Let’s say the power goes off in your house and as you’re fumbling to leave the house you drop your keys. It’s dark and you’re on your knees, looking for you keys but you can’t find them. You look up, frustrated and you see a glimmer of light coming through the window. You realize that’s the street light. So, you make it to the front door and walk to the light and begin looking for your keys there. I mean, there’s light there.
I know… absurd. Who would do that, you’re asking?
Well, many of us do, in a sense. We have an issue, a problem, a dilemma… and it’s our problem, you know? Internal. But we go outside to look for the solution. If this changes or that person changes or if I had more energy or less energy… I don’t know, you fill in the blank there.
The solution is within you. YOU need to change… And don’t misunderstand me. I am all about casting your cares on the Lord or whatever faith you practice. But even when Jesus healed people, those people had to go do something. Go and sin no more. Get in that pool. Rub your eyes with that mud. Get out of the boat. Etc…
You HAVE to own your breakthrough, your miracle. YOU are the instrumental piece to changing your life.
Emotions are so misleading. Yes, some emotions are great but even those are misleading. You shouldn’t rely on your emotions solely to determine what kind of day you’re having today or how your life will turn out. Your Pastor or Priest, John Maxwell, Wayne Dyer, Tony Robbins, your friend… None of these people can really change your circumstances. You might feel great when you’re in their presence but outside in the parking lot is “real life” waiting for you.
Even the Bible says in Romans 12:2, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind”. It doesn’t say by the renewed mind. It’s not a one time process. It’s ongoing. And I’m sorry to say that it is not “imaginary or psychological crap”. It is real, guys.
Change your state… And you can change how you feel at WILL. Yes, at WILL. Feel confident, powerful, invincible, sexy, etc… Or if you prefer Wayne Dyer’s words… If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
In my next blog post I will explain how you can change your state… Stop back by!
