You See Not All Is Actually As Perceived So Breakout

Think about the number of times in your life something turned out different than what you thought it would. Be specific in your thinking. Clearly recall a number of situations that turned out different than what you presumed about them. Now…

What are the lessons you learned because of each of those situations? In those lessons, are the answers to many of your questions in life.

Answers with appropriate actions bring solutions.

But, as additional help let’s look at some examples of how not all is as perceived. Maybe these examples will give you further impetus to shift your thinking from problems to opportunities.

Thinking through problems to the point where you see the related opportunities is the point where you begin to realize your true potential in life.

  • With every cloud casting its foreboding shadow there is also the potential of life giving rain.
  • The threatening winds of a storm also bring the seeds of renewed plant life.
  • A flood not only inundates…at its passing, it brings about renewal of the soil.
  • The tide slams against the shore but it also cleanses the sands.
  • People can be cruel but their cruelty can serve to define the need for change.
  • Life is hard but in overcoming its difficulties comes the ease of good fortune.

See what I mean?

Not all is as perceived and it’s up to you to find the opportunities.

Here’s one thing you can do to act on your opportunities.

Too many of us build a jail cell around our potential in life and, then, we’re self-convinced we’ve thrown away the key. As a result, we’re confined for life in the jail cell of limited thinking.

The most solitary, confinement jail cell in all the world is right between your ears. The horror of that confinement is it is so eminently escapable and, yet, we remain chained to the wall of its dungeon.

It’s dark, dank, depressing and the rats love us for being there because they know, if they hang around long enough we’ll be their food.

Do you really want to become food for the rats in the world that encourage your confinement?

Break out! Find the key and get the hell out of there before the rats do get you!

The key?…Think about your break out this way.

At the beginning of life, a butterfly is trapped in solitary confinement in their own jail cell…a cocoon or, more technically, a chrysalis.

What’s a butterfly’s key to their break out from the cocoon?

It’s that they think they can and their desire to do so is greater than their resistance to paying the price. And, so it is for you!

If you want to have your break out in life, you must believe you can. You must create such a strong desire that you will push through any resistance to your goal.

Find your passion…the emotion…to break out and make out in life!

Here is a link to several articles to help you find your passion.

What are you going to do to change your perceptions and breakout of the limits of your current thinking?
