It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.

-Tony Robbins

You may well know now that experience is a teacher that shows no favorites. Her teachings are cold and unsympathetic, sometimes even brutal. Ouch, such is life. It is by progressing through pain to the positive that you truly live. Your character is built on painful times. Endure; you are a strong oak, even if today you feel like a small acorn.


You move your energy when you decide not to perceive pain in a hard fact, but instead see an opportunity to grow. Pain in life is inevitable. We all lose loved ones. Ultimately, we will all die. Suffering in life is a choice you make when you describe the pain of now or the uncertainty of your future to yourself repeatedly.

Suffering and pain therefore continue to be manifest in your life. When you tell yourself the story of the pain you feel, the description you create is more than just the facts and here’s where you create the gory details. No more! Intend good health and peace for yourself: You are able to take action and face fears.

Since birth you have perceived that taking in information and giving meaning to that information. You have established patterns of response to information you experienced which you refer back to when you face similar situations. This reference structure has proved itself reliable to you. You use it time and again until you now believe its results are true. Your belief system’s truth is circular. It is built from your perceived experience and referenced back unto itself for validation.

You are a collection of everything you have ever distilled from your life experiences. You create adaptations to painful scenarios, like loss of love. You then design different strategies to assist you in maneuvering through your life so you experience as little pain as possible. Your subconscious programming is triggered automatically. You must intercede on your own behalf to grow past its limitations. You must reprogram yourself for higher success.

Listen to the story you are telling yourself about the cold clinical facts of your life. The facts of your life have no emotion. You give life its pain and its pleasure through your unique perception and how you interpret facts. When you get stuck in your mind, in your story, it separates you from the moment. There is only this moment. No other moment exists. You have constructed your reality through the story you tell yourself. You have a choice of perception because everything comes down to preference. What do you want in this moment?

Your mind has infinite capacity, and it is critical to realize that at all times something is always encoding your subconscious mind. Better it be you programming you. If not you, then who? Don’t just let whim steal your subconscious creative power. This is very serious when you realize that your subconscious does not question the data. You, like every one of us, are constructing a map to navigate your way through life as painlessly as possible.   If you do not like where you are standing then you know you need to change. Change the next thought in your mind, ask: What do I want? Shift your vibration now, you can only hold one vibration at a time, make it positive. Where there is light there is no darkness. Keep shining your light. You know the way.

Blue sign points the way to happiness

Be compassionate with yourself. Look at yourself and say, ‘You have done the best you know how to do with the resources you have available until now.’ Your belief system to this point is made up mostly of what you have been able to make up about the world and the tactics you have used to find your way through it as safely as possible.

Remember much of your belief system you constructed by default. Through environment and circumstance your young mind wrote operating programs to keep you safe. Now some of these antiquated beliefs have become negative scripts that you play out of habit. These harmful scripts prevent you from getting what you want. They muddle your preferences and keep you living in fear.

Your perception defines your life; there are no two ways about this. You can take control of your perception. Actively choose your preference in each moment. In life victory goes to those who have developed strength of character, determination and self-control. Now you have options and you know it. Take an active role in your life; let your preference lead the way. Start from where you are. It is the only place you can begin.

Intentionally Affirm

I intend that choice is mine for the asking. I now ask choice into my life. I allow it in positively; for I know that I am safe. I am grateful; I give thanks. So be it, so it is.
