Are You a Shallow Hal with Yourself?
I liked this movie “Shallow Hal” because it’s actually a really good portrayal of how skewed a lot of us are when we look in the mirror at ourselves and how we sometimes view others.
There is so much more to see in yourself and others than just the surface of those you don’t know. Have you ever noticed when you develop a relationship with someone (friends or love) that you begin to see beauty emanate from within them, and if it’s a solid and equal relationship than that is also what the other person sees in you. If we could only see ourselves through the eyes of someone who views us that way we would probably be able to develop a much healthier relationship with our own personal image and truth.
I believe it all starts with being comfortable and embracing “the real you”, I mean why would you try to be anyone else when you can be yourself? No one can be you better than you can, and when you’re being genuine chances are you’ll have more people interested to be in your company than you would being someone you’re not.
It really does begin with you and how you are viewing yourself and if you are you confident with “the real you” then nothing else can disturb that. Of course, we are the harshest critics of ourselves, but if you can alter that and try to see yourself as those who love you see you than you will develop a strength of character that you had never realized was there.
One of the things I believe very strongly is that our minds are more powerful than we have even tapped. I’ve heard it said that we only use 10% of our minds, 10%! That’s crazy! I’ve also heard that be discounted but regardless of whether the statement is true or not, it’s something worth considering.
So if you entertain that thought for a moment and consider what some of the greatest minds have accomplished, and if they are actually using only 10% of their brain then imagine if you bump that up to even 50 or 60% how much you could change in your world and way of thinking. In books like “The Secret”, and movie/documentary of “What the Bleep do we Know?”, these kinds of thoughts and ideas are welcomed, embraced and explored. If the concept is there I want to explore it, and if I find it to work (which I have) then it’s entirely worth it.
Have you ever wanted something to change so badly that you willed it to change? That’s your mind working at whatever percentage is needed to accomplish what you’ve envisioned. It’s what you feed that grows, make it positive!
Everything we have around us (things, items) all began with a thought, an idea, and then became real. Probably even some of the craziest thoughts or ideas that materialized were discounted from the beginning but because of the belief and persistence of the person that envisioned it, it became real. I believe that no matter what you envision you can create it, your mind is powerful enough to make it happen.
Believe in the strength and power of your mind and your visions and your reality will become what you see. When you are confident, comfortable and accepting with “the real you”, you allow yourself endless possibilities to create the world you desire.
It’s a flow of positive energy that can’t be stopped, it’s an energy that is in alignment with the Law of Attraction and that all things you think about and believe will become that world around you.
