Don't do the same things you've always done if you want different results!
On one level this seems quite obvious, duh! But, we somehow convince ourselves otherwise. Here are
just a few examples, not pointing fingers as I've done all of these at one time or another.
- If you are still giving your work your all and coming home with nothing left for your spouse, don't expect that relationship
to suddenly flourish.
- If you want a love relationship but
aren't making time to meet and interact with prospective people, don't expect Mr. Right to just show up at your door.
- If you haven't sat down and really looked at where you money is going, don't expect
your debt to decrease.
- If you haven't scheduled 'me' time
into your calendar, don't expect extra time just to 'show up' when you need it.
I think you get my drift. If something you deeply want hasn't shown up in your life yet, maybe you need to do something
differently? Humm, so what is it you're supposed to change?
Sometimes it's our mindset that needs to change. We either don't believe that what we want
is possible for us. Or, we find ways to limit the good that does come our way (these are called limiting beliefs). Until we
truly believe that what we want is possible for us, it probably won't show up in our lives.
Sometimes we need to take a different action! Perhaps
your words and your actions are not aligned. When what you do is not the same as what you say you want (the two are in opposition
of each other) humm, how is the Universe supposed to know which to bring you? Remember, taking no action is just as contradictory
to your words.
So, the moral of the story
is - (I'll just restate the title in other words) if you're not experiencing the life you want, don't keep doing what
you've always done. If you want to create something new, do something new!
I'd love to hear about your experiences with this. What change
did you make that then brought you the results you'd been looking for?
