You HAVE a Say!!

You know, over the years I never voted in elections regularly. I truly believed that I never had an affect on the outcome of the election. "How could just ONE vote make a difference?" I used to think... And to be honest, it may seem like one vote by itself could never make that difference that I wanted it to, but what if I looked at this from a different point of view?

Instead of looking at it from the result of my vote, what if I voted and didn't think about the outcome? Surely there are areas in your life that you have done this, right?

For example, what if I were to decide to lose weight, and I never looked at the scale or result. I simply just took care of what needed to be done, and let the outcome take care of itself. -I bet you that most people who stop their dieting New Year's Resolutions in early February never thought of it that way, because they were looking to the result, and the outcome wasn't happening fast enough so they quit.

Yet we always look to the result, and it prevents us from getting there because it's usually not happening in our time frame (which is always completely unreasonable) So in many ways, we sabotage our results by looking at them before we even do the work to get them! Then obstacles appear, and if we were just fixated on doing the work in front of us, it wouldn't matter, right? But we now become completely discouraged by these obstacles, or life happening to us. Sound familiar?

Of course it does, you're human. It happens to ALL of us. You're no different than me, and I'm certainly no different than you.

But what if I told you that you had a say in the matter? What if I told you that you could change these results by simply changing your view about them?

In EVERY situation, you have a say in the matter. Whether life happens to you, or whether you happen in life, you have a say. You will have a much more significant contribution to the result you want by HOW YOU REACT to every situation. -THAT is your say...

You can take this say in the matter to any level, or any situation because it is your belief system that is talking. -It's certainly not that annoying voice inside your head that is always telling you the negative stuff as if it's guiding you to a fruitful and loving life, is it? In case you were wondering if you have that voice, stop for a second a listen. ...

Yep, it was that voice that you just heard that said, "I don't have a voice" or the one that said, "I wonder if I have one?" This voice will be with you til the day you die, and it will never shut up. But you have a say in that matter too...

You can try to control the results of your life, or you can always believe that you have a say in the matter of how it occurs to you. Life will occur the same way to many people, and yet there are many different interpretations about how it occurs by the meaning you give it.

And the meaning you give it, is all you can change from a situation you think you cannot change...
