How To Be Happy & Live The Life You Choose!

horizons sky and tracks

“Have you ever noticed some people just seem to want to rain on your parade? They can’t help but share the bad news and their bad news with you. Sometimes, it isn’t even another person who rains on your parade, have you noticed that? Sometimes that other person is you? Sometimes we bring ourselves down. That sucks, don’t you think?

Some people believe you can’t be happy all the time. Some people claim positive thinking doesn’t work. They imagine it all to be a big waste of time.  Some people get bent out of shape with the Law Of Attraction. They don’t believe it is a real law. They think all this is fluffy, unscientific,  mumbo jumbo. They are skeptical to say the least.

So let’s pretend for a moment.

Let’s pretend the Law Of Attraction is crap. It doesn’t work and it doesn’t exist. There is no such thing. Let’s further pretend there is no known reason for thinking positive. Positive thinking doesn’t work. Okay, can you consider that for a second? Good.

Let me ask you this: when you feel on top of the world and everything is going fantastic WHAT ARE YOU thinking?

What Are You Thinking 

If you have to, take your time and relive an experience. Do whatever you need to do to track back and find out the answer. Explore and examine for a few moments. Then, let me ask you this. When you are on top of the world, feeling incredible and everything is going well…

Are you thinking negative, weak, crappy thoughts? Are you filled with fear, doubt, worry and anxiety? Are you depressed, frustrated or angry? Are you feeling hatred towards others in that moment or envy or jealousy?

What exactly do you think and feel when things are going great?

Okay? Any answers?

I can bet the thoughts and feelings that you have going on then are a whole lot different from the kind I just mentioned. Would I be correct in making that assumption with you?

What Are You Saying To Yourself

You probably are thinking things like, ‘Wow, this is incredible!’ or “I feel fantastic!’ or you are so caught up in feeling great you aren’t even aware of what you are thinking. BUT you are thinking! My guess is you feel lighter and brighter! I bet things appear brighter too.

Or are you saying ‘ho hum, life is okay’.

My guess is your thoughts are wildly optimistic and positive when you feel at your finest. When everything is working together for good and you are enjoying life your thoughts are in line with that.

I’ll bet that when you get a piece of good news you think something along the lines of ‘oh boy!’ and not ‘oh no’. Isn’t that right?

For as long as you are on top of the world I’ll bet you are thinking great thoughts!

Yes, you might eventually think things like ‘hope nothing ruins this’, or ‘something is bound to screw this up’. Some less than glorious thoughts might begin to intrude.

Tell me, do you feel as great thinking those thoughts? What happens to your feelings of happiness and confidence when less than glorious thoughts begin to intrude? When one does, what happens? Do you dismiss it and go on feeling incredible or do you find another similar thought and begin to feel less than glorious too?

If you begin to worry that your joy will disappear what thoughts do you think are driving that? Could you list them? You may be able to or not. The point is you feel great and you think certain thoughts.

When you think other thoughts you feel a different way. You are aware of this, are you not?

Okay onto Law Of Attraction.

The Law Of Attraction – Like Attracts Like

Let’s pretend it doesn’t work. No matter what you do or think you don’t attract better thoughts. Although scientifically we know that we do attract other similar thoughts whether positive or negative. This we do know for certain.

You don’t attract people or events or circumstances. Let’s pretend that no matter what.  What will be will be. Que sera sera.

If as pointed out above; you felt better thinking positive thoughts doesn’t it THEN make sense to do it even if nothing change. Doesn’t it make sense to think positive if nothing changes at all for the better but your own feelings? Well? Doesn’t it make sense?

If you feel better, more positive, more optimistic, more joyful, more capable, more confident isn’t that better than any other alternative? Isn’t it? Some will say ‘but you have to be realistic’. I say, ‘who says’. According to whom? Why should I feel down just to be someone, whomever that is, claims one should be realistic?

It All Comes Down To What You Choose

AND…  How is feeling good not realistic? We have odd beliefs that we live from if we think we should feel bad just because that is the ‘right’ thing to do. I say feel your finest whenever you can.

Celebrate everything. Be thankful, be joyful, be inspiring to others. Let your light shine and enjoy the radiance. For no reason at all! You aren’t trying to get anything. You are just living your life to the fullest.

Do you imagine that by feeling filled with boundless joy and energy, confidence and delight that you might be able to do things you never did before? I certainly think so. Don’t you?

Don’t you think if your life is spent living at the top of your world that you might be able to focus and make happen anything you want? Because you feel great and you believe in yourself you are more apt to make things happen. You feel confident, competent and capable so you pursue your dreams and passions.

When everything all works together it all works! Isn’t that worth thinking the best you can? So what if it is all crap and not true? What does any of that have to do with you and your life? Live to the utmost. Enjoy each second. Enjoy the life you wish you had!

Live Fully And Make The Most Of Every Situation

Make the most of every situation. Go beyond any limitation and create the you, the career, the lifestyle you want to have. Feel good most of the time just because it feels better than feeling down and out. Actually, isn’t that what it is all about, feeling wonderful?

There are people with absolutely nothing who may be happier and mentally healthier than you and I. What does that tell us? It isn’t what we have that makes the difference. Unless of course you believe that. Possessions aren’t the most important, are they?

It is you! Your attitude and your willingness to become fully alive and celebrate life that makes the critical difference. Be happy. Because after all is said and done: Happiness is a choice! Make the wisest choice and chose the very best for yourself!” Rex Sikes

Live with passion and delight fully today!
