We don’t see things as they are we see things as we are – Carl Yung. We all have different views of the world, depending on our life experiences thus far, we can all share the same experience but feel it, view it and experience it in many ways.
In an un-resourceful way you could approach each perceived setback with the feelings of – stuck, blame, react, uncertainty, scarcity, hopeless, failure, fear, victim, excuses, judgement, problem, procrastination or in a resourceful way you could approach each new potential opportunity with taking action, finding a solution, getting different results, love, feedback, hope, abundance, clarity, choice or responsibility. Which is more empowering?
When you are in the above the line thinking state, it is being at effect for everything that happens in your life, it can empower you, allowing you to live your life on your terms, determined by you.
There is always a choice I believe in how you live your life, for me it’s about ownership, taking responsibility for my actions and taking control of my stuff!
I believe I cause all the effects in my world, I create everything that happens in my world. Whether that is true or not it does not matter, I know I produce better results when I believe it. As Teddy Roosevelt said “believe you can and you’re halfway there”
For example if you believe you’re shy there might be certain actions you won’t do, like taking opportunities to try new things, or just going out, dancing, talking to new people applying for certain jobs. However if you choose to believe that you create everything that happens around you and anything is possible and you can be anything you want, what kind of life do you think you will experience?
Now I know you have met people even have some friends that are more focused on the reasons why things aren’t happening in their lives instead of the results they could be getting! Their beliefs are determining what is possible for them in their life. What results are your beliefs achieving in your life?
Some people go through their entire lives at effect side of the equation with excuses you may be familiar with; about how it’s not their fault, they point at someone other than themselves at fault. Example I would have been a success except for my ex held me back or I would have been a success but my mum didn’t love me or I just didn’t get the right opportunity.
How satisfying is that? On the other hand, you could choose to believe you have the power of the results of everything that happens in your life, much more empowering.
