Is your situation greater than your power to change?

The Ultimate Secrets of Total Self-Confidence by Dr. Robert Anthony

“Like it or not, at this moment you are exactly where you want to be. Perhaps you are unhappy. You may have a job you hate, a marriage that is deteriorating, a love relationship that seems to be going downhill, or a family relationship that is unsatisfactory. Your future may look doubtful, but you, and you alone, have chosen, consciously or unconsciously, to allow yourself to be right where you are. The evidence indicates that YOU WOULD RATHER BE IN YOUR PRESENT SITUATION THAN PAY THE PRICE TO CHANGE.

Your spontaneous rebuttal may include such excuses as, “You don't understand”; “My situation is different”; “I'm trapped where I am”; “I want to straighten my life out, but I can't because…” You may be quite sincere in these contentions, but the fact remains that you have permitted your present environment to limit your thinking. By choosing to let a person, circumstance, or condition dictate your happiness, you have given something outside yourself the power to control your life. In effect, you have declared that your situation is greater than the power within you to change it. Your subconscious has brought the negative affirmation you have developed and, as a result, is obediently delivering exactly what you asked for.”

ACTION STEP FOR TODAY:
