We get what we concentrate upon. But how do we get it? According to Jane Roberts, “You get what you concentrate upon.” That is, if you concentrate upon success, you will get success. If you concentrate upon hate, you will get hate. If you concentrate upon your life, you will get your life.
But what if we concentrate upon the wrong thing? What do we do to protect ourselves? What do we do to protect our minds?
Because of your intense concentration, be careful not to miss the wonder that is happening around you. Wonder is happening around you. Pay attention to it. Pay attention to love. Pay attention to happiness. Pay attention to other people. Above all, pay attention to yourself. But if you don’t concentrate on the right thing, you miss it.
If you want love to dominate your life, concentrate on love thoughts. If you want happiness to dominate your life, concentrate on happiness thoughts. You can find happiness right where you are just by paying attention. You can find love right where you are just by paying attention. Whatever you want in your life, pay attention to it.
But if you don’t pay attention to love, you miss love. And if you don’t pay attention to happiness, you miss happiness. And if you don’t pay attention to yourself, you miss yourself. What are you concentrating upon?
I can’t fix you. Only you can fix yourself. Do not wait for somebody to come and fix you.
One way to fix yourself is to know what to stop doing. If what you are doing is not helping you, stop it.
“You are responsible for fixing yourself.”
Fixing yourself is not about changing your body shape; it is about changing your mindset. It is about how you see yourself, your life, your work. Rupi Kaur writes, “If you are not enough for yourself, you will never be enough for someone else.” You are good enough for yourself. You are good enough for your family. And you are good enough for the world. Because you are you.
You can’t fix yourself without first fixing your mind. Because everything happens in your mind.
If you take care of your mind, your body will take care of itself. Fixing is about your mind, not about your body. Your body has nothing to do with it.
“You are responsible for saving yourself.”
Fixing your life is about acceptance. It is about accepting who you are. It is not about beating yourself up. It is not about rejecting yourself. It is not about rejecting your life. It is about loving yourself. It is about loving your life.
Do not wait for people to fix you. Fix yourself. Because you are responsible for your life. According to Oprah Winfrey, “You are responsible for your life- and when you get that, everything changes. … So don’t wait for somebody else to fix you, to save you or complete you.” No one can do that. Only you have the power to fix yourself. Why not go ahead and do it?
