This article is the first of many I will devise which have proven methods of how you can take charge of your life and turn it into “making the rest of your life, the best of your life”. Imagine a life without any physical baggage, emotional pain or without those enduring tasks that have kept you on a negative level. Imagine meeting that friend or family member you’ve always avoided due to their constant negative thinking and connecting with them in such a way that you are able to get them to think or feel positive about themselves and having that type of affect on everyone you meet Imagine knowing yourself so well, that you can make that deal, meeting/interview and life connections in general a success every time. When I first became aware of this way of life, my confidence level hit the roof and more importantly, my life lifted onto such a level that I managed to become the person I had always wanted to be, find my perfect partner change careers into one that I had previously only dreamt of and started to live the life I want to live. I do feel I am one of the happiest people alive today and am constantly grateful for my life’s gifts that I now wish to pass onto others.
First, let’s address the where we are and why we are feeling how we are feeling to understand the where we are at. Don’t you hate it when you fail to do something, or have all the knowledge and experience to get that job, but fail to answer that one question in the interview which puts you off for the duration? Isn’t it frustrating that you have all the intention and motivation to give up smoking only to start up a few weeks/months down the line following an incident or influence? What about failing to gather the courage to talk to that man / lady we have so desperately wanted to invite out for dinner only to shy away and watch another (more confident) person ask them in front of our eyes. Especially frustrating when we become so influenced by others that we even fail to do the right thing because we may draw negative attention from them, i.e. giving up our public transport seat to the more deserving, or acting differently when in the company with others we classify as more influential, only to regret our actions the next day. Why can’t I just be myself and be comfortable with it? Do I not love me for who I truly am? Why can’t I earn a good living doing what I love, live where I want to live and wake up / get out of my bed like every day is a holiday? Why can’t I be one of those individuals in the fortunate position to be able to say, “I’ve never worked a day in my life, I just do what I enjoy doing and have earned millions from it”? As children most of us are so confident on having the ability to achieve anything, never shy to ask the most obvious questions and then further investigate to try and understand why something is presented in such fashion. When I was a child, I would see someone suffering and would do anything in my power to help alleviate their pain, as I am sure every one of you would have been. Our brains are like sponges in childhood because we are genuinely fascinated and unconditionally ready to provide that help and support to people we feel affection towards. Then as we grow older we become more familiar with the word, “No” and “Can’t” or we feel pain when harsh words are spoken by the ones we love because we acted in such a way that went against the views or actions of the adults we adopt as our mentors. Soon, our dreams and abilities seem to disappear to pursuing the path that someone randomly suggests and before we know it, we are twenty years into the future wondering if this was the path we wanted to follow in the first place. Due to my inability as a young boy I was told by school teachers that I was ‘dim’. No matter how hard I tried, I was not able to please. It was many years later I realised that I failed because I believed I was not able to...
