Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth. ~ Marcus Aurelius
Big changes are always afoot in life. And when change is hard, remember that even when things don’t seem to be getting any easier you are getting stronger.
We all have those days. The ones where everything is hard, where it seems as though we’re doing everything we should be doing and still nothing works. The ones where it’s easier just to hide under the covers.
If this is you, and you haven’t made it to where you wanted to, and progress seems slow or non-existent, remember when things are at their darkest, there’s only one thing to be done, look for the light. Get out there and don’t let anything stop you from shining.
It’s never too late
Huge changes aren’t easy and comfortable and they’re not always pretty. In fact it’s a chaotic, challenging, scary process.
But it’s never too late to start again. If you’re not happy with yesterday there’s nothing stopping you from doing something different today. If you’re not living a life you can be proud of…change it.
It’s never too late to be the one you’d love to be. The one you’re capable of being.
I’m right slap bang in the middle of big changes with this site, which means big changes in me too. Keep your eyes peeled for the slow transformation as we evolve, beginning with a new name!
Always look at where you’ve been and how far you’ve come, what you have rather than what you’ve lost, who you are compared with who you were. Because it’s not the struggle or the fear or the difficulties that count…it’s the attitude you have that determines how well everything turns out.
Here’s a few reminders to help get control of your life and cultivate attitudes that spark extraordinary results.
1. Attitude to love
Don’t seek to find someone to love you. Seek someone worthy of your love. Today, love yourself enough to expect the best in every relationship. This is the time to shape your relationships, to feel and believe you are the most blessed person in the whole world.
Set your standards high. Love, value, and respect yourself. Lose the mindset that allowed you to waste your precious life with the wrong person. Remember that your attitude together with your choices are making your life. You deserve to be with someone who is kind, nurturing and loving. Don’t settle for anything less.
The heart of all great love stories is in their spirit based consciousness, which is a mindset that doesn’t need to hold on to past hurts, wounds, or hurt feelings but always moves forward toward growth and greater emotional connection. Keep in mind that you deserve the best and keep moving toward it.
2. Attitude to self
The caretaker of your joy and happiness is you. Stop putting your power into the hands of others. Be joyful, be happy because you choose to.
Don’t let anyone control the way you see yourself, or the attitude you have towards you or your life.
You don’t have to live within the confines of how others see you. It’s your job to live your life, not theirs.
Become passionate about your desires, your vision for your future. The most important relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. Decide to be the kind of self you’re happy to live with…always.
Commit yourself to growing, changing, living life with a zest that is all yours. Don’t be afraid of looking silly, or being disapproved of. Choose to thrive, choose to be kind, compassionate, generous of spirit and you’ll not only have a better life yourself, but you’ll be making our world a better place.
Create your own place in this world, that is perfectly you.
3. Attitude to money
Have you noticed that anyone who believes themselves to be lacking financially needs no help from anyone to experience it?
A lack of money is simply the result of all the beliefs you have about money and finances.
If you struggle to pay bills, and live from paycheck to paycheck it’s pretty clear your financial thermostat is set to low.
Don’t be stuck in scarcity. Break out. Get yourself an abundant money mentality with a shift in attitude, and change your money thermostat for good.
Create an automatic mantra. One of mine is that I send success, happiness and well being out with every dollar. Try it, you have everything to gain and nothing to lose.
Get your money game together. Play cashflow – it’ll help change your view of money, spending and investing…plus it’s fun. I’m making it easy, I’ve added the link…now there’s nothing to stop you!
Try YNAB for a quick change in perspective and attitude. YNAB stands for ‘You need a budget’…you’ll be amazed at what can happen in only one month.
But remember, your most powerful asset is your mind, you can train it to view wealth as a good thing. You can be both happy and rich.
Focus on seeing money as energy. Playing cashflow is fun and useful, beginning with YNOB is a wonderful way to manage your current experiences, but they all pale into insignificance compared to the benefit that a rich spirit gives you. It supports you in living a rich life.
It’s time to realize that without you money is useless. You are the one with the power, you are the one who determines how money will be used. Take control of your money thermostat and turn it up a few notches.
Become more conscious of the good money can bring, and you’ll come to realize you’re richer than you think.
4. Attitude to success
Rewrite your agreement with reality.
An empowered perspective helps you see that the world isn’t always what you think it is.
Your past experiences might have entirely different meanings than the ones you’ve given them. Remember, success depends much more on attitude than your capabilities.
When you act and feel successful and behave as though it were so you’ll discover that soon it becomes so. But first define what successful means to you. Whatever your definition, at the end of the day the greatest success you’ll ever experience is being successful as a human being.
Don’t ever worry what others are doing, you’re not competing with them, you’re being better than you were yesterday. Free yourself from judgement and comparisons. Seek to follow nature. The most beautiful things in nature aren’t concerned with whether something else is blooming better than they, they just bloom the best they can where they are.
Decide to shine as brightly as possible, there can never be too much light in our world and if you keep your eyes open you’ll find inspiration and motivation in other people’s ideas through articles, books and seminars that can help you put your whole heart into who you are. You’ll do better than most, there’s so little competition for living wholeheartedly.
One last thought
If you’re stuck in the process, turning your accidental attitudes into intentional ones will help you feel more positive and confident about all the possibilities that lie ahead. Your attitude to the circumstances of life will make your experiences much worse or much better than at first it might have seemed.
Embrace a new attitude to ensure you’ll reach the end result you desire.
Don’t stay stuck. We can all do better.
