The Survive & Rebuild Challenge.

Many people today are demonstrating amazing courage in the face of very basic survive and rebuild challenges. Why do some survive, and others just give up? It seems to be something  special in their mental outlook.

What is a “mental outlook?” It’s the mental window we  look out through to view what’s happening in our life.

Dealing With Challenges to Survive and Rebuild

Most of us are facing one challenge or another today. These are NOT easy times. And the stress of hard times can have a powerful effect on our mental outlook: If you feel worried about something, your brain is then wired to give any related event a worried evaluation.

And although our feelings are fleeting, our moods are not. Moods are based on a brain-level accumulation of feelings that have been stored on actual physical neural networks.

So if you are in a worried about your ability to survive and rebuild, you will tend to have anxious feelings. Anxious feelings, in turn, color your evaluations of your options. This is actually brain-based and a negative evaluation of a new event will just further strengthen the anxious feeling. This new negative feeling, in turn, helps maintain your worried mood.

This creates a non-productive vicious cycle that will build strength unless broken. Generally such cycles are best broken by changing your feelings, which will in turn change your mood.

Changing a Non-Productive Mood

How to break up such a cycle? One good way to start is to really FOCUS on finding a solution to just ONE of the problems you face. Do not even try to tackle all of it at once — this can just lead to overwhelm, and even more anxiety.

Once you identify one problem you want to solve, allow yourself to sort through your options and actually pick one possible solution.

Avoid fence sitting. If you feel a afraid of making a mistake, look at it this way:  The sooner you focus and take action, the sooner you will learn from any mistake, and can then take a new corrective action.

Life has its challenges — that IS a given. But obviously you have already survived some challenges to get where you are today — and can likewise rise above your current challenges.

The truth is this: You have the ability to re-create any thought patterns that might be holding you back.

Seize the moment to survive, rebuild, focus, and just go for it.

Manifesting Your Intentions

manifestingManifesting an intention.

Even if you have a flash of genius, that flash simply remains inside your head until it materializes because of an intention.

So the important issue is how it gets materialized. There are efficient ways and inefficient ways. The most efficient way is shown to us by the mind itself, says Chopra.

How to Manifest Your Intentions

Now consider a large intention, such as the intention to go to medical school. Between having this idea in your mind initially and fulfilling it are many steps, and these are not all internal at all: raising tuition money, passing exams, gaining admission, etc.

Yet each of these steps depends upon brain/mind operations being invisibly coordinated. You think, move and act using intention. All events take place in the mind field first and then exhibit their outward manifestation.

You can be detached from how things are going to work out because you have left it to the cosmos. Past success and failure don’t matter since each intention is computed afresh, without regard for old conditioning. You are able to be patient about each step, given that timing is worked out perfectly on another level.

Over the months and years of getting to be a doctor, you remain a silent witness as pieces of the process fall into place. Even as you go through the action, the “doing” of it remains impersonal.

On the ego level you may feel disappointment that event A occurred instead of event B, which you expected, but a deeper level you know that B happened for a better reason.

Your chief responsibility for manifesting was to have the intention in the first place, to remain as sensitive and alert as possible.

The turning points in life arrive as small signals at first… and only amplify when you choose to follow them. So being vigilant about tiny clues is a major part of your individual evolution.
