“The way you talk about yourself and your life - your story - has a great deal to do with what shows up in your day-to-day experience. Your thoughts create filters through which you view your life. If you think of yourself as a victim, you filter all that happens to you through the lens of DDT (Dreaded Drama Triangle), and you find plenty of evidence to support that viewpoint. That’s why the orientation you adopt is so important: it exerts a powerful influence on your life direction.”

    Thea, you mentioned an important aspect. How many of us are unable to talk about him-/herself in an adequate way. We are unable to set our qualities on spotlight - or because we are shy or because it seems so natural to us, that we do not even think about it. Therefore often it is much easier to help others than ourself.

    Thank you Solare and Rishiforyou. You're right Solare, most times we do have a much better perspective on other's circumstances than our own. Cheers, Thea

    Thea and Solare, I think part of the reason for that is that we all personal "blind spots" akin to those encountered while driving. We sometimes cannot see these parts of our character/personality/circumstances and we need others to help us out.

    I have to agree with Bill. The only thing I'd like to add is that these issues should be approached from a position of love. Pointing out someone's flaws is delicate work. If you are not careful you could put the person on the defensive. This is counter productive and dose nothing to help the person. It only causes hurtful feeling.

    @Abdeel Marketing - Bill, who decides about flaws? Something you receive from a person might be a flaw for you but not for another one. What does this mean? The reaction of a listener/reader is affected by his experience. A person with another experience, background doesn't even take notice of it. Therefore it is always better to concentrate on what we think positive. This might in the end give us also the chance to understand the 'flaws'.

    Excellent point Solare. That reminds me of an exercise my wife and I worked on a few years ago. Each of you were to make two lists, one of positive attributes and one of negative attributes of your partner. The next exercise was to throw the list of negatives in the trash. As you said, if you focus on the negatives, that is what you will get.

    The world is filled with options, but we seemed to be infected by a type of malaise that creates negativity and threatens our health and creates more mental stess. You hear all the time, I'd like to do it, or I don't have time to do it, or I can't do it! But if your full of conviction and walk with a strong heart full of love and the will to do it, your going to make it. So many people can't get out of the box, when all they need to do is try! lay the negativity by the wayside. If they would, they would notice that there's sunshine, fresh air, and blessings all around.

    That's right Lori. Too often it's because we don't realize we are in a prison of our own making. We repeat these thoughts with emotion such as like you said about not having enough time, money. confidence, skill, etc. The subconscious takes that and attracts more of the same to you and you "prove" it to yourself that you're "right" in thinking that way. You cannot escape a prison if you don't know you're in one.
