Acting “as if” you already have the things you want or are already living the life you want to live is very beneficial to you. You don’t have to pull yourself apart with the usual questions like “should I do this” or “is this the way I should do things” The reason is clear because if you were already the person you want to be you wouldn’t be worrying about insignificant things. You would know how to act;know what to expect;and see the results of your actions clearly. You wouldn’t be worried about money, or your job, or your love life because you would have already solved those problems and be living life the way you want to live it.
So try it today. Act “as if” you are already the person you want to be. Act “as if” you already have accomplished the goals you set for yourself. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at the difference it can make in your life.
Be your own barometer. How can you do that? By noticing your feelings in different situations.
When you feel good; when you feel open; when you feel ANYTHING is possible then you know you’re in the right place… the place where dreams come true; the place where miracles happen.
But when you feel nervous, anxious, angry, jealous or insecure, then you’ve entered the land of “blockage” the place where you and the things you want stagnate and just seem to fall apart.
Practice feeling good. Practice being grateful for what you have.Practice being happy for the good fortune of others. Be kind in your words and deeds. Move forward in life with positive expectation and a smile.
How long will you hold on…to the bad feelings you may have about another? How many seconds, minutes, weeks, months, years (you get the point) will you hang on and remember how bad that person was or how rotten the situation was- even if it has absolutely no bearing on your life as you know it today?
And you know what I’m talking about- if you haven’t experienced it you’ve seen it…your aunt complaining about what her best friend did to her twenty years ago…and her friend has been dead for the last ten. But she still carries on, and in your voice you can hear the hurt and how badly it makes her feel…but she keeps on anyway. And this is just an example- it could also be you carrying on about what someone might have said or done;just hurting yourself, really.
Stop and think…is this really getting you anywhere? You know, if someone hurt you through their words or deeds and you can still discuss it with them calmly…then do so. Talk it out. Resolve it and move on. But if that is not possible then let it go. Free yourself from all that unnecessary pain because you don’t deserve it. You deserve to feel good about yourself and the world around you.
Are you keeping track…of the things you want to accomplish? Do you keep a journal of what you want and the steps you’ve taken (or need to take) to set your dreams in motion and do you take the time to review what you’ve written daily?
Keeping written records not only keeps you organized but keeps you inspired…you see what you want and see what you’ve done to get there. it gives you motivation to keep moving and reviewing them at night cements them in your dreams.
Is there someone in your life that you haven’t spoken to in awhile- after having a silly disagreement?
Maybe it was an argument years ago- nobody eve n remembers what it was about, you just know you’re angry about it and so-and-so never should have said or done what they did.
But still it goes on- you never call this person anymore. You never stop to visit them or drop them a line. You miss them- and sometimes you think that you should reach out. You want to…but then you don’t. “Let them call me,” you say to yourself. And then you go on feeling bad.
Today- right now-this is it- your sign. Yes, I’m talking to you. Call that person today. Make amends. Life is too short. You’ll be happy you did.
