The Secret To Creating Your Reality: The Power Of Your Mind

I have difficult meetings to attend.

Uncomfortable decisions need to be made.

And I'm not looking forward to them.

But why?

Well, because I've already decided that these conversations will be "difficult," the decisions will be "hard," and I've guaranteed that I will feel worse before, during, and certainly afterward.

Wow, the mind is powerful, right? It's already created a reality of dread and difficulty!

But then I'm reminded of what Abraham Lincoln once said, "Whether you think you can or you think you can't you're right!"

Do not underestimate the power of the mind to create what you experience.

So if it can create difficult meetings, it can also create excellent meetings!

I've decided, instead, to treat these conversations as a spiritual practice.

It's an active meditation on the awareness of my thoughts, feelings, words, and actions.

I envision leaving these meetings with everyone feeling satisfied, productive, and at peace.

And if things start to go off track, I can enjoy that too. It is a practice after all, not perfection, and I'll do better next time.


What meeting(s) do you have coming up that you're dreading?

– Maybe a meeting with your boss, colleague, friend, or family member?

If you want to dread it, by all means, do so. Otherwise, if you want to play with the power of your own mind as I have, do this instead:

  1. Close your eyes and take three slow deep breaths.
  2. Imagine meeting with this person or people.
  3. Imagine smiles on their faces, encouraging nods, and shaking hands.
  4. Generate a feeling that you've successfully created a win/win.
  5. Actually feel satisfied. Feel at peace. Feel confident that you can handle WHATEVER comes up with your innate wisdom.

Open your eyes. NOW how do you feel about that meeting? I bet that you're dreading it less. You might even be looking forward to it as I am.

So have a great meeting and tell me how it went. Whatever your experience is, it's 100% worth sharing. When we share our stories, we learn and grow together.
