I believe everyone can live an engaged and fulfilling life.
The starting place is having a positive mindset that embraces all possibilities. To adopt a positive mindset is to conjure the reality you desire before it happens.
Artist and author Michael Mckee puts it this way. He says, “It takes courage to embrace the possibilities of your own potential, and once you’ve flown past the summit of your fears, nothing will seem impossible.”
Motivational guru Les Brown beautifully captured a similar sentiment that Mindset Is Everything in the following. He says: “Tap into your power and expand your imagination for what’s possible. Commit to creating a life that demonstrates your gifts, your passion, and your greatness.”
Staying present and optimistic about the opportunities around us is the birthplace for all happiness and success. If you are tired of watching everyone else get what they want, then it is time to experience a paradigm shift. This mental realignment also necessitates putting in the effort to realize your dreams and goals.
You cannot have one without the other. A change in behavior must accompany a shift in mindset. Having a desire (mindset) and willingness to commit to pursuing your dream (action) are the two prerequisites behind every success story.
The third and perhaps most crucial ingredient in adopting a mindset that welcomes all possibilities is a spirit of gratitude. Be grateful for what life has given you. Take time to celebrate your journey. Of course, this is not to say you won’t ever react to unexpected life events. But having an attitude of gratitude makes it more likely that you will remain composed and adapt to life’s circumstances.
Embrace all things, the good and the bad. Be grateful for the growth you have experienced up to this point in your life.
You will be amazed at the doors of opportunity that will open once you begin practicing gratitude.
