One of the things that makes life worth living, is showing people, especially Baby Boomers, how to overcome limiting beliefs. Having goals and striving to attain them no matter your age, adds purpose and meaning to your life. To be without personal goals is to live a groundhog existence, where every day is the same as the day before. Days filled with meaningless activities designed to eat time, is like dying a slow death.
Watching days go bye, endlessly fighting that nagging feeling that there has to be more. Constantly at war within yourself, feeling that there has to be more to life. Fighting that nagging feeling of despair that you’ve left something undone. To live out your “retirement” with these types of thoughts going through your head, is stressful not to mention hard work.
To watch TV endlessly, constantly comparing yourself to both real and fictional characters. Being contemptible of the real people, sharing their beliefs and viewpoints, while being sympathetic and identifying with the fictional characters whose make believe lives help you to escape, even if its just for a few hours, the mundane monotony of yours. Believing that this is all that your capable of, sitting in front of a box full of illusions.
You Should be on TV
Ever consider why it isn’t you up on that screen, reading that script, or pontificating about something you believe in. Your just as good-looking, even better than some, and your opinion is just as viable, if not more so than theirs. So why are you here and not there? It’s because you believe, deep down that your either not smart enough, not good enough or not deserving enough to be up there.
You have become willing to sit idly bye and watch others manifest their dreams, while yours stay buried deep in the recesses of your mind. It’s only because you’ve convinced yourself that your not capable. For years, you’ve bombarded your subconscious mind with negative self talk that your not enough. Even now your subconscious is telling you your not healthy enough, or smart enough or deserving enough. Yet everyday you watch people, just like you, manifest their dreams, right in front of you.
What’s their Secret?
They have empowering beliefs about themselves and the world. For a number of reasons they have formed empowering beliefs, where you have formed dis-empowering ones. They seem to know, what a lot of us have forgotten. That we are creations of a divine intelligence built in its image, with all its capabilities and talents. That we have been placed in a Universe that has one main purpose, and that’s to grow man. Given free will to believe whatever we want, our divine mind works 24/7 manifesting that belief into the neutral Universe, that’s been designed to provide whatever we believe we are worthy of.
When did you Start Believing
Whenever you decided to believe the dis-empowering beliefs you been holding is unimportant. What’s important today be that you are aware. And with awareness can come change. Your divine mind is capable of doing anything you believe it can do. Once you realize that the life your living is because you chose it, you can choose to change it. if, your not happy than your not living God’s Will for yourself. God’s Will is for you to be happy and grow prosperous.
Why does a tree grow effortlessly, in a forest, that from above looks like a massive parkland designed by master gardeners. It’s because it has no dis-empowering beliefs about being a tree. Why don’t you see any starving birds. They don’t worry about the Universe not providing they believe it will.
if, your not happy than change it. Stop beating yourself up that its taken so long, realize that everything that has happened in your life had a reason, and it got you here, now. Be thankful, its part of the journey, your journey. It doesn’t matter when you wake up, just that you wake up.
Stop Limiting Yourself
Limiting yourself and living an unfulfilled life is actually harder than manifesting the life of your dreams. To constantly be judging and comparing yourself to others is extremely hard and destroys your body. Instead of wasting time doing that, look for what your passionate about. What gives you pleasure and enjoyment, what would seem like play to you than figure out a way to make money doing it. Allan Watts said ” that the goal of every man is to get paid to play”. Find that passion and show others how they can do it to if they believe it strong enough.
Stop being the victim to your own dis-empowering beliefs. Design a life that makes you happy. You can start now. Change happens in the now, start small and work outwards.
Where to Begin
Start with your words, both how you speak to yourself and others. Watch for those self-defeating terms, and eliminate any demeaning comments. By being aware of your words and how you’ve’e been talking to yourself and others, you can shift the most powerful thing you have into your favor, your word.
Start by saying the opposite of what you normally say, start asking people how their day is going, and be interested in how they respond, how they sound, take notice. Start looking everyone in the eye and start forcing yourself to smile.
Stop making assumptions that you know what others are thinking. Stay focused on your own thinking. Think how can I be of service, how can I make this time better. How can I ease someone burdens.Be that ray of sunshine in a cloudy day. Quit the debating society, stop being so concerned about the world out there and worry about the world in here, your mind.
Quite the static, be aware of discordant sounds and noise create peace. Start noticing what brings negativity to your mind and start eliminating it, item by item.
Don’t take it Personal
Become aware that anything anybody says or does to you is’isn’t about you, its about them. They are playing their role and your only a character in their movie. If they have decided your the villain in their show there is nothing you can do to change the directors mind. Stay true to yourself and try not to get sucked into their drama. Again it does’isn’t have anything to do with you, its all an illusion.
Do your Best
You can only try to do your best. Realizing that we are by nature imperfect. We learn by experience, and some lessons take a long time, a very long time. But when we are ready than we will know. Don’t get down because you continue to fail to live up to your expectations, understand that the most critical judge you ever face is yourself. Missing the mark doesn’t mean your bad it only shows that your human. Realize that and take better aim. With this awareness you give yourself space. Notice how impatient you are with yourself
It’s all a part of the journey. Our imperfections are how we judge perfection. Without them we would have no way to measure, and we would not see growth. We all grow at our own rate, wishing it could be different isn’t going to make us grow any faster, as a matter of fact it retards growth. Take sustenance in progress, be aware how far you’ve’e come from where you were and enjoy the journey.
They say the worst thing you can do is die with your dream inside you. Being aware that the only one stopping you is that person in the mirror. Isn’t it about time that you and him start working together?
As always, thanks for visiting. Dave
