Have you ever experienced a major disruption? I mean, a major event that you know is going to change your life forever. At that moment, you’re not sure if this disruptor will be the cause of some painful years ahead. But, it’s those moments, when you think of making a decision; and, without realizing it, revert to that moment when it all went wrong. And today, you make your decisions based on that painful experience.

Or maybe your experience was different. You knew your disruptor was going to change your life but differently. At that moment, you realize everything is going to be ok, and this was a lesson in life. This understanding allowed you to release a long breath, one of awareness, one that lets you know you are better, stronger, resilient. It is at that exact time; you know you are a survivor.

We are constantly becoming who we are meant to be.

As you have read both experiences, you found they are indeed similar. Yes, there was a major disruption. A life-altering experience. And yet the outcomes were very different. And by outcomes, I mean the mind shift that occurred. What is it that helps you move beyond your circumstances? What allows you to actually see the light at the end of the tunnel? What shifts had to be made to actually take the steps to live in the abundance you deserve?

It’s the power of your mind! Your attitudes, your self-preservation, your ability to look yourself in the mirror and say “I Am Enough!” To walk with confidence, poise, your authentic self.

It’s the Power of Positive thinking! In fact, the idea that your mind can change your world is almost too good to be true. Let me say this, I have experienced and witnessed the good that focusing on the positive can bring.

As a Neuro-Linguistic Programming Specialist, this philosophy sheds light on the fact that how we monitor our behavior is based on the way we relate to our past experiences, our relationships, and our beliefs to make decisions whether right or wrong. In order words, YOU have the control to create the future you want.
