This Too Shall Pass
From the moment you were born, you have faced obstacles, some big and some small. These impediments seem to lurk in the shadows, waiting until the worst possible time to come forward and then turn your world topsy-turvy. Fortunately, there is always light at the end of the tunnel, you just need to know how to find it.
I am a firm believer in the power of the mind and its ability to shape our lives. There is always more to an obstacle than what meets the eye. During the past few years, a hot topic for discussion has been the universal law of attraction. Basically, this law states that you attract to yourself that which you think about with the greatest intensity, your thoughts shape your reality.
Sounds simple, huh? Well, focusing your mind on the things that you wish to have, while blocking out negative thoughts, is extremely difficult. Simply thinking positively is not enough to remove obstacles from your path. To think positively is really doubt in disguise. You must know that you can remove any hindrence to success in life.
Whatever your situation, know that troubling times always pass. Just like a storm, troubles in life can come at anytime, but never last for long. Whenever faced with difficulties, I like to think back to past events and remember how I felt during those times and then focus on how I felt afterwards. I always made it through the storm.
Unfortunately, when faced with obstacles or troubling times, most people lose sight of the fact that the storm will, indeed, end soon. I believe that accepting your situation, and then focusing your thoughts on the removal of an obstacle will cause it to flee from your life much faster.
When obstacles present themselves, it helps to imagine what your life would be like with the obstacles removed. You must envision how you want your life to be, reflecting upon your desired outcome on a daily basis, and with unrelenting conviction. Know that you don’t have to experience anything you don’t want.
We are not here to complete some sort of test, nor are we here to experience failures. You and I are here to simply experience that which will bring us the most happiness. Go ahead, see your life as you wish it to be and then reflect upon your desired life each day. I can promise you that if you will only change your old way of thinking, great things will come your way.
Again, thinking positively will get you nowhere. You have to know that you are entitled to experience anything you wish. It is your life! If there are some obstacles in your life or something that you desire then constantly imagine your life without these obstacles and it will become your reality.
Stop depending on other people for your happiness. You will only be left wanting in the end. Don’t look to some higher being to grant you the life you want; it could be a long wait. Besides, has your current way of living gotten you the results you want? Probably not. God is not some genie picking and choosing whom to bestow happiness upon.
Life is short, and then it ends. You only get one shot, so don’t waste it by looking to other people for the life you desire. Whatever obstacle comes your way-you can remove it by simply changing your thoughts. If you will focus intently on the things you want, while believing it can be yours, then it is impossible for it to not become your reality-it is a mathematical certainty.
