Why we shouldn’t fear Donald Trump
“Thoughts Become Things” is the phrase on the bracelet I wear most work days. I created it for the salespeople I coach to help them control their mindset. The bracelet is a physical reminder of two simple truths:
- Everyone has control over their individual thoughts, whether they choose to use that control or not and…
- You get what you think about whether you want it or not.
Sometimes I describe myself as a student of deliberate creation. In my view that type of student is a person who continually studies their thoughts and works to deliberately use them to bring about the life they want.
Everyone has the ability to do this. I’m bringing it up because scrolling through social media today breaks my heart. The level of despair and fear I saw expressed was incredibly intense and I’d like to be of some help to anyone who may read this.
I did not vote for Donald Trump, and like many people, went through my own emotional roller coaster late into the night. In fact, I was so caught up in this election cycle, I didn’t really sleep last night. This morning, after allowing myself to completely feel those emotions as they ran their course, I was able to reach the only empowering mindset a student of deliberate creation could reach: wishing the new president a successful term.
Underlying the despair many are expressing is the base fear that we can’t handle this. Lately, separately from the election, my mentors have been helping me understand that every one of our fears has at it’s root, the fear that if something were to happen, we couldn’t handle it. History proves that’s not true at all. Think back on your own life and all of the adversity you have faced. You are still here so clearly you were able to handle whatever happened. That means if you trust yourself, no matter what happens with this new administration, you will be able to handle it. If you choose to, you will be able to build a successful life in spite of adversity.
If you were a Clinton supporter, you have countless examples from which to draw on where Hillary doubled down and overcame obstacles. Maybe it’s time she got a break. Maybe it’s time for someone else to carry the torch forward. Maybe it’s time for anyone who believes in her agenda to do more than vote every four years and post a selfie with an “I Voted” sticker. If it helps, get involved in government and work against policies you may not agree with, but don’t do it from a position of fear. Use your own thoughts and your own mind to create in your imagination the type of world in which you would like to live. Then, from that empowering base, look around you and actively seek out the things, however small, that please you and match up with your imagination. This will create patterns of positive emotion and it’s from this place where powerful action can be taken. Basically, I’m describing the very essence of the law of attraction.
We don’t need the government to create the life we desire. We’ve made it this far and can go much farther. Let’s trust ourselves more than we trust our government and think good thoughts – because they become things!
