Seeing Opportunities in Challenges

When faced with overwhelming bills, relationships difficulties, oppressive bosses, unreasonable clients, over booked schedules, never ending to-do list, aggressive people along our path or difficulties with health, are you viewing these as challenges or opportunities?

While most people would view these as difficulties or life altering events, shifting perspective can not only change how you feel about the situation, but also the outcome.

The world will offer to you, what you choose to see in it

If we ask ourselves  “What am I supposed to learn here?” it shifts the energy of the situation. This moves us from a victim mentality of things happening to us, to one of opportunity, learning and growth. This simple question can change our world. We instantly become inquisitive about the the world around us and move from problem defining into problem solving.  This empowering view is a process that you can get excited about.  How can I shift the energy from where I am to where I want to be?

Reflecting on this phrase can change the energy of what we perceive is taking place, how we react to a given situation and more importantly, what can be learned as we become aware of the bigger picture and step outside of our individual pain or fear. 

In the end, isn’t it all about our perception?  Are we having a good life experience where we choose to see the positive in everything we are faced with, or one that is fraught with individualized fear & pain?  Either way, it’s all a choice.

Make Every Moment Count!

Navigating to Inner Peace

With so much chaos in the world, it can seem impossible to find a place of peace, let alone peace within ourselves. We often hear that world peace begins with us, but how do we navigate from where we are to where we want to be? This quote from the Dalai Lama has always been a golden reminder that obtaining peace begins with us.
“Changing the world for the better begins with individuals creating inner peace within themselves.” – Dalai Lama
When our own hearts and minds become peaceful, so does our world.

Inner peace can sometimes seem like a difficult thing to accomplish, like an out-of-reach level of enlightenment that’s only obtained by yogis or spiritual masters. But this is not the case. We go through life shouldering the baggage of someone else’s story, their programmed behaviors and limiting beliefs. If we listen to what is really being said, in the background the distorted messages of “You’re not good enough,” “You’ll never amount to anything,” and “You’re not worthy,” are really old recordings of a story that someone else decided to believe.

Perhaps our great-grandparents were told this by their parents and then shared that with their children. Perhaps a boss hears that from a supervisor on a daily basis and continues the cycle with his employees. Maybe it’s something that a coach or mentor has said with the intent in offering “constructive criticism,” but instead delivers a heartbreaking pain that lasts a lifetime. However it shows up, it’s a limited belief that is then handed down as if it’s a right of passage.

In all of this you have a choice. You can choose to believe what you have been told, or question everything and develop new beliefs about yourself, what you value and who it is that you are. You are worthy, you are amazing, you are always good enough, and so much more. When you know this in your heart to be true, the inner dialogue quiets and you are left with a new way of being, one that has brought you to the the path of inner peace. As every journey begins with a single step, so does your path toward developing inner peace.

Make Every Moment Count,
