Thank you for your comments.
I have been on a journey for a while now where I have learnt that there is a way to take control of your life in ways that I never knew were possible.
I have put my thoughts on what I have learnt here www.alastairslade.com.
@ Steve, I commented above on anything being possible. That is a truth for me. (If you think you can’t, you can’t, if you think you can, anything is possible.)
@ Wilson, you mentioned about taking control of your mind, I agree entirely, this is something I wrote on here. http://alastairslade.com/too-many-thoughts/
@ McKella, I love your ‘clearly envision’ statement. I have come to understand that it is even more powerful than we may at first think. On my journey I have learnt that I have far more power over outcomes than I ever dreamt possible.
Also, it is possible to exchange a belief in something for a ‘knowing’. How much more powerful then can your thoughts become. I understand that our thoughts are instrument in creating our reality and that we are actually creating all the time. If we choose to take control of that process our lives can be transformed. So I see every situation as a reflection on how I am ‘thinking’. We create good and bad stuff, just take control and stop creating the bad stuff.
That is where taking control of ones mind is so important. It can be called becoming present.
And that brings us back to happiness. For being happy with any situation takes us towards our goals, or those things we have clearly envisioned.
It has been said ‘be careful what you wish for’. Thinking about the comments above, that means that when our thoughts or our goals are shaping our reality then we need to be careful. If you ‘want’ something then you will get exactly what you ask for. Sounds good? This is the ‘careful’ bit, you will be getting more ‘wanting’ it. If you ‘want’ it remember you don’t have it (or you wouldn’t want it, you would have it!).
Know that you have something and it will be yours.
You are the master of your destiny, that is absolutely correct!
The page link below is to a page where I have summarised everything I have learnt in a ‘few’ lines. Please share it with whomever you think may benefit.
Best wishes and thank you so much for your comments.
