I love the saying ‘making sense of the chaos’, I really do – because it’s a phrase that has been one of the driving forces of my self-development and growth. Can I make sense of the chaos around me and come out the other side in one piece and with a sane mind? Since starting my journey, how I perceive the world around me has changed and it’s given me an insight of the chaos and how I can use it to suit myself and my needs. We can sit back and believe that we have no power to make change or a difference in this crazy world, or we can stand up and decide to see through the madness and write our own story.
I have written about why we believe the things we do and how to change our beliefs to suit us and not our perceived reality, and I stand by every word I have written because changing my beliefs has helped me make sense of the chaos and given me the opportunity to have a better understanding of the world we live in. The truth is that nobody knows what they are doing; everybody is guessing because there is no guide book on how to live life. We are the authors of our own stories, we are the masters of our own destinies, and if we don’t stand up and give it our own narrative then it’s all too easy to fall in to the chaos that is life and become just another part of that story.
We have a choice: we can accept the world as it is or we can change it, it’s that simple. It’s not an easy task but it’s a task worth doing because the rewards are infinite. We are worth more than existing in uncertainty, fear, pain, suffering and all the other things that the chaos brings. We are infinite beings with the ability to achieve amazing things when we learn to believe in ourselves.
