Do you face each day with a smile, enthusiasm and a plan? Or, do you plan to just cope with what comes along? Is your objective every morning to survive whatever life throws at you - or do you have a plan to thrive? Or, have you already learned the secret to life - how to create what you want and so you can thrive - not just survive?
The one thing you can count on is that if you choose to cope with life as it comes along - that is exactly what will happen. You will cope, make do, survive and endure but is that all life is about - coping, surviving and enduring things that happen.
The use of positive energy in your life and personal environment and the principles of Feng Shui are all tools, yes tools, you can use to help you do more than just cope with life. They are a large part of creating a plan to help you be in-control of your life so you can create a better life and not just cope with what is thrown at you day in and day out.
Thought Creates Change
The important part of this action plan is the word “create. " One of my favorite thoughts or pieces of wisdom I often share with friends is, “Think it to create it so it can happen. Action follows thoughts. " Unless you think about something better than just settling, coping or getting-by when it comes to living your life - something does not happen.
If you want to move from coping to thriving or from just getting-by to prosperity then you need to have thriving and prosperous thoughts within to create the energy shift necessary to bring about positive change. You may not be able change the entire world but you can change you and shift the energy in your surroundings so you can flourish, thrive and prosper.
Create a Plan
Listed below are several options that will help you to create a new way of both looking at and living your life. Try as many as possible so you can find which ones work best for you.
The real secret in this plan is you. The best and only place to begin is to change you. Begin with your thoughts. And, remember, the most important thing is, “Think it to create it so it can happen. Action follows thoughts. " Make sure your thoughts are in alignment with your dreams and goals because you will create what you constantly think. This is truly a case where everything you say, think and do matters.
