Calming The Chaos With The Law Of Adaptation
"Life never gives you more than you can handle in one day." But what about those days when everything seems to happen at once? You discover that an important document is missing, the car is past due on registration and inspection and the kids need expensive dental work? These are the days when it feels like you can't handle what life is giving you; life isn't playing by the rules.
What can you do when there are more curve balls being thrown at you than you think you can handle in one day? First of all come to the understanding that life is not against you. Life is here to support you in every way, always. It's your perception that needs to change, not life. Every single challenge—I don't use the word "difficulty" when it comes to life's curve balls—is presented to you so you can understand yourself, others and the world on a deeper level. These situations—usually the toughest-- cause you to step up and become more of who you are meant to be.
Something you can do to change your perception is to adopt the universal Law of Adaptation. The Law of Adaptation returns you to a point of power and encourages you to ask, "How can I?" It calls on you to look for resources that will move you forward. It moves you out of inertia and into action. Suddenly you're in charge again!
Where do you need to say, "How can I?" Let go of the old way of handling a challenge and apply the Law of Adaptation to your life. You will be amazed at the how quickly the situation changes and how well you've handled it.
Love To You,
