REVolution is POSSIBLE

“Revolution doesn’t have to do with smashing something; it has to do with bringing something forth. If you spend all your time thinking about that which you are attacking, then you are negatively bound to it. You have to find the zeal in yourself and bring that out.”  ~ Joseph Campbell

Six months ago I started a REVolution in my life

instead of a new year’s resolution, i’m starting a new year’s revolution. dream big, be big, believe everything will come true. 2012 you’re the start of a beautiful future.

Putting these words out there, tipped the scales of my life in surprising ways. But, so far everything has come true for me. I continue to believe it will.

Positive thinking won’t get you everywhere, but it is a start. Six years ago I read The Art of Possibility by Rosemund Stone Zander and Benjamin Zander. One of the best things that I took from the book was being able to reframe things that I once thought were negative into things that are more mysterious, looking at them with more wonder. It taught me to look for possibility in everything, instead of assuming the worst.

Sometimes things feel awful and are in fact awful, but if we change our minds and look for the true meaning, instead of dwelling on the negative things – it’s like having a super power. Life changing.

As my REVolution continues, I look for possibility, dreaming big, being big and that everything will come true.

With a tiny bit of practice, it’s easier to focus on the possibility of what could be and what can be than what isn’t, doesn’t work, or is broken. Put your energy in possibility.

A challenge for you – take one thing that happens and reframe it into something positive.

Stop worrying about things you can’t change.  Stand up, ask for what you want and then go get it.

GO!

Let me know how it goes – really I’d love to hear.

What’s in your revolution? What do you want to bring forth? Are you smashing your way through or finding your zeal?

  1. My revolution is about bringing ease instead of drama into my life. I feel like Jim Carrey’s character in Yes Man, saying yes, yes, yes so much that it’s gotten me into trouble. But saying “Yes” has also helped me to see how a well-placed “NO” can make all the difference. I’m bringing forth the courage to follow my intuition. When I hear “NO!!!!” on the inside, to honor that.

  2. Here goes: I am sensitive to chemicals, and have to wear a 3m mask over my face when I go out; sometimes I get sick–for days; and I spend a lot of time in solitude.

    Reframed: Although sensitive to chemicals, I take extra care of myself and live an exceedingly healthy life; I get to eat organic food, enjoy exercising on my treadmill each day, and I am lucky enough to have ample time to study and work on my writing project.
