It is the start of a new decade, 2020. The start of a New Year. We all want something to change. To release old habits; affirm new ones and be positioned for greater.
The problem with that is we will not change our actions until we change our thoughts. When our thoughts are filled with dimmer hopes; broken dreams and shattered vision it restricts our position to move. We are held hostage to what we think, even if we don’t see it. Self doubt comes when we say I think I should, and at the same we say, I am too busy; too old or not capable because I don’t have the right contacts or the smarts to pull that thing (whatever you are delaying) off. We internalize the ying and yang of opportunity by what we think (those thoughts).
Self limitation is like stress, it is a silent killer of your hopes. A destructive force to your operable actions and a taser to your walk in pursuance of vision. Your thoughts when not apprehended for fruitfulness or increase will take the path of least resistance towards limited effort. You must keep the Giddy in your Up – ward thinking. This assures you a place of elevation, a place of jubilation as you see over the circumstances that distract your purpose. You may wonder why this is necessary and I can only tell you this; everything that is down eventually must come up. Seeds planted sprout up, towards the earth to create beauty or nourish life. Mountains, trees, and fountains spring up to allow the partakers a moment of refreshing. And in each of these life happens.
Up-ward thinking allows your life to happen. To be the extension of that well that springs within you. Up-ward brings clarity into view. Just like the eagle who continues to take on higher elevations to come out of the storms. Yes, you can stay low, and neutral, but what does that give you? If all it takes is for you to reposition yourself towards positive thoughts, what do you think can happen? You might just go for that executive position; or for that promotion on your job; or you may even decide to author that book; or take your first flight to that dream destination that you have delayed. You might just begin to experience life in a way you thought (that word) was not possible. Or maybe you can meet people, new faces and races, that you thought (that word, again) were so different from you. And you just might gain a new view of you. Imagine that. To discover a new you who is adventurous, exciting and free to life the life you were meant.
Why not have clearer thoughts starting today. It might just allow you to see life differently; inherently, beautiful.
