How to change your life....basics

Why do so many of us struggle to play the game of life and feel we cannot win? Why do we struggle day in, day out and feel overwhelmed by taxes, relationships, the cost of living, unrest in the middle east, the threat of tsunamis etc etc?

Many of us feel overwhelmed by it all, and most often the frustration we feel turns to anger - at our partners, children, the government, our parents, teachers, even ourselves. And we act on this anger, very often hurting those we feel are to blame, with cutting words and/or physical violence. Or we turn the anger in on ourselves and become anxious and depressed.

But we need to know that angrily blaming others or ourselves will not fix the problem. It will only create more problems. Because it's not about who is to blame, it's about the fact that people create their own reality, people get exactly what they wish for. Yes, that's entirely true. People get what they constantly concern themselves with.

But! I hear you cry, but what about wars and earthquakes and accidents, the death of babies and the suffering of good people? Surely we don't want this? We don't sit down and think 'I wish my nephew would get cancer' do we??No, not in so many words we dont', that's true. But we can and do eventually create that which we constantly concern ourselves with.

What I mean is, we read the newspapers, watch the news, watch movies, watch documentaries and so are constantly fed a diet of what's happening in the world, 90% of which is only the bad stuff . And each time millions of us watch or hear or read about the same bad happening, it is reinforced in millions of minds, affecting what we think about and worry about. And creating more of the same. Think long and hard enough about something and it will come true. So be careful what you wish for. Because you will get it.

In future articles I will show you how this happens and I will show you how to turn your mind away from bad thinking, teach you how to think only about good things, so that good things happen to you, your family and your friends.

And I will also show you why some people will get quick results doing this and others will struggle, despite doing the same thing. This is what is known as your destiny in some circles. But please know right now, that you can change your destiny. You can because this is the Planet of Choice, and you can choose to keep on looking towards the light and conquer the bad cards life might have dealt you.

I will give you opportunities to find out who you are and what you're up against, what you were born with, so that you know what you're dealing with and can plan accordingly.

And then you can play the game of life, and win!

I will leave with this thought until next time, from Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren,whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Please note: I do not follow any religion - I just take a bit of what's good from whichever source is useful :-)
