Thought for the Day

Stand in your power…….the solution always lies within.  If you allow it to, life will have you at its mercy.  You will be knocked down and winded every time something happens that wasn’t in the plan.  Notice your reaction when something happens externally.  We tell our stories and in those stories we always give the power to the other people, to the circumstances.  We position ourselves as powerless.  When we lose awareness of our selves within those stories they run our life. They make our choices. Over and over again we use the same judgments and thoughts to try and navigate our way out.

But the only way out,  is through. It is by connecting with the power that we all have. The power that resides inside each one of us to stand and to listen to our hearts instead of the voice that continually gives our power away. Intellectually we understand that things  are going to happen and they won’t always be the things we had planned. If we react and have a meltdown every time then we have empowered “out there” and we need to reclaim “in here.” We must learn to trust that part of our mind that we can’t see and be the observer of our own thoughts. You are enough, you have always been enough, you have always had the power, now you just need to use it.

Stephen R. Covey said “Leader or Victim?  That’s essentially the choice we all face today.  And more than ever before, there’s not much middle ground.  Either we lead effectively, in our businesses, our families, our communities, even our personal lives, or we’re tossed about by the circumstances that surround us. Anytime we think the problem is “out there” that thought is the problem. We empower what’s out there to control us.”
