My coach asked me recently, “Are you stuck in struggle”?
My first response was NO. Then, I began to think about his question. It’s a really great question!
We have all been exposed to messages about the power of positive thinking. With the media attention that “The Secret” is getting, we are now practically bombarded with wisdom about the Law of Attraction, and related material. As I’ve stated in an earlier blog, I have always lived my life with a positive attitude, and have subscribed to the idea that we create our own reality. “The Secret” did not enlighten me; it served as validation.
The fact is, we do create our own reality, based upon our reaction to our surroundings. We make choices about our life, which leads us down a path filled with more challenges and more decisions. We can choose to be happy. We can choose to be unhappy. We can choose to surround ourselves with others who think like we do. We can choose to be a victim. We can choose to rise above the drama of being stuck in struggle.
What is the struggle in which we are stuck? If our days went by without challenges, we would live a boring life and would not experience growth. So we meet our challenges in various ways, depending on our mindset and our disposition. Is this a choice? Of course it is.
We can choose to be stuck in struggle, or we can choose to make changes in our life that make us happier. We can work directly through the struggle, or we can sit inside it and wallow in our own grief. The Law of Attraction states that we attract what we think about. If we’re wallowing, guess what we’ll get more of?
I think it’s healthy to be aware that we might be stuck. If we’re mindful of the possibility, and we don’t like the concept, we’re much more likely to dig ourselves out of it. Imagine how it would feel if we were swimming in molasses; and then imagine the freedom of swimming in water instead. How liberating to be moving freely!
