If you are driving with a destination in mind, is your focus in the rear view mirror?
Are you moving away from something or are you moving toward something?
Are you focused on where you were or where you are going?
If you touch a hot stove, it’s supposed to hurt
If you are living a life that is not up to the standard of who you are – if you are living someone else’s life, if you are living off purpose…it’s supposed to hurt and nothing is supposed to take away that pain until you change the path you are on.
If you are not feeling the pain, when you take the behaviors and thoughts that are not in your highest and best, you will begin to feel ok with living a life that is beneath you. You will begin to lower your standards.
What if your disease, pain, symptom was the cure?
If you take your hand off of the hot stove, it will stop hurting
When you begin living your life to your highest standards, it will stop hurting.
Are you asking the questions, “How far can I get from what I do not want to feel?”
Or are you asking the question, “How can I develop new resources to create an ideal experience of life I have never experienced before?”
No matter what happened in your past, starting now, we are moving in a new direction.
No matter what you came in with, starting now, we are looking to the future, not the past.
The only reason you should look in the rearview mirror is to celebrate how far you’ve gotten from there
What’s behind you will not help you
Your past is not there and your future is not either, but by taking a different path, you definitely won’t meet the past…and definitely meet a different future than the path you are currently on.
Rather than asking, “How can I make it go away?”
“What can I focus on differently….what new actions can I take….what structures in my life can I change, to create the life I would prefer?”
Let’s ask a different question.
Let’s choose a different path.
With Love and Appreciation,
