We have desires, we have thoughts and we live in a world where life journeys will bring us to dangerous crossroads of life. We don’t always remember them all, but they happen. It’s an unavoidable fact of living with many others whose paths we cross everyday, every hour, every second. It threatens to suck you in like the vortex of a powerful whirlpool.
This is a subject that brought back long ago memories for me. Myself, family and some friends have lived through some horrendous situations. Strife and war bring deathly conditions. Often what transpires are never made known. They are never written about. And the few times they are, shock reverberates throughout the globe. Remember the “Rape of Nanking”? “How can people do these things?” I assure you, they do happen. And so too in many parts of the world, war or no war. But kudos for the human spirit. The people there did not sit back a bemoaned their fate. Nanking is now a thriving metropolis built from the ashes of WW2.
There will always be times in one’s life when extremely tough decisions need to be made. For some, they will be dangerous more often than for others. How does this happen to me…you moan. And that’s just the beginning.
But let me tell you this and in no uncertain terms,
“Only You Can Change Your Life For The Better!”
For some, you would have to face the conditions of where you are. It may be you are escaping a bad dictator. Maybe you are escaping from a dangerous town. What ever it is, you can always make your life better. There are examples of people who have been in far worse situations who have succeeded spectacularly. It may have taken them longer, but hey, they are enjoying the fruits of success.
I’m not declaring that you sit, meditate and hey, presto! All things have changed into nirvana. Of course not. You put your desire, a plan of action into motion. You build it step by step. There will be many who will come to cross your path. Some of them will be who you seek to offer you the boost you want. They come because you asked.
How To Take Advantage of Dangerous Crossroads
Focus on the Good
If you don’t want the things in your life that you abhor, then you need to change those things into what you like.
There’s insanity in expecting a troublesome car to cure itself when you refuse to repair it or get a better one. If you’re waiting for a disastrous and life threatening situation, this is it.
Think of the things you want.
Most often difficult problems come and put you in a quandary because your life have been a string of thoughts you do not want. You keep thinking of them because they keep cropping up everywhere you turn. In fact, the more vivious and dangerous such relationships are, the more they are likely to reappear. Why? You’re always thinking of them.
You must turn these thoughts off. Think of the opposite in fact. Think of having a beautiful partner in your life who will make you feel safe, secure, happy, wealthy, fun, etc. for example. You have been meeting the ones you have been meeting all the time who make you feel terrible simply because you keep thinking of what you don’t want. Therefore you are in fact looking for the same ones over and over again.
You have forgotten about this. In fact you have been blinded by much of the daily grind or what transpires around your life. You’ve been feeling so bad, you have not been appreciating yourself. It’s so amazing how life becomes better for you immediately you do this. This is not a cure for all that ails you, but it does begin a change you will love. Appreciate your dog. Appreciate your hair. Appreciate your taste buds. Smile at your neighbour. Say hello to yourself and your friends with your heart. You’ll start to look much better in fact.
Associate With Those Who Have What You Want
How do you do this? As you work out your desired focus on a better life, you will find many ups and downs. As you seek information, clarity and help, there will be serendipity that happens. Events, situations, circunstances and all manner of information will come to cross your path and come to your notice. Pay attention. Take action and get to them.
You will begin to find people you can trust and there will others who become your mentors. Even books that you read will come to your aid. Asyou develop your life desires, many like minded people will appear. You may have found your associations.
Ah, procrastination does not exist here. Giving yourself a set time for success is like declaring, “If I fail to make it in 5 years, I give up!” Guess what you just declared to yourself, the world and the energies all around you? You’ve declared, “I’m already a failure!” You’ve failed. You’ve given up.
Instead, just know (not try) that you will succeed because this is the life I love to have. And go get it! Over and over again. Everything that comes your way is not an obstacle. It’s simply there for you to adjust or change your thinking a little or alot so that you will achieve all that you desire.
Oh, and let me tell you a secret of success. The moment you start the change, you have already achieved it. It only matters how much more of it you want. You build success, you do it again and again and again.
An Opportunity For Greatness
Dangerous times you have loathed are full of energy. This is the energy you have decided to use and say enough is enough. I am sick of it. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. I don’t want all these things around me any more.
I want a better life. In fact, I want a great life. I declare to the universe, to my god to make me one with him or her and build me greatness. This is the journey I choose. This is the life I want. This is who I AM.
I AM…(you choose).
