… not reread.

What’s your story? Is it serving you? Is it bringing you to the place you want to be in your life?

If not, STOP REREADING IT and START REWRITING IT.

You do not have to pack up your history and bring it forward into your destiny. But many of us do. 

We do it everyday that we decide we’re going to pack up our negative experiences, thought forms and limited beliefs and define ourselves by them. We do it when we decide that we are a VICTIM of our circumstances rather than a MASTER of them.

Here’s the SECRET: it lies in your perception.

Just because something is true for you, doesn’t mean it has to become your truth. You are in charge of what becomes real for you. And what you give your attention to is what becomes your reality. So, if it isn’t working for you, do not give it any attention and watch it fall away.

The story you tell yourself becomes the story of your life. If that story isn’t working anymore, stop rereading it and start rewriting it. A new chapter is waiting to begin. The question is — are you ready to write it or are you still rereading the last one?

… it’s the VIBRATION behind it that makes all the difference.

It’s not what you do, it’s WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU’RE DOING that determines the outcome. 

Everything is energy. Your thoughts are always creating your reality. If you do one thing, but THINK SOMETHING ELSE about it, you are undermining the very action you are taking.

Your thoughts must be aligned with the action you are taking or they will NEVER manifest. 

For example, if you are pitching new business and you give a presentation, but secretly feel unprepared or as if you don’t have the experience necessary or if you are worried you will never land the account, that vibration is what manifests because it is the dominant vibration you are offering. It is the energy you are putting out into the universe.

Action can only take you so far. Your vibration is what closes the deal. 

Don’t waste your time and energy on physical action alone. It is limiting. You can walk the walk, but if your “self talk” is negative, it will take you down. 

Energy is everything. It isn’t about the action that you take in life, it’s the vibration behind it that determines the outcome. What’s in your vibration?

… it was coming for you.

Have you ever been blindsided by an event? Was something taken away from you completely out of the blue?

If it was surprisingly ripped away from you and you never saw it coming; YOU WERE MEANT TO LOSE IT. 

As humans, we struggle with making the right decisions for ourselves. What if we let go of something and are left with immense regret? We might forever beat ourselves up if we make the wrong decision, right?

Here’s how your life works — if a decision is made BY YOU, you can forever regret it; but if a decision is made FOR YOU, know that THE UNIVERSE HAS CHOSEN IT.   

Free will can mess up a lot of stuff. Fate knows better.

Never lament something that is ripped away from you. Trust that universal forces are at play on your behalf. Whatever was taken off your path was NEVER going to stand the test of time.

When you never saw it coming, it was certainly coming for you. Look past the pain. Feel comfort in the decision that the universe made on your behalf. If it wasn’t right for you; it wouldn’t have happened to you. It may not feel very good at the time, but the wisdom of that decision will see to it that you be placed onto a much better path.

…working through them moves you forward.

Patterns are meant to be worked through, NOT REPEATED. If something is showing up in your life over and over again, it is the universe’s way of giving you ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY to work through the SAME SITUATION differently this time. 

But how many of us catch those patterns? Not many.

For most of us, we don’t even recognize patterns as being our life lessons, we see them more as COINCIDENCE. But there is no coincidence in the universe, there is only purpose. So, if something is repeating over and over again in your life, you’re meant to get the lesson from it and get out. 

Consciousness is about catching the pattern — learning the lesson — and moving up in life. Don’t spend your time repeating patterns, you’ll never go anywhere — spend it working through those patterns so you can move on to the rest of your life.

… your life KEEPS YOU unhappy.

It’s a vicious cycle.

Nothing and no one will bring you joy because your happiness can NEVER be found OUTSIDE OF YOU.

Happiness is an inside job but as humans, we project our need for happiness outside of us. We sit and wait for something to make us happy…

If I could just get that new job, I’ll be happy.

If I could just get that promotion, I’d be happy.

If I could just get the raise, I’d be happy.

If I could just close the deal, I’d be happy.

And so on…

But here’s the irony… no lasting happiness can be found outside of you — it’s fleeting. Once you get something you want, there will undoubtedly be something else that you’ll want in order to be happy. You’ll always want more therefore you’ll always end up chasing happiness. 

Start learning to change the way you are looking at things — when you learn to find the best in ANY situation, you’ll find the happiness it has for you. Every moment of your life offers you a small gift of happiness if you are conscious enough to see it.

But our tendency is to only look at things at face value — is it good or baddoes it makes me happy or sad? But life isn’t black or white — happiness exists in the shades of grey. And those shades are waiting to be defined each and every day by YOU.

When you are unhappy with your life, your life keeps you unhappy — it will continue to bring you situations that match your unhappy vibration. Happiness is an inside job — find any reason to be happy and let it raise your vibration. Like attracts like. When you learn to find ANY reason to be happy, the universe will bring you EVERY reason to be happy.

… before it gets better.

No one ever said making change is easy. Growth takes hard work.

To become a beautiful butterfly, you have to live through the dark phase of the cocoon.

Giving up and staying in the cocoon isn’t an option. The struggle to get free of the cocoon is the struggle of transformation. How badly do you want to transform your life? Accepting the status quo will never get you out of that cocoon. To get to the light, often times you have to fight your way through the darkness.

Transformation is a lifelong process; it doesn’t happen overnight. Transformation is a series of steps that tend to make things appear worse before they can become better. It’s like any detox process, in order to cleanse the body and heal, the infection or toxins need to first rise to the surface before they can leave the body. So the darkness is temporarily exaggerated before the light of transformation can prevail.

To become something great, you have to do something great. Being great means using your inner strength to fight your way through your own cocoon of darkness. Remember giving up is never an option. Just when the catepillar was ready to give up his struggle, he transformed into a beautiful butterfly and flew away.

3ec1ae597601dd29c238a7580ecf39ab… pick it up

If it upsets you, put it down.

Seems like common sense, right? But we tend to do the opposite.

We love to harbor negative thoughts and feelings and dwell on them until they become BIGGER than life. It’s human nature to obsess over what is not working/not making us happy. But that strategy never changes your situation. The only strategy that changes your situation is learning to change your focus.

What you focus on EXPANDS. So if you focus on happy thoughts, you increase happiness around you. But if you’re focused on negative thoughts, you perpetuate negative situations.

The way you FEEL is everything, because it determines your next experience.

Like attracts like. If you want happiness, you have to FIRST FEEL HAPPY, then you can attract happier situations/people into your life. If you focus on negativity, you’ll only get MORE of it.

If you don’t take responsibility for managing your emotions, they’ll run away with you, and you’ll always be at the mercy of whatever is happening around you. You’ll never find happiness there. Don’t wait for something outside of you to make you happy, find a reason to be happy within yourself and then watch the magic happen.

If it makes you happy, pick it up and put your focus on it; if it doesn’t, put it down, you don’t need it. Focusing on it will NOT make you happier.

Focus on HOW YOU WANT TO FEEL and your life will bring you more of the same. Aren’t you ready to be happy?
