This week, Ross and I experienced a great reminder of the power of our thoughts and how life is always working for you.
For the past few weeks, Ross had been thinking he needed to replace the back tyre on Floyd, our motorbike.
It must have been playing on his mind because at the 11th hour before we were due to catch the last ferry from Bruny Island in Tasmania back to Kettering and then drive 90 minutes to where we were staying at New Norfolk, Ross suddenly pulled over and stopped on the side of the road.
“Why are we stopping?” I asked.
“Flat tyre,” he replied.
“Oh dear! What shall we do?”
“I don’t know,” he shrugged.
Quickly, I reminded him that “Life is always working for us”.
It was too late. He went into the un-resourceful Primal State of fight and flight and paced backwards and forwards, angrily asking, “What am I doing to create this?”
It turns out it was his thinking. He wanted a new tyre so the Universe and his goal achieving brain created a situation where we had to get a new tyre.
And life is always working for us; we also enjoyed a complimentary night on the island, courtesy of the NRMA and RACT. Even better, our host provided homemade soup and started a warm log fire for us, not to mention a really comfortable King size bed (Ah! Luxury).
Paul from the RACT fixed the puncture and we were able to get the 6:30am ferry back in time for me to present some online training for a client.
This little situation provided so many great reminders:
- Not to go into the Primal State
- Ask ourselves empowering questions
- The brain is a goal achieving machine
- Life is always working for us
- Our thoughts create things (and situations).
What are you thinking?
What is it you are creating and are your thoughts in alignment with what you want?
Something to think about. (Pun intended.)
