Have you ever thought about somebody that you haven’t talked to in a while and the next day you get an email or a phone call from them? Or perhaps you read something that really makes you think and then everywhere you turn the same message keeps appearing from the most unlikely sources? What is that, déjà vu all over again as Yogi Berra would say? Is it coincidence or universal guidance? Well, it is what you say it is but I’m pretty sure that you’ve experienced this on multiple occasions in your lifetime.
If you decide that these experiences are coincidental, then they’ll have no positive impact on your life. Ask yourself this question though. What if these experiences are not coincidental and that they’re messages intended for you through universal guidance? What is universal guidance? If you’re person with the spiritual background, perhaps this represents a message from your creator. If you’re not spiritual, perhaps it’s a signal from some other energy source within the universe? Only you can decide the source of these experiences. So what’s the point?
Are you completely alone or does someone or something have your back? The answer to this question will define your emotional state (how you feel). Success in life comes down to one basic skill, emotional state management. When you’re in a good state, you’ll have the highest probability of taking action on the things that you want in life. What would you rather do; be alone on a deserted island with a volleyball named Wilson or with a navy seal? There’s comfort in knowing that you’re not alone and guidance is all around you if you choose to see it that way.
When you feel alone, it’s easy to experience doubt. The emotional state of doubt can be consuming like quicksand. You’ll find yourself asking more and more disempowering questions like; why does this always happen to me? Why do I always get the short end of the stick? If you ask a crappy question then you’ll get a crappy answer. This can become habit-forming crippling your chances of being happy.
If you choose to see these messages as signs along the road to your success, you will become increasingly aware of who you are. You’ll stop asking questions that begin with WHY and start asking questions that begin with HOW CAN I… or WHAT CAN I DO…? Empowering questions produce empowering answers. This eliminates doubt while instilling a state of possibility. An emotional state of possibility will inspire you to take consistent action building a life of happiness and fulfillment.
So are you alone or has something got your back? Coincidence or guided? Your happiness may depend on your answer.
