Many of us miss out time and time again on an
opportunity to transform our lives, to live the kind of life we can only dream
of. Why? It happens every time and it happens to most of us. Yet the answers
seem uncommon and we rarely talk about it. It’s just complicated, or is it?
Sometimes the smallest easiest step is the
hardest. And a single simple truth bears heaviest and deepest in our core. We
are afraid to step up to the plate. But what’s stopping us really?
Mediocrity? The True Enemy of Change Today
These days are different. We have access to vast
knowledge and information. So if you want to venture into a new business, visit
a foreign country, or even go visit a remote scenic spot – you will find
information about it. Thanks to the internet and thanks to people, who are like
you, have access to this information and can now easily share what they know.
Sometimes, you don’t even have to try things for
yourself. Saves you a lot of time going to that newly opened restaurant,
because you’ve already read a review. Or on the opposite, gave you the best
culinary experience of your life because someone recommended the best dish to
try, the best place to stay, the most helpful advice they ever got, the most
efficient ways, and all the how to’s. You name it. This also gives us the
audacity to try something new.
But why not go for IT? Go for that BIG change. What’s
really stopping you?
The real enemy of transformation remains hidden.
Yet it’s so simple.
But first we must identify what it is not, before
understanding what it is. It’s the face of the real archenemy of our modern
times that prevents us to take the first step to take control of our lives.
The enemy is NOT the
difficulty of the task.
No matter how easy and uncomplicated the first
step, the things we have to do, some people are afraid to dive in and so simply
dismiss the chance of a lifetime.
Surprisingly, most of these people who miss out
are not the ones who are afraid to struggle. Most have gone through challenges,
frustrations and difficulties. And they knew there’s a life better than the
life they are trying to get by. They knew that beyond that office cubicle and
paper works, that sought-after promotion, and that usual retirement plan –
there’s a childhood dream inside their closet at home that’s collecting dust.
And that very thing means the world to them.
It’s always difficult in the beginning, that’s
true. But most times, the difficulty is not the process or what needs to be done.
As in most of the life-changing lessons you will find in the website which
starts with easy steps.
The real difficulty that people of today face is trusting and
believing that it CAN be done.
We’d like to assume that these challenging times
have taught us to be a realistic generation. The more we age, the more we
perfectly know how to tell fact vs fiction, adulthood vs childishness, and
reality vs dreams. If you find these things easily as two opposing sides of the spectrum, I’d have to agree except for one.
It is NOT the lack of the Logical that
stops us from living the life of our dreams but the lack of Magic.
Reality Vs. Magic
It’s popular knowledge, isn’t it. Reality and
dreams are two different things. Society tells us to know the difference. Or
else we’ll get that hard jolt of reality to wake us up from dreaming. So, we
get no sleep, we stay up late because we hang on to this reality, where sadly
some still find themselves unhappy.
Look around you. This is reality, correct? It’s
what you can perceive and everybody else can see. We were told to stay
objective and logical to thrive into this modern world. We got no time for
menial things. We think big, we stay objective. And in this way, often we lose
the balance and lose the magic. So, we look at little children and feel
bitter-sweet. We say, “If I hadn’t known what I knew now, I’d be naively
happiest just like them.”
Reality is easy to acknowledge and believe because others see it too. We mainly confer to society, what other people will say. We often use
this generic lens to confirm reality. Reality that has its own limits, limited
to common eyesight. Limited to what others can perceive.
There are things yet to be seen and there are things that can only be
seen from the inside. There are truths inside us that are
sometimes too afraid to surface, too limited by doubts, fear of rejection and
the lack of confirmation from others. But what if we look at this world through
a different lens, that one of our own.
With our innermost sight, we would find that there’s an infinity of
truths hidden beyond the covers of our doubts. That
there’s vastness beyond the limits of what we perceive as reality.
We are source. We would find that in REALITY, we are
limitless beyond what we think we already know now.
The key to unlock our inner sight is AWARENESS.
If we see our lives this way, we can look at our
reality differently, as not the complete opposite but one that bears
similarities to the magic in us. Where in both, everything is possible, where
more is yet to be known and yet we trust the beauty of the unknown. We develop
greater sense and trust in the universe and open up to greater things.
Reality and Dreams work their own dynamics in our
lives and both are vital to the equilibrium. This way they are not opposing
forces but two complementing forces that work together to bare the entirety of
The first step is not always easy, because
learning to live is also learning from this world the uttermost things that
limit us from being aware of the things we do not know yet. This is our
limiting beliefs, ideologies, the ego that tips us out of a balanced life. If
we are to experience life to the fullest, we must regain this balance and
believe in both forces that makes us who we truly are.
We are Real and we are Magic.
Believing is the first step.
It’s the time when you jump in to the chance of
making that big shift in your life. We are from a challenged but thriving
generation and challenges are part of our daily lives. Our real enemies are
those lurking in the shadows of our psyche and our subconscious: doubts, fears,
self-sabotaging habits and limiting beliefs.
We must acknowledge them by being aware they
exist and tend to them as we grow towards higher awareness and manifesting our
dreams (magic) in one with our reality.
BUT FIRST, we must believe and trust the process.
The unknown will be known, secrets revealed, all truths will come out and we
should learn to appreciate the beauty of it.
Just make that first step and the Truth, yours
and the Universe, shall guide you.
Awaken your AWARENESS, trust the beauty of the process, begin easy
steps as you grow a strong foundation. And believe it can be done.
To your beautiful life transformation this year,
we cheer you on because we believe.
