If you want to change the world you really have to get more people to accept that it is possible and that it may be a good thing to do. Next you have to help offer some ideas about how to do it because it is not necessarily an obvious. It does not really matter what you have going on in your life whether CEO or church volunteer you have invented a story – a character that you are playing in this “all the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players” world we live in.
So what are you doing? Why are you here? Do you have some big purpose or do you spend your life just doing what “the world” has given you the impression you are supposed to do? To me the most important question is, are you having a lot of fun?
If you are then great. The character and story-line you have come up with is working out fine for you. On the other hand if your days are filled with a lot of stress and anxiety and worries about things not working out the way you want, you should really consider coming up with a new story-line for yourself. Re-invent yourself. Take a little time to and disconnect from your “real” world and take account of all the positives -the things that do make you happy in your current story. Savor those because they are elements you will want to keep.
Now, find a nice quiet place where you won’t be disturbed for 15-20 minutes, sit down, close your eyes. Just to relax a bit focus your attention on your breathing and take a few slow deep breaths. Now, think about, imagine a new and improved story of your future that brings a smile to your face. How would you act differently? How would other people in your story react to you? What kinds of things would you have fun doing?
It does not matter how great or poorly things are going for you at the moment, this exercise will prove beneficial. Most people probably don’t accept that you can just decide to change your story-line. They believe they were dealt a hand of cards and just have to play the game the best they can. This is not true. It is all up to you – everything in your life is up to you. This is why we are certain you will find this exercise useful because if you take the time to do it often, you will demonstrate to yourself that you can believe your way right into a whole new story-line.
We have a couple of short podcasts at www.DesignerOfReality.com that will elaborate on these ideas.
