Choose

Do you ever sit and wonder how some people seem to have it so easy?  How they seem to make things materialize out of thin air?  I do, a lot.  Where you are in your life right now, is a direct reflection of your beliefs and perspective.  You welcomed the job you work in, the people you’re friends with, the family you love, the relationship you’re in, the health and energy of your body all with your beliefs.

Whether your job/work seems and feels perfect (great!) or you hate it, you’re the one to blame/thank. Think about it.  How did you end up in the working situation you’re in?  You at some point made the belief in your mind what you’re worth right now.  If it’s a job you love, most likely you decided that it was possible and probable for you to go out and find a work environment that really suits you and feels great. So when you searched out work opportunities, you opened the doors of possibility to these types of situations.  But if you’re in a job you hate, you most likely went out with the belief that you HAD to take whatever you could get.  So feeling desperate, and that you have no real value you took the job you NEEDED.

How about the relationship you’re in?  Was this someone you really sought out because you really enjoyed being with them, respected them, and was very attracted to?  Or is this someone who (for lack of better words) just fills a need?  If you have a strong sense of personal worth, and feel very comfortable as who you are, you most likely approached relationships as a possibility to truly find someone you wanted, and believed you could be happy with.  So you were able to sort through some of the temptation of just picking someone, anyone who you could be with until you found that match.  On the other hand, if you are someone who sees themselves as lucky to get anyone, or if you have ever said “who would want to be with me,” you’re more likely to “settle,” for anything that comes along.  Don’t, you are better than that, I’m better than that, and we all deserve a relationship that makes us feel great about who we are, and who we can become all at the same time.

The point I’m trying to make here is that your life is what you believe it can be.  There are no doubt things that come your way that will cause you to doubt, and question who you are and what you’re capable of.  These are the moments where we can expand our beliefs and open more doors to more opportunities.  In a world filled with so many potential hurdles, why would you want to make those challenges even larger by weighing yourself with personal doubt?

I’m always amazed when telling some people just what they’re capable of, how they want to argue with me.  I’ll tell them they can truly do anything they want, and they can surely handle whatever they’re facing.  They (I do this as well, I’m working on it) want to push back, and tell me all the reasons why I’m wrong.  They can’t do it.  They won’t be able to do it.  Who cares if you can’t do it, if you don’t believe you can, you’ll definitely NEVER be able to.

I’ve found in the end that I can’t control what happens in the world around me, but I can always control my perspective and outlook.  I choose to believe I can have everything I want, and in the end that is my greatest asset.  With that, anything is truly possible.

One response to “Choose”

  1. Bradley Woods says :

    You got it right in the last paragraph when you said that everyone has a “choice”. A choice to control your thoughts and live the life of your dreams, or letting your thoughts run rampant and life controls you. This is a gem of a post here!
