You don’t need a New Moon and an Eclipse to change

 

 

Today on Social Media I saw an article about there being a New Moon and partial eclipse on the 13th of September 2015 and what times it was going to happen around the world. The article read of how this was going to instigate a huge change in the world and I did set an alarm in my phone to ensure I woke up to see it. But not because I was hoping for it to instigate a change in my life but just because I would like to witness something if possible because I know we can change any moment we choose as many times as we choose.

I won’t take credit for having this feeling because it has only come in to my understanding from the many books I have read and audio’s and videos I have watched and listened to but prior to that change used to terrify me and now I embrace it as one of the certainties in life.

If you story doesn’t work for you Divorce it

Said during a Oprah Masterclass with Tony Robbins

I always hold Louise Hay and Colonel Sanders stories in the forefront of my mind so when I saw this photo above, the other day on social media I instantly saved it.

I have read numerous times that Colonel Sanders idea of his Southern Fried Chicken was rejected over a thousand times before he was accepted (and I am sure that he would have kept going another thousand if his idea wasn’t picked up then) but it stuck with me on the first read and only helped to reaffirm to me on every other read ‘Don’t ever give up’ on your dreams, goals etc.

A few other successful people who we probably just see as successful and not realise that it wasn’t that easy are Walt Disney, turned down 302 times before receiving financing. J K Rowling a single mum turned down by 12 publishing houses and the other day during a Training session when asked what year did ‘Gone with the Wind’ win its Oscar my colleagues looked surprised when I instantly walked to the correct year without hesitation and before anyone in the room even moved because I knew from all the material I keep reading it was dismissed by 38 publishers before taken up.

So if you think you are stuck or you life sucks or you haven’t achieved something you wanted to achieve or you are to old think of Louise or the Colonel. Don’t wait for an Eclipse. Do it now. Do it in your next breath and if you don’t like your story – Divorce it because as Esther/Abraham Hicks says –

 “You can never get it wrong and you can never get it done”

And I dare you to listen to Sam below and not get Goosebumps 🙂
