And so out we go into the world trying to accumulate more. Trying to have more people like and accept us. Trying to prove we are worthy.
We have been taught that this is the way of success, of happiness and fulfillment. And we’re always looking outside of ourselves for the secret to getting what we need and the answers to where we might have gone wrong if life isn’t moving along at the pace we’ve been told it should.
By a certain time in life we ‘should’ have a certain level of success, and a certain level of monetary worth. And happiness is something that we can acquire, as though it were stocked on a supermarket shelf, waiting for us to drop in and buy it.
And so we live our life according to the opinions and beliefs of someone else. Often those we don’t know and who certainly don’t know us.
Programmed for life
So many of us have been programmed to accept limitations imposed on us by outside forces when we were children. We were told what we were incapable of or what we should never aspire to. And a concept of who we are was formed.
A concept that has lead us to exactly where we are today and to every event and relationship that we have experienced. The beliefs you accepted as a child have been used to create your current and previous experiences of life. And those beliefs have been added to over the years by society and by world views that you’ve simply accepted as true.
You are not stuck in these programs unless you agree to be. You can feel sorry for where you are and what you have or you can motivate yourself to let go and move into greater awareness which leads to new life events and experiences.
No matter how long you’ve walked a path that doesn’t lead to the destiny you dream of, when you choose new ideas from which to think and new actions to take, the universe moves to your aid.
Take a step in a new direction and allow the magic of life to flow.
You have nothing to prove. You were born worthy. You were created worthy.
Here’s one of my favourite videos from Wayne Dyer on the topic. Listen to it every day for thirty days…repetition creates movement. It’s time to step into the magnificent life you were born to live.
Encourage one another.
