A Sense of Self

October 29, 2019

Part 2. 


The most valuable lesson that I try to impress upon the students who attend A Positive Start, is a lesson that is so simplistic and so easy for anyone to achieve, it appears blatantly obvious to them as soon as they get it. To give an example of what I mean by that;  can you recall a time when you are in mid conversation and you try to remember the name of something but can't?  That awful aching feeling as your brain searches through the filing cabinets in your mind, hunting for the illusive information that escapes you. The relief experienced when you chance upon the right file and the name suddenly pops back into your head, do you know that feeling? well that's the feeling! A feeling of relief. 


It's almost as if the answer has been staring them in the face for years and they have completely overlooked it - just as I once did. They sense, just as I did, that they are destined for better things - for great things, deserving of a more fulfilling life, instead of being where they are, struggling with situations of adversity or a lack of money, or no work, or a difficult relationship that makes them anxious and miserable or some other situation that they long to escape from but can see anyway out of. They feel certain this isn't the path they were meant to be following and they are absolutely right about that. They long for change, but no matter how hard they try, change does not come. Instead the same old cycle, going round and round -  like being stuck in a washing machine on spin cycle - its sickening.


It gives me great pleasure and a sense of reward, witnessing the results. Change happens as soon as the lesson is understood and heeded, and the results speak for themselves. I have witnessed change that can only be described as  'phenomenal'. 


In the simplest of terms, the lesson I want to impress is this; 


The way you FEEL about anything -  is everything,

And the solution starts with the way you feel about YOU. 

The solution to any problem is within you; look within.

Ask yourself, honestly,

' How do I feel about me'. If you are walking around full of negative emotions towards yourself; anger, hatred, frustration, guilt, apathy, shame or worthlessness - you will live a life reflective of those feelings. 

If you are walking around full of positive emotions; Joy, Excitement, Enthusiasm, Gratitude, Love, Peace, Worth, your life experience will be reflective of those feelings.

The way you FEEL about anything - is everything.
