How can you change your reality?
The reality you construct for yourself, is the reality you live in.
If you create a reality full of limitations, you will find yourself surrounded by limitations.
If you focus on problems, you will not find solutions.
And if your viewpoint is founded in negativity, you cannot see the positive.
You cannot see the light, for the darkness.
You have the power to alter your perception of the world around you and how you interact with it; how it interacts with you.
So how can you change your reality?
This can happen slowly, gradually or sometimes all at once. But usually real change is gradual.
You can become aware of how you are impacting your own reality. Take notice of your thoughts, things you say to yourself and others. Notice your feelings. Notice what you spend your time doing. It is enough to notice at first. You don’t have to overwhelm yourself by trying to change all at once. It is ok to be where you are…
If it helps you, you can write down the things you notice. Then decide what you want to change.
Catch yourself when you start making excuses. Look towards solutions. Always look towards solutions. Look towards what's possible. Don't worry about what seems impossible.
Instead of focusing on a problem, and keeping it alive, notice what’s different. Notice what can be different. Notice what you wish was different. Focus on that instead. And on how you can make that your new reality.
Visualize, dream, imagine what can be and go for it!
