Living a life based on chosen words or statements can be truly empowering. Words, when lived by, not only exist to create the future by taking actions consistent with what you said you’d do but also they make things manifest with your way of being.
Put another way, words serve as a self-fulfilling prophecy. So be careful with what you say as it can have an effect on the outcome… For example, the statement ‘it’s just my luck that…’ could manifest something undesired because you said that would happen!
Living a life based on recognising the power of your word can mean the difference between being at cause with things as opposed to allowing yourself to be subject to the unpredictable wheel of circumstance. Which will you chose?
So, bearing this in mind, here are my five golden statements for handling life effectively.
1. I am responsible
Responsibility, at least at times, can be quite misunderstood. To some responsibility implies more burden; more problems to deal with, but it doesn’t have to be interpreted this way. Responsibility can be wholly embraced: The more responsibility embraced the more control you have in your life.
2. I am self-sufficient
Self-sufficiency is the key to life-handling. How can you ever really grow when you’re not self-sufficient? Self-sufficiency is stability, having a job, enough money, satisfying relationships. When people don’t achieve this they spend most of their time stuck on fear, anxiety, and worry; living life one day at a time, preventing real growth, fulfillment, and living a life that’s nurturing.
3. If I can’t see it I won’t handle it
In other words if there are things you cannot handle in life then it could be that you’re not aware of the full picture. For example, in business, companies know that having full visibility in the supply chain means minimising the risk. Or, if something is not working in your life then it’s necessary to have the realization that something’s missing; that you need to look outside of your current paradigm and see the bigger picture.
4. Face the communication
This golden statement can be compared to the old adage ‘what you resist will persist’ as in the case of communication. Someone willing to face the communication with whatever shows up in life is a person well and truly committed to living life to the fullest.
Someone who shies away or will not deal with a particular area of communication will have difficult or confronting situations forever showing up in life as patterns related to what it is they will not face the communication in.
For example, the woman who will not tolerate bad language around her will inevitably be forever shocked or offended. Then there are those who ‘dry up’ in the conversation because someone has touched upon certain areas they cannot confront. This one may be an ego issue.
5. I will not be a victim
Life will show up as a consequence of where you are consciously: Life manifests as a result of your thoughts, considerations, attitude, emotional behavior, feelings, and if all this is to a certain extent associated with negativity then you could well end up in situations where you are a victim.
-What goes on internally will manifest externally.
I never underestimate the power to say to myself “I will not be a victim,” making sure that my thoughts, considerations, attitude, emotional behavior, feelings, etc., do not pull me in to victim consciousness. Hence the saying, “I am not a victim.” Since the world’s population has a truly overwhelming number of victims I would never underestimate this golden statement.
So, there you have my five golden statements for handling life effectively!
