The Choice

I was asked recently how I keep such a stiff upper lip in times of stress and turmoil, and how I never seem sad or down anymore. Well the answer I gave wasn’t expected, or at least I don’t believe it was. You see, my answer was: I do still stress out at times, I do still feel sad and have bad days just like everyone else does – the only difference is that I don’t let them consume me or ruin my day. I make a conscious decision to stay positive and calm whenever I can. It’s not easy and it’s taken time for me to be able to control my actions and reactions to everyday misfortunes, but anyone can do the same with determination and a little self-belief. It’s all too easy to complain and feel sorry for ourselves, but it gets us nowhere. Life needn’t be a hindrance; life can be amazing if we truly want it to be, and we can live it on our terms.

If you feel you’re getting the sharp end of the stick and life is being a bitch, or if you’ve simply had a guts full of feeling low, why not get in contact? Together we can build a better tomorrow for all of us.

Nothing is unless we make it so.

We all have different needs, we all have different beliefs – in fact, I’d say we are all as different as can be, but are still the same in many ways. Who we are and how we live is a complicated issue. We all perceive life in various ways, as if living in different realities. Some of us find life’s journey difficult, some of us find it less so; it’s all down to perspective and perspectives can be changed. But whose perspective is right and whose is wrong? Well to be totally honest with you, I don’t believe there is a right or wrong way – we are all guessing. There is no big book of how to live our lives correctly, unless we take religious texts into consideration – but they are only the ideologies of a group of people who hold their own agenda and not a reliable ‘go to’ book. If there was a guide book in my mind, it would have a simple premise: be loving, be kind, be happy, be grateful, be confident and believe. We all know right from wrong, when we should and shouldn’t be doing something. I guess what I’m trying to say is, as humans, we have the ability to make choices in our lives, we can stay or we can go, we can say yes or no, we are not rooted to the spot. ‘Nothing is unless we make it so’ is a statement I truly believe in; it’s the fundamental principle of what I teach and how I live my life. I believe if we live a good, positive life then good things will come to us, and we learn to appreciate life for the beauty and opportunities it brings. Me and you, you and me, we can be who we want to be, and if we shoot our dreams a little too far out into the universe and we run out of time, at least we would have had an amazing journey along the way.

Imagine 

Imagine that you woke up tomorrow morning and you find out that everything you wish for had come true. You are Bruce Almighty. Imagine it, and consider – what would you do? Remember that everything you wish for has consequences, so if you wish for world peace it could cause an economic effect in many countries. The same goes for solving hunger. We would have to start off carefully with kid gloves; it’s a big responsibility to have the power of creation in the palm of your hands, but with this power you could have the life of your dreams. So how about for safety reasons we say that as a beginner we have to kind of earn the respect of the power, by showing it that we are prepared. The choices we make can be made with a clear and decisive mind, without prejudice and with an honest soul.Believing that you now have this power what do you do?How do you start? What do you wish for?

Interesting isn’t it, having that kind of opportunity laid in front of you? Every choice you now make has consequences – good and bad – that could affect the world around you. Would you be willing to make sacrifices, take responsibility, become a better you to hold this power? Would you take it seriously enough and give it the time it takes to learn how to use it with skill?
Well, imagine again that I tell you that you hold that power already…you, yes you. Hear me out, I’m being serious for once. I can’t think of a better way of explaining The Law of Attraction than how I just did. The life we lead is determined by the choices we make, this is a true fact whether we want to believe it or not and it works whether you believe in it or not. But by taking responsibility for our actions and choices we can shape a future of amazing possibilities. The proof is out there, I’m not going to rabbit on about it, I don’t need to – all you have to do is try it for yourself. Start off small and grow big – one thing at a time – and I promise I won’t say I told you so. You can stop imagining now, it’s time to start believing.
