Happy Tuesday! I hope that you had an ultimate Monday!
Let’s review a couple vital pieces before we continue with A5, okay?
- Your life is meant to be ultimate.
- It’s up to you to determine what you need and what you want in your life and as your life in order for you to declare that it is “ultimate.”
- By living with gratitude, you WILL create your ultimate life!
Yesterday, I introduced you to A5 (which is derived from The Bergstrom Method) and its first “fifth” – Accept.
“In order to create my ultimate life, I accept that I must first activate my Center of Gratitude. Because I am centered in gratitude, I think wonderful thoughts and feel wonderful feelings. My wonderful thoughts, paired with my wonderful feelings are creating my ultimate life.”
If you can accept this, you can create your ultimate life. Your life circumstances as you see them right now are the results of what you have thought and what you have felt.
Today, I am giving you the second “fifth” to the formula which is: Adjust.
Once we accept something into our conscious thinking, we are admitting that it is a real thing and that it is happening.
When acceptance occurs, adjustment begins.
This is why it is so imperative to accept the fact that your thoughts and feelings are creating the life you are living.
To accept this means that you are accepting the responsibility of conscious control of the outcome of your life. With acceptance comes adjustment, so get ready to make some decisions!
The primary adjustment that comes with acceptance is the decision to think consciously.
Conscious thought differs from subconscious thought because it pertains to the thoughts you literally hear yourself think. These are the thoughts that you are totally tuned into, totally paying attention to and totally feeling. Most of us are unaware that the thoughts and feelings we experience begin on the subconscious level and through our feelings, make their way to the prefrontal cortex.
If we can recognize what we are thinking and feeling, we will be able to easily realize when we are both in and out of alignment with what we have decided we want. Because we are consciously thinking, we can consciously choose to adjust how and what we are thinking and feeling.
Living ultimately is to always create from your Center of Gratitude. If you experienced unkind thoughts earlier today about someone else or had thoughts of dread and misery, you experienced life results that are aligned with what you were thinking about some time prior. The life results you experienced were not in alignment with what you have expressed that you truly want, which is to live ultimately.
By consciously thinking, we can identify and recognize that we experienced the given circumstances because of what we thought and how we felt. By consciously thinking, we are empowered to adjust what we are thinking and how we are feeling to be in better alignment with our ultimate goal.
Adjusting our thoughts is just as important as accepting responsibility for creating your life. What’s the point of accepting responsibility for creating your life if you don’t identify and make the necessary adjustments to achieve your ultimate life?
Accept. Adjust. And the third “fifth” is released tomorrow!
Stick with me and stick with A5!
By the weekend, you’ll have a specific guide to creating your ultimate life with gratitude. It is going to become so evident to you that when you implement these five “fifths” you’ll create your WHOLE, ultimate life!
See you tomorrow!
The time for happiness is NOW.
The time for joy is ALWAYS.
The time for you to create your ultimate life, has come. Join me! We’ll do it TOGETHER!
