make life harder? Why fight yourself? Why not work WITH YOURSELF to find solutions instead?

Regret is useless. You cannot change the past. But you CAN learn from it’s wisdom and make your future better for it.

Don’t spend time getting caught up in focusing on your faults/mistakes. Get the lesson from them and get out. Move forward and make your life better because of them. Great wisdom only comes from those faults/mistakes; they make you better. But if you beat yourself up over them, you use them as a weapon to take yourself out. And why would you use the experience that made you better as an excuse to sabotage yourself?

Recognize that wisdom comes from our mistakes. Don’t spend time beating yourself up. Spend that time applying the learning and your life will blossom in the most amazing ways.

sn_pencil_340… you BREAK.

There’s only so much you can take.

Life wields us many challenges and one needs to be able to weather those challenges without breaking down.

Here’s the deal… Things are not always going to go as planned. And that has to be ok. Learn to be flexible. Learn to go with the flow. Learn to move with the current of your life and not against it. If something is NOT happening the way you want it to, recognize that there is always a reason why and yield to that current. In time, you will see that everything is always working out for you even if seems to not make sense in the moment. And realize that if it wasn’t meant to be happening to you, it wouldn’t be happening. 

Trust the process of your life and yield to the winds of change, especially if they frighten you. Don’t resist those winds, don’t fight against them, you will only get snapped in half or uprooted completely and tossed aside.

Be flexible when things do not work out the way you want them to and just know that behind the scenes, they are always preparing to work out even BETTER than you ever even imagined. It’s just the way life works.

peoples-reactions… is about THEM, not you.

Everyone comes to the table with their own story. They live and breathe their story everyday and when your worlds collide, they will always react to you from that place deep within their story. It is very difficult for them to get outside their story and show up differently.

But here’s the deal… Their story is NOT your story. So even though they might be reacting to you (or something you’ve done), you are NOT responsible for their reactions. They are. 

But it’s hard to remember that when someone’s losing it with you! Just remember that people can only respond from their own experience (their own story) and it’s very possible that THAT might not match your experience. And that has to be OK.

People live and die by their stories. But their stories don’t have to become yours. What you buy into is yours. If their story doesn’t match yours, don’t buy into it. Smile and walk away. You don’t need to be a pawn in their story. Their reactions to you are never about you — but you can always make them about you. But why would you do that? Don’t you have enough work managing your own story? Keep your stories separate and you’ll never again be confused by other’s reactions to you.
