3 Ways to Make Positive Change
(or Change Positive!)
I wrote this almost 2 years ago so it was fun to reread it
and to share it with you now. I thought I’d ‘edit’ it but I just didn’t see the need,
all the info I wanted you to have then still stands now!
Hope it’s helpful to you…
In case you might’ve missed my **Newsflash** …
I moved to Shenzhen, China, a week or so ago.
Now, this move did come up rather suddenly,
we visited during spring break…
and yes, her dad showed her schools,
and what life would be like as a ‘local’…
So it was on the horizon, sort of, but she decided to pass,
then she decided to take him up on the offer,
but ONLY if I moved also…
and since I work on my laptop, why would I say no??
…but sometimes change takes adjustment,
especially in your mindset.
So, whether it’s business,
let’s say, you’re an entrepreneur…that is ALL about MINDSET,
you must believe you’ll be successful, that’ll you’ll attain your goals,
business/team building/personal and financial…
you must believe in your best outcome!
It’s the same in taking on a new life adventure.
The reason why I chose these two pictures,
is because they present contrast and some will say,
oh gosh, it rains then 15 minutes the sun is shining,
I don’t like that!
Well, coming from California, I might agree…
from a quick perspective of “I’m not used to that!”…
though I want to present you with 3 ways to shift that MINDSET.
1. You bring an umbrella when it’s raining…OR let me rephrase that:
Be prepared to be flexible, as they say here in Asia,
“be like the bamboo, it sways in the wind, and it bends in strong weather”
it doesn’t snap, so prepare your mind for being flexible about life changes,
rather than hearing your inner resistance and saying, “yeah, I don’t like this” …
start with, “hmm, that’s interesting, what’s one thing I actually LIKE about this?”
I decided that I enjoyed watching it pour and then watching, as if in slo mo,
it all dry back up again, only slightly cooler (only slightly, it IS South East Asia : )
2. Become an observer…
Of the sky, because once you learn weather patterns…
you can spot the dark clouds coming your way, and yes,
that’s a metaphor for handling your thoughts.
Once you become aware of your surroundings,
physical or your own psyche’s ‘dark clouds’…
you can set about prepping your thoughts to head it off…
with a positive shift in your thoughts, your mindset….
and my favorite way…
3. Embrace the change!
I don’t love the rain, even if it’s big fat warm drops on my head…
But I decided to think to myself:
examine what you do love about it,
this ‘IT’ happens to be rain,
and the things I love about it are:
I love watching it come down,
I love hearing it,
I love the way it makes the color green look to my inner eyeball!
& then I finally decided that I didn’t ‘like’ wet clothes,
so if I spot ‘dark clouds’ …
I dress for it, no long pants,
they get wet and stay wet.
I wear something that will dry easily …
that’ll allow me to enjoy the parts,
of the monsooning that I can enjoy…
and soon it’ll all be 95% positive,
and I’ll be out there singing in that warm rain!
And you can prep your mind to start with what you like,
identify those things and build on them.
…and you can do the same with almost everything,
you have to deal with in life.
If you have ‘adverse’ or extreme circumstances,
you can, if you wish…
‘prepare’ your thought patterns,
protecting your mind from negativity,
and become mindfully aware of your surroundings,
and identify what you DO like….about each life task…
and then embrace those parts until you can,
at least, ‘not hate’ each task, because that kind of thinking …
those kinds of ‘thoughts’ will bring down everything…
that’s how low level energy works.
….it brings all your thoughts to focus on the ‘not liking’…
to the resistance, and you’ll feel …
so much lighter and more energetic,
when you focus on what you like …
and what will make your life more positive.
And that’s the quick version of making your life changes positive.
See how important MINDSET is??
It is EVERYTHING!
Start where you are and build up your positivity…
and shift your MINDSET to be, do and have,
whatever it is you want in LIFE!
Call it in by focusing on what you DO want…
the universe will agree and comply!
Things, circumstances, and relationships shift and change all the time in life,
Stay flexible and open to everyday miracles, also…train your brain to work WITH you,
in embracing anything that comes your way or that YOU purposely create,
It’s just easier and more fun…
Challenging times occur, it’s not the challenge, it’s how you react to it!
Cheers, till next time…
peace & abundance to you,
