Sometimes emotions, procrastination, or roadblocks leave you unmotivated to commit to your own personal happiness. It is common as we get older to think about the purpose of our life, and our soul seeks to draw nearer to God. How do you reignite that fire within you and live the life you want? You only need this one thing to set you on your path of purpose and transform your life…a mindset shift for success.
Create Your Vision
When I was younger, I had a vision for my life that included a house, a family, a successful career and a “respectable” level of partying. The American dream, right? My desire was clear, and I would do whatever it took to achieve my goal. I got everything I wanted by the time I was 30. Therefore I had a happy life, right?
The reality is that I burned out early and became increasingly UNhappy. The house consumed resources. My marriage was failing, but divorce was NOT in my successful picture. I mean really, what would people say? As a result I had the guilt of a working mother. I exerted extraordinary effort to be successful at work to serve my ego and financially justify my lifestyle! My entitled male counterparts enjoyed stay-at-home wives. They never had to leave to pick up the kids by 6:30, cook dinner or do homework. It’s a common story. Work twice as hard to make 75% of the pay. I was deeply aware of these inequities built into western ambition and culture, and so I persevered.
“Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.”
Have a Strong Desire
After all of my “success,” I still desired lasting happiness. I learned that I had to shift my mindset to the feeling of peace and happiness, instead of getting things to try and make me happy. Shift your mindset and transform your life…
- Create a specific vision of the life you want in your mind.
- Notice your thoughts. If you hear yourself asking “When will I ever get out of this situation?” you have a burning desire for change deeply within you.
- Focus continually on your desire and vision, and make it stronger than the fear of changing.
Thinking about what you desire, instead of what you don’t want, it’s what transforms desire into reality. Controlling what you think about is the secret to a successful life.
“A man is as he thinketh.”
Be Willing To See Things Differently
Your willingness is everything. When you have the courage and willingness to see things differently, then the objects of your desire will occur in your life. You can’t create new things with old thoughts. Here is your first act of willingness. Write this down, and say this every morning before you begin your day—
“I am willing to make positive changes, and do things differently to achieve the life I want.”
This will produce outrageously quick results. Your Willingness will propel you further than anything you can imagine. Write it, speak it, believe it and then you will manifest it. All I knew 20 years ago was get a degree, get married, have some babies and keep your nose to the grindstone. However, the spiritual power of your mind will produce what you really desire…happiness.
Mindset Shifting 101
The key is to shift your mindset by focusing on what is truly important. First, shift your Desire to be committed to how you want to FEEL. Not things or milestones. Are things worth more than the misery of its attainment? As we mature and grow closer to God, we gain clarity. Things fade and people come and go. But YOU are constant in your life. Your emotions, health, and wellbeing ARE you. Mindset shifting is a requirement for the attainment of inner peace.
Summary to Transformation
Feel the desires of your heart and be willing to redefine what success Feels like on the inside. Shift your mindset to the life you envision and your life will transform. I promise you, the satisfaction of a loving and fulfilling life is magnificent and so worth the effort.
