This year, I am sure there will be many people with an intention to start shifting away from energy consuming habits of thinking which can get us sucked back into the mentality of ” life is tough”, ” things don’t just happen for me”, ” I have to earn every piece of happiness I get” ….etc.
I am not too familiar with the Star wars series, but I vividly remember one clip with one of my favorite quotes from this famous master -piece. Here it is:
“Always Remember, Your Focus Determines Your Reality.” Qui-Gon Jinn.
I would like to remind everyone reading this post that what we focus on expands. We tent to forget that and that is what really makes things tough on us as we start accumulating the feedback on our choice of perception. To start expecting our lives to unfold in pleasant, easy or even effortless ways takes developing new habits of thinking and focusing.
These habits need to on-going and eventually become a natural part of our lives and our way of thinking. When we make the shift, new possibilities and ways of experiencing life will be available to us and one day we will able to say ” Things always work out for me” with a complete conviction.
