Are You in the Twilight Zone?
Lori asked me a question the other day. She wanted to know if I ever feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone. I responded that, “I’m not just a frequent visitor; I live in the Twilight Zone.” And you know what? I think everyone should. Here’s why:
I’m a Law of Attraction coach and teacher, and I practice what I preach. I truly live in a world where I create my own reality. I take full responsibility for how I feel and for every experience that comes into my world.
I absolutely believe that we can change the world by giving our energy to the solution (what we want) instead of the problem (what we don’t want), and that in order to do so, we have to start with our own lives. Gandhi said that we must “be the change you want to see in the world”, and he was so right. But for me, this goes beyond simply being kinder to achieve a kinder world. It means truly becoming Who We Really Are and giving all of our attention (which is how we create our reality) to the vision of the world we want to achieve.
Being Who We Really Are, means being honest about how we feel and what we believe. It means having the courage not to panic when everyone else is. It means being willing to ignore what others think of us, ignore those who are vehemently focused on “reality”, that miserable, problem oriented world where everything is only getting worse, and unapologetically, unwaveringly, unflinchingly focusing on the solution.
When you shift your view towards the world you want to create, you’ll actually start to see more solutions. You’ll begin to see more and more evidence that the world is actually getting better every day (because it is). And you’ll find opportunities to add to those solutions.
So, focusing on the vision of what you want instead of what’s wrong with the world will not only make you a heck of a lot happier, but you’ll actually be doing your part to change the world.
One caveat: Don’t expect everyone else to understand. They’ll think you’re just in denial. But there’s a difference between being in denial, where you refuse to see any other options, and opening yourself to ALL the options (even those positive ones you never acknowledged before) and deliberately choosing to focus on the solution oriented ones.
As you do that consistently, and as you move into a world where solutions abound, it may well start to feel like you’ve moved into a different reality. And in a way, you have. Welcome to the Twilight Zone.
How solution oriented are you? Do you believe that you can change your experience by focusing in a more positive way? Do you ever feel as if you are in the Twilight Zone?
