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.
