“There is never a conflict with person or condition, but rather a false concept mentally entertained about person, thing, circumstance, or condition. Therefore, make the correction within yourself, rather than attempting to change anyone or anything in the without.” Joel Goldsmith/the Infinite Way
I have to decide how I am going to perceive a person, thing, circumstance, or condition.
This is always totally up to me.
Do I want to dwell on the good? Or do I want to spend my time dwelling in the negative?
Can I take a moment and look for the good in a person or a situation, even though at first glance, it is undesirable?
There are three main points of consideration here;
First, even though you have to look really hard at times, there is always good in every situation. There just is. Ever hear the old saying, “Every dark cloud has a silver lining?” Are you willing to look for the good?
Secondly, it would serve us well to remember that, “like attracts like.” This means that if we see the negative and we dwell on the negative, then we will create more negative. We can at any time, make the decision to find the good and speak it. We can even decide to feel good instead of feeling bad. And when we dwell on the good, more good is sure to follow. (This is Universal Law)
Third, it truly is up to us as individuals to decide. Nobody is responsible for your feelings. Sorry, but they just aren’t. Unless, of course, you decide to give them that power. We live in a toxic society where people commonly say, “You made me feel angry.” or “Look what you made me do!” And then the craziest part is that when we actually buy into it and think that we are responsible for the feelings of another. Nope.
And fourth, has anyone ever told you that you are powerless over other people, places, and things? If not, I’m telling you that now. Life is a whole lot easier when we stop trying to do what cannot be done. What you can do though, is change yourself and your perception.
The exercise here is to pick out a person or a situation in your life to try this on. It could be anything that is a current undesirable. Someone at work, a family member, a life circumstance, whatever it may be, the Law is the Law.
Find something good and speak it out loud. Find something good about that person you cannot stand, and go compliment them. Find something good about a life circumstance and whenever you talk about it, speak the good that you see.
As Joel Goldsmith teaches us in his book, “The Infinite Way,” the work must be done within.
By following these four simple instructions, you can change your entire life. It’s all up to you.
