You’re starving. You skipped breakfast to sleep late and get to work on time. It’s 11 a.m. A co-worker offers you a doughnut. Do you eat it? Or do you say, “No, thanks.”
What you do depends on your conscious intention. (Please notice. The doughnut does not change.)
Do you want to satiate your hunger? Then, of course, you eat the doughnut. It’s perfect.
Do you want to lose weight, increase your energy, fit into slimmer clothing, and feel healthy and relaxed? Then you don’t eat the doughnut.
Do you want to satiate your hunger and be healthy? Then you pull out your green drink and sip on that instead.
Now, of course, having a green drink may require a few other changes such as setting the conscious intention to prepare one and consciously setting aside the time to do it.
Do you set conscious intentions about what you want to bring into your life? Or are you living such a chaotic lifestyle that you’re functioning on autopilot?
… for just one moment, and notice what’s going on, both inside you and outside of you. Is your body tense? Does your back hurt? Do you have a headache?
Are you in an environment full of loud noise, critical people, and people who don’t do what they say they’ll do?
Ouch! Pay attention. Is this fun? Do you want to keep all this soul clutter in your life?
If not, start thinking about what you can change. You don’t directly change what’s going on around you. You change what’s going on inside of you. That’s where your power lies.
What are you thinking? What are you feeling? What are your resources? What can you do differently that will move you forward toward health, energy, enthusiasm and peace?
Consciously use your power of conscious intention and be amazed at the huge personal shift it brings into your life!
