I don’t want this to sound overly dramatic, but in the grand scheme of things, life is a bit of a drama, and for the most part, each day is caught up with surviving it. Whether it’s financial security we are fighting to preserve, or love we’re trying to sustain, or – as is permanently in the spotlight as of recent months – surviving a pandemic, we all face challenges and change.
I used to think that it was a never-ending roller-coaster ride; that on some days I am better at riding it and surviving it than on others and that I was at the mercy of Lady Luck. Now I realise that most of the challenges that I’ve faced come to all of us, and what makes it less of a melodrama, and more of a show-stopping pizzazzy festival is how we choose to react to them.
I’ve realised that we write our own script!
Instead of being at the mercy of bosses, authority figures, family – however well-intentioned – or feeling that we are trapped by our circumstances or our environment, we have the power to define our own life-story, to become the CEO of our own thoughts and our own destiny.
Words are unbelievably powerful! They become our thoughts and then those thoughts inform our actions and we can become stuck in a tornado of allowing our past to influence our inner beliefs, which limits our effectiveness and our happiness in the present.
Over the next few days, I will provide some tips as to how we can change our interpretation of yesterday’s journey to secure the present and the future that you envision.
