When dealing with the various situations, challenges and circumstances in your life, you might want to consider the "Possibilities Thinkers Creed".
This was taught to me in the mid 1990's. Most people today have never heard of it.
Consider this powerful "creed":
"When faced with a mountain -
I will not quit.
I will keep on striving until I climb over,
find a pass through,
tunnel underneath or
simply stay where I am and turn the mountain into a gold mine!"
The "mountain" is what you perceive as your "problem or adversity".
The magic is being able to turn what appears to be negative into a positive with simply a change in perspective. At an event several years ago a man asked me about the concept of "looking for and always finding the golden nuggets" in life.
The idea is that when you are digging for gold, you have to move tons of dirt to find just a few ounces of gold. But you are not looking for the dirt, you are looking for the gold.
So in life, stop looking for and focusing on the "dirt" (the negative, the problems, the adversity you are facing).
The question is when you are digging in the dirt (dealing with life's challenges) and there just is NO gold there (there IS no positive you can find), what do you do?
The dirt is what we perceive as life's problems, negatives, and adversity. Generally you can "find the gold" in every situation you deal with in life if you simply look and change your perspective.
But what if there is simply NO gold, but ONLY dirt?
Then, since you are in the dirt anyway, laugh like a kid, and play in the mud!
The dirt IS the gold!
You are meant to let go, surrender to the Universe, relax, and stop being attached to the outcome YOU think is best.
Just like in the Possibilities Thinkers Creed, the mountain itself (the problem/adversity) becomes the prize!
This is how to be a wizard in life.
You can turn any situation or location you find yourself in into your private sanctuary, your personal "retreat", and your own wonderful "university".
I have made the situations and locations in my life the perfect place for me so that I gain more benefits in every area of my life than anyone can imagine.
Everyday I am thankful, grateful and so appreciate to be HERE....right NOW...in this moment.
How are you dealing with YOUR mountains? I suggest you embrace the Possibilities Thinkers Creed". You will feel better, and your life will BE better.
