“The frontier between hell and heaven is only the difference between two ways of looking at things.”
~~George Bernard Shaw (1856 – 1950)
It’s as Simple as Pretending
Pretending you’ve already got what you want is a trick you can play on your brain.
It may sound ridiculous but once you know how the brain works it makes sense.
Keep this up and it becomes true.
It helps to slowly and repeatedly say affirmations such as, ‘I now have (….insert what you want….)’.
See each word separately in your mind.
Write out the sentences a few times and place them around your home and workstation.
Even if you disagree or doubt it the first few times, these words fire neurons in your brain, your brain believes them and they build your confidence.
A glimmer of hope develops in you. Do it and you’ll see.
As you repeat these and the neurons in your brain continue to fire the words, a new world of opportunity starts to open up and your confidence gains momentum.
It starts to be real.
Opportunities appear in your life as if from nowhere and you feel different.
Note: This article is also a good follow on from Part 3 – Finding Times Tough? 2 Easy and Effective Steps to Start Your Happy Life.
If You Want to, Allow the Feelings of Despair – But Only For a While
If you feel desperate, allow those feelings and be conscious you’re allowing them.
This is to allow yourself to have this experience.
Then stand up straight with your shoulders back and decide that’s enough. Wallowing in despair is easy and comfortable in contrast to being strong.
Being strong isn’t easy but it will take you to the other side of tough times and a happy life. Being strong aligns you with a path that opens up new opportunities… so be ready for them.
New opportunities can’t appear if you are wallowing in self-pity. You’ll never see the opportunity from down there.
Knowledge helps you become strong, it gives you security. Keep up with your learning about how life works.
When Your Opportunities Arrive Acknowledge Them
You’ll notice miracles start to happen if you stay determined and stick with the “pretense” of already having what you want. You may not be able to fathom how they happen – but be alert for them. Acknowledge and celebrate them. Let them fill you with the confidence that you can do this.
Be strong and allow yourself to open to new opportunities. Keep up the pretense of already being the person you want to be and use affirmations to do it. Affirmations are easy and a very powerful way to keep you buoyant. Affirmations and why they’re powerful are taught in “Just Like That!”
