"Imagine a new story for your life and start living it"
Do you ever feel as though your life is out of control? As though life is happening to you versus you directing your life?
This can be tedious and frustrating. You may ask yourself "Why does this keep happening to me?" I recommend you ask yourself, instead, "What am I missing or refusing to learn from this situation that keeps putting me back here." These two perspectives are examples of life happening to you versus you directing your life. When we keep ourselves in the role of helplessness, or the victim, we are essentially proclaiming to the world that we are not in control; therefore, we hold no responsibility in the outcome of our lives. This is simply not true.
What is true, is that we have no control over others, or the final outcome of an event; however, our thoughts, our actions, and our perception of the event play a major role in the final outcome.
When working with souls, one of the things I make them aware of is that they are in charge of their own destiny. Each soul decides what lessons they will learn before they come into human form, but your human self decides how you learn those lessons. Often times, we find ourselves in challenging situations that seem to be repeating themselves. You may have a boss with whom it is diffcult to deal, and this may be reminiscent of your last boss, and the boss before that one, and so on. When this happens, know that you are being allowed to learn a lesson, but your human self is the one putting you back in that situation over and over again in order to learn the lesson. The lesson may be for you to practice acceptance of others, or to address an issue you may have with authority. Your human self has used your work environment as the arena to learn the lesson, but every time you are faced with a challenging interaction with your boss, you become non-engaged, standoffish, or disrespectful. When you walk away from the interaction, you may feel even more frustrated, angry, or flustered with your boss, dreading the next interaction, rather than actively planning a new approach to interacting with your boss. You are not deliberately or consciously creating challenging interactions with your boss, and that is why it may seem as though you have no control over the situation, but you do. It begins with a new thought, which leads to a new understanding, which leads to a new behavior, which ultimately leads to a new pattern of interactions with your boss.
You are the creator of your destiny and your happiness. Once you realize how powerful you are, you can create the life you have always wished for. The time is now! Allow yourself to think new thoughts about a challenging situation you are facing, put more optimism in the outcome, and watch things unfold differently than they have before.
