Mastering Change with an Attitude of Gratitude

Mastering Change requires appreciation of what is right now

What makes us want to change something? Motivation for Change comes from preventing or relieving pain or aiming to fulfill a need or reach a goal. Life is constant movement and change on some level. The body renews every 7 years, you don’t inhale or exhale the same breath twice.DSC_0041

If we focus on the what we want to change, we tend to complain or stick to it (“I am/have too much or little …”). If we focus on the goal only, we risk to live in a state of lack. I want “more” implies I have “too little”.

Mastering Change requires focus and appreciation of what is right now rather than fight* it. Focus on appreciating the path rather than on one future moment of achieving that goal (the optimal weight, the perfect partner, overcoming a disease, the title, the reward, the first million). This way, we can have a great time living here and now rather than spending our lifetime chasing goals.

“May all our dreams come true provided we keep dreaming and going for our dreams.”

*Note: The fighting device that seems to hamper our full acceptance and gratitude for what we experience right now tends to be located in our minds/thinking. Become friend with the ego mind rather than fight it. E.g. next time that little voice says: “I hate to do this” or “I just can’t…..” say “Thank you for sharing – now be silent – I do it anyway.”
