Tony Robbins teaches ‘Nothing in life has any meaning except the meaning you give it.’ On the surface this seems so simple, and it is. However, it’s not always easy to truly accept.
For a moment think about this… everything in the world has no happiness, joy, misery or envy! This might seem a strange statement, however this is because all emotions and meanings are what WE project onto a situation.
As difficult as this concept may be to grasp, the understanding of it is critical to live a life of true happiness and self-control. It takes discipline and mental strength to understand that nothing has meaning except for the meaning you give it. Ok, we are all influenced by the society we live in, and it is easy to feel the way we believe a situation should make us feel.
Once you accept this as true, it will mean that you will be in control of your thoughts, and your thoughts will dictate your feelings. All meaning and emotion comes from our ‘inner world’, the world of beliefs, thoughts and feelings. As the saying goes ‘ happiness is an inside job’.
Our ‘outer world’ is the world of situations, experiences and material items. It is very easy to be caught up in how other people act and feel, especially in highly emotive national or worldwide events, like Covid-19.
We would all be happier and more fulfilled in life if we focused on what we could do, instead of what we can’t do. Also remembering that how we see the world is a direct reflection of the meaning we give it.
It is your inner world that creates meaning for your outer world. When you come to master this you will be in complete control of your own experiences, results and destiny.
