I Love It When This Happens – Let Nothing Stop You!

horizons light house

“Synchronicity. Is there such a thing? Perhaps, that is a term used by those whose think all events aren’t somehow related. It would seem inside a closed universe that everything is connected. We just may not yet, be able to see how. So, sometimes, we get a glimpse or a treat.

Even if one maintains it is all chaos that is essentially saying the same thing in a sort of dyslexic, reverse, fashion. If everything is unordered there is order in that. I jest, in some ways, posing paradox like, can god make a rock so big god can’t lift it?

Two  posts ago, the other morning, I posted about people who kept going and had great attitude and lives in spite of losing body parts or the ability to move. Some people have an attitude of ‘life is good’ regardless of what happens. There is so much beauty in this.

Coincidence Or Connection

I was going past a book shelf looking for something and inadvertently knocked a book out. It fell open on the floor. Of course, it would be Canfield and Hansen’s, ‘Chicken Soup For The Soul’. It fell open on the floor. Picking it up and turning it over at the place it had opened, the chapter title was ‘Yes, You Can’.

After the subheading quote by Aldous Huxley, ‘Experience is not what happens to a man. It is what a man does with what happens to him’ : the first paragraph begins this way:

‘What if at 46 you burned beyond recognition in a terrible motorcycle accident, and then four years later, paralyzed from the waste down in an airplane crash?’ Coincidence? I think not.

What Would You Do?

A horrific question to consider for certain. I had just published my blog about how people see it through tough times. The paragraph continues:

‘Then, can you imagine yourself becoming a millionaire, a respected public speaker, a happy newlywed, and a successful business person? Can you see yourself going white water rafting? Sky diving? Running for political office?’ Then, ‘W Mitchell has done all these things and more…’

WOW, right! W. Mitchell is another example of someone who does not let what happened to him put him down and out or define him. Rather than letting circumstances define him he defines the circumstances! His story, is a powerful testament to the power of attitude and human will.

I think Canfield and Hansen too, put a little magic into the chapter they wrote when they asked ‘Can you imagine yourself becoming…’ because that is truly what it takes. The power of our imagination. If you can imagine it you can become it. You become what you think about.

What You Think About You Bring About

Napoleon Hill stated, much earlier, ‘If you can conceive it and believe it, you can achieve it’. Those who do this have the power and ability to move forward no matter what. In the face of the most difficult circumstances they determine how things will be. They do not let the circumstances define them.

Those of us, some of whom may have suffered tremendous hardship, can use examples like W. Mitchell to inspire and motivate us. Others of us, who have had it comparatively easier by far, should stop with the excuses.

The message is clear. We can do anything we put our mind and heart into. We can go beyond anything we thought was possible and soar to greater heights. If we can dream it we can do it.

We can stop letting the world tell us who we are, what we can do and what we can have and we can start telling the world how it will be instead! We can live as victors and champions. We can win and live as winners. We decide! You and I determine, we chose, how we will live.

UNLESS, You Let Someone Else Dictate That

Who is in charge? Are you or are you going to let the world; the government; the economy; the difficulties; get the better of you? OR do you decide to get the better of them and make you and your life what you want it to be? Who is in charge of your life?

If people like W. Mitchell can triumph in spite of terrific loss, that would stop most people dead in their tracks, we should be able to do at least as much. If it is possible for one human it is possible for all humans. NEVER let a thought stop you from the positive good that can be yours!

See it in your mind! Claim it! Make it yours! Own it and transform your life. There are no accidents. There are only incidents that we can’t yet see how they are connected or what their purpose is. We can however, trust that ultimate good can come no matter what!

What You See Is What You Get

Celebrate and live life fully! Choose to make it wonderful! Is the universe orderly? It is if you say it is! You determine how you go through life and whether or not it is a wonderful and friendly world.

Our beliefs determine what we see and what we find. So if you have to think and believe anything about yourself and the world; you might as well believe the very best! As for me, I’m glad that book fell open.” Rex SIkes

Make your day wonderful!
