Without a doubt, because of the end of the Mayan’s calendar, 2012 is a year awaited with great curiosity for millions of people worldwide. A series of strange events and horrific collisions of meteors and planets with the Earth, are just some of the expert predictions about the end of the world, and issues rose in relation to the conservation of the planet, which seem to be converging to talk about the destruction of humanity in 2012.
And what does this mean for us? How can we keep our minds quiet, with so many stressing influences on us day-to-day?
It would be wise to attach more importance to what is still unknown within us instead of listening to much different information coming from outside. We need to know our inner world more than other planets and civilizations. Simply because we can’t change what’s outside, but we have 24 hours to ourselves with the unlimited power to create solutions for a happier and healthier life. And that’s the reality. We can decide before everything we do. We can be our best friend and/or our worst enemy. Sabotage our happiness or overcome countless challenges.
And to attain our self-knowledge and development, I ask: do you think you can be and have more in life? If your answer is yes, I suggest you follow these three steps:
• Be specific in what your heart desires.
• Trust yourself.
• Learn from challenges.
Be specific in what the heart desires
What does your heart want to feel about life? What is your dream?
This question seems simple to answer without hesitation, but when I asked that same question to thousands of people, the answers took volumes of inappropriate or evasive words or there was complete silence.
Others answered were based on the logic, rational level, and not from the heart, as it should.
Why is it? Lack of focus? Perhaps the evasive answer comes from the fact that their desire is to believe the impossible or even the ridiculous?
What do you like to do from the heart? What makes you have joy and fulfillment? Ask yourself and answer without hesitation. When you reply bluntly, your are on your way to get there.
Now that you know what your heart wants, then there comes the next step.
Trust in yourself
Trusting yourself should not be difficult for anyone, but millions of people live without the slightest confidence to carry out their wishes and dreams. Why?
Because of the way they were created. There are people who grow up being emotionally abused by society and can’t love or rely on themselves because of the belief that they have not been worthy in childhood therefore, they are not capable of many achievements.
Whoever wants to get personal fulfillment has a duty to know and trust self with all they have. How? Developing a positive internal dialogue. For example: I am fulfilled and happy. Repeat that phrase as many times as possible daily until it becomes true for self.
Once we change the outdated beliefs that limit us with new beliefs that will make us fly, we can give ourselves what we want in life in a powerful manner.
Learning from the challenges
We have the advantage of choice and the power of learning from challenges. The ones that prefer to dramatize a difficult experience to deal with, feeling sorry for himself or herself, ends up stressing and not progressing or evolving.
I can tell many stories of overcoming challenges like Gandhi, Martin Luther King and many other heroes, yet most people choose to be victims of their own stories.
Want to improve your life? Start right now by following the map shown here. If you need help, ask for it, but please don’t stagnate with so much to learn and act to win what life is offering.
Only we, the authors of our own story can write it as a drama or a comedy. One thing I am sure of, success will be much more pleasant than failure in 2012.
