Change Your Attitude
Christy R. Hall
Using the power of food, tapping, hypnosis and Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) to win the war on weight and emotional eating.
The real secret to transforming your life is to wake up and become conscious of the patterns that are currently unconscious and shaping the way you feel. ~Tony Robbins
For most of us, life hasn’t really gone the way we’d hoped. Some of us aren’t pleased with our jobs, our relationships. our bodies. We thought there was going to be magic, rainbows, and unicorns that crapped cupcakes.
Yes, somebody lied to us. And the beautiful life you imagine in your dreams just isn’t the same as the once you see while you’re cleaning toilets, doing laundry, or working your 9-to-5.
But that DOESN’T mean that it’s ALL BAD!!
Now, there are 2 camps when we talk about life + achieving + manifesting our dreams:
- Those who feel like life happens TO them
- Those who feel life happens FOR them
TO people usually see events resulting from “luck” and have little to do with actions, or behaviors or thought patterns.
FOR peeps tend to believe that we should take responsibility for everything that happens to us – both positive and negative.
Typically, I’ve found that people WANT to be in the FOR camp of believers, feeling that they are in control of their lives and their destinies, BUT they get hung up on taking responsibility for all the shittiest moments of their lives.
And I get it, it’s a hard sell. But the point of taking responsibility IS NOT so that you BLAME yourself, or that you feel that it is YOUR FAULT. Rather, by taking ownership of ALL of your outcomes, you have the ONLY opportunity to decide how you want to feel about something. OWNING it takes you OUT of Victim-hood and places you squarely in the driver seat, deciding where to do, and do, and feel next. #nextStopBaddassVille

When it’s YOURS you get to choose what you do with it. Use it? Put it on display? Throw it out? Upcycle it? All up to you.
So sit down and think about one of those things that you feel was out of your control and happened to you.
- What decisions could you have made differently that would have changed the outcome?
- What important (and true) lessons did you learn from the experience that have made you a better person?
- What positive things came from this negative experience? (There ALWAYS are some.)
Shifting your focus AWAY from the negative towards the positive should make you feel better about the negative event. (AND THAT’S GOOD!) Feeling bad about something never makes you feel better. =)
Don’t focus only on negative aspects of your life. Accept both the good and bad. Be proud of the good aspects and be willing to work on the negative ones. By taking ownership of your experiences, and choosing how you feel about them, you will live a happier life.
