Set your sights on distant horizons and never give up!
We can often be pulled down to stare at the ground in front of us and lose perspective. When your focus is so narrow, it’s hard not to get depressed by what seems to be insurmountable obstacles. This is rarely the truth of your circumstances.
It’s far more likely that, if you lift your head up, you will see that although the path may be long and the goal seems to be far away, with every step you will get closer. It is when you stop realizing that the ultimate destination is still possible that you will fall back into despair and fear-based thinking.
The Law of Attraction
All too often, this kind of thinking becomes your reality. The Law of Attraction is not about obtaining great wealth, though that is possible. It’s also not about fooling yourself into thinking something is possible when every fiber of your being belies that to your current reality. The key is focusing not on what you don’t have or even what you think you want to have, since both only acknowledge that which is clearly what is. Attracting something new into your life requires that you move toward your goals with resolve and positive action.
Manifesting a new reality is not difficult, but it does take changing your state of mind. The mind likes things to stay the same; changing your mind is difficult since it requires embracing more than is known and stepping into the less-known.
Embracing the Coming Storm
You may look out to the horizon and see a storm forming. Storms can be scary. They may bring strong winds and rain, tornadoes and blizzards. What will happen when it reaches us cannot be completely known, that is what makes us fearful.
There are two distinct responses to an approaching storm; one is to do nothing, either over-confident of your level of preparation or resolved to fear; the other is to spring into action. With action, you may still experience the results of the storm, but you will know that you have done everything you could have done to prepare. This is embracing the storm. You acknowledge the potential threats, do what you can and then live with the results. Anything else is just pride, arrogance or fear.
Fear and Never Giving Up
There is an all-too-human reaction to seemingly great odds when things appear to be against us; fear. Fear is our animal instinct to the unknown. The reaction is usually fight-or-flight. Fear itself is not wrong, but it is the default position when we don’t understand what is happening. The answer is to convert the instinct to fear into the more productive action of breathing into that which we don’t yet understand and find a way to make sense of it in a non-reactive way.
By never giving up, you increase the likelihood of that becoming your reality. When you look up from the few steps directly in front of you, the known, and start focusing on that distant horizon, you begin the journey toward your ultimate goal. The path will continue to stretch out before you, but with resolve, it will get easier without succumbing to fear.
