The Biggest Risk

"The biggest risk of life isn't making mistakes, but it's regret, missing out on experiences."

Isn't that the truth! We are bound to make mistakes in life. We are all human and are not perfect. But there are plenty of times in our lives when we see opportunities and still pass them by. But why? Why do we let perfectly good opportunities pass us by?

Life is all about taking chances. Many of us feel self doubt, or discouragement from other sources. There are many reasons that a person could come up with for not taking a risk, following their dream, or even stepping out of their comfort zone. We become afraid. We are afraid that things will not work out. We are afraid that maybe this isn't the best idea. Or things will be easier if I follow what others think and believe. A lot of times we are afraid of change. These are all reasons for us to turn down our dreams. So why is it easier for us to turn down opportunities than to take them? Well frankly, sometimes it can be hard to step out of our comfort zones and take a chance. Sometimes the risks are too great and we begin to worry and fear what could happen. We should not fear the future. We should be up for a challenge. It's okay to make mistakes. It's okay to mess up sometimes. But most of all we shouldn't even be worrying about that. We should know that everything happens for a reason, and everything will turn out no matter which path we choose. Don't be afraid to take a risk. Everything will be okay.

We need to have more faith in ourselves, and the Universe. Opportunities are given to us for a reason and we should not doubt if it is something we truly have been wanting. We need to realize and believe that our higher power will provide. There is nothing too big or too small for the Universe. We can have whatever it is we dream about. We just have to realize that it is there waiting for us. We need to reach out and take it. Take that risk. It is worth the price. Believe things will work out, and they always do!

What is your Focus?

Does it ever seem like sometimes you get stuck in a rut? Do things seem to keep happening to you? One thing after another? How can you get things to stop and turn around for you? Is there anything we can we do to change our circumstances?

Yes. Yes. and Yes! Sometimes it seems like everything is going good for us. And we are completely content and happy with life and the situations in it. But then there are other times when everything that could possibly go wrong does. How come life works this way? Well the answer is much simpler than we can imagine. It is our own personal thoughts and attitudes on the subject. It's easy to continue that happy and joyful feeling when things are going good. And it is also easy to get caught up with negative emotions when bad things happen. We are all human, and it is completely normal to have and experience negative emotion. But it is how we choose to deal with the situation and most of all our thoughts. We can change our thoughts whenever we choose. We can at any point choose to feel differently or focus on a new subject. This can be very challenging at some point, but it must be done.

It is so easy to think about what is right in front of us. It is easy for us to focus on a situation at hand. But if we are currently focused on "what is" then we can never change the circumstance. As long as you are more aware of what you don't want rather than what you do want regarding the situation, what you do want cannot come to you because you are focusing on what you don't want. When you are focused on what you don't want, you are attracting more of that into your life and will continue to do so as long as you stay on that pattern of thinking. We must shift our mood, our emotions, and our thoughts to positive. You must take your attention away from the issue and choose to focus on things that make you feel good. One of the best ways to change from negative to positive thoughts is by being thankful. Be thankful for whatever you can possibly think of, down to the smallest of things. There are so many reasons to be grateful, and when we are then we are bringing back positive thoughts, which will begin to attract all the good things in life. It will be only a matter of time before your life is back on track.

Most people do not realize that their thoughts are creating their lives. Your current thoughts will bring your future to you. Look around. What do you see? Everything in your life and your current situation, you have attracted whether it be good or bad. Are you happy with where you are? To attract positive things into your life you must be thinking positive thoughts the majority of the time. If you are looking to make improvements then start with your thoughts and you will soon see the changes in your experience. Your thoughts change everything.
