Have you ever stopped and really examined the behaviors and beliefs of your fellow man? I have, and sometimes when I do this, I’m elated as I watch people who seem to “get it” while at other times I’m saddened as I see people who simply struggle in most areas of their life. The one big commonality in the “get it” group seems to be that they live in a place of gratitude. On the other hand, the one big commonality among those who appear to constantly struggle, appears to be their opinion that “stuff” just seems to happen to them – a victim’s mindset.
I have certainly experienced life from both perspectives – long before I was even aware they existed – and I can tell you, living in gratitude is SO much better! I’ve come to learn that one cannot move onto where they claim they want to be if they continue to live in resistance to where they currently are!! Gratitude. We must be grateful for what we have and where we’re at. Only then can we open the pathway of possibility to having what we want.
In our teachings with MKMMA we’re constantly told that it’s all about our thoughts – that’s where it all begins. Don’t focus on what you don’t want – focus on what you DO want. Law of Substitution works really well when we implement it! So I have been working consistently in creating laser focus of what I do want and diligently shifting and adjusting my thoughts when needed, and this is what I will tell you:
I typically don’t sleep well at all – haven’t for years, but the other night when I was still awake at 2:30 a.m., I started to examine my thoughts and what might be keeping me awake. To my surprise, I had a laundry list of events, circumstances, issues, challenges, situations – call them what you will – of happenings in my life that are VERY substantial; in fact, most any one of them would be enough to put me over the edge – that is, in the past. What I found was a calmness within as I went through the list identifying each and every “issue”. I ended up congratulating myself for handling all of these things as well as I’m handling them. I found myself in a place of gratitude – grateful to MKMMA, Mark, Davene, the guides, the students. It’s the internal shifting and growing that allows me to view things differently. I am so very thankful to have found MKMMA, and it is clear to me that trusting the system and doing the work is setting the stage for payoffs that I will continue to experience for the rest of my life. This is REALLY powerful stuff! I, for one, am eternally grateful for all the Lord’s blessings in my life. I deserve the very best, and I accept it now!!
