Posts Tagged ‘what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’

experience… it’s there to teach you something.

Otherwise it wouldn’t be happening.

Nothing ever shows up around us that doesn’t somehow reflect what’s going on inside of us. Believe it or not, all events that occur in our lives are our barometers for what we need to work on.

People mistakenly think that they are disconnected from the drama and complications in their lives. They feel that somehow these events are just happening to them and that they are innocent bystanders. Nothing ever shows up in your life that doesn’t have a reason for being. Nothing. Events happen in our lives for many reasons, some of which to:

– bring to light an issue that needs to be worked through

– change direction on your path and open you up to something new

– make you stronger and give you the tools to strengthen your coping mechanisms

– slow you down/stop you in your tracks and get you to focus on what is right in front of you instead of what you are chasing

Needless to say, if it is showing up in your life, it is on YOUR path and it is meant for YOU to experience. So make the most of the experience and realize that you are not a victim of the events in your life, you are the master of the program. Start applying consciousness to your life. Ask yourself why these events might be happening? What are you meant to get out of them? What are you needing to learn or change or grow from? Consciousness helps you to take responsibility for your life. Once you take responsibility and own your life, the rest is simply a walk in the park.

CS2142402-02A-BIG… and what have YOU learned?

As Socrates said, “the unexamined life is not worth living.”  This is the truth but how many of us actually take the time to look back at the year gone by and ask ourselves what it is we learned?

Truth is, we are in too much of a rush to get the New Year started that we seldom look back and reflect upon the situations/people that helped get us to where we are today.

It is only in looking back (briefly) and learning from the past that we can build a better future. Yes, the unexamined life is NEVER worth living.  So, lets live differently. Take stock of what you learned last year, where you are now and what you want out of life this coming year. That will help to make all the difference in the world.

Do you want things to get better? It’s up to you to make those improvements. Ask yourself…

What worked for me last year?

What didn’t work?

What do I need in my life that I do not currently have?

What behavior served me well?

What behavior didn’t serve me at all?

What would I change if I could?

Answering these questions reflects the difference between consciously walking forward in life and passively sleepwalking your way through it. Which one do you want to be doing? Here’s the deal, if we do not learn from our past, we are destined to repeat it.

Time to get the learning. Do you want to walk into the new year awake, alive and conscious or do you want to continue sleepwalking? It’s a new year and the choice is always yours. Happy New Year!
