I recently shared with an audience the power we have in creating more certainty during uncertainty and how it comes from three distinct strategies. In our life, we will have challenges, tribulations and crises (like the COVID-19 event around the world). Rest assured though, there are strategies to assist us to “dance with our fear and uncertainties” rather than become a “victim of our fear and uncertainties”.
The first strategy is, understanding that our physiology affects our thoughts and emotions. When we breathe deeply (rather than shallow breathing), when we utilise an upright positive posture (rather than slouching or looking downwards), and when we move our body briskly (as in exercise, walking or running) we feel a lot better than if we did not do these activities. This is the power of PHYSIOLOGY.
The second strategy is how we use our thoughts (what we focus on) and language. Our language is a reflection of our thoughts. If we put in the effort to think differently, to focus on good things (things that are positive, lovely, enjoyable, empowering, noble) and if we focus on speaking positive things about our life and about others (words to the effect of “I am blessed”, “Life is getting better and better”, “everyday in everyway I am getting happier and happier”) then we will gravitate in the direction of our dominant thoughts and words. This is a law of life (just like gravity is a law of life). We have the will to create our environment from our consistent thoughts and words over a period of time (change gradually happens as we persist with the thoughts and words strategy). This is the power of MINDSET.
The third strategy is accessing spiritual power. We are all spiritual beings having an earthly experience. I explained that spiritual development begins with the understanding and differentiation of thoughts (positive and negative), progressing to greater control of our mind (meditation and stillness is a skill that we develop), going through a transformative phase (born again Christian, enlightenment, nirvana experience, etc), getting closer to the Creator through prayer, and eventually progressing to incredible levels of inner peace, joy and bliss through spiritual text or other means, that is not dependent on any one thing in the external (physical) world. This is the power of an INSPIRED LIFE (also known as being in the spirit or spiritual).
So there it is ….three distinct strategies that do work to give us all greater personal power to become more than overcomers as we journey through life’s ups and downs. One knows when they are on the pathway to mastery when they are exercising daily these three strategies in their life.
