What is the greatest motivator you can imagine? The joy of making your life more than it is now. This has nothing to do with being discontented or even unhappy. It is actually the other way around. It is the knowing that each step we take in life leads us to another platform. From there we see new things which trigger something wich was lying dormant within us waiting for the moment when we are ready to wake it up.
This is what I would also call zest for life. The joy of living. The joy of discovering life. Taking life as it comes towards us, looking at it, accepting it, and making something of it that moves me forward. But does that mean that it is all just a smooth flow on a calm river? For sure not!
Dr. Wayne Dyer
Each of those last steps to get onto that new platform also holds some fear. I have never been there before and I don’t know how it is until I get there. Most of all for someone who always tries to be in control of her life this can be scary and confusing. But it is not wrong, it is only new. Once experienced the liberation of going past the fear stretches the mind. It teaches it that there is a power that is wiser than itself. A power and wisdom that exists far longer than the mind which can only talk from the experience of its own lifetime. It has no idea what the soul is destined to experience and that being aligned with the power of the soul opens up endless possibilities. So simply shut up that inner dialogue!
Dr. Wayne Dyer
I think the happiest people are those who experience what they are able to do. Those who grew out of themselves and realize that they are able to achieve everything they feel as a truth within them. The mind is important to get us through the physical world with its physical laws. But if we let the mind be in control for what the soul wants, we are limited in our desired development which causes frustration and even depression.
As I said, a feeling of fear or confusion may be with us whenever we go for something new. But that fear is only a mindset resulting from too little information. Knowing this and (even more important) knowing that it is our purpose to expand the spiritual beings we are into this physical world we will accept that fear may be a sporadic companion but not an equal partner! That way we make ourselves and our creative powers visible in order to learn and to develop from experience.
To live life means filling your life with meaning. And you can only give your life meaning when you let your Self fill yourself! Once you went past your fear – not because you were forced to but because you decided to – and you see that what waits on the other side is the place you are actually meant to operate then you gave your mind that important “stretch experience”.
Many people have overcome so much. They made it through all thunderstorms. Still, they don’t see how far they have come. Mostly the reason is that they did not realize that they made it and only felt like the fighting victims instead of the powerful fighters. They will be lamenting all life for how many struggles they had to face but not how many times they overcame them. That’s why it is so important that seeing fear and going beyond it consciously. Then each new challenge will be seen as another option to grow into a bigger, better, and more powerful person than before.
You can make a change. It may be hard in the beginning. Like it is with all new things we learn. But once you see what you yourself are able to achieve and that you can only achieve it when you take action you won’t ever go back anymore. No stomach pain can ever keep you from following the voice of your heart anymore!
Your life is yours! Make it yours!
