TRAVEL BACK IN TIME
What would you do if I could provide you with the opportunity to travel back in time and re-take a very poor choice that you made somewhere in your past? Would you grasp such opportunity with both hands? Would you still accept my offer if I added that you will be allowed to make a different choice, but then you lose everything that happened to you since that fateful day.
You will lose all the money you earned, the friends you made and all the other things that you participated in since that fateful day. Do you feel convinced that your life would have turned out so much better if you decided differently on that fateful day? Can you with a high degree of certainty say that your life would have been much better than it turned out for you up to now?
Most people hesitate when I ask them this question because they do not want to take the risk of the alternative choice and the unknown that they will be force to travel in. What people often forget is that they start each day with the unknown staring them in the face. The day becomes what they make of it. The quality of your life is decided by the quality of the choices that you make.
We sometimes make wise choices and our boat of life travels on calm waters for a while, but sometimes we make poor decisions and end up getting beaten to a pulp by the force of the waves of life. The real key to life is to accept that you will never be able to make wise choices all the time. You will remain an apprentice human until the day you die. You can read all the books you can lay your hands on and will still be face with the unpredictable.
The only sure thing in life is that you will never reach a permanent safe harbor. You will never be fully out of danger and could fall prey to an endless number of things every second that you are alive. There will be very little benefit in going back to retake your perceived poor decision. Soon after you made the perceived “right” choice your life will begin to gravitate in the same direction you find yourself in today.
You might as well accept that life is not fair and that the only way to live is to give each moment the best you have. You are making up your life story as you go along. You must begin to believe in yourself and know that you will be able to take care of whatever you are confronted with.
NO MORE “IF ONLY” HARD LUCK STORIES
It is easy to look back on your life and to search for excuses for your bad lucks and touch breaks. You can sit and feel sorry for yourself all you like. Nothing will get better or change if you do not accept the fact that “shit happens” all the time and that it is part of being alive. You will never reach a stage where you will be able to feel really secure and tranquil. You will be faced with changes and problems until the final day you spend on this troubled plane.
Most people that “role play” that they love and respect you are doing it for the benefit that they have of being associated with you. You are fooling yourself if you think that most people that are currently playing in your game of life really care about your feelings, emotions and dreams. They might not even know it themselves, but they are connected to you because there is some kind of benefit for them in the deal.
Wake up and smell the coffee my friend. You are the only person that can do something about your fate. You can engineer your life into a ditch or a million dollar home. You are in for a nasty surprise if you continue to wait for others to make life happen for you, You will one day find out that a large number of the people that attended your parties and drank your wine are nothing more than human parasites. They feed off your energy, money, insecurity or some other benefit that their association with you brings them. You will one day discover how most of these rats jump ship when your boat of life begins to take in too much water.
Everybody has a dream and anyone can prosper. You just need a plan that works. Many people have lost their purpose and are tied into the “rat race”. Why? It’s a safer option based on fear! People find it easier to trade their Dreams for security. Which then means that their entire lives revolve around a budget. It’s a limited way to live. This way the budget runs your life. You can only do what the budget allows month after month, year after year. It doesn’t neccessarily mean that you don’t work hard. The question to ask yourself is, will your plan give you financial freedom? Take a look at three steps that I want to share with you and start thinking about your future.
Focus on success
The future entails the success you desire. Name everything you want. Think about those things and Imagine how you would feel having them. Focus is the key to success, the only thing that will keep you going is imagining the feeling you will get from those things. To change your outer world you have to change your inner world first. You are what you think about. Ultimately, if you think success you will have no choice but to experience success. However, you must turn these thoughts into actions by setting small achievable goals. Anyone can do it. I have the opportuinity to meet very prominent and rich people all the time. Believe it or not what sets them apart is ofcourse their bank balance but they only do what broke people only think about.
Its not worth your time thinking about something you are not willing to act upon.
Create your own universe
Once you have established what you want, this thought should become your chorus, dont stop. Think about, talk about and act about your success. Create your own universe by loading into your life everything you want in it. Anything that does not fit in it or complement it has to go. You have to be very positive and if people around you are negative, train them to be positive, it will work in your favour. Creating your own universe is really the fun bit, almost like being a celebrity!
Tip- Create an album of your future.
Walk into your future
At this stage, imagine you have a briefcase. In it you have packed your thoughts and an album of everything you want to find in your future. Before you start walking to your future, remember everything in the briefcase are your dreams. You need to start acting like you have already got there, Who would you socialise with? What would you wear? How would you walk? How would you talk? What would you eat? How would you answer the phone? Start doing all these things they will not cost you a penny. Start walking into your future!
Tip- Time is your new best friend, value it!
The rich and the poor both have 24hrs a day, its up to you to use it wisely. Whatever is in your briefcase,
Think = Feel = Act
You will definitely get results. This technique works in every area of your life. Relationships, career, business, family, happiness, money etc. There are lots of positive thinking techniques that you can add to it to achieve your goals.
Tip- Play to win not to loose.
