For most of us the idea of being powerless over things in our lives is a tough pill to swallow.
But it is evident that we are powerless over far more of our lives than we are comfortable admitting or accepting. We struggle with the concept trying to impose our supposed power into all sorts of situations we likely should not.
We tell ourselves that we are capable, determined, strong willed people, and that we are confident we will succeed by our own might and strength.
“By golly,” we say to ourselves “we will accomplish that which we have set our will towards doing.” We will make the world and others see. We are proud people, “We will not be denied!”
And yet how many times have we been miserably defeated in this misdirected though good intended purpose?
How many times do we find ourselves unable to accomplish even the small things that we have set our greatest will towards doing? How many times are we confronted by circumstances over which our greatest will is of absolutely no use what so ever?
Many of us have found that in truth (when we became thoroughly honest), that we were far more powerless over aspects of our lives than we were comfortable admitting.
People, places, things, circumstances, behaviors, compulsions, addictions, all seemed to be involved to varying degrees in this dilemma.
This is a tough concept. Indeed many of us have been raised with an entirely opposite view of ourselves in regard to this subject. It often terrifies us. But bear with me, keep an open mind, and let’s see if we can’t establish some common ground for thought.
If personal power were not an issue for you, wouldn’t your pursuits of success, wealth, and fulfillment, have been attained by now?
Would you not have already accomplished or be well on your way to attaining most of what you are seeking?
Wouldn’t much of your vision of success (whatever it is) have come into existence by the mere application of your will-power?
Perhaps you have long maintained that you are capable, and know how to best manage your own success and life. That, “absolutely” you have things under control. And, “assuredly” you know what is best.
Or, at the very least you’ll have it all under control shortly; more effort is all that is required.
Many of us declared that we would master all those things that had eluded us in life. We conditioned ourselves to believe it was true no matter what reality was presenting us with in the form of experience. “No problem” we told ourselves. We were certain and self-assured that if we would only try harder, things would fall into place, and we would at last find the answers that had been missing.
Perhaps what we had been missing all along was sufficient power and knowledge to carry it out.
Just maybe, we had neglected to realize it was this power, and the nature of its source, that we had neglected all along.
It might be that if we could find this power first, and harmoniously align ourselves with the source, we could begin to get the results that we had been seeking.
When it comes to success and abundance, just where did your financial and life principles come from anyway?
- Who shaped your ideas about yourself, the world, success, and what is possible in life?
- Who planted the seeds that would sprout and mature into your expectations of life, your relationships, and your future?
- Were these the product of an educational system adequately prepared to groom you for the “real world?”
Was it happy, successful and fulfilled parents, wise with wisdom and expert guidance that helped prepare you for the challenges in life?
Was it your peers or your friends that helped to prepare you for the life you now lead?
Just how successful, wealthy, and abundant were the people whose advice and examples you used to build your own foundation for life?
Were your thoughts and ideas influenced and nurtured by competent hands, or despite all the love and good intention, were you left somewhat handicapped and ill at ease from the process?
These are circumstances over which you and I had little or no control, and yet they continue to influence and color the very world we see, experience, and live day by day.
Without the aid of proper instruction, without tapping into a power greater than yourself for help (a power greater than you have thus far found), your chances of succeeding now are no better than they ever have been.
You simply must find a better way or you will continue on the path that you are already on, struggling to finally master the aspects of success and self, that thus far has eluded you.
Perhaps the revelation that self-power in and of it-self is never enough will sink in.
Once it has, it will free your mind to the possibility that the answer lies outside of self.
