If it’s easy, it’s too good to be true. You have to work hard if you want to make the big bucks. If you’re looking for the easy way, you’re lazy. I know you’ve heard some of these… Maybe you’re the one saying them or maybe they’re a tiny, persistent voice in your head; either way, they are limiting beliefs that wreak havoc with what we all say we’d like to have – which is a life of ease.
Who Said Life has to be Hard Anyway?
If you think back to the first time you took in the concept that easy is not virtuous, it may have been from your parents, your teachers, someone at church – it could have been from any number of people. And most likely you internalized this idea when you were pretty young. It’s also likely that you heard these phrases more than once, and you started to believe that they were true. This is generally the way it happens, but I do not believe we have to feel this way forever. These beliefs don’t have to guide our lives.
I mean, really… Who decided and then told you that life is a series of hard knocks, trials and tough breaks? Who decided that things that are easy aren’t worthwhile or that they are less valuable than things that were come by in a difficult manner? Who decided and then started to preach that easy is no good?
Could it be that Ease is Actually Possible?
And Not Only is it Possible, that It’s also Good?
I am of the belief that EASE IS GOOD. I believe and have found to be true that when something comes to you with ease that you don’t have to wait for the other shoe to drop. You don’t have to wonder what’s wrong with what’s in front of you that flowed effortlessly into your existence. You don’t have to imagine that just because this was easy that something even harder will come next time to balance it out. I have found that life doesn’t work that way… at least not for those of us who choose to believe and expect that life can be filled with ease – and grace and joy.
Life is a gift and gifts come to us unprompted, unscripted and with no attention to anything except our unconditional acceptance of them.
The next time you are thinking something in front of you has to be hard, or is going to require stress and strain on your life, I invite you to create a new thought that goes something like this: I am open to receive what I desire with EASE. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.
Now, that’s Powerful!
