“Do not allow the distractions of your day, your body, and your thoughts to own you. Step outside of the body and observe it as a vehicle that you instruct, a vehicle that transports you through time and space and documents experience. When you have a thought of someone who has passed into spirit, you are with them. When you hold a thought of disease, you start to become it. When you have a thought of limitation, you are gifted it. Where your thoughts are is where you dwell, it is your creational address. This address then becomes your quantified universe and defined field of light. Redefine who you are to yourself and then it will follow as the day follows the night that you will be re-defined in every cell of your body, and level of your life. Do not be humbled by your own light, for it is grander than you can conceive. That is your Divine Right and your Divine Inheritance. All things belong unto you.” ~Rev. Angela Peregoff
There was a study done recently on goal-setting. 100 people were asked if they had goals for their life and out of that 100, only 10 people said yes that they had goals. After following those 10 goal-making individuals, they found that only 2% of them actually went on to achieve their goals. What was different about that 2%? Why did they go on to achieve their goals but the other 8 did not?
I travel all over the world and have spoken to many different types of audiences. I have facilitated lectures to CEO’s all the way to upcoming female leaders in Gambia, Africa that could not read, write or speak English. One thing I find in common with all of my audiences is that when I ask the question, “Who in here knows what they want? Who has goals for their life?” I get the deer in the headlights look. A few stragglers raise their hands (that 2%), but the others act as if I just asked them a question in Swahili. It still to this day puzzles me as to how any of these individuals make decisions in their life not knowing what they want?
One myth many seem to believe is that life just happens and our job is to respond to life in the appropriate way. That could not be further from the truth. That is like saying you are a pinball in a pinball machine getting knocked around this way and that by life and you just have to take it. I choose to believe something different. I choose to believe that creating our life the way WE want is a God-given right. We are the Michael Angelo’s of our lives…we are the creators.
What is different about that 2% who go on to be creators of their lives?
Starting today, begin to believe you have the right to life; the right to live that life the way YOU want to. Go grab a “paintbrush” and start your masterpiece.
