"I am grateful for all of my problems. After each one was overcome, I became stronger and more able to meet those that were still to come. I grew in all my difficulties."
I received this mind-engaging note from Bob Proctor and I thought to share it with you. I hope it engages you as well...enjoy!
Have you ever wondered how children can sit through replays of their favorite Lion King or Little Mermaid video? It amazes me that they'll watch the same show every day without a single complaint or request for something new.
What's more amazing, though, is that adults do the very same thing with their days. The majority of men and women play "movies" in their heads, day after day, relentlessly focusing on past events, most of which are unpleasant and disturbing experiences. If they're actually able to stop their contemplation of past events, then they allow impressions of their current surroundings and recent results to govern their thoughts. If they contemplate the future it is usually by worrying about it, or wishing that something better might come along. Then they wonder why bad things keep happening to them, or why they never rise above the issues and obstacles in their lives.
As I pondered about what to write about myself, I remembered answering this question at an earlier time. Early one morning as I viewed my Facebook news feed for worthy status updates to contribute to, an interesting post by someone who I believe would be a precious friend caught my attention. His question pricked a deep part of my consciousness because it is a question that I had asked myself years earlier: "...Why are you here on this earth? What is your mission on earth? What are you here to achieve?" I instinctively knew that the enquirer is someone of inner greatness and worthy of a noble response.
