In yesterday’s post I talked about my belief that I am a co-creator in my life. As opposed to crediting or blaming everything on God, destiny or the universe, I’m taking responsibility for what I manifest.
As I’ve refined that belief, and taken responsibility for my own health, career and happiness – I’ve gotten further along in all of those areas. It caused me to stop blaming outside factors for my failures. I began to see them as wakeup calls provided by the universe.
Let me give you an example:
I want to play in a tournament. I have some projects to finish before then. I have a series of speeches in Australia and New Zealand right afterward. It’s probably too much to do, but I want it all, so I do it. I sleep less. I eat erratic. I experience stress. To make it work, I take a red-eye, and fly straight through from Florida the night of the tournament, all the way to Perth Australia.
We win the tournament. I’m the hero at my speeches. I make a lot of money. Then I get a sinus infection and bronchitis and I’m sick for two weeks. I hate to be sick, so I’m miserable.
When this happened – and it did – I didn’t see it as God “punishing” me. I made some bad choices, got out of alignment of some universal principles and I paid the price.
Now you have two choices. Which is where we’ll pick up on the next post…
