life is easy? can it be? life is filled with challenges and obstacles. life is filled with wants, and more wants. i’m sure that you can give me a list of wants that you have right now, and you can tell me how they all seem to be just out of your grasp.
wants out of your grasp create feelings of overwhelm as you think about the lack of what you want, giving you stress, anxiety and fear.
how much do you truly want this want? how often do you think of this want? are your thoughts positive or negative? yes, there is a difference in wants. you have positive feeling wants and you have negative feeling wants.
a negative feeling want, can be a positive feeling want. if you are thinking about the want and feeling the lack of it, it is a negative feeling want, you are doing more to push the want away than to bring it closer to you.
when you are feeling negatively towards your wants you see all the challenges and obstacles. you see these as blocks and allow them to slow you down or to stop you in the pursuit of your want.
a positive feeling want is a want that you think about with positive desire, feeling happy and grateful that you choose to create the want in your life. feeling connected, high energy, enthusiasm and excitement for how you will feel when you have this want.
when you are connected to your wants positively, life is easy. when you are thinking positively about your wants you open yourself to opportunities to create what you want. energy is flowing to you and through you. you are inspired to take action.
i imagine that you can look back at the wants that you have had in your life and tell me about some that were negative feeling and took a long time to get the want. i also imagine that you can tell me about positive feeling wants you now enjoy that came to you easily.
what do you want now? is it a negative feeling want or a positive feeling want?
choose to think positively about what you want. connect to how you will feel living with this want and let the positive feelings give you energy, enthusiasm and excitement to create what you want.
tell me how life is easy for a positive feeling want in your life.
when you live your life positively; you look for the positive in ALL of life
the good in people (you know it’s there)
the positive outcome in a bad situation or event
the lesson that you are learning
the experience that you are gaining
you blind yourself to the negative that you DO need to see, to open to awareness and take action on.
you view the bad and negative as a challenge, as a period of growth – which is good – if that growth is in alignment with who you are.
even when you like change and are welcome to change, if you are only looking for the positive; you do not readily see the right and positive choices, the right and positive path to the changes that need to be made.
you start traveling, or drifting, off course through the wrong choices and changes down the wrong path, giving and pouring your positive energies into these changes.
then slowly, or suddenly, realizing that you are not following the path meant for you, you are not doing what makes you happy. you are not doing what’s most important to you.
are you blinding yourself to negative that would be an awareness to you for a different change?
are you blinding yourself with a false positive and not living your truth?
tripping on my skirt allowed me to share a moment of laughter with a total stranger, but more importantly with myself. it was laughter that was needed in my life at that moment.
i was not in a high energy mood, i wasn’t in a positive mood. and that small amount of laughter, and a smile exchanged with a total stranger was all that i needed to start feeling the positive and to start connecting to the high energy and live my day with enthusiasm and excitement.
thank you universe for giving me the laughter and the smile i needed right then to get my day flowing in the positive again!
what moments, not usually thought in the positive, are you grateful for?
a burning desire to have what you want to have; being who you want to be, doing what you want to do, and experiencing what you want to experience.
a high energy being connected to what you want, and what’s most important to you.
the image, the vision, in your mind for what you desire.
to keep a fire burning, the fire needs to be fed. to keep enthusiasm, a burning desire for what you want, you feed your mind positive thoughts and images for what you are desiring. you feed your mind positive new ideas and knowledge from books, audios, movies, and people that connect you to what you desire. feed your mind positive stimuli to spark thinking about your desire and building and clarifying your desire in your mind.
keeping your desire in your mind everyday by thinking about, and especially growing it through action is what keeps your desire at the top of your mind and to-do list so the busyness of day-to-day life doesn’t push your desire aside and down your list to-do.
I know that if I’m not keeping my enthusiasm high, then I’m not as involved in being who I want to be, doing what I want to do and experiencing what I want to experience as much as I want to be. Affirmations, imagining and studying keep my desires in my mind and keep me growing and taking actions to live my desires, to create and live the life that I want to live.
what’s most important to you, what’s your burning desire? is what you want in your mind and at the top of your list.
what’s most important to you?
do you feel enthusiastic when you think about your desire? do you feel positive high energy?
Do you know that you can choose to be grateful? Gratitude is an attitude, and we choose our attitude. We choose how we are going to respond to any situation. We choose how we are going to respond in each moment that we live and experience.
If you don’t like what is happening, or you don’t like how you are feeling, you can choose to feel positive feelings, you can choose to feel gratitude.
Gratitude has made a big difference in my life. It is gratitude that has tipped my life from feeling negative throughout the day to feeling positive throughout the day. Choosing to be grateful from the small to the big has changed me and transformed me. As I chose to be grateful and focused on the positive, I attracted and created more and more positive in my life.
I had moments in my life that I was feeling so low, so lost, so alone and I knew that I had to start focusing on positive. It is with gratitude that I was able to switch my focus to positive thoughts. I would open my journal and begin to write, “I am so happy and grateful for …” and I would begin to list what I was happy and grateful for. Some days this was not easy to do, I didn’t feel happiness for anything but my kids. And that is where I would start. “I am so happy and grateful for my kids, the sunshine, blue skies, coffee, sitting in the sun, green grass, kids playing outside, my deck” and slowly it would expand. “my job, being able to work from home, having a home, having a car, my family, my Grandpa, going to my Grandpa’s lake home, time spent with my family, traditions.” And slowly it would expand more into some of my wants and goals, and now all the way to my dreams and desires. “my business, reading, learning, a retreat center, writing a book, living in my dream home on the lake, traveling the world, being surrounded by nature.” Journaling in this way turned my negativity into positivity, and being able to focus on positive dreams and desires has made all the difference in my life.
I began to believe and trust more and more of the dreams and desires that I wrote about. I began growing and expanding, first in feeling good and positive more and more. Then expanding, like the ripples in the water, into all areas of my life and my being who I wanted to be, doing what I wanted to do and experiencing what I wanted to experience.
As I was grateful for what I wanted, I used my imagination. Imagination activated my power. The power we all have within ourselves to create the life that we want to live. Napoleon Hill wrote, “… imagination is the most marvelous, miraculous, inconceivably powerful force the world has ever known.”
With our imagination, we can build the picture of what we want. We can create the vision for the life that we want to live. With our imagination, we can clarify who we want to be, what we want to do and what we want to experience.
What are you grateful for? Are you imagining the life you want to live?
