There are many particular chants, affirmations, thoughts, incantations that I use to energise and empower me throughout the day. But there is one that stands out for me personally that gets me focused not only in the now, but it also takes my mind off the end result and allows me to remain happy and free from worry. The thought is…
No matter the outcome, I am happy now.
Now it’s a pretty simple thought and you can use it for any situation where you are awaiting a decision or a particular outcome. Say for example that you’re waiting for a result of some kind, now this could be anything, it could be the result of a medical test, the outcome of an interview, you could be awaiting a business decision, or an answer from the bank. It could be any number of a thousand things.
Lets take for example you’re waiting for the result of a medical test, for many people, depending on what it is, it could cause a fair amount of worry and anxiety. Lets face it, it’s not a nice feeling when you’re trying to get on with you’re life but you can’t stop thinking about the test results. It’s not a nice feeling and to shift your focus onto something else it not an easy thing to do. It was out of something like this that made me come up with this thought. Of course, naturally, you can’t just think that thought and hope for your worries to go away, it has to be coupled with some sort of distraction, maybe some empowering music, or doing something else you enjoy doing. Put yourself into a good feeling state and say the thought to yourself and believe it. Welcome the challenge, and say “No matter the outcome, I am happy and will remain so.” It has to be said with conviction and belief and when you do you’ll find that a huge weight will be lifted of your shoulders
So if you’re if you’re in a situation we’re you’re precariously running out of nails to bite on, remember the power thought, say it conviction while in a good feeling place, and watch your shoulders return to their upright position.
