Habits-What I Want for You!
by Miami Phillips
Think for a moment about your Self. Is there something that you would like to have, somewhere you would like to go, or something you would like to do? What is holding you back? I can probably guess at the possible answers: "Not enough money." "Not enough time." "I couldn't do that!" At the risk of going out on a limb, I am going to suggest that the only thing holding you back from doing what you would like … is you!
Every one of us was born with the power to change our lives. All of us have seen seemingly ordinary people become superheroes. Why is this? Something happens in their lives that makes them suspend belief long enough to act unconsciously. When this happens, they are able to access this power and perform extraordinary feats.
Our minds are a recording device. We store away everything we read, see, hear, or otherwise experience in our lives from before we come into the world. During this time we also form opinions with the use of this information and from the influences of others. From opinions and beliefs come habits. Habits then become our life - just day after day habits!
Have you ever tried to break a habit? It's not easy! That is because a habit is much easier to do than NOT do. To change a habit means you have to change your belief! Now we are back where we started. If there is something you truly want in your life, you can get it.
From the time I was a little boy, I wanted to be a sailor on a sailboat. I would tell everybody I was going to sail around the world. Many people told me then I could not do that. What is funny is that many people today tell me the same thing although we built a sailboat and sailed 15,000 miles in seven years. My beliefs were (and are) very strong.
Just in the last few years, we had decided we wanted to see what it was like to be involved in horses, training and lessons. I honestly do not remember one person who did not say "That is too hard. You won't make any money." We love our new horse ranch! We learned a long time ago that belief comes from within, and not from others.
The very first step is to change your belief. Believe that it is possible. One of the most powerful things you can do for someone is to allow them the freedom to change their belief and their thinking process. This can be as simple as the statement - "What I want for you is".
When hearing this statement, the mind will take that information in and bounce it around for a while. It might, with a bit of help from your Self, begin to change your belief that a thing is impossible, and begin to believe that it is possible … even reachable.
Once your intentions to the Universal Power is clear, then this Power has no choice but to help you by presenting opportunities for you. (You do have to be clear enough to see the opportunities and you must act!)
Think of all you can do! What is it that you would truly love to do?
I want that for you!
Choose Your Attitude and Expand Your Thinking
Watch a child learning to walk and it's amazing. No matter how many times they fall down, they hop back up because they instinctively know that eventually they'll be able to walk.
They don't have to worry what others think.
Optimism: How to Avoid Negative Thinking
Have you ever wondered why some people feel down and defeated when faced with difficult situations, while others feel challenged and hopeful? Or why some people get all worked up and angry over small inconveniences and disagreements, while others respond more positively?
You Can Choose: Is Today Going to be a Good Day or Bad Day?
Every day you have a choice: Will it be a good day or a bad one? It really IS up to you. You can't control the external circumstances of your life
but you can control your response to them.
It Never Rains On A Right Attitude!
The decision to win in life belongs to you, not to anyone else. No one else can make that decision for you. No one else can open up the top of your head and pour a can of luck down inside of you. The victory is available to you, so is the defeat.
