How are you seeing the world right now? Do you see fear? Scarcity? Chaos? Many do. Yet there are those who don’t; those who don’t buy in to what they hear on the news or see on the Internet. You can find groups of people who have chosen not to participate in the current economic panic. They’re living their life without fear, without scarcity and without chaos. They are enjoying their lives and moving through their days without talking about the jobs being lost, prices or crime escalating. How do they do it?
‘Life is a projection of your beliefs.’ ‘What you believe you perceive.’ If we believe that life is about fear, scarcity and chaos, then we not only see it everywhere, but we also project it so it continues. We talk about it, worry about, lose sleep over it. We do everything possible to keep it in front of us so we can keep attracting more of it.
Scientists at Rush University in Chicago discovered that the biggest impact on well-being came not from the situation people were in, but from people’s own perceptions of their situation. Participants who said they felt lonely were 86% more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease than those who didn’t, regardless of the actual size of their social network.
Want to change? You can start with something as simple as stopping your complaining (I said simple, not easy!) and move on to examining your beliefs so you can begin to change them. Believe the life you want is possible – it is.
