Sometimes the world doesn’t feel like a fair place and it’s okay to feel that way because, in the end, it’s right – nothing’s fair. Life is what you make of it. It’s what you do daily and how you look at the world – do you see opportunities or obstacles? Are you using the present moment to create something or you’re just chilling on your couch waiting for good things to happen?
It’s okay both ways. You’re right where you have to be to learn and grow and set yourself free. You can be whoever you want to be. Let yourself do the things that you’re supposed to be!
It’s how you look at the world and the things that happen to you. Do you learn from your actions and change them? Or do you repeat the same actions expecting a different result?
”We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
It’s how Albert Einstein said it and it describes the situation perfectly. In order to improve yourself and level yourself up, it’s useful to look at your life from a different perspective. Look at the bigger picture.
Don’t focus on what’s bad because it can only throw you in a loop of bad thoughts. Focus on what’s good and the ways you can improve it even more. Don’t think about what you can’t do, do the opposite and write down things you can do. Make a list of what you’ve learned so far and then you’ll see many more things you can learn to make your life better.
Your mind is constantly doing the work – it’s soaking up the information, processing the data and it’s giving you insights into what is happening all around you (and also within).
The question is – what kind of information is your mind getting? Is it useful for your growth or is it a try to get your mind off the work? What I mean is – it differs if you’re watching a tutorial on how to create a shelf from when you’re watching the latest Simpsons episode.
But what is more important is what your mind does at the time you’re watching or doing something. If you set it the right way, you could be doing anything and still be gaining a lot of insights.
Set your mind to specific tasks and let it work. For example, I need an idea for the next post on my blog. What I do is I tell it to myself, very often I write it down so it stays at the back of my mind. Then I continue doing other things and whenever I stumble across something that could fit the description I wrote, my mind shows it to me. Or should I say – the Universe reveals itself?
I think the mind simply knows where it should focus and when it needs to give you a hint. If I didn’t remind myself of the thing I needed, I would probably scroll past the exact piece of information I decided to look at.
The amount of data that goes through us is enormous and it’s impossible to be aware of everything. So how do you make sure you don’t miss anything that’s important to you? Exactly – by making your mind work in the desired direction.
When you understand this principle and get used to it, it starts to happen naturally. After all – it is a natural ability and many of us work like that without even knowing.
This is something I can’t stop talking about. It goes hand to hand with the perception you have. It’s your attitude towards the world. Do you appreciate the things you have or do you take them for granted?
It’s easy to forget how lucky we really are. Especially in this high-pace rapidly-changing world where every moment of our time is filled with as much information as our ancestors would get in a lifetime.
That’s why we need to remind ourselves of the gifts we are given. It’s essential to multiply good in our lives. When you count your blessings, you find more and more good things to be happy about. The same goes for when you’re looking at the dark side of the world. You get whatever you focus on.
Be grateful that you’re alive! Many people didn’t wake up today despite the plans they had. Use the time that you’ve been given to achieve your goals and grow as an eternal being you are.
Be grateful for the mind you can control! Not all of us are born with a mind they can control. Your mind is a gift, a tool for you to use in order to expand your knowledge and gain wisdom! Set it working in the direction you want!

“It’s a funny thing about life, once you begin to take note of the things you are grateful for, you begin to lose sight of the things that you lack.”
