I’m talking with you today about How To Flip the Switch to get Happy.
For the next few weeks I’m going to be talking to you about concepts that are in my book, which is all about how to get happy and stay happy. The complete title of my book is The Journey to Happy– How Embracing the Concept that Nothing is wrong can transform your life. Did you hear that last part? How Embracing the Concept that Nothing is wrong can transform your life.
I want to talk to you about a radical way of looking at your life that can shift everything and I say this because it’s shifted everything in my life. It’s the concept of living your life from the standpoint and the knowing that Nothing is Wrong.
Now I’m sure many of you are saying, “How you can say that Debra, that Nothing is Wrong when the world is so messed up? When everything is crazy, I don’t have enough money, I’m overweight, I hate my job…what’s wrong with my life, my marriage is on the rocks, my kids are driving me nuts…?”
I get it, I completely understand because that’s where I was in January of 1999 – everything in my life was not the way I wanted it to be. I was doing work I hated, I was in an unhappy marriage, I was $50,000 in debt, and I was 40 pounds overweight. I was at a real low in my life.
But everything shifted for me when I really got this concept – it changed everything. I went from unhappy to happy, I dropped 40 pounds without diet or exercise, $50,000 dropped out of sky and I went from doing work I hated to doing work I love.
Here’s the key:
We think our unhappiness is caused by outside circumstances: I don’t have enough money, I don’t have enough love, I hate my job, I’m overweight, this person is not doing what I want, I don’t have what I want…
The truth is, our unhappiness doesn’t come from outside circumstances. Our unhappiness comes from our response and our reaction to outside circumstances.
- How we think about it
- How we talk about it
- How we feel about it
We cause ourselves grief, upset, unrest, and dissatisfaction by agonizing over circumstances that we don’t prefer. Our complaining keeps us stuck in the energy of lack and of not having what we want.
If you think you’re fat, you’ll always be fat.
If you think you can’t be rich, you can’t.
If you think you don’t deserve love, it might come, but it won’t stay.
Henry Ford said over 100 years ago, “There are two types of people in the world, those who think they can and those who think they can’t, and they’re both right.”
People who think they can have a different energy about them than people who think they can’t. They’re not consumed by fear, they don’t second guess, they don’t explain, and they don’t complain.
When I was worried about money, it never came. When I hated my body, I could go on every diet in the world and lose weight, but the minute I would even think about eating “regular” food again, I would gain it all back and more, because I thought of myself as fat. When I started loving my body, I dropped 40 pounds in 5 weeks without diet and exercise.
When I felt stuck in my work as an attorney and kept telling myself that there wasn’t anything else I could do, and I didn’t know what I wanted to do, I stayed stuck in that energy for over 5 years.
What you resist persists. It persists because you keep feeding it that negative energy, the energy of “this is bad, this is not okay, this is wrong.”
So what’s the answer? Drop the resistance. If what you resist persists, then stop resisting.
Drop the resistance, Go with the flow.
And the easiest, simplest way that I’ve found to do that is to Decide that Nothing is Wrong.
That’s the thought to flip the switch
When the energy shifts, everything can change and everything you want can flow to you, especially happiness and peace.
I understand that this is a lot to take in. It flies in the face of how most people live their lives, because most people are unhappy and complaining, and telling themselves they can’t have what they want. And as Henry Ford said, they’re right.
And I’m not saying that everything in your life is perfect or that you shouldn’t want more and better. What I AM saying is that the fastest way that I have found to change things is to drop my resistance, drop my judgment, and flip into the energy, and I’ll be talking about lots of different ways to do that over the course of the next few weeks.
I hope this helped even a little, and stay tuned because I’m going to be talking even more deeply about this in the coming weeks. And and if you got value from this video, please like, share the video and subscribe to our channel.
