OPINION – How do you maintain a positive outlook on life when life seems to hand you nothing but mess time and time again? Isn’t that the burning question that precedes all of us during times of struggle?
The truth is I have found myself a time or two playing the why card? Why me? Why now & why does it seem like it’s a never ending cycle in my life?
Recently I connected with a new business partner and he and I began to speak on the law of intention even during those times when you can’t see the forest through the trees. As he and I were talking, he brought up a message that hit me at the core of my soul…He stated: “While most people focus on the struggle I focus on the things I can control.” He then shared this powerful message: “What if God wasn’t taking you through something but rather, taking you TO something. If the world can grasp this concept then maybe just maybe the world would be filled with more pleasure rather than pain.”
Living in a state of abundance while focusing on the purest of your intentions regardless of the circumstances is the only thing that can change whatever chaos you may be going through in this moment. When we begin to stop chasing what the physical eye can’t see, that is when we begin to see what we desire our situations to become externally.
Sharing the thought over and over again with yourself that believes “I have everything I need and I have a positive expectation for what’s to come” can be your catalyst to a more promising direction in this present moment.
Imagine the feeling you get from staying strong when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, take yourself to the place of overcoming the disarray and visualize the richness you will carry with you from knowing that you were in the struggle of life long enough to become strong enough to carry yourself to the penthouse of your existence.
At the end of the day, you may not be able to go back and start a new beginning but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
Be Bold. Be Great. Be You.
