I am one week into my evolving plan to live a higher life. I thought I would take just a moment to share a big idea that seems to have come through from what I am learning every day. The big idea for this week is: You Have A Choice!
You get to make a choice about how you are going to respond to life. You can respond in a negative or positive way – it is totally up to you about how you respond. Once you get focused on the reality of this truth, there are some things that you can do, to unleash its power in your moment by moment living.
Here are three ideas worth considering:
1.) Take Negatives Out! There are people and places that you do not need to be around and that you do not need around you. This will pull you down, before you pull it up, so take some time to step away, so that you can get yourself strong and then when you have yourself in a good place and are ready, you can try to help others. Remember: What you allow to come into your life has influence. The question that should determine if it is allowed in or not is simply this: Is this adding more than it’s taking away. If the answer is no, then you know the tough decision you have to make.
Use your five senses to apply this: Don’t allow your sight to focus on anything that is not adding value. Don’t allow your hearing to listen to anything that is not adding value. Don’t allow your touch to feel anything that is not adding value. Don’t allow yourself to taste to cause you to eat anything that is not adding value. Don’t allow your smell to lead you into a bad indulgence that is not adding value.
2.) Put Positives In! You will find that when you start to get rid of negatives, that you will need to replace them with something. If we fail to replace them with good and productive positives, then other negatives will find a way to fill the void.
Look for positive relationships that build you and allow you to build others. Listen to encouraging and upbeat stuff. Get in touch with your feelings and learn to allow them to provide direction support for where you need to go and what you need to do. Taste that life is good and take some time to stop and smell the roses, that you most of the time rush by without even realizing that they are there.
3.) Build A System! None of this happens by accident, so make sure that you are taking a little time everyday to build a system. Get a journal and pen and begin to record what you are learning and the insights that this different way of living is providing. Take time to write down at least five new things that you are thankful for everyday. Make plans for your dreams to become reality by putting pen to paper.
