Getoutoftheway… helps life to flow MUCH EASIER.

But somehow we’re always getting in the way of ourselves. We make things harder then they need to be.

You’ll know that you’re in your own way because you’re trying to FORCE AN OUTCOME which is currently unavailable to you. In other words, there’s something in your life that you are trying hard to secure (a relationship, job, housing situation, etc… ) but unfortunately it’s NOT materializing with ease.

So what do you do? Most of us naturally try HARDER, it’s human nature to do so and that’s an appropriate response, but to what end? If you find yourself in a situation where you’re continually trying and trying to force an outcome and it’s still eluding you, BACK OFF and recognize that there’s a reason why you are being held back from that outcome. Accept that in this moment, there’s a better outcome for you that hasn’t yet been discovered.

Continually pushing past resistance doesn’t bring you what you want faster, it just exhausts you. That resistance we run into is very purposeful. It’s in place to safeguard us from achieving a desired outcome that isn’t right for us.

Be careful what you wish for. If you push hard enough, you just might get it. And if it isn’t the right thing for you, you’ll soon realize that you didn’t really want it after all.

Get out of the way of yourself and let what’s right for you, find it’s way to you. Stop thinking you have all the answers. We seldom do. Stop fighting to make something happen and let life bring you what is meant to happen. You may be pleasantly surprised.

stepping-backward… not backwards.

Bet you didn’t know that.

Setbacks are a necessary step along the path of life. They are your indication that the path you’ve been traveling is no longer working for you.

A setback literally STEPS YOU BACK from moving ahead in a given direction. It forces a timeout to get still within yourself and take stock of the direction you are going. A setback is never a punishment to who you are, it’s a recalibration of the path you’ve been traveling.

If you experience a setback, the universe is clearly telling you that it is NOT in your best interest to proceed in that direction. It helps to clarify that it is NEVER a SETBACK but a STEP BACK in order to take stock of where you are/where you are going. The STEP BACK puts your life momentarily on PAUSE. That pause is very purposeful because it demands that you re-chart a new path which is much better suited to your needs and desires.

The setback is NEVER SETTING YOU BACK. It’s only SETTING YOU UP for a much better path, if you can heed it. Setbacks move you forward, not back. Recognize that the setback is a protection against moving in the wrong direction, so allow it to guide you towards a new direction which will be more satisfying for you. You are never being SETBACK in your life, you are only being SET UP for the future that awaits you – you only need to allow yourself to be open to it.

How People Treat You

How people treat you… is about THEM and where they are in their life.

It’s NOT about you.

How you REACT is about YOU.

The way people treat you is more a reflection of who they are and where they are in their life at that moment, then it’s ever about you. But we tend to make it about us. 

You can never control how someone treats you, but you can always control how you react to them and that’s your only job.

As long as you are accepting responsibility for your life and your actions and you are consciously showing up as the best version of yourself everyday, then you’re being YOUR BEST YOU and no one can ask more of you.

How people treat you says more about where they are in their own level of consciousness and that is a playing field that you do not have to play in. Stay in your own field. Own your own behaviors, strive to be the best YOU everyday and if it isn’t good enough for someone else, realize that it’s most likely because they aren’t feeling good enough about themselves.

Stay in your own playing field. How people treat you is NEVER about you, it’s always about them. Let them learn to manage their own playing field and more importantly, keep them out of yours.

If You Are Unhappy

12c23ceab2f35d940acde79fb1ac500f… CHANGE your thought.

Yes, it is just that simple. Your thoughts determine your reality. What you think, you create, whether you want it or not.

The only way towards pure happiness is to focus your intent on finding happiness in your life. If your life is filled with thoughts of sadness and despair, you will never find it.

You get what you focus on, so if you are focused on negative thoughts, those are the thoughts that become activated within you and then those are the thoughts that in turn create your reality. Because our lives always follow our thoughts, it’s important to steer them in the right direction.

Life never happens to you, it happens by you. You’re co-creating every moment with every thought you expend. If thoughts are troubling you, STOP THEM and replace them with happier thoughts. Your attention to your happier thoughts ultimately create a happier environment which magnify happier circumstances directly into your life.

Do you want be happy? Stop feeding thoughts that make you unhappy. Just focus your attention on thoughts that make you happy and that which makes you happy will be brought right to you. Focusing on better feeling thoughts always creates better feeling experiences. When you are ready to focus on happy thoughts, the universe is ready to send you those happier experiences.

th… because you’re always on your way somewhere else.

In other words, where you are is always just a stop over to where you want to be. It’s part of the process of exploring who you are.

Finding yourself is a lifelong process – you are on a journey – one step at a time. And during that journey, you never stay anywhere very long. You only stay long enough to learn something new. That is because the nature of life is to change and evolve. So recognize that where you are in your life is NEVER permanent, therefore don’t get caught up in the drama of not being exactly where you want to be. There is always something new waiting around the corner for you.

Life can change on a dime. No sense in beating yourself up for not having everything that you want in this moment. In due time, you’ll have all the experiences that you need to help you find who you are.

Look at it this way, life is like a planned holiday to 5 different European cities. You’ve carefully planned this itinerary (of life) before you were born. Just because you do not like city #1 doesn’t mean you have to shut down and get frustrated because you are not yet at city #4. You can sit back and appreciate city #1 for what it gives you, knowing that you are moving on in the next day or so. Remember that in your life, you will always have more cities to explore. You are never finished exploring cities until you are finished exploring your life.

You are where you are and that’s ok. You are always just passing through and if where you are doesn’t feel good, know that you are on your way to something much bigger and better. You just need to allow yourself to get there. Don’t stay stuck in city #1 feeling bad for yourself. Know that the journey of exploration is ahead of you. Learn what you can from this moment and recognize that you do not have to stay in this place. You want to explore the other 4 cities, don’t you? Just because you are not there yet, doesn’t mean those cities don’t exist. Trust that they are ahead of you and pick yourself up out of the city that you are done with and find the strength to move forward. The rest of your life is ALWAYS ahead of you. On to the next city of your life!

th-1… rewrite a new one.

We all have our own stories about our lives – past, present and future. But what we don’t realize is that we are in control of those stories. If we feel they are limiting us or holding us back, we can rewrite them and give them a new ending.

You are never controlled by your story, you are the author of it and it’s yours to rewrite over and over again. In other words, you’re never limited by the circumstances of your life, because you’re creating them at every juncture. So if you do not like how your story’s been playing out, reframe it, see it from a different perspective, one which empowers you, rather than disempowers you.

Just because something is true, doesn’t mean it has to become your truth. If it doesn’t fit your vision of who you are/who you want to be, then rewrite it. You may not be where you want to be in your life, but that doesn’t mean you have to accept being in a hole either.

Is your glass half empty or half full? It’s the same glass with the same water content, the only difference is the story you have given it. And the story you’ve given it always determines its outcome.

Learn to hold the highest story of yourself. Don’t allow yourself to be limited by your shortlist of shortcomings. Your glass is always half full, and if it’s not, rewrite the story until it is. How you see things is HOW THEY WILL SHOW UP FOR YOU. The stories we tell ourselves inevitably become our reality whether we want them to or not.

Nobody wants to hear the same story over and over again, especially if it’s a story of victimhood. You are only limited by the story you tell yourself. So, if your story is holding you back from greatness, rewrite it until it brings you the greatness you deserve.

th… brings it RIGHT TO YOU.

Detaching from it, dissolves it for you.

Which sounds like the path of least resistance?

We have it wrong in our society, we continually FIGHT AGAINST what we DON’T WANT in our lives. But in doing so, we actually feed energy to the very thing we don’t want.

So, if there is something in your life that you do NOT want, do NOT give it any attention at all. Detach from it. Take back your energy and don’t feed energy into your thoughts of resistance, anger, worries or fears of it happening. Just re-focus your thoughts on something else. When you re-focus your thoughts, you put the energy into a different arena and what you are resisting slowly dissipates from your reality.

Thoughts need energy to become real. And you are always in control of whether or not you make any thought real. Take back your power and put your energy ONLY into the thoughts you want to experience in your life. Fighting against something makes sure you get it, detaching from the mere thought of it assures that it will NEVER make its way into your existence. Which way would you prefer to live?
