“In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision.” – Dalai Lama


Life is constantly changing and shifting, and everyday we are called upon to make decisions that lead to various actions.

In other words, if you are breathing and living, you will find yourself having to make new decisions and take certain actions. This could be as simple as "what am I having for breakfast today?"… you make a choice and take action toward that choice. In fact, not-making a choice and thus having no breakfast is also in itself a decision.

"In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision." – Dalai Lama

The above quote by the Dalai Lama reminds us that we are firmly in control of how the choices we make turn out… that we can make positive choices that lead to positive action by developing a positive vision. Or better still, that the action steps we take become positive simply because they are anchored in a positive vision. 

Should I, or shouldn't I???

So for example, you find yourself at a cross-roads, where you have to make some not-so-easy decisions that will move your life in a different direction.

You know what you want and you know what you need to do for such change to happen. However, the more you think about it and weigh this option versus that option, the more it seems you would rather just let things remain the way they are. Maybe you shouldn't rock the boat, maybe you should continue living (existing actually) in the same mediocrity that screams "this is not me", "this is not where I want to be".

At the same time, this other inner voice is growing louder and louder; it's the higher self that wants and craves change, that desires better, that is seeking to connect with your purpose and the freedom that comes with being the best you.

What choice are you going to make?

Your season for change

Not every season is a season for change, but you will know when the time comes.

Getting to this place of your dreams will require making tough decisions (for change), will involve some risk and the taking of resolute steps toward brighter tomorrows and a more fulfilled you.

Remember the saying "change is hard, but change is good?"

The leader at such a cross-roads (whether in their career path, business venture or personal life), now fully understands Harold Wilson's words, "He who rejects change is the architect of decay. The only human institution which rejects progress is the cemetery"… and knows within themselves that the time is now.

Moving forward

So what you need to do at this point is, develop, internalize and maintain a positive vision for your life.

Come up with firm action steps (that are encapsulated in this beautiful vision of yours) and take the leap (well, if taking a leap sounds scary, then let's just say, "make the move")!

Do not look back.

What will be, will then be…and what will be is that your deepest desires will begin to come to pass, because the steps you are taking (and who are becoming) are fresh universal magnets for success. 

Embracing the season for change creates room for the new to manifest, and lays a foundation for the leader to discover new lands and explore other avenues.

"In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision."

When making a major life-changing move,

1. Minimize questions caused by doubt and focus ONLY on that which is positive. 

2. Do not allow fear to taint  and cloud your vision of better tomorrows.

3. Once your mind is made up for change, change your conversation. Speak of the positive you seek, the success you expect and of all good that you are looking forward to. Leave the negatives behind. After all, the bible advises us in Romans 4:17 to "speak of that which is not, as though it were". 

"In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision."

As your new path opens up, you will be sure to discover many new and exciting opportunities that God has in store for you.

Those who are too afraid of the unknown may never experience the promises on the other side because they played safe, too afraid to take chances; they allowed negative thoughts to hold them back.

With the change your spirit seeks and all the possibilities that your mind sees, embracing your season of change may be a challenge at first, but it allows the leader to grow, progress and branch out in new ways, that will inspire others.

We owe it to our greater selves to live without limits. 

Choose happiness, choose success, choose life.

Cheers to your success!
