“As my circumstances look at me, I do not let them define me” – Syl
Day by day as we go through our daily life, in some way we are changing the circumstances around us. It may not be noticeable, but our actions and energy shape and reshape our circumstances constantly. If I want to change something in my life, I begin to take actions that will bring about that change. The more energy I put behind my actions the more I begin to pull in the elements that will bring about the change I am seeking.
If I focus solely alone my circumstances, depending on the situation, It can be either encouraging or discouraging, but we shouldn’t focus on the circumstances alone. We cannot ignore what is around us. We can use it to motivate us. Let’s say you want a new job. You activate the elements of change by doing a job search and not only that but also by actively pursuing leads. When we activate the elements of change and participate in bringing about change ( not just standing still and doing a lot of wishful thinking) we begin to draw in options and openings towards us. From a spiritual standpoint, If I pray for a new job and believe that I will receive a new job, then God will begin to work towards preparing me, creating the new job and bringing us both together. It is a matter of believing, not what circumstances lead us to believe. As I stated, our daily actions are reshaping our circumstances.
Excuses add up to a stack of regrets and it gets to the point where you are closed in by them and you can barely see daylight. Have you ever wanted to something so strongly that you were wiling to move heaven and earth to get it? Think about why you wanted it and what was driving you to do it. This is how we should approach every situation, with that same passion, driving force and belief we will get things done. Once you activate the elements of change, you only need to participate in bringing about the change you seek or desire. It may not happen right away or as fast as you’d like but believe it will happen. Who knows? Maybe it will happen quicker…
Once the elements of change are active, you never know and with God, all is possible.
