Visualize with me for a moment a car stuck in the mud. The harder the driver tries to get out. The deeper the car gets. That is what has been happening to the vast majority of people throughout history. Some people because they watched others got smart. When they got stuck they stopped, and waited for help to come. Some get help, but many others do not get out, because they lack the type of help needed to get themselves out. What they lack is the awareness of the right type of help needed.
Just siting here pondering on all of the years I had been stuck in life waiting for someone to show me how to progress to the life that I had always wanted. Just down right euphoria! All of the books that I have been reading were and have been in the library all these years. I was just not aware that they were there. All of the principles and concepts have been know about for centuries. I was not aware of this. Everything that ever was, and ever will be has always been here, but I was not aware. Everything to create a happy life, a happy marriage, and a happy family, career, etc. Is already here.
So the principle that is missing is simply this. To become aware!
I recorded an interview last week about an attitude shift that I made over 19 years ago. I added a post on my Facebook page about another attitude shift, and I was asked what was the shift about.
I became completely aware of the principle that our present world is a direct reflection, or a complete manifestation of what we think about everyday. The mind, not the brain is the most sophisticated and misunderstood area of our being. Think of a mirror, and not a trick mirror. The reflection that you see is what is! My mentor Earl Nightingale stated that, “we are the sum total of all of our thoughts from the last five years, and we will become the sum total of all of our present thoughts over the next five years”. I heard a friend say over 11 years ago and, I did not pay attention to his words. Junk in. Junk out! If life sucks, then it is because of what is going in the mind. I like to call it the filing cabinet in the mind. All thoughts will stay there until they are replaced!
Another aspect to my shift was the fact that I had not been planning out my life, because I was not thinking. Some will say we do think, but when you truly understand the real concept of thinking. We don’t think. It has been said that 2% think 3% think that they think, and 95% would rather die than think. All these years I have been in the 3%, and after reading and fully understanding this concept, an attitude shift was immediately needed!
Now comes the task of learning how to fully implement, and to create the new life, and the new brighter path in life that I desire to walk down. One filled with new thoughts, which creates new ideas, which creates the new results.
It is amazing what happens when you become aware!
