Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.

Deepak Chopra

Do you find yourself in the same situations again and again, over and over?
Do you react the same way each time? With a negative response?
Do you always look to the negative, instead of the positive outcome?

Why do you think that is?
Is it because if the opposite happens you’ll be pleasantly surprised?
Why not be positive from the outset?  You know your thoughts create your reality.  You’ve seen it here and elsewhere before. We’re all guilty of this response.  I am too. The good thing is however if we can recognize the challenge in ourselves we have an opportunity to pivot, to shift our attitude. If we recognize it soon enough and often enough we can typically pivot quicker then we did in the past.

The reason I write this blog as all of well know is to guide those who want to be helped, to show those people that there is another way to live your life, to find peace, to find happiness, to pivot at a quicker pace when things become challenging.

You’ve heard the saying I’m sure:
The more you do something the better you’ll get at it.

Well the more you recognize your emotions and when they are in a downward spiral the easier it will become to shift your thoughts if you really want to. The trick here is, the optimum words here are:

If you don’t want to change then nothing anyone else says to you will penetrate that emotional boundary you’ve set up.  As with anything, you HAVE to WANT to change.  I would think if you’re here reading this blog for the first time or are a longtime reader, you’re the type of person who is seeking that ability to change.

Look in the mirror and be that change!
Don’t live your life the same old way.
Be a pioneer of the future.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
