You can’t have all you want if you’re focused on all you’re not. Believe in yourself, energy flows where attention goes. Make it a great day today, make it a great day everyday. This is some of the writings I have been putting on my Facebook Status on a daily basis and it seems to be resonating with a lot of people so I bring you the story and hope it resonates with you.
First off congratulations to all my friends and followers all over the world who were accepted into the greatest race in the world, the ING New York City Marathon. I will see you in November in New York. Stay focused and I will be writing more in detail to help you prepare for the race as well as other fall marathons around the corner.
On a daily basis most people will wake up in the morning and almost in an instant their focus begins on their worries or problems that stress them out or areas of their life where they lack. Energy flows where attention goes and your energy already starts in a non productive day. Whether you understand it or not, your reality is shaped by your point of view on life. Because this is so, if you wake up in this manner your reality will continue past the morning and carry on throughout the day with this energy and you will manifest bad energy all day thus creating those days when “everything goes wrong”, ever had one of those days? An example of this is if you wake up every morning and the first things you think about are how broke, overweight and slow of a runner you are, guess what? Your day will be about how broke, overweight and how slow you are and you will continue to manifest that because that is where your energy is. The key is to shift your mindset and appreciate what you have and who you are. By focusing on this, you will make progress to your goals you have.
NOW IMAGINE waking up everyday with a feeling of gratitude in your heart for being alive and opening your eyes to a day filled with incredible possibilities to change your world and make decisions to have the life you choose to have? Imagine after laying in bed and feeling this way, going to brush your teeth or showering and thinking about how incredible your gifts really are? Your day is already taking shape and manifesting and attracting great energy as you head into your day of endless possibilities. When your mindset is strong like this you will start to create avenues and ideas to put yourself in positions to realize your gifts and utilize them to their largest capacities which will begin to hurdle obstacles you once thought were so significant such as being broke, or being overweight and running too slow.
ITS ABOUT HAVING THE APPRECIATION FOR THE SIMPLE THINGS THAT WILL LEAD YOU TO WHERE YOU DESIRE OR NEED TO GO. When you are solely focused on where you need to be or the things you don’t have without paying attention to the simple things in your life such as your gifts, you will suffer. You can’t get from A-Z with out B-Y. Sometimes the answers are right in front of us.
The key is to BELIEVE in yourself. Believe there is something that much more better than today. Even when you have the greatest day ever, believe it does get better than this. The belief that there is always a greater, grander day around the horizon will always attract even better energy for better days. Even when you have that day when nothing seems to go right, brush it to the side and know there is a better day tomorrow.
So what is the lesson for runners? BELIEVE! Put the work in and focus on your talents and gifts, not the goal time you can’t seem to reach in a race. By focusing on your talents it will enable you to grow your talents and everything will fall into place and you will reach your goals.
For life, its simple. Believe in yourself and that you are capable of anything. The key to life is finding the dream that is in your heart and fulfilling that dream to go after and become exactly what you want. Whether you are 18 or 25 or 35 or 50 or 60 years old, it is never too late to realize this and become what you have always wanted to be.
I truly believe children are our biggest teachers. They believe they are capable of anything. They are trusting and fearless and believe in their own power and believe they can get exactly what they want. You were a child once and that dream has never left your heart. Go out today and everyday and be trusting and be fearless and go get exactly what you want, but most of all…….BELIEVE.
