Does Life Suck During Covid Times?

November 16, 2020

Life sucks? Wonder where your road is taking you? Read on.

Here’s an edited excerpt from November 29, 2012, Soulgoals’ Archives about how to reshape your destiny.

If you’re happy with your life, maybe you’d like it to be even better. If you’re not happy with your life, you can change it.

Maybe you feel it would take a miracle.

Well, here’s how to create them!

The reason people are able to create miracles is they ask for them, believe they can receive them, are open to receive, and have faith and confidence life will provide.

I know. It sounds like a tall order.

Me? I have experience in resisting them even though I longed for a way out.

I got a Ph.D. in 11th hour saves. Why? Because it took me that long to let go and trust.

I used worry as a strategy.

Spoiler alert: worry only makes things worse.

Strong emotional reactions skew perspective. By the way, they have nothing to do with what you think you’re upset about. They’re often from unresolved pain or the irritation of having given away your power. Blaming others is giving your power away, too. Take responsibility. Look deeper.

Everyone has childhood experiences where fear ruled. My highly charged, emotional upbringing with screaming parents introduced me to fear as my companion. Like holding onto a childhood blanket, I continued the legacy of anxiety into adulthood by attracting stressful situations.

It really didn’t matter what it was: health; relationships; financial; whatever. As long as something went wrong, I could feel that ole, familiar, sickening dread.

Like everyone else, I have stuff to deal with, but I’m not entertaining emotions of fear-worry-stress as houseguests anymore.

What emotional instant replays do you have?

What emotions do you usually feel when you’re down for the count? Awareness leads to freedom.

Instead of automatically giving your power to an emotion, your taste buds, the next shiny object, any Homo sapiens, the internet, a calendar date, scientists, politicians or habits, take a deep breath and question.

Question everything, including cherished beliefs.

What’s the truth underneath? Find quiet time and journal. Write about your thoughts and feelings. Get “it” off your chest. Amazing insights emerge, and your self-confidence rises.

This is especially true during Covid times.

You’re not alone in this process. You know the rug that stuff got swept under? Life is forcing everyone to clear out those dust bunnies and move on.

Make a clean sweep by seeing through illusions and making empowering choices. 

It’s never too late to reshape your destiny.

TIP: Having an I Love Lucy moment?

September 20, 2016

You’ve probably talked with someone who suddenly went off on you for no good reason. You’re like whaaa… what just happened?

Lately, getting a knee jerk reaction is easy if you mention something that others perceive to be opposed to their political viewpoint. Many have linked their well being and ability to be free on somebody outside themselves.

By the way, the only person who can make you happy and fulfilled is you. So don’t give away your power to anyone.

Now that you’ve got an idea of what I’m talking about, let’s bring it closer to home with your goals and some of your reactions.

Maybe you don’t lash out like Lucy did in her skit “Slowly I Turn,” which is found at the end of this TIP, but you feel that way inside.

For example, what response do you feel in your gut or heart when you hear or think about any of these:

  • You need money that you don’t have, and then you have visions of being in a stagecoach heading off the cliff (okay, I’m still watching a lot of old westerns).
  • You compare your success to others and decide you’re not keeping up with the Joneses, whoever they are – and what do they have to do with your life anyway?
  • You think you’re not accomplishing your goals fast enough and want to cry in your beer over remorse for not having had a better life – particularly disconcerting if you don’t drink beer.

These very emotions then attract more emotions to match!

And that’s why, if your life or business suck in some way, it starts with you.

To manifest anything other than the uglies, it’s essential to feel good REGARDLESS of your outer circumstances.

If you’re ready for something better, then change your perspective  This is 100% in your power to do.

When you see life from a different vantage point, your feelings change.

This creates Good Feeling Mojo, and you ignite your momentum for more things that will inspire you to feel good.

Most people react emotionally to circumstances.

You can use your head, too.

How do you know what you’re doing? Look at your life.

Ready for something more or better?  

Your TIP is to let go of ONE trigger to which you reflexively react.

Why only one? Because by releasing one pattern, there’s an entourage of others attached to it that will go away, too.

If you continue to get results you don’t want, I invite you to contact me about how to break free of going in circles at vg@ResolvedForResults.com

Now to demonstrate triggers, watch this funny, classic I Love Lucy clip.

It’s only 3 1/2 minutes. You can find the time.
