Your expectations can sometimes be your greatest hindrance. This is the secret you have been wanting to know all your life. And it has been with you all your life. This is what counselling for yourself or your relationship can help you uncover.
Sounds pretty final doesn’t it. What if I don’t take it? Who will know? Who will care? Ultimately, you decide your life path and this page or any other self-help book or advice is simply there for you to choose to read, investigate, discover more or leave for another day.
Learning to let go your expectations (because they can hinder your life path) and focus on what you want (because you can create your own destiny) are the first steps to being the master of your domain.
Acknowledging your limitations and your negative thoughts and then letting that information go is the next step. Once you accept that you may not succeed in your goal or ain or life purpose, once that has been acknowledged and owned, then you are ready to focus on that ultimate choice you have made. You can now get on with living the journey toward whatever eventuates.
As long as you focus on your ultimate choice you are more likely to achieve it… rather than think about the ideas and thoughts and feelings that often accompany the big goal, that are mostly about assumptions around things that you think you will need to get to your goal.
Letting go of how you going to get what you want is crucial to the getting what you want.
Focus on what you want and let your natural abilities take you on the journey toward that end. IMAGINE THAT END RESULT.
This choosingchange attitude makes a hell of a difference to your day, your week, your month, your year, your life. It is using your mind to manifest your successfully creating your life’s desires.
Mindfulness in practice
There are four principles to note regarding taking mindful steps toward achieving happiness or nirvana or peace or what ever you ant to call living well.
The experience of pain, angst, discomfort, disharmony, torment, distress…
Knowing where the source of this pain lies…
Knowing how to stop the pain…
Encouraging continued living toward ceasing the pain.
Mindfulness introduces the idea of following this process… and indeed it is recognising that the process, in the here-and-now, is the very act of being mindful in practice.
That hoary saying — “Life is not meant to be easy,” might be better understood with — “The easy path is great but it is the difficult that makes me bolder, brighter, more complete within myself, more creative, more authentic…a better person…”
