Keeping a positive outlook through the good and the bad

During these difficult economic times, how are you maintaining a positive attitude?

Is it the smile on your child's face you search for every morning? Is it the wagging tail of your furry friend? Or do you crawl back into bed and hope that it all goes away? Life doesn't always hand us the perfect recipe for success, but that's because it's based on a "trial and error" formula. "You can't always get what you want " sings rocker, Mick Jagger, but you do get what you need - and out of necessity is where you find the greatest treasure troves.

The best strategy is to not contemplate what went wrong and what may or may not happen tomorrow in your life. That's behind you. There is a perfect explanation to why you are positioned in the place you are right now. It's not necessarily due to "bad karma" either - so what if you pulled Jenny's hair in the second grade? That was then, this is now. We've all done things as children (and even as adults) that we're not particularly proud of, but that doesn't make us ghastly human beings; careless with behavior maybe, but not severe enough to warrant evil kickbacks. Now here's the ticker - the Universal flow of energy is trying to restore your balance by challenging you to take notice of opportunities that surround you. In a lot of cases, you may view these opportunities as "trials," "roadblocks," or simple instances of ill fate - but in the grand illusion of the reality, which is the life that we lead, there are no wrongs or rights, only lessons. Each lesson presents itself with the prospect to engage; and to encourage growth into the greatness that you are destined to become. Are you ready to accept that responsibility?

In lieu of the present economic circumstances, I want you to focus not so much on what might happen to you tomorrow, but what you can do for yourself today so you can evolve with the trend and make use of the potential that is there for you. If you've experienced some form of loss in your life, you need to realize that this loss may have occurred to create space for what you need to survive and thrive. Remember earlier when I told you that you don't always get what you want but you get what you need? That's how the Universal flow of energy works. It brings all the vital ingredients together to make your life easier, happier, and more fulfilling. Things may not appear that way right now, but the treasure that awaits you can only be seen when you awaken your intuition and gift of vision to see beyond life's challenges.

In each and every one of us, there is a soul blueprint that maps out our lives and our soul purpose. When we tap into our intuitive powers, we are able to truly see the road to success affront of us. It is extremely vital that you gain clarity in whatever it is you want to achieve in your life so you can accomplish it. Once you stop consuming yourself with the goings on of the world around you, you can function at your maximum potential. That, my friends, is the key to any success strategy. Throw away all the garbage thoughts in your mind. Negativity is the pitfall to ruin, so let's not go there.

Next, concentrate on what is important in your life - i.e., your friendships, your loved ones, your career, your home. How can you improve your circumstances? Does sulking about what you don't have help you achieve anything? You don't have to answer that question because you already know the answer. Use your intuitive powers to reveal the silver lining in your prevailing circumstances. What have you not yet seen? Was it there before, or has it been there all along? You see, the treasures that we seek are usually strewn amidst the clutter of our thinking brains. We think, think, think, and think. What it boils down to is how you direct your thinking and your goals. When you have stabilized your mindset and have harmonically aligned your heart and mind with the Universal flow of energy, you are opening the path to enlightenment. This is the vision you have been waiting for it is the way and light to see things more clearly, to understand fully how to go about overcoming your challenges and how to turn challenges into opportunity for you. Remember too, "You can't always get what you want " sings rocker, Mick Jagger, but you do get what you need - and out of necessity is where you find the greatest treasure troves. Make today your day to discover your treasure trove. Think positively, believe faithfully in yourself, and harness the power of the Universal flow of energy to create the lifestyle you want to lead. It's up to you.
