Understanding Your Core Values
Where is your focus?
A spiritual journey: Life is not going to care about your arguments and it will go uninterrupted in its own way. It’s you who is supposed to pay attention to life and manage your choices and focus accordingly.
Normally when we are facing bad times, we make our thinking in the same way and we lose hope and give up efforts. The world seems like it is full of troubles and pain and this is the wrong way to look at all this.
In this scenario, we are simply underrating the world because of our troubles and we are making the world look like a place full of sadness. The truth is that when you are feeling happy you find the world a better place to live and you also consider it hopeless when the times are bad.
It’s your way of looking at things that makes you even sadder. The world works like a mirror to us, if we look at it with sadness it reflects sadness as well. I also believe that the times never remain the same and the hard times will not remain with you forever. Every night has its dawn and to see the dawn all you have to do is to hang on with the troubles through the night.
Most of us are scared of leaving our comfort zone to achieve something greater. We sometimes avoid visiting a place where we have never been but life takes us to that situation anyway. All of this is fear that we face and we think of the bad things that can happen, instead we should embrace these situations as a challenge to us and realize that this the way we are going to fulfill our purpose that our future holds for us.
What you learn with the experience is that the world is not a place to be afraid of instead it’s the most helping place for all of your actions and desires.
Yes, it’s true that a boat that never goes in the sea to sail is not going to get damaged, but we all know that this is not going to let it fulfill its purpose either. There was a reason for which the boat was built and this is not achieving that right now.
The same thing can be said for us, we also need to do what we are supposed to be doing. We are made to grow on a personal level with the experience that we get from the world by meeting new people or by going to new places. A person who is not having a social life and doesn’t talk to anyone cannot get hurt, but at the same time we cannot call that way of living an ideal life. Our consciousness sees through the pain and troubles that come to us and gives us answers to what we want to know. All the suffering gives depth to our thoughts and allows us to open up for whatever the future is keeping in store for us.
Exchange your suffering and troubles for good times. Focus on the good. Remember: “Where focus goes, energy flows.” Tony Robbins
