Creating Your Self
Inspiration of the Day
“People often say that this or that person
has not yet found himself.
“But the self is not something one finds,
it is something one creates.”
Dr. Thomas Szasz
Psychiatrist and Author
So Now What?
If you are unhappy, disappointed and frustrated with your life and desperately trying to find a way to change it from the outside you will be destined to stay stuck.
If you’re waiting for happiness and success to show up at your door then you’re wasting your time. It’s not going to happen.
If you’re waiting for a life of wonderfulness to descend upon you like a fine mist from Heaven then you’re going to be very disappointed.
The life you desire and dream of is possible but you are going to have to create it yourself.
Before your outside world can change you first need to get into the mental and emotional state of the person you want to become.
How would you think, feel and act if you had the life you really wanted?
How would you walk? A lot more confidently, moving with purpose, certainty, courage and spirit?
Or would people see you with your shoulders slumped, eyes on the ground and a grimace on your face?
How would you talk? Would your words be cheerful, upbeat and joyful?
Or filled with complaining, moaning and groining?
How would you act? Would you be generous, kind, loving with a smile on your face?
Or grumpy and irritated, the person everyone knows is going to be in a bad mood?
The first step in changing your life is to become the person you want to be mentally, emotionally and physically.
You will need to walk, talk and exude from your very core the person you want to become first and then the Universe will go out of it’s way to form your dream life around you.
You can’t be unhappy, frustrated, and disappointed with life and expect great things to show up tomorrow.
And fake smiling while you’re angry at the world doesn’t work. A plant can only grow to it’s full potential if it’s roots are good and strong. The same with you.
This is the work my friend: transforming your inner core to match that of the person who has the dream life you want.
You can’t expect peaches from the roots of a sour berry bush.
Change your inner game and watch your new life unfold around you.
Now I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again,
I believe in you!
