Your Future’s So Bright…You Gotta Wear Shades

Hello Everyone,

Happy Monday.

Today I wanted to talk about a way of being that can be difficult at times, especially when we are in the middle of a recession and facing all of the challenges that are going on in the world today.

Last week we talked about Gratitude and Being Grateful, which is critical.  Today I want to talk about taking that Gratitude and applying it to the future…to give you a sense of Optimisim….in other words…I feel that it is very important to be “optimistic.”

Last week we talked about taking your focus away from all of the negatives, and turning off the news, and letting yourself focus on the good things in your life….and being greatful for them.

Well the same is true of optimism.  It is very important to understand that fear is a great motivator.  And in a society motivated by money, fear is one of the key ways to generate revenue.  So most media and almost all news out there is designed to make us fear a possible thing that may occur in the future.

Try to not watch the news for just a period of 30 days.  You will feel disconnected especially if you are addicted to the 24 hour news stations.  You will feel lost.  So what you will need to do is fill that time watching and reading inspiring books.

As they say “Garbage in, Garbage out!”  If you fill your mind with all of the bad stuff out there, that is what you may end up experiencing, at least in your mind, as you live the fears.

But….if you instead read inspiring books….read The Bible, read books written by Wallace D. Wattles, read books written by Anthony Robbins…..etc, there are so many books out there and so many sources of powerful and uplifting messages that you will have no choice but to invision a future of hope and happiness.

When you spend your day knowing that all of the turmoil that you are experiencing in your life today is simply god giving you the challenges to develope you so you will be an improved and more powerful person tomorrow, so you will be better able to contribute to the world tomorrow, you will realize that everything is about growth.

You can then take that same realization and apply it to society and realize that a recession/depression is nothing more than a cleansing.  That everything is cyclical and our society will continue to grow in a positive direction.  That a threatened government shutdown is a necessary pain for the country to get its spending under control…to get our country into a better financial future.

I don’t know the grand plan….none of us do…but I do know that I have seen over and over again, especially in my life and the lives of my patients that personal challenges will almost always let a person come out of the back end as a stronger person, who is better able and more confident to handle life and contribut to those around them.

As a very basic example….at the age of 24 I herniated a disc in my lower back and ended up having back surgery.  I was told that I would never play sports again or ride a bike again or jog again etc….  Instead that one challenge in my life, which was devistating to me at the time…changed my life and put me on a completely different life path which 16 years later ( I am a slow learner LOL!) landed me in Chiropractic school…which has allowed me to help thousands of people improve their health.

We are all here for a purpose….we are all growing towards our best selves.  We were taught in church this weekend…”Without God we can’t….Without us he won’t”

In otherwords, if you don’t have faith in a brighter future, it doesn’t matter what blessings or opportunities come your way…if you belief that we are all “going to hell in a handbasket” you will miss the opportunities and live a life or mediocrity and dispair.

However, if you believe you are here for a purpose…then read inspiring books….and trust that your life is going somewhere and ask yourself “What can I learn from the challenges that I face today that will make me a better person for tomorrow?”  Learn the lesson, become better, and move to a bright and fulfilling future.

Sorry for rambling on today, but this is a very important subject.

Go for it today…live a life of hope…inspire those around you by your words and actions.

Have a great day!
