How to Change Your Life: Telling a Better Story Creates a Better Future

We can make up our story to be anything that we want.

We alone are responsible for our successes and failures as well as healing ourselves or making ourselves sick. You alone can change your life as no one else has any power over the sovereignty of our bodies, minds, and emotions. And with this in mind, it stands to reason that we are exclusively responsible for the quality and the content of our life circumstances.

We are actively creating results/conditions into our lives at all times through our thoughts and actions, and this is the way it’s always been. It’s the creator’s gift to us, the gift of free will to manifest our lives as we IMAGINE them in our minds! And because the universal laws of creation are fixed, it can never be any other way….

“Logic will get you from A to B, imagination will take you everywhere.” – Albert Einstein

The law of vibration, (popularized as The Law of Attraction) is operating always and everywhere. The law is invariable so that what we receive into our lives, whether good or bad, is a RESULT of a definite CAUSE (our vibration.) When our vibration is low, we receive conditions that match, and as our vibrations rise, we get rewarded with conditions, events, and circumstances in our lives that match our ‘improved’ feelings.

The question then needs to be asked, how many of us know for certain that we are the absolute creator of our reality, and how many of us are using this knowledge to our advantage to create extraordinary lives for ourselves?

What role do other people play in creating our lives?

It’s not our job to worry about others, just as it is not their job to worry about us. Sure, we have certain obligations when we are part of a family, sports, social, and workgroups, and we all want the best outcomes for ourselves and others. But unless they are young and under our care, other people’s lives are not our responsibility, just as our life is not theirs.

Therefore, it’s a complete waste of time to expect others to sort out our problems for us. For, while others can provide ideas and resources that are beneficial for us in our desires to change, they cannot effectively climb into our minds and change our inner programs, or stories, the ones that are responsible for making up the lives we are currently living.

There are people out there living life waging war, eating themselves into sickness, adrenalin junkies, couch potatoes, and having all sorts of other experiences that we may consider wrong, just as they may consider our choices wrong….. Don’t worry about it!

Maybe they are more alive than they have ever been before? We should just let them live out the experience that they have manifested for themselves and put our focus in the only place that it belongs, on our own experience…. because the universal laws dictate that this is the only place when we have any ability to affect change!

Learing better way of thinking will change your lifeHowever, by exposing ourselves to the vibrations (ideas, beliefs, and actions) of people who ‘have got their act together’ we can learn better ways of thinking and interacting within our environment. And because of their example, we can see that there are different and betters ways of living. We can then begin to incorporate the best aspects of all that we see into our lives by using our imaginations. And this is the way to create effective change, and therefore, better realities for ourselves.

OUR lives are a RESULT of the stories WE consistently tell OURSELVES.

How much time do you spend each day watching mainstream-media programs, tuned into social media, and being educated by a system to help you ‘fit in’ to the current reality?

In this system we are constantly being exposed to war, mass shootings, terrorist attacks, distrust, drama, and many other gross and inhuman scenarios….. all of which keep us in states of stress, fear, anxiety, and a feeling of hopelessness. We are being programmed to believe that constant problems are happening all around us all the time. We are led to believe that we are small by comparison to the enormity of it all, and therefore powerless to effectively change our world.

This programming/conditioning has, for the majority of us, become our story…… It’s only normal and natural that what we expose ourselves to daily imprints itself into our subconscious minds. And once these ideas become part of our mind programs this information/beliefs continue to repeat throughout our lives and therefore also become part of our probable future.

Our minds are capable of manifesting a NEW and BETTER reality

Our minds are very powerful. They produce the content and circumstances of our lives through the information that they already contain and believe to be true. And herein lies a big problem for those of us who wish to change our lives. Our minds cannot direct us to create a life for ourselves that we know nothing about.

So instead by default, we just get more of the same stuff in our lives that we already know about and continue to expose ourselves to. This includes all the violence, hate, and fear-mongering on the nightly news, the fake comparisons on social media, as well as the good stuff that we want more of.

If we continue to focus on the lack and shortage of our present reality, we will continue to get more of it even if we desire abundance…. We cannot have it both ways!

We cannot focus on the unwanted stuff in our lives and expect to receive anything different.

Thoughts around money, relationships, and health that make us uncomfortable and stressed will just prolong our existing circumstances.

conflicting thoughts create mixed vibrationsBecause of this, we can never improve ourselves and our circumstances by doing the same things we have been doing in the past that have got us to where we are now. Doing the same stuff, and doing the same stuff as everyone else is doing, is just going to continue things pretty much as they are….. because THE POWER THAT IS CREATING OUR REALITY IS OUR THOUGHTS, (ours alone, nobody else’s) and our thoughts lead to our actions and the results we receive.

If we want to change our lives for the better, a really good way to start is by turning off the Main-stream-media which is just programming our mind for stress, fear, and powerlessness. And the reality is that WE ARE SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT!

Our current reality is a choice we accepted by default, not realizing that there are better choices available.

We can only ever experience reality as our senses reveal it to us….. and this means what we understand and believe to be real is only a very small proportion of all that exists. To help get this point across:

  • Do you imagine that your reality is the same as a dog whose sense of smell and hearing is 100’s of times better than ours?
  • Bats and dolphins use sonar location to ‘see’ and experience their world at night and in murky waters, worlds that are unfamiliar to our normal senses.
  • If you were born on a tropical island where food is plentiful and free would you view the world the same as someone abandoned as a child to seek out a living in a rubbish dump in a poor country?
  • If you were raised a strict catholic, an orthodox Jew, a Muslim, or a Buddhist, would you have the same opinions regarding the events happening in the world?
Improve your life now by learning something new!It becomes obvious that while we are living in the same world, the way we view the world and our subsequent lives are very different and very diverse. However, we tend to become conditioned by the specific environments we are raised in so that we can fit into the existing cultural norms and therefore continue the existing status–quo.

And if you remain with the same people, doing the same things, listening to the same programming mediums, your life will continue in a very predictable way…… pretty much the same as it is now. However, it does not need to be this way!

We have to tell ourselves a different story to get different results. We CAN program ourselves for success, love, joy, and fulfilling lives!

We’ve all been taught about, or read stories about great individuals throughout history, the ones who achieved remarkable things.

What was it about them that enabled them to achieve so much more than others?

They were unwaveringly committed to creating a future for themselves without any need for immediate feedback from the existing environment. In other words, they were dreamers who “IMAGINED” a better future for themselves (and maybe all humanity) and as such, their minds were AHEAD of their present reality…….Because of their future-focused thinking, they were not being controlled by the current consensus reality. In a sense, we could say that they were ‘well ahead of their time!’

“You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.” – Marcus Aurelius

I’m not suggesting that we all set out to change the world, although if that is your goal, go for it! What I am suggesting is that WE ALL HAVE IT WITHIN US TO CHANGE OUR OWN LIVES TO MAKE THEM BETTER AND BETTER WITH EACH PASSING DAY!

This requires that WE change…. We need to change the information that we are exposing ourselves to so that we can begin to have better quality thoughts that lead to better feelings. Because, there is nothing more important than the way we feel…. as it is our feelings that are emitting our vibration which is our attracting the circumstances, people, and events, back into our lives.

Our life is our choice!Our past is over, it’s happened, both the good and bad. If we were wise, we learned from it and then let it go. Our past can only affect us now when we choose to remember it, for when we are not remembering it, it doesn’t exist in our minds at this moment. It’s old news, and if it wasn’t so good, why would we want to keep remembering it…. especially now we understand that remembering it will allow those negative feelings to continue into our future.

Let’s instead use our incredible mental energy to create an amazing future for ourselves. By looking forward, we will discover that hope and opportunities are abundant and everywhere, that there is so much fun and love in the world, and that good people abound and are waiting for us to join with them in their success and joy.

So, where do I go from here?

It’s not our job to go out and try to force things to happen the way we want them to happen. Our only work is to IMAGINE that which we want with all of our attention. We need to visualize our desired outcomes until they become set in our minds and then we will begin vibrating in harmony with the objects of our desires. Then and only then can The Law of Attraction make our desires our reality.

So, what new future do you wish to create for yourself in regard to your body, your health, your finances, your relationships, and all other subjects that have been troubling you? The more we begin to focus positively upon that which we desire in all aspects of our lives, the more positive energy we will accumulate. And then our vibrations rise and our lives begin to transform.

However, it’s important that we don’t get too caught up in the specific details. i.e. if you are not currently in a relationship and want to be in one, don’t specify a specific person as the object of your attention. Why? Although you may think they are perfect for you and have all the qualities you desire in a partner, you have to remember that you are only seeing a very few pieces of the whole puzzle. They may not even be attracted to you!

Instead, it’s better to focus on the essence of what you want, i.e. how you will feel when your ideal relationship is realized.

By doing this, you are trusting that the infinite creative intelligence that manifests all things, will deliver to you exactly what it is you are asking for. You will attract to you an exact match based on what you are vibrating, and not based on what you think you want without knowing all the facts and details.

We can all learn how to create amazing livesSo now it becomes our job to begin asking ourselves “how would I feel if my wish for……(everything) was already realized?” and then hold onto the vision of the desired outcomes.

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”-
Albert Einstein

This is the key to receiving. Our feelings are vibrations, the messages we are sending to the creative energy of the universe, which will attract the equivalent back to us.

As we sow, so shall we reap!

I hope you all receive the lives that you desire…. I know you will if you place your focused attention upon it! And remember….. Enjoy the journey…….

With much love and respect to all souls playing the game of life,

  1. Hi Andrew,
    Wow! Happiness is so important nowadays and the most important thing is mental peace.

    These days that we are going through are so harsh that keeping calm and peaceful is becoming more and more difficult. But your blog is so good and I think it is very important for us to be happy independent of the situation or the people involved.

    I will definitely share this because your writing is so easy to understand, meaningful, and so helpful for anyone wanting to be happy. Your article is so uplifting. I enjoyed every bit of it. Thank you for such a great post. Keep up the good work.


    1. Hi Samantha.
      Many thanks for taking the time to read and comment on my article. I am happy that you found it beneficial.

      Times are tough for many people at the moment, especially with the prolonged lockdowns that are happening in some parts of the world. The stress of being locked in confined spaces with other people twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, does take its toll on us mentally, emotionally, and physically.

      However, things will not always be like this… everything changes, and it is we who need to create the vision of a better life for ourselves before it can begin to unfold and become our reality. Everything that we do and achieve first begins with our thoughts. We can create fear, doubt, pain, and uncertainty just as easily as we can create peace, love, compassion, tolerance, and success. So it’s important to always be aware of what our thoughts are. Are we watching too much TV where we are being conditioned with fear and intolerance, or are we creating an atmosphere around us of peace, health, and love?
      Thoughts are vibrations, and they attract matching conditions to them……. think about what you are attracting into your lives….. and make a really great life for yourself!

      I wish you and everyone else all the best,

  2. Wow, Andrew, You speak out of my heart!

    I have a pitfall that follows me my whole life, namely wanting to help others have a healthier life. Still, it is not working because people have their responsibilities and are not open to suggestions. They will only complain, nothing more. As a nurse, it frustrates me, caring for them, but they are not willing to change. They eat up the energy.

    I believe in God, and the bible is full of positive statements; I believe in very much. We are the creator of our world, most times fear-driven. As children of world war 2nd, my parents were suffering fear all their life, which is very difficult to live with. I don’t say anything in my family anymore because they directly try to destroy my ideas, leaving me frustrated. But I know about imagination our world, and this is the only way for me. I don’t want to be captured by fear and negative thoughts. Your site is fantastic; I am happy I came across your site.
    Thank you very much for your article! 🙂

    1. Hi Sylvia.
      I know what you mean about trying to help others. I too used to let my family and friends know about the ‘new great ideas’ I was discovering on my journey of self-growth…. ideas that I believed that if they implemented, would really help to improve their lives! I soon learned that they were not interested and would rather continue on as they have been doing. I found this confusing and frustrating, to say the least.
      But now I understand that we are all on our own journey, we all do things in our own time, and what I consider to be good has little relevance on how other people may think. I’m happy to let others live their own lives as they please now, and this realization makes my life easier as well because I understand that other people are not my responsibility!

      Growing up surrounded by conflict and in fear much of the time is a very difficult situation and is bound to leave scars for generations to come. However, as you suggest, choosing to be captured and imprisoned by fear and negativity is a choice. WE CAN ALL CHOOSE TO THINK A ‘BETTER FEELING THOUGHT’ AT ALL TIMES. We can only ever live in the present moment, but many people continue to let thoughts of an unpleasant past destroy their present.

      Becoming conscious of how we feel at all times is the key to recognizing what type of thoughts have been playing in our minds. If we are not feeling good, it makes sense to change the quality of our thoughts so we can immediately begin to feel better….. because nothing is more important for our health and wellbeing than the way we are feeling!

      Many thanks for sharing with us. Have a great day,

  3. I enjoyed this rather uplifting article. Here is a quotation from the article which resonates with me:

    “We need to visualize our desired outcomes.” This is FAITH. We can’t see it, but we picture it and you know what? We work to achieve it. We create our story. How beautiful!

    We will indeed reap that which we sow. Continued success in creating your story.

    1. Hi Josephine 🙂

      Yes, I agree that visualizing our desired outcomes is faith.
      All too often our focus and attention are on stuff that other people have/are creating. And this focus by us just makes us part of their story. I’m pretty sure that if people were more aware of the outcomes and circumstances that their focus is creating, that they would part more attention to what it is that they actually want in their life stories as opposed to what they don’t want to experience.

      I wish you a happy and fun-filled life experience, Josephine. Enjoy, enjoy, and enjoy some more!
      With much respect,

  4. Enjoy the journey is right! We have one life to live and we have to do everything we can to make the most of each day. Great uplifting article here. Nicely done!

    1. Cheers mate. I appreciate you taking the time to read my article.

      One life, and so many choices and so many different ways to have fun……. What a great life it can be…..
      Have a great day, week, year, and life mate,

  5. Ohh, Andrew, you quoted my favorite one of Einstein!! It is my “Leitmotiv” ever since I saw it the first time. At the beginning as an expression of my creative work as a graphic designer and artist. Later as an expression and motto in my process of self-development. 🙂

    I love this article! As most of your articles but you know how it is, some always stand out.

    And something else I want to tell you: you had an article the other day about waves. It was the first time I heard about something like that. But I have a new meditation app on my phone which has all different kinds of meditations and some of them are with specific waves. I am still very unfamiliar with it all, but it’s a really interesting area! So thanks for the inspiration then, and thanks for the inspiration now. 🙂

    1. Hi Hannie 🙂

      I must confess that I had to look up “Leitmotiv” as I thought you were adding a Dutch word to the comment. I was surprised to learn that it is an English word, derived from German, and the meaning is quite obvious when broken down: Leit- leading and motiv- motive. (thanks for the continuing education :-))

      What I love about Einstein is that we are told that he was one of the greatest scientists that ever lived, and with this, the majority of people imagine that he worked studiously to come up with his theories and paradigm-changing ideas. However, at heart, he was the biggest dreamer in the world! He used his imagination and ‘allowed’ information and ideas to flow to him, hence the “imagination will get you everywhere…..” quote.

      When you mention waves, do you specifically mean brain-wave altering waves like Binaural beats and iso-tones Because everything is energy in motion or vibrational waves. However, some of the sound waves are able to beneficially alter our brain wave states to produce meditative states, periods of intense concentration, pain relief, deep sleep, etc. So what are you listening to now, and what effect are the sounds having on you now?

      I think it will be very easy for your creative mind to slip easily into different brainwave states….. just make sure that the states you slip into are ones that you desire for yourself. i.e. don’t listen to any death-metal music haha (I’m sure you won’t! 🙂
      If you want more and different sounds, let me know what you want and I’ll find some interesting stuff for you 🙂

      Have a great day 🙂
