Monday Motivation: Be Open to Opportunity
The past week has brought my attention back to the idea of openness and what it creates for us in life, in love, and in our careers. I’ve had the chance to meet a lot of new people in recent months in both my personal life with new friends and my professional life as a nutrition coach and teacher. With those new people have come new challenges, and with new challenges come new opportunities. Rather than closing myself off to things because I fear that I won’t be able to handle them or I won’t have enough time to tackle all of the tasks that may follow, I decided to change my mind and to remain OPEN to the opportunities.
Perception is everything.
I’m a firm believer in the idea that your perception of a situation changes everything, and in turn, changes what may further enter into your life. By creating a simple shift in my perspective on what has been in my life, and remaining focused on that for which I am grateful rather than focusing on what was not happening for me, I released my mind and moved forward to allow what would happen to be as it would be. Within 24 hours the momentum and direction of everything I had been thinking about made positive shifts. “When you [are thankful] in advance for that which you choose to experience in your reality, you, in effect, acknowledge that it is there, in effect. Thankfulness is thus the most powerful statement.” – Neale Donald Walsh.
Be open or new things cannot enter into your life.
The idea of remaining open is true for new people as well as for new opportunities. If you are looking for a new relationship, having a positive mental attitude and an outlook that shows others that you are open and available will leave others no choice but to be drawn to that energy. If you are looking for new business opportunities, similarly, maintaining an open, positive and curious mind will allow such things to come your way.
The universe knows what you want and it will only give you what you feel in your heart that you deserve.
Some call this The Law of Attraction, some call it “the power of positive thinking.” Whatever you want to call it, make it happen for yourself, from the inside, from a place of honesty, truth and love within and you’ll reap the rewards many times over.
