Lights, camera, action.
Many of us live our lives in total reaction to how our day unfolds: if positive things happen, we are positive, and if we get some shitty bounces, that’s normally matched with a shitty mood.
What we fail to see is that we are not engaging our most powerful asset: our super power of CHOICE. We all have the power to be intentional in the way we live. We can avoid much of the daily drama by being the directors of our own lives. And most importantly, our minds.
Let’s face it: our life is a movie we are watching. Our eyes tell our brain what it sees and the brain comes to it’s conclusions on how we feel about the movie. Without our directing it, our brain will decide if this movie is a comedy, a horror or a drama. And our emotions will follow accordingly.
We are the only person on this planet who can direct our minds to think a certain way, and if we are not taking that job seriously our mind runs on million year old software (think caveman days) and we will most likely look at most of life as an inconvenience, a danger or a problem.
Our brain is wired for survival, not our happiness, so it is up to us to direct it to consider the silver lining and possible solutions to it’s perceived disaster story. But this takes effort.
We are conditioned to listen to our brain and identify with what it’s telling us. Brain says “hey this sucks” and we agree unconsciously, “yes this does suck, I’m pissed!” And our potential of a wonderful day is now lightyears away and we will analyze this issue to death and commit the rest of the day to dwelling on it.
If we want change, the mind is where to begin. If we own our responsibility of being the director, it will empower us to be able to:
What I need you to understand is the power you have and how that can recreate your reality. Own your personal power and you never have to play the victim again. You’re in the driver seat, so how do you want to experience this movie we call life?
Happiness does not happen on accident. It’s a choice we must make again and again. Life isn’t happening to you, it’s simply happening and you’re the only thinker in your mind who can decide how you want to view these situations.
So the camera is rolling in your mind, and how are you going to direct this masterpiece that is to be your life?
Only you can choose, so create a masterpiece that you’ll be happy to watch back again and again. Because our movie becomes our memories.
Sending love & light,
