To achieve change you must fully realize why you deserve to live a life you love living. This comes when you shift your perception of yourself and improve your self-image. The best way to improve your self-image is to release patterns of thinking or behavior that are not in harmony with the life you want to live. Most of us have limiting perceptions of ourselves that create a sense of doubt in our life. However we have access to the mind of the infinite where there are no limitations. We can release our uncomfortable paradigms, feel positive change, making all things possible.
Paradigms are a multitude of habits of thought and behavior. They are habits that make positive change feel uncomfortable and fears that say we might fail. All of us have paradigms that are limiting. These are the ones that keep us in our comfort zone. When we seek growth and change, paradigms are past masters at keeping us where we are, through previous failures, ingrained beliefs about our potential or improper use of our imagination.
In order to overcome these limiting paradigms we need to grow a larger sense of deserving for our dream. This sense of deserving comes from the infinite potential that is within each of us. Identifying this potential is how we shift our sense of self from the past to our higher self who we truly can become.
Sometimes our true potential is hard to accept. Acceptance however allows you to move confidently through the process of building your dream. The universal power is abundant and without limitation and you are one with this universal power, presence and mind.
Often we hold onto experiences that are connected to resentment, anger and guilt. It may be difficult to let these grudges go because of time and pain. It takes far more effort to let go of something than it does to pick something new up. To live the life you want to, it is necessary to let these go.
Here are some exercises to prepare for change. There are no right answers. Only your answers.
- Write out why you believe all things are possible for your life.
- Write out past experiences that you need to discard.
- Write out thought patterns or behaviors that are in conflict with the life you would like to live.
John Homer Miller said. “your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.”
