Does it seem to you that some people are just always happy and enjoying themselves? Does it seem as though they have the perfect life? Well guess what? They do! But here’s the most interesting and exciting revelation. So can you!
Pop psychology, spiritualists and mystics have been trying to tell us for many years that our attitude is everything and that it determines our view on the world and also the way we experience our life. But, most people still believe that reality (the external world), shapes and determines how we experience our life and the world. It determines how we feel, what we think, the way we perceive things and our way of being (our internal world and ourselves).
But, now, the sciences such as Biology and Physics also have proven what pop psychology has been sprouting for years. It is our own thoughts, feelings, the way we see and perceive things around us that dramatically shape and determine our so-called reality.
I’m sure it took a long time for people in Columbus’s time to believe that the planet was round. Copernicus’ generation would have struggled for a long time to believe that the earth isn’t the centre of the universe, and that the planets revolve around the sun. So, it will take some time yet before “we” comprehend Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle – It is the unavoidable tendency of humans to influence particles, just by our observing them.
I’m not sure about you, but I’m always excited when I remind myself that I have the ability to change the way my life experiences pan out. That’s so much more empowering than feeling as though I’m just powerless and have to deal with outside forces and whatever live throws at me.
How does this relate to our social life, dating, and ultimately connecting with a loving partner? As Tony Robbins exclaims “Change your state of being to achieve a different outcome.” There are lots of ways to do this. Too many for this story. So, if you are not getting the outcome you’d like, give yourself one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. Adopt a positive attitude, see life as an adventure and maintain a curiosity and fascination for life. Life is a product of the observer’s intent.
Here’s a link to a Ted Talk on this subject by Shawn Achor: The secret to better work. It’s short, sweet and funny. Enjoy!
