SOS BOOK (Chapter 3.11) Overcoming doubts in starting personal transformation!
What delays us starting our self-development? What hinders this personal transformation? It’s usually our doubt or fears, especially in its hidden guises. But all this can be overcome! Sometimes just moving forward and focusing on achieving the intended goal is the best strategy!
WE LOSE MOMENTUM BY DOUBTING OURSELVES OR RUMINATING OVER SOME IMAGINED STORY!
Too often, instead of starting, being optimistic & forward looking, we focus on the negative. We dwell on our fears & doubts. We ourselves create the drama & negativity! This dissipates our energy, effort & enthusiasm. What a waste!
Ideally, we would remain un-attached and maintain a panoramic perspective. This is objectively observing our overall progress from an airplane or mountain top. We would aim to be neutral & compassionate in this self-assessment. We still interact with the minutiae of our day to day functioning, but we do it without the emotional drag.
BEING LESS FEARFUL & MORE OBJECTIVE HELPS US TO TRANSFORM.
Our self-development is further aided by making an inner connection, and some simple mind training. This is all part of our self-development. With an increased intuitive ability & more awareness, our lives will transform! The significance assigned to the minutiae of our daily existence just naturally diminish. Negative thoughts and emotions won’t trouble us as much, for we have a positive outlook and a bigger perspective.
We become increasingly grateful and forgiving! We gradually build a new mindset, a new self and a new future. This is a future of previously unthought of possibilities and potential.
WE CAN ACTIVELY DECIDE HOW WE PERCEIVE LIFE!
Previously we were more concerned with how to best cope with what we have, and how to maintain this. Remember the old way is not our true potential because it doesn’t tap into our hidden talent & abilities. This is merely a form of surviving, coping or just existing.
The old ways don’t let us become or ‘BE’ our fully empowered self. We are usually not using our enormous capacity & abilities to their best purpose. Our grand dreams and hidden abilities are dormant & idle!
NOW IS THE TIME TO START AND ENERGIZE THIS WHOLE PROCESS.
We can move forward actively & purposely in a positive direction. This is embracing the future we deeply desire from our inner being. We ourselves choose this personal path that leads to what we will become in the future. This process of ‘taking control’ is now further discussed in Chapter 3.12 of this ‘SOS Book’.
