It amazes me time and time again how life insists on throwing curve ball after curve ball at us. Life is truly a series of lessons. It is up to us if we decided to learn the lesson or take the class over. We can be internally regulated. What I mean by that is your Spirit can truly be the leader and decision-maker in your life. It is what will keep you steady when you fall down, or fail, or something doesn't go your way, or someone breaks your heart. Our minds our full of excuses and reasons to blame the world, others, circumstances or God when we find ourselves faced with a challenge. It takes discipline and commitment to ourselves to hold our ground and stay true to ourselves, our morals and standards. We are the ones who decide how to respond to this or that. Not the other way around.
I am not saying that it is easy. In fact there are some extraordinary cases where we are forced to bend to the forces outside of ourselves. If your employer decides to lay you off there is little you can do except move on. If your partner decides to leave for someone else without looking back at you, you have to find the strength to ride the storm and get through the pain without losing yourself. If we let our Minds choose how we act or react, 9 out of 10 times it will be the wrong way to go. We will only find ourselves in a worse state. Our Spirits though are our higher state of being. Spirits are made of pure love and love conquers all things no matter what the outcome.
The SELF, Inc. Life Program handbook explains how you can live your life with your Spirit leading your Mind as your Body follows. It offers a self-help life management program that is easy-to-apply. The Program itself is dedicated to personal growth and success in all areas of your life. Again, no one said it was going to be easy, but we have a choice when we fall. We can either draw from the power within our own Spirit and stand up for our right to love and live... or be a victim.
As a fellow human being I am committed to sharing whatever insight I gain from my own travel throughout my life, in hopes of giving others inspiration to never quit - even when it seems like everyone and everything has quit on you. Always ask yourself with every challenge you face: "What is the lesson I can learn from this?"
