What does this really mean?
It is the realization, understanding, and belief that you are always growing in the most positive way.
Why is this so?
Whenever we find that we have dedicated our time, energy and focus on bettering ourselves from the inside-out (as opposed to trying to change things on the outside such as people, circumstances, experiences etc.) we should be confident that we are on the right path. After all, our reality is just a reflection of us on the inside.
How can I apply this information to get the results I want?
Well firstly, I must congratulate you…You are already on the road to positive change! Wherever you may be in your journey and whatever path you chose to take makes no difference here. The fact that you are taking the time and effort to read a blog that is dedicated to unlocking your true potential to create the life that you want should be your ultimate proof!
Secondly, I believe that there are so many paths you can take to better yourself and create your ideal world. It really depends on who you are as a person and what your desired result is. Once you’ve acknowledged that the power of change resides within you, the Universe will move mountains and align stars to help you find your path. And you will find it. I also believe however, and this part is very important, that choosing to live your life based on truth, honesty and integrity is the only way to achieve true and timeless success/ happiness.
You and only you will know what’s best for you. Once you’ve started the journey of unlocking the power of YOU, you should automatically know that you are changing in the most positive way. Once you affirm and begin to believe that you are “changing in the most positive way” – things will start happening! Doors will start opening, secrets of life begin unraveling, confusing times turn into AH-HA moments of clarity and the stepping stones of your journey will start mapping out in your mind.
My journey truly started after I hit rock bottom in my life. It was the lowest, most painful, most humiliating moment of my life – and yet, when I look back I realize it was my greatest blessing. After “hitting rock bottom”, I found a book (well actually to be more accurate, the book found me) at a time when I was truly ready to grow from the inside out. It was a time when I decided that enough is enough and that there was more to life than this! The book is called “The Power is Within Me” by Louise Hay, and I highly recommend it as a stepping stone to anyone who is ready to experience positive change.
Now when I look back years later, I realize that I am still on that path. In fact, we are on that path together. I am not better than you, or further than you (and vice versa), but I have advanced in ways I never even dreamt of, say six years ago.That for me is a great achievement and it encourages me to continue my journey – wherever it may take me. What I am trying to say here is that my only competition and comparison is myself, and that is how you should view your journey.
Before I close off, I would like to share these very powerful and beautiful words that resonated with me whilst reading the book, “Think and Grow Rich”, by Napoleon Hill. I believe that these words should be the foundation of everyone’s journey of growth. They are as follows:
“I fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure unless built upon truth and justice. Therefore, I will engage in no transaction that does not benefit all whom it affects. I will succeed by attracting to myself the forces I wish to use, and the cooperation of other people. I will induce others to serve me because of my willingness to serve others. I will eliminate HATRED, ENVY, JEALOUSY, SELFISHNESS and CYNICISM by developing LOVE for all humanity because I know a negative attitude towards others will never bring me success. I will cause others to believe in me, because I will believe in them, and in myself. I will sign my name to this formula…with full faith that it will gradually influence my thoughts and actions so that I will become a self-reliant and successful person.”
I am thankful and honored that you are joining me on this wonderful and exciting journey. Good luck!
PS – Feel free to share your story with me and any advice you may have on positive change. I would love to hear from you, after all – we are all changing, in the most positive way.
