Grasp the steering wheel of your life!
Many people do not realize, or have a hard time understanding, that YOU are the only person that has control over your life. We are brought up with images, thoughts, outside influences and beliefs of what we should do. When in reality we can do and become anything we want if we that's what we truly desire. This touches on the law of attraction but also the power of the mind in our lives. What you think about and focus on in your life is what is going to be manifested in front of you time and time again.
Think about a goal you have in your life. It can be as big as your job, love life, money or as minute as going to the grocery store to get dinner ingredients or washing your car. Everything big or small happens because you put some thought to it and decided to focus on doing that. If you are not getting what you want out of life or not sure what step to take next that is perfectly fine. The worst thing you can do is to lose focus and give negative energy to the situation. Law of attraction states that "like attracts like", therefore when you worry, stress, or get angry over something not working out how it should be, you are just attracting more of those negative feelings back to you. So your job is not ideal right now or not the one you want. So you are not in a relationship yet or are not in your ideal one. So it rained today and you did not get to wash your car. All of these things still happened for a reason. If you are constantly complaining about your job and going to work with a chip on your shoulder, then the universe has no reason but to keep manifesting a work environment that is bleak and un-fulfilling. Why not instead look at your job with gratitude and show thanks for even having a job? Or put into action the steps of looking for a new job. If you are struggling in a bad relationship then take a step back and look at the things you are grateful for in your partner. You could be so consumed with everything they do that drives you crazy or is not fitting your image of what they should be, that the universe is just continuing to bring those situations up because that is all you are focusing on. If it rained all day and you were unable to wash your car, then be grateful for the rain that the earth needed or that you were able to get other things done in place of washing the car.
All of these situations as well as any other in your life happened for a reason and the affect of them depends on how you react to them. Take hold of the steering wheel and drive your life in the direction you want it to take. You can choose to be upset about things going wrong, or your day not going like it should have. But then really you are just driving your car down a bad road and have no one to blame but yourself! There are so many lesson in this I could go on forever, but basically just choose the path of gratefulness and positivity, it will literally change the road you take in your life. Let go of stress and worry and just look at the beauty of your life unfolding in front of you in every way that it was meant to. I will leave you with a personal quote. I challenge all of you to look at something in your life, big or small and truly see the affect you had bringing it to you and the way you reacted to it. It doesn't have to be bad either, you can most certainly bring amazing things in your life and react to them with complete joy and gratitude. Now drive your car down the highway of life!
"It's OK if you don't know how much more you can handle. It's fine if you don't know what to do next. Eventually, you'll let go of how things should be and start to see possibility based on reality. It's YOUR life, grasp the steering wheel and force yourself to pay attention to where you're going." - Wendy Keller, Author
