I want you to stop and think a moment about this question………Do You Love What You Do?
I am not asking whether you love your job, or love being a parent or a partner, but “Do You Love What You Do, and the Person You are Everyday? Can you look in the mirror and smile at the person you are looking at?
You should… Because life is precious, and you’re literally trading your precious life for what you do–moment by moment, day by day, year by year.
Think about it…
If you are unhappy with the way you spend your days, what can you do?
Given where you are now, how much good can you create for yourself? It may not be practical to resign from your job at this moment, you may not suddenly have a housekeeper appear to help you with your workload at home, your ideal partner may not come knocking at your door, but ask yourself “What can I do EACH day to make a difference in my life?”
Successful people know and live with this notion everyday. Walt Disney once said, “If you can dream it, you can achieve it.” Walt Disney didn’t just say this one day and Disneyland appeared the next. He persevered, struggled, had set-backs, but he always, always kept his eyes on his goals and what he wanted to achieve. The most important thing Walt Disney did was to take action to create his dream. He didn’t just hope…or wish…..HE TOOK ACTION!
If you have a desire, the very fact that you have that desire means that you have the means to fulfill it. Everything in physical form was first a thought. Think back a few years, or maybe only a few months….what were some things you dreamed about doing, having, experiencing in your past that you have fulfilled now?
The Law of Vibration tells us, “What you think about, you bring about.” When you think positive thoughts, you attract positive people and circumstances to you. When you think negative thoughts, you attract negative people and circumstances. Like attracts like.
What do your thoughts say about you? More importantly what are your thoughts bringing to your life.? You may believe that your thoughts are private – that no-one else knows what you are thinking….the truth is no-one else needs to know what you are thinking – YOU DO, and with each of those persistent thoughts, you attract more of the same.
A scary thought? Perhaps.
I believe it is empowering – knowing that I do have the ability to make changes in my life, step-by-step, day-by-day. In today’s “fast-filled” lifestyle where we expect everything should be available to us with a flick of a switch, it might be daunting to know that it may take longer than a day, or a week, or maybe even a year to bring about the changes you want in your life. But, each step is a step closer to where you want to be.
In life you are either moving forward or going backwards – you never remain static. Each step forward is progress. This is something you are doing for yourself, but the benefits will also be felt by those around you. With each step, look in the mirror, and think to yourself “I am proud of myself for doing this.”
How will this statement change your thought patterns, and more importantly what will it attract to your life?”
It just may set off a whole new chain reaction, and you may see your life in a whole new light. While, it sounds good to say only do what makes you happy, the reality is that in our society, we usually need to work. We all need to undertake things in our life that we may not particularly want to do. We obviously need to make money, and your job may not excite or even inspire you.
However, rather than focusing on what you don’t like about your job, what does it give you? Obviously you are paid, but what else? Does it give you personal contact with people, are you learning things from this job that can catapult you to the next step in your life? It is well worth the time to really think about this question.
It may not be your career that you would like to change – it doesn’t matter what your situation is – take a look at what you are focusing on……
Our reality is conceived by what we are prepared to look for. We only open our eyes to what we are looking for, and we hear what we are prepared to hear. Our reality is like a flashlight in a darkened room. Where we shine our light is our reality.
Imagine what we could see if we let the sun shine in to our darkened room. Why not open those curtains and let the light come in and open up a whole new world of possibilities? Who knows, you may find that
