Do you often find yourself repeating the words “one day…” followed by what you wish you had or could accomplish?
One day I’ll get healthy.
One day I’ll lose weight.
One day I’ll have the job I want.
One day I’ll work for myself.
One day I’ll have the house of my dreams.
One day I’ll travel the world.
The list goes on and on…
For years, I found myself repeating all the things I would do or acquire “one day” and tacking things on just about every day. The list grew longer and longer but yet, I remained in the same place if not further behind.
You see, what happens is, we fall victim to what we choose to accept as our reality. We decide that where we are is what is while neglecting to see the possibility of change.
Because we tend to focus on all the reasons why things are the way they are instead of directing our focus on to what we desire our life to be. We choose to focus on all the things around us that are not working out and play the victim role of “Why me?” while the story in our head keeps repeating…
My life is never going to change.
I’ll never get anywhere.
I’m not good enough.
I’m always broke.
It’s the same shit different day.
Going around and round with this sort of negative talk in your head will only continue to create more of what you don’t want versus what you do want.
When you focus on that which you don’t want, whether it’s intentional or by default, you create more of what you don’t want around you. When you focus on that which you desire, you create more of what you desire around you just the same.
Shift your focus
Why not focus on what is going right in your life and be grateful for all the things that make you feel good versus those that don’t?
There is always something to be grateful for… A warm place to live, a warm bed to sleep in, food to eat, being alive and well, family, friends, and so much more.
When you start focusing on all the things you are grateful for while allowing yourself to feel good in the process, you begin to attract more of those “feel good” emotions into your life and more of what you do want begins to show up.
So you see, by remaining focused on all that is going wrong in your life while continuing to wish things were different without doing anything about it, you are only expanding on more of what you don’t want versus what you do want.
In order to intentionally create the life you truly love, you must redirect your focus from the lack of and onto abundance while keeping your undivided attention on what you want your life to look like. Then begin taking massive action toward getting there.[bctt tweet=”There is nothing you cannot do or accomplish, as long as you want it bad enough.” username=”RawandAlive”]
It is only then that you will begin to see positive change take place all around you and your “one days” will quickly dissolve from being a distant dream to what will become your current reality.
For a great read on how changing your thoughts can change your life, I highly recommend reading Dr. Wayne Dyer’s book, Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life and see how you too can transform your life.
