You want to know how I know you are not ready to be happy?
I know because if you really wanted to be happy, you would be.
You are not happy because you are not ready to let go of thinking about and feeling about, talking with others about.. all the things you feel unhappy about.
As a coach I hear from people all the time who say to me that they want to be happy, they want to be rich, they want to be well.
They don’t really want this.
They are not willing to change one drop of thinking or feeling so that things can change for them.
Any state of Being is the product of your thinking and feeling that way.. acting that way.
How can you Be happy when all your conversation is about things that make you feel unhappy?
Thoughts always become things when given your attention with great passion.
The other day I asked a coaching client what she really wanted. She responded that it was more about what she didn’t want.
Ok, I said, then tell me what you don’t want.
She didn’t want to be broke, she didn’t want to experience bounced checks, etc.
I had her write down the top five things she didn’t want and then flip them to what it was that she really wanted.
Ah, she exclaimed.. finally understanding that by putting all her energy into what she didn’t want.. she just kept getting more of that.
Being happy does not require everything in your life to be just as you want to experience it. That’s putting the cart before the horse.
The law of attraction, the secret to experiencing is imagination combined with passion.. followed by inspired action.
Can you feel happy right where you are?
Of course you can. Think about things that feel good to you. Continue to work with this energy even if you have to think about things that have already happened.
You might even enjoy playing the “wouldn’t it be nice game”. Just say, wouldn’t it be nice if all my bills were paid with money left over to go out and eat?
Continue in that vein of thought and watch your mood change.
Being Happy is a state of mind.. which creates circumstances to match the mood.
I’ve written a powerful ebook that teaches you how to change your thinking and your feelings. Discover the secret to Being Happy.. to Being whatever state you wish to experience.
