After 12 years of personal development and self inquiry, something Nigel and many other teachers have been saying the entire time, has finally made sense. It’s all about focus – focusing on what you want, not what you don’t want!
It’s soooooo easy to get stuck in a story of our suffering, of how life isn’t how we want it to be and to re-affirm our limitations…
“I’m not slim enough”, “I’m not fit enough”, “I’m not smart enough” and so on. The reality is that focusing on the limitations will not help us get the results we really want or the life we know deep down we are being pulled towards.
So next time (and every time) you notice the ‘negativity committee’ having a meeting in your mind; kick them out and start focusing on what you actually want, the health you want, the relationships you want, the career, the balance, the interests and hobbies… Focus on what you do want and then take action. It might be as simple as going for a walk because that’s the you of your future would do or drinking some water or going and trying that thing you’ve always wanted to do!!
So the question is, what will your future hold?
