It is my belief. passion and confidence in the process of Change that unlocks the ability and possibility strong enough to win a better situation.
I read an amazing quote today, yet I could not find the original author to get credit.
“When something bad happens you have three choices. You can either let it define you, let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you.” Author Unknown
I wonder if the author realized that there are typically three voices in our head. For example the “let it define you” is the Inner Justifier – (Excuse Giver)…the “let it destroy you” is the Inner Critic – (Blame Focused) and the “let it strengthen you” is the Inner Adviser – the one that can evaluate any situation, choosing to think positively while looking for a better choice. The Inner Adviser takes bad situation and the immediate tendency to fall into “negativity land” and reminds us that there is a better way. We have the choice of all thought, to choose the ones that spiral us downward or pick the ones that move us in a breath-taking upward motion supporting with greater power the “I can do this” feeling. The Inner Adviser takes us to the “NO STRESS ZONE” by merging the two opposites (good and bad) and creating an overall balance, a homeostasis.
I do believe this is possible….I do it. I have a passion for being willing to make a real positive change that moves me in a forward motion and confidence to develop a powerful inner dialogue that witnesses through my results that “this is the right thing to do”.
Just as a lawyer approaches a jury to convince them to be in favor of his/her client; it is the same for us has to which inner dialogue will we choose to represent us. Which will it be for you? Take a moment and look at the way you FEEL about the life you are living. Which voice are you supporting? Each of the voices produce a definite set of beliefs, attitudes, opinions and verbal expressions. Take a close look at how you are expressing your life. What you are accepting.
Yes, Change can be scary, and yes it can feel like a death; but what feels like death is really a process of letting go and finding a peaceful resolve – a hope in something better, of something greater. This process flows like the seasons… after what may seem like a harsh Winter always comes Spring – “case closed” and an opportunity of something new.
I send you my warmest hug.
