What comes to your mind when the word “change” is mentioned? We often want to correct situations and help people around us to improve themselves. In other words, we want to be arrogant and change other people. It is just a complex of a movie director: let’s tell the actors of my reality how they need to behave to match the movie in my head. So we build a script in the studio of our minds and we want to boss whoever comes around. Or, we incorporate the good person character for the audience and the final applauses. When we live what we imagine, we cannot see the live take we are in, and we repeat unpleasant situations over and over, sometimes with a different cast and sometimes, just like the narrative in The Groundhog Day, with the same people, living the same day.
It takes effort and discipline to go through with our changes, which is the last thing we want to do. We must repeat the new behaviour until the reality changes and until it becomes natural to do so. It doesn’t make much sense if a child only learns how to walk 10 steps, he must make the effort until he strives to walk naturally, without even thinking about it. This is how we should handle our changes. Actually, as a child, we are thrilled and excited to learn how to change and develop ourselves. As an adult, we think that we can only like what we already know or we want to be loyal to our past references, whatever this means, it is just pride and prejudice, two features that sabotage our progress.
To live your purpose, close-up the main character in this movie: yourself! With a different attitude towards the situations that repeat themselves in your life, you create a new consciousness of your future reality.
Change now and live a different effect.
