“You’ve gotta’dance like there’s no one watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
William W. Purkey
Sound simple to you? I hope so because it is.
You, too, can become beyond ordinary. Believe that you’re hot and you will be, don’t be afraid to go after what you want, and most importantly, don’t stop until you get it!
In other words, change your thinking, your outlook, your attitude and expectations for your life by transferring them from the minus to the plus column. Meaning… whatever your circumstances are, figure out a way to make them work for you so you can begin to feel greater and greater optimism about your future. You can modify your expectations for your future any way you wish, you know.
Once you take charge of your life and love yourself, others will love you too!
“Best-selling author Dr. Wayne Dyer insists, “Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.”
For starters, I urge you to master the art of pressing the mental switch, “Not!”, so often and so routinely that it becomes a knee-jerk reaction for you to silence any chattering monkeys within your head that are trying to paralyze you with doubt and fear. And by all means, steer clear of naysayers whom you already know will attempt to discourage you from meeting your goal. I’ve learned to spot them quickly, and so can you.
But it has taken me years to learn that by keeping my deep-down most private personal goals and aspirations to myself—such as finding a loving mate and man of my dreams—then I can’t get talked out of going after who or what I want. You, too, can stay focused on finding and attracting someone wonderful who will love and adore you as you do them.
So let’s work together to stretch your vision for your life. Come join the millions of us who’ve decided we’re not going to sit around just waiting for our arteries to harden. Instead, we’re out there, taking a chance on meeting someone new! I did.
You, too, can find someone lovable who will cherish and appreciate you if you cast enough nets and keep fishing the waters.
It really doesn’t matter whether you’re in your 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, or 90s+ because—and this may come as a great surprise to you–estrogen and testosterone may be driving forces till we’re 100! How could I possibly know that? Because I witnessed it firsthand in skilled nursing facilities and rehabilitation hospitals back in the days when I was a licensed speech pathologist working with recovering stroke patients, those with Parkinson’s Disease, swallowing disorders, etc. Many of my patients remained flirtatious with members of the opposite sex from their wheelchairs. But those of us on staff never thought there was anything strange about it. In fact, we had witnessed it so often that to us it seemed perfectly natural.
Believe me, miraculous matches really do happen, but it helps to take a moment to reverse the end with the beginning by first picturing the final outcome of your desire. In other words, start out by envisioning yourself experiencing the joyous thrill of sharing fun, love, and laughter with the perfect person for you. And think big about the outcome of your future.
To hasten your desired outcome, I suggest you also make a vision board featuring lots of photos of you taped right next to dreamy destination pictures torn from magazines.
Tailor your vision board to your specific tastes, whatever they may be. For example, you might picture yourself enjoying a romantic candle-lit dinner at the restaurant of your choice, packing for a cruise, or laughing while getting splashed in a kayak or canoe. Or even envision yourself stepping off a plane at a glamorous destination, riding horseback, or racing downhill on skis.
It’s important to display your vision board out somewhere so you walk past it many times throughout the day and are reminded of the big changes that you expect to show up in your life.
Remember to think BIG! Then hold these thoughts and fix them in your mind! Put pictures all around you to keep them alive. For as Reverend Robert Schuller so often declared, “Today is yesterday’s tomorrow”!
Change your thinking, change your life. You can master this principle as countless others have and make it work for you. Take the authority over your life. For as one of my radio talk show guests recently insisted, “It’s up to each one of us to get behind the wheel and drive our own bus!” Doesn’t that say it all? Need we add anything further?
Change your thinking, change your life, and you will find love!
