Have you ever said, “I hate my life” or felt like you wish you could press the restart button and start over? Perhaps you’ve wondered, “how on earth did I get here?!” These are common thoughts when you’ve gotten off track or aren’t on any track at all. Take a look at the article below to see how shifting your mindset and focusing on what’s possible not only energizes you, it can actually help you start transforming your life!
Feel the energy of the statement, “I hate my life.” There’s nothing positive about it. In fact, it’s completely negative!
One of the main challenges of focusing on the negative is that what you continually focus on is what you give energy to. And what you give energy to expands. What you’re actually declaring, giving energy to, and expanding is, “All I can see in front of me is everything I don’t like, everything I don’t want. And, I feel strongly about it. In fact, I feel so strongly, I am going to declare that I hate it.”
By focusing your thoughts here, there’s no space for you to appreciate what you do have and what is great in your life. All you’re seeing is the black and the gray. You don’t even notice the things that are brightly colored, positive, and wonderful in your life. What you’re not seeing are the opportunities that are right in front of you, because all you’re looking for is what is “wrong” with your life.
What’s the downside of saying, I hate my life?
What you focus on expands. So by focusing on hating your life, you’ll create exactly that – a life that you can’t stand!
One of the quickest ways to catapult yourself out of this is to declare the exact opposite, “I LOVE my life.”
At first, this may feel uncomfortable. It might even seem silly. However, the more you say it, the more you’ll notice that there are actually things that you do love about your life. It might be your home. Perhaps a special person in your life. Or your children. How about your garden or the beautiful blue sky? What about your family? Or your neighbors?
It’s all about what lens you’re seeing the world through.
Imagine you’re wearing a pair of glasses. How you see the world depends on what lens you’re looking through. Are you looking through a dark lens, where everything looks gloomy and sad? Or a narrow lens where you can’t see the big picture? Perhaps your view is more complicated with bifocals or even trifocals!
Can you see the world clearly through your lens? Or, metaphorically speaking, has it been too long since you had your eyes tested!?
You get to choose your lens. It’s you who gets to say how you see and experience your world.
Are you willing to change your lens so that you see things in a different way?
If so, here’s how to go from saying, “I hate my life” to “I absolutely love my life”:
- Notice what lens you’re seeing the world through.
- Practice saying out loud – as loud as you can – “I love my life.” Really put some passion behind it! Declare it while you’re doing the dishes, while you’re driving – at every opportunity!
- Notice what shows up. Pay attention to what shifts and changes – in you and in others.
When you’re looking through a brighter, larger and more positive lens, you’re automatically going to see everything in a different light. And not only this, you’ll also see things that you hadn’t even noticed before.
Has that ever happened to you, where you suddenly noticed something that was there all the time? It was right in front of your nose, but you couldn’t see it because you were coming at it with a different attitude, or from a different perspective. Imagine what you’ll see when you love your life all the time…!
Are you yearning to love absolutely everything about your life? Does the thought of actually getting into action to create that life excite you? Are you ready to get started now?! If so, then I have something special for you!
