Everyone wants a better life, right? I have a key. Part of being human is to develop our potential, achieve our goals and realize our dreams. Yet lots of people seem to search and search, strive and struggle for that perfect life (I was one of them). Well, I’m here to tell you that you can have that life, in all of its fullness, and I have a key—its certainty. Certainty is a key to an engaged life and I’ll share with you how to do it. While this may sound simple, I still want you to try it on, now—you have nothing to lose and a life to gain.
Certainty exercise: Put both feet on the ground, close your eyes, and take a few relaxing breaths, now find a place of certainty in your mind (something you know for sure—like the sun will rise tomorrow), then in that place put your perfect life. It’s that simple. Speak it, see it, and feel it. Goethe spoke about certainty in a poem about commitment.
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elemental truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment that one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!”
Get into that place of certainty, and let me know how your success goes.
