In the last blog I discussed how many of us think that when what bothers us goes away, we can be happy. That was in response to the question, “What is the biggest challenge that we all have?” As we know something else will always come up that concerns us; perhaps even more significant than what is currently bothering us.
Another big challenge that we all face is that what we say and do is limited by our limiting beliefs. Because these beliefs limit what we think is possible, we play it small. We stay in our comfort zones, make unhealthy career and relationship choices and are afraid to rock the boat. You notice that I say “choice.” I know that the origin of many of our limiting beliefs is unconscious. To change some of these beliefs we need to make a choice. That’s what Dancing on the River is all about. It’s a consciousness that is a reflection of a life decision to be happy in the moment that you make over and over again. Yes, we can choose to be happy. We can choose to focus on what’s good in our life, rather than on what isn’t working and what is wrong.
Challenge these limiting beliefs. Beliefs are just beliefs, they are not fact. It’s not the circumstances or facts of your life, but the attitude that you have toward them. Focus on the good, on what’s working.
