“If you correct your mind, the rest of your life will follow.” – Lao Tzu
In this rush around busy world it’s easy to get distracted and off course. It’s also easy to fall back into old habits, procrastinate, become impatient because you’re suddenly feeling stuck and frustrated enough that your attitude begins to go in a direction you really didn’t want it to go.
Stop the madness, take a deep breath, close your eyes just for a moment and visualize the blessing in your life or even just something that makes you smile. Feel the tension leave and your mind reset.
When we correct our mind, control and focus our thoughts on the end result instead of the past or even the chaos around us, our perspective shifts and so does our attitude. Only by clearing and calming our mind can we again see the possibilities in front of us.
I love the visual that says when you come to a cliff and it seems there is no way out, throw out your arms and prepare to take a leap of faith. Go on, leap into that dream, that new opportunity, the net will appear.
