Thoughts are things, and self pity is one of those insidious, repulsive habits.
Yet it’s tempting, isn’t it?
It’s one of those bizarre pleasures that takes us back to being a kid again. That moment when you moan “poor me”, and ironically, that’s what actually happens.
That word “poor” suddenly has two meanings. Not only is your mindset in sad shape, but you end up blocking the positive mindset that’s going to take you to a life of authenticity and abundance.
After all, how can you create your dream life with a negative attitude?
So let’s shift that, shall we? Let’s start with the following thoughts:
- How bad is it really? Take a moment to imagine other people in the world that have it a whole lot worse than you do. (Yep, they’re out there.) In fact, volunteering with people who are needy can do a world of good for them and for your own perception of your life.
- What direction are you NOT going in because you’re too preoccupied with your own issues? Shift the focus to your next step. As Martin Luther King said “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
- What are you NOT being grateful for? Truly, there must be something in our life or someone – that you can feel positive about.
- If you don’t believe me, watch the movie: “It’s A Wonderful Life”. (Whether it’s the holidays or not), it might bring a tear to your eye and a smile to your face (and renewed hope that you really DO have it pretty darn good).
The bottom line is: It’s time to pull your mind out of the proverbial pity party gutter, and get back to being the fabulous, incredibly talented and powerful human that you are.
Then, you will be living the life you love that’s truly in alignment with who you are; with freedom, purpose and abundance.
