Did you ever ask yourself, “Why does this keep happening to me over and over
again?” Well there is a life lesson here. It could be with relationships, never
enough money, getting fired, anger, inability to forgive, or just not enjoying life.
Life seems to go bye very fast and each moment is precious, so let’s not waste any
more time and seek your personal solution.
First identify a recurring problem which is your life lesson and then ask yourself,
“What benefit or benefits am I receiving from having this problem.” Make a list.
What beliefs do I have that is causing my problem? Make another list. Beliefs
create thoughts, which create feelings and then actions. Next change that negative
belief to a positive one. For instance, I have a short fuse and find it difficult to
control my anger. My belief is I don’t have control of my emotions. I actually
learned this angry response from my father. My new belief is I control my anger
and emotions by being loving and compassionate.
We are so addicted to our beliefs and thoughts, with the need to be right or blame
someone else for this reoccurring problem. This is what I call your ego is running
the show. So take responsibility for creating this situation and ask yourself, “What
is it about me I have to make peace with? What is the message I have not been
getting? Have a strong desire to change your belief and the thinking that is creating
your problem, and acknowledge this is actually an opportunity for positive change.
Sometimes life is not fair so don’t get caught up in anger, resentment or just
feeling sorry for yourself. Instead of worrying about what you cannot control, shift
your energy to what you can control.” It’s not what happens to you in life, but how
you react to what’s happening to you. Life’s challenges will constantly provide
situations to test your commitment toward controlling your reactions to situations.
You have the choice of going through life feeling it’s a wonderful teacher or being
the victim. Please remember that the best is about to come as you observe
situations with different eyes.
