Often I have sat and thought about how we can bring happiness into someones life. Obviously there is the power of prayer, offering help, giving a smile, sending a card, etc. However, if it is not helping them...how do we continue to be supportive and not end up giving up on the person? It is a frustration that I feel often when I feel that I have given all I can give and yet the person still chooses to go down the negative spiral of life.
Well in The Secret there is a quote that I am so glad I remember: We are each creating our lives through our thoughts and feelings, and so you cannot hold yourself responsible for someone else’s happiness. It is impossible for you to be responsible for anybody else, because you cannot jump inside someone else and think and feel for them. Focus on your joy, and be an inspiration to everyone around you.
I am so thankful that I read that. I feel that I am being a inspiration to everyone around me especially since people tell me that all the time lately. They can tell that The Secret is working for me. It has helped me break even at my store in only my 3rd month of business. It has enabled me to start losing weight. I am finding that all positive people are flowing into my life. My ideas are pouring out and enabling me to create some awesome things for my business and my life. My children are happier, I handle stressful situations better, and everything I want is coming to me without any effort. On the other side of this, I am noticing that the negative people are no longer around. I would love to be an inspiration to everyone..especially those negative people since they need it. However, I am learning that sometimes those people that are in a dark shadow of their lives cannot stand people who are positive. Is it jealousy, is it envy? Whatever the case it is once again negative. So, I am not going to complain because.......
In The Secret it states: If you are complaining, the law of attraction will powerfully bring into your life more situations for you to complain about. If you are listening to someone else complain and focusing on that, sympathizing with them, agreeing with them, in that moment, you are attracting more complaining situations to yourself!
Instead I am going to try this....
It also states:Most people feel powerless to help others, when in fact every single human being has a power within them that, when directed properly, will help beyond anything else. You can direct this power by focusing on people in difficult situations being in joy, by imagining them in joy right now. Hold to the outcome of joy for them. By doing this, you will cause the unfathomable Creative Power to move through you to bring them joy.
Maybe even in thought I can create positivity in these people's lives without them even knowing it. It will fill me up instead of feeling helpless and hopefully bring them into a lighter easier path. Because of The Secret I am happy that negative people do not fill my life since they are the reasons that positive people start to feel negative feelings. We need to stay as positive as possible to keep all good coming into our lives. When a negative thought pops into our head we need to immediately direct our thoughts to something positive. I know it works....because it has worked for me, my sister-in-law and a few of my friends. All I can do now is keep spreading the word in hopes that others can experience the life they want for themselves. If they chose to stay in their negative down hill spiral then I will pray for them in hopes that they come to me if they have hit rock bottom. And, I will keep thinking about them being in joy the entire time in hopes that only the best will come to them. Although people live by.... misery loves company and some love to stay in their current situation because it becomes comfortable and easier than changing....no matter what, I will still be here for them. I will still continue to try and be an inspiration. I feel it is the least I can do.
I am thankful for:
the warmer weather today
the wonderful positive people I have been meeting
my continued success
the power of prayer
