Much of our lives will be dictated and directed by the ideas we hold to be true, the values we keep, and also the influences we experience. For example, if we are in a negative social atmosphere, friends with people who drink too much and make excuses, odds are we can get into those habits too, never evolving, always being stagnant. It’s important to find a different set of alternative priorities from time to time, or perhaps to update your current ones and adjust them to your current life situation.
As we age we learn and grow, and we discard the bad ideas of the past. That is, this is what you should be doing, despite how difficult it can be. In the following words, we hope to help bolster you with confidence to this end, potentially helping you overcome your prejudices and consider just what values you may wish to live by. We hope that by using the following techniques you can become inspired, break past your own falsely held impressions, and begin to open your mind:
Your Highest Truth
What is your highest truth? Many people suppress theirs, hoping to find something personally restorative in other distracting activities. Perhaps you’d love to start writing a novel but you spend each night in front of the latest Netflix show. Maybe you wish you were kinder to people but feel that putting yourself out there is not wanted, and so fail to do so. You know what your main want is. You’re thinking of it now. Why can’t you take a minor step towards it? Doing so could restore you to health.
Good In The World
Finding what is good in the world and exploring that can help you become much more focused on a possibility, which needs optimistic exposure to get going in the first place. For example, an association for peace and education could potentially help you gain a clearer understanding of the interests and ideals you may wish to hold, and to see just what possibilities of common good can be focused on when you take the time to understand. Too often we fall into pessimism, but it’s these examples that can help us apply ourselves in a more forthright manner.
Withdraw From The Negative
If you find that you are surrounded by people who are defeatist and continually worried about their external environment, you may find this energy being sapped from you. Withdraw from the negative, from judgement, from pessimism, from a lack of action and a lack of care. Even starting to care about something simple is a defiant act, and it can help you become much more textured and positive in your thinking. Even if this starts with looking after yourself well, moving forward can be so much easier and will lessen your dread to a significant degree. This is important for everyone to experience.
With this advice, we hope you can find a more thorough and promising set of internal priorities. It’s never too late to try.
