“If you want to travel far and fast, do the travel light,” says Cesare Pavese. “Take away all enviable, jealousy, intolerance, selfishness and fears.”
We all travel through life with memories, experiences and stories that serve as the backdrop to our lives. We're getting closer to every new meeting with an invisible backpack full of everything we think we need to navigate successfully. If we take a closer look at our backpacks, we will find happy memories, satisfying aha's moments, financial successes, hopes and dreams. These are packed together with grief, intolerance, losses, and fears. Although our lives are full of abundance of experiences, we often deduct good and amplify bad.
Psychologists have discovered that despite the good things we have done, negative emotions are addressed in the other hemisphere in the brain for positive emotions. For this reason, negative emotions require more thought and more information to solve. In addition, Professor Roy Baumeister, co-author of Bad Bad Than Good, discovered that bad experiences have more impact on us than good ones. This makes it easy for us to forget the things that we are grateful for.
To loosen our luggage and empty the invisible backpacks so that we can travel quickly, we must empty out the negative beliefs and unpleasant situations that we justified adhering to and the stories "They did me wrong." We must eliminate as many things as we can.
Start transforming your life and empty your bag by doing the following:
Remember the good that happens to you. Five (5) good things will change one negative experience. This is an excellent time to start a gratitude magazine or "Daily Miracle Daily". List five or more things you are grateful for. In gratitude, there are no limits. There are no big or small miracles. There is only gratitude. Within a year, you will have from 365 to 1825 "daily" miracle.
Prague listings. Create a list of things you've done that you can brag about. Try to list seven things. Make this list easily available and review it at least weekly. Your optimistic list will remind you that in the midst of every new storm, you are absolutely amazing and have already invaded many storms. When life whispers, "You can't withstand the storm." I answered, "I'm a storm."
Recognize the miracle. Each experience brings with it a set of lessons and blessings. List of lessons learned, insights gained. If you can't change the situation, use the lessons learned and ideas gained so you can change the way you think about them. Asking yourself how you can grow from this experience will help you find the golden mass in the midst of what you think is dark.
Now your bags are lighter. What is the next stop?
ride. Your dream is waiting.
Aspire for a lot! Live the life you imagined.
Remember that life is too short to drink cheap champagne.
