The main focus for so many people is in what you are doing in your life, the problem with this is you are setting yourself up for pain and frustration every day. When instead you just choose to BE, say happy or peaceful or contented you now have complete control over your life.
It’s not your fault; you were raised this way and it is as if society demands you to be constantly doing something or trying to achieve something and you worth is determined by these values. The question I ask of you is “How is this working for you?”
Are you one of the millions (billions) struggling to just get by in life, to provide for your family in a manner in which both your needs and wants are being met?
As you look at your life how much happiness and satisfaction and you experiencing in your relationships, with your job or with your finances?
A time for change is at hand. A change that you decide on.
When you just decide to JUST BE, say happy or peaceful or joyous or any other of a number of states of beingness you now open your life up to a new perspective. A perspective that will now guide your days not by what you are doing, instead by how you are being.
Just think how different your relationships will be when your focus is on being happy with the people in your life instead of by what they think of you and what you are doing for them.
Just think of how different your job will be when your focus is on your satisfaction of a job well done rather than on just getting through the day so you can collect a paycheck.
Just think how different your finances will be when your focus is enjoying the abundance in your life rather than on just the balance of your checkbook.
The beauty of this new way of life is that nothing you are experiencing in the world needs to be different, only your view if it.
Yes, there are many things in your life that you may choose to change, but nothing needs to change, other than your perspective and your state of being.
Here is a quick way you can begin to bring the experience of being rather than doing into your daily experience. Look at your life and choose a person or situation that you have had continued challenges with in your past, that occurs on a regular basis and decide to now BE rather than DO around this situation. Perhaps it is your negative reaction to something at work for example. Choose over the next week to instead of getting caught up in the negativity you instead choose to be peaceful around this subject, no matter what is occurring. You do not have to change what you are doing, just your attitude about it. So instead of making a comment to a co-worker, instead just smile and go about your duties. I know, it may feel difficult and uncomfortable for a bit, however it is just a week, right?
What changed in this example? Not the people or the situations, just how you are choosing to BE.
It is a new way to live life and so much easier. Once you learn how to make this simple shift in one area of life you can begin expanding it to more and more of the events in life you are faced with. Then see the difference you will enjoy in the overall quality of your life.
