Escape to reality

Where is your reality?

Here’s a great piece of advice.

 Accept responsibility for the choices you make and break free from the illusion that you are a helpless victim of circumstance. All choices in life create results and consequences, either positive or negative. These consequences exist whether your choice was made consciously or through habit, programming or doing what you think is expected of you.

 If you see your life as meaningless, view yourself as insignificant and powerless or look at things that happen to you as inconsequential, irrelevant or random you’re missing the opportunity to shape your life for the better.

 When you see your life as meaningful, exciting and evolving as you learn, grow and try new things you live a life of expectancy and control. You won’t always get the results you want and it’s possible that bad things can still happen but you can influence the outcome, change your approach and try again. Leaving it up to happenstance is no way to live.

 You can attract the type of people you want in your life by becoming that type of person. If you want loving people in your life you must become loving, if you want to be successful associate with successful people, if you want a happy family life then that starts with you. All change in the world starts with your own actions. You just have to decide what you want.

 Intention is the use of your will. It’s more than wishing for something, wanting something or hoping that something happens. It’s being determined to create it. So many people float along in life reacting to the world and taking whatever is dished out to them. They want things to be different but are always looking to someone or something else to provide it – the government, their boss or ‘the system’.

 They’re ‘life’s battlers’ – tune in to any current affairs program and you will see a constant stream of people getting kicked around. Politicians love them, the ‘average, everyday working families, the suburban mum and dads’ – what does that mean? Often portrayed as cattle doing what they’re told, not making waves or asking questions.

 I do understand that there’s entrenched, compound social disadvantage. People caught in circumstances which mean they struggle to get through each day, and have difficulty thinking about anything other than survival. These people deserve to be helped, and ideally we can all create a more prosperous world to support them.

 I’m talking about the group of people that say they want things to be better for themselves and their family but won’t do a single thing differently to achieve it. They’re constantly waiting for the handout. How much better could their lives be if they did take some type of responsibility, no matter how small? We can all do that.

 So, take a step. Do something differently. Set a goal and work towards it. Nothing worthwhile ever comes easily so decide what you want and take that first step today. That’s the art of the start.
