Good Morning Everybodeeeee!!!!!! I trust this is finding things well with you. And if not, I know things can get difficult, just know that things will get better. They always do, it’s simply a matter of the glass half full viewpoint in life.
That is my topic today – Do you want to be Empowered or Enabled? It’s been a very interesting week for me meeting people. I have come to the conclusion there are 2 types of people in this world: those that want to be empowered, and those that want to be enabled.
Let me give some examples. Did you ever know someone who has the worst lick in the world? I mean the ones who have these incredulous things happen to themselves (health,etc.,), their car, their professional lives? It simply doesn’t seem possible for so many things to continuously go wrong! And then there are those who may have similar things go wrong, and yet they bounce back onto something even more good after that. Why does this happen?
Some say it’s the power of prayer, other say optimism, and even other say it’s just plain luck. Whatever you believe in and Whomever you believe in ( I myself do believe in God and the power of prayer), there is a common denominator here and that is the belief in the positive. Now I’m not saying that the 1st example doesn’t believe in God, or optimism, or good luck. What I am saying is that on a subconscious level the latter do believe that everything is going to turn out okay.
Here, let me put it another way, when something goes wrong – do you think to yourself ‘Okay, this is really bad, but I know there is a reason behind it and that it’ll all work out.’ or do you think ‘Man, I knew this would happen to me.’? We do need a certain amount of healing time to lick our wounds and get back on the bike. However, do you continuously look for sympathizers to tell you how horrible something is, or do you look for someone to tell you that this is only temporary and help you find the sunshine behind the clouds?
I like to empower people to get healthier, to reach new higher levels in their health, to break free of the enabling chains. I want to cut you free instead of seeing you every month or 3 for a tune up. Maybe that’s not a good work model for some professionals. In my mind, I would rather see you in the store or on FB saying how AWESOME you feel, than have you come to see me because your adrenals are still shot or your sugar is still off, that weight we had gotten rid of decided to come back or you still have stomach issues. Why did this happen? Because you – stopped exercising(I am soooo busy), taking digestive enzymes, were too busy to take your supplements, were too busy to eat right but had enough time to get a coffee and burger.
Do you see what I am getting at? Is your life is more important than your health? You are not going to have a life if you do not have your health, it’s that simple. Now, I am not saying to stop all your meds, start meditating and life will be a bowl of pitless cherries. What I am saying is LIKE yourself. Put yourself in your dayplanner. Find that person that will break you free of those negative thoughts that are dragging you down. Believe in yourself that you can make it through the next hour.
I am going to die healthy, I am not going to live my life sick. How about you? Empowered or Enabled, Your choice.
