a) What is your game?
Are you clear on where you are going or are you distorting the reality (self-delusion at some level) in order to avoid taking your rightful place of power and responsibility?

b) Are you reading life “between the lines”?
Are you holding on to the illusion of what is merely superficial because going within and finding yourself is scary? If this is so, what information is hidden within your current life that you haven’t discovered yet and / or is holding you back?

c) Is it time for a new vision of yourself?
If you are no longer the person you used to be and are trying to change or transform yourself into the new you, what are your new skills? What are your new dreams? Who do you want to become?

d) Are you ready to let go…?
Of your outmoded self-image, your limiting self-beliefs? Are you ready to focus on making peace with your past, your traditions, your ancestors, yourself? What are the “hidden benefits” of holding on to your present job? What is blocking you from accepting your awesome power?

If the answer to these four question is yes, it is time to free yourself! The question is how? By upgrading or changing your thinking-patterns to the following attitudes:

1. Shifting your focus from your needs to those of others:
This will help you get out of a self-centred attitude and get in tune with the rest of the world: How can you help others get what they want while in the process getting what you need? How can you share without giving it all away?

2. Live your life now rather than waiting for tomorrow to be happy:
Don’t postpone your present because you don’t know for certain that you have a “tomorrow”! Today is all we have! Do what you must do; say what you must say; create a dream that means something to you!

3. Accept and be grateful for your present position, job, career, place of work:
Then learn to find the gift within it, your “lesson in love”. Work on it and with it in order to transform it; model it into what you want (make each “task” into a “treasure”).

4. Learning to love what you hate will set you free:
Everything that stirs up feelings of discomfort is a mirror of a part of yourself that you haven’t accepted yet, so find your image in the mirror of your present, make peace with it, accept it, re-member it (put it together again) and become whole so that you can move on.

5. Don’t try to avoid all stress:
It is part of the highly complex world we live in. Instead, learn to cope with it by creating boundaries and prioritizing. Do not be so hard on yourself; you don’t have to save the world alone! Replenish your energy through good self-care. Find time to meditate and reconnect with yourself, with your loved ones, with what is important to you. Re-create your life; it is not a luxury but a necessity!

6. Start visualizing your life in terms of what your dreams are:
So that you can create the space and motivation to activate all that is powerful and magical in you. Allow synchronicities, fantastic coincidences and marvellous opportunities to knock at your door: if you TRAP your vision, then there is nowhere to go!
