Because This Is Your Life

When you think of the word “revolution” what comes to mind?

Perhaps thoughts of a war, groups of rebellious people, change of some kind, and even the Beatles song.

What may not come to mind are two words (truth , evolution) that play a vital part in how your life turns out.

Before talking about these two words let’s come back to the Beatles and one of the themes in that song…change.

Because the “change” spoken about in that song is not true on one hand but entirely true on the other.

The “change” that’s not true is the notion that you can change the world. How do you know this to be true? Because it’s a known fact that you (a person) can’t change someone else, and since people make up the world how can you change the world?

Obviously you can’t…no one can.

However…

You can produce “change” in the way that is spoken about by the Beatles…and this part is true.

This now brings us back to those two words I alluded to earlier…

“Truth” and “Evolution”

…because they have everything to do with the path your life goes down, along with the word “revolution” I spoke about earlier.

And strange as it seems these revolutions are a vital part of your life.

So the question is…

“What are the revolutions in your life”

…and what do they have to do with “truth” and “evolution?”

1. Revolution evolution- I’m sure you’ve heard the saying that sometimes life is like a roller coaster because it has its many turning twists along with its ups and downs. This is true but there’s a certain way to approach it.

Most people feel that these ups and downs involve the roller coaster of emotions…and they’ll live that way but those types of ups and downs usually end up being extremes.

This is not healthy.

What is healthy is to know you’ll have those “up” moments and “down” moments but that there’s two sides to each.

This is how the revolutions you experience guides you to the evolutions in your life.

And with it comes the greatest gift you’ll ever get in life.

Before I get to that let’s come back to what is said in the Beatles song…change.

Like you read earlier you can’t change the world. In the song “We all want to change the world” is said. That can’t happen either.

However…

As Gandhi said, “Be the change you seek in the world.” This can and does happen.

How?

By knowing how to navigate your way through those revolutions in your life that leads to the evolutions you experience…because this leads to that greatest gift of life I mentioned earlier.

Now you may be thinking, “What are these revolutions in my life and what does evolution have to do with it?”

First, just know that the revolutions in your life are those seemingly “bad”, “unwanted”, “tumultuous”, so called “negative” moments. You know, the ones most people want to avoid.

Yet…

They are healthy and needed because there are hidden blessing in them that all lead to the greatest gift of life.

This was the case in my life as it is in your life as well.

For me it was the so called “failed” business opportunity that took place in 2006…when I entered a business partnership with a person who had a fitness training gym.

I gave this person $30,000 and then within two weeks backed out…but I never got my money back. Before it was said and done it cost me over $50,000. This was a major revolution in my life.

What came out of it?

An evolution…

And this evolution is what has brought my life full circle because it has led to what I do today as a human potential specialist.

It also brought out the truth in a variety of ways…that is part of the greatest gift of life.

And the same is true for you. The only difference are the revolutions you experience in your life. And remember that these are ok to go through…they’re healthy once you know how to navigate through them.

Let’s take a look at that now.

2. Everything will be alright- There’s another quote worth mentioning because it is involved continuously throughout your life…

“Nothing good ever lasts and nothing bad ever lasts.”

And in the middle of this is how you navigate your way through what may seem like unending revolutions in your life.

The way you do this is by seeing all events as being two-sided.

What this means is that every situation…every event in your life has an equal amount of benefits and drawbacks. You can also look at these as having an equal amount of “positive” and “negative” as well.

There’s no escaping this…

And those who try by thinking they’ll get more happiness than sadness, more people being kind than cruel, more people giving than taking, and striving for more peace than turmoil, will not only end up increasing the probability of feeling depressed…

But will also never experience the truth along with the evolution that leads to the greatest gift of all.

As you already know and have seen during your life—and this goes back to the quote I just mentioned—the “good” things you’ve experienced didn’t last forever and the same can be said about the so called “bad” things.

Why is this important?

Because when you know that the “good” things won’t last, you’ll be less likely to take them for granted and make each moment matter.

And it works the other way too…

When you know that the “bad” things won’t last, you’ll see the “light at the end of the tunnel” so to speak. You’ll know that a new beginning will take place. You’ll feel more at ease know that what you’ve gone through is leading to what you’ve always wanted.

It may not seem like it at the moment…but it’s there as long as you approach your life in a two-sided manner…which is how the Universe has and always will function.

Remember…

No matter what is going on in your life right now…everything will be alright. It all serves a purpose and leads to the evolution of the truth…one of which is the greatest gift of all.

3. Taking it to the other side- There’s something bizarre that takes place during the evolution of the truth, that just so happens to be at the center of the greatest gift of all in life. First, what is this gift?

It’s the fact that as a result of these revolutions you get the evolution of the truth…the truth of who you are, why you’re here, and what makes you the unique person you are.

This in turn guides you to shine in the world and be seen as someone who matters…so you’re respected, appreciated, and recognized for who you are and all you do.

At first and especially during those moments of revolution this may seem like the last thing you’d think of…

Yet, it’s true.

You see, it’s those challenging moments—the events of your life that “tests” you…it’s those people that “push your buttons”…those situations that make you want to give up and quit—that make you stand up for who you are and what you truly believe in.

It puts you in those situations that in a sense forces to make a decision…”Do I quit or do I push through it because it’s that important to me.”

And as you already know these “revolutions” happen with your finances, your relationships, your careers, the different people you meet, and even with you as a person.

This now brings up that bizarre part I mentioned a few minutes ago…

The confrontation of truth.

And more specifically, the truth of who you  are and why you’re here…which as you now know is the greatest gift of all.

Because during those revolutions that leads to these new evolutions of truth comes the scary part I mentioned before…confronting who you are.

Far too many people are living their lives according to what someone said they “have to”, are “supposed to”, and “got to” be doing…

Instead of living their lives according to what they “love” to do, are “inspired” to do, and “choose” to do.

As a result they find themselves limping instead of dancing their way through life.

Ironically…

It’s those revolutions that actually condition you to ultimately be able to dance your way through life, as long as you know how to navigate through them. And you do know…by approaching your life the way it is designed to work…from a two-sided perspective.

And it’s this that brings you to the “other side”…which are the evolutions that lead to the truth of life…of you, of other people, and of why things happen the way they do.

Remember…

With every revolution comes a new evolution of truth. And it’s these truths that also guide you to discovering how special of a person you are.

They’re like your guardian angel who gets you see what it is about you that brings value to the world…and in a way that brings out the magnificence and brilliance of who you are.
