Create Yourself

Create Yourself!

This is an article that I wrote for Mastin Kipp for The Daily Love Blog – I hope you all enjoy it – Please visit Mastin’s blog for some very inspiring articles.

Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.’George Bernard Shaw

The idea that we all have the power to create ourselves can be overwhelming for many of us. The realisation that we have the choice of becoming who we want to be may be daunting because we will be moving out of our comfort zone and may experience failure.

However, the truth is that regardless of whether it is good or bad we create our reality everyday.  Our thoughts lead to our actions, which result in the life we live.  We are creating ourselves every minute of every day.

Indeed, we can’t deny that people and events have an influence on our life, but the ultimate decision on how we deal with these is always ours.  We have more control than many of us imagine, but we need to appreciate this and constructively use this power we have over our own life to improve our today and tomorrow.

What we need to ask ourselves is: Are we ready to create a life that reflects our vision of our future?  If the answer is yes then firstly, we need to:

‘Know thyself’ – understanding and taking responsibility for who we are, is key: our thoughts, feelings, beliefs and actions.

Our thoughts create our reality, and we are who we believe ourselves to be.  We need to know where we want to go, where we want to be and then remove and deal with all the obstacles that are holding us back.  We need to be committed to creating ourselves and not lose hope when we have small falls and set backs.

Always remember never let past hurts and failures hold you back from going towards something that you want now.  Use the past to make you stronger for today.  It is only when we have understood and dealt with issues from our past that we can move forward with creating our future.

Once you have accepted and understood where you are, the next stage is to work on where you want to be and how you want to get there.

Life will always in some way give us back what we have given to life. It’s a universal law.  Our life is a reflection of our actions and our actions are a reflection of our thoughts.   Therefore if we think positive thoughts our reality becomes brighter too – by lighting our own path we brighten the road for another too.  The more we improve our own life, the stronger we become for helping others.  When we help others we help ourselves too, because the universe will always send positive energy back in our life.

A great story that reflects this is ‘The Echo of Life’:

A father and son were walking in the mountains. Suddenly, the boy fell and screamed loudly. To his surprise, he heard his voice repeating somewhere in the mountain:

“AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!” Curious, he shouted again: “Who are you?” He received an answer: “Who are you?” And then he screamed to the mountain: “I admire you!” The voice answered: “I admire you!” Angered at the response, he screamed: “Coward!” He received the reply: “Coward!”

He looked at his father and asked what was happening.  The father smiled and said: “My son, pay attention and he shouted at the top of his voice: “You are a champion!” The voice echoed: “You are a champion!” The boy was surprised, but still did not understand. Then the father explained:

“People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE.” It gives you back everything you say or do. Our life is simply a reflection of our actions. If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart. This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life; Life will give you back everything you have given to it.”

So start today in creating a more positive You. But most importantly remember for your creation process to be a success it’s vital that you have faith in yourself.  Always remember you can achieve anything you put your heart too, because when you don’t fear losing you will always be a winner!
