3 Life Philosophies To Help You Get To Where You Want To Go

Have you ever read something so transforming that it sent shivers down your spine?

It’s as if your body knew before your mind did that you’ve stretched and grown too much to ever see the world in quite the same way.

That’s what encountering the teachings of Abraham-Hicks was like for me.

Today, I want to share with you one small quote that had a massive impact on my life – and three life philosophies inspired by it. Here goes.

“You’re always on your way somewhere. The key is: find a way to be happy wherever you now are on your way to where you really want to be. It does not matter where you are; where you are is shifting constantly – but you must turn your attention to where you want to go. And that’s the difference between making the best of something and making the worst of something.”

– Abraham-Hicks

Philosophy 1: Embrace the Present Moment

Life is busy, and it’s easy to get caught up in quarterly goals or one-year plans, always striving for the next achievement. But here, right now, is exactly where you’re meant to be. Because it’s a stepping stone to where you want to end up. Start asking yourself how you can find joy in the small moments and lessons that are happening right now.

Philosophy 2: Focus on Your North Star

Tony Robbins said it best – energy flows where your attention goes. If you can keep your attention fixed on your true desires and goals, your aspirations will naturally guide your present actions. Another way of thinking about it is, “What can I do today to be kind to myself tomorrow?” My best friend shared this particular phrase with me, and I’ve found it to be one of the easiest ways to practice the art of intentional living.

Philosophy 3: Cultivate a Positive Perspective

You can’t control what happens to you – but you can choose to focus on the good or the bad. You have this bunch of neurons in your brain stem called the Reticular Activating System (RAS). It’s like your personal Google, taking in all that’s happening around you and then returning stuff it thinks you’re most interested in.

It’s why you might suddenly notice a bunch of yellow cars on the road after deciding to buy one. The number of yellow cars out there hasn’t magically increased, but your awareness of them has.

So, consciously focusing on the good things in your life will signal the RAS to bring more of that good into your awareness. You can quite literally train your brain to seek positivity.

Bottom line: Life is a dance between where you are and where you’re going. I hope I see your smiling face on the dance floor.
