Do We Really Create Our Own Reality?
 
If you are reading along with me, you probably have heard or read many times that your thoughts create your reality. The bigger question, which I have wondered about at times, is whether this is true. All we know for sure is that at times it has been true, and at other times, it hasn't.
 
When you think back, today has been sculpted by the thoughts and decisions we have made in the past. Those decisions were influenced by our goals and desires and our beliefs as to what we thought was possible.
 
For example, if you want to become a lawyer, which I did way back then, you have to think about going to law school and taking the courses that will get you in.
 
If you want to become a professional athlete, structuring your life so that you consistently optimize your skill level and level of conditioning, gives you the best chance of succeeding. But as we know there are no guarantees in life; we all have had our share of disappointment.   
 
More significantly, our dreams, our goals and our desires create our experience of reality. They give us direction, give us purpose, and give us a reason for living, even if they don't become actualized. We feel an aliveness that we haven't felt in some time.
 
Even so, we find reasons not to take action, to put what really matters to us, on the back burner. Our resistance has won the day.
 
Yes, at times, the challenges are great and seem daunting, but so are the possibilities.
 
It comes down to what we focus on-the challenges and difficulties or the possibilities and opportunities.
 
Just for today, focus on how amazing life can be, even with the uncertainty all around you.
 
Just for today, embrace this great mystery, this great adventure called LIFE.
 
There is no better time than NOW!  
 
Thank you for being part of the Inspire Possibility Community during these past years, and I hope you will encourage those in your circle to also become part of the Community. If you haven't done so already, become a fan of Inspire Possibility on Facebook.
 
For those of you who live in the SF Bay Area, there will be an opportunity for us to meet in person.
 
I'm excited. The long awaited book signing for The Soul of Uncertainty is Sunday, May 21st, at 4PM. It will be at Book Passage in Corte Madera. Hope some of you can join us.
 
Until then,
Enjoy the Journey
Mark
