I was chatting with James Arthur Ray, of hit movie ‘The Secret‘ fame the other day. When I say chatting – I mean I commented on his blog post and he replied. 🙂
I’ve been reading his latest ‘Do You Love Life or Fantasy‘ series and I recommend you take a look CLICK HERE
If you’re not familiar with James then Google him, but believe me when I say he’s been through the biggest battle of his life recently.
How we ‘think‘ at difficult times is THE KEY to moving through the experience, and coming out the other side more swiftly and with hope for a brighter future.
His posts led me to formulate a process called The 3 ‘A’s:-
- Accept – What is, not more or less, just What IS. How we’re feeling is valid. Accept that.
- Acknowledge – How it got that way – honestly. IE: Take responsibility for whatever part you may have played, and you almost invariably have.
- Ask – Question what all of that means, and ask how you move forwards.
James has his own variation where he adds another two ‘A’s – Act and Adjust.
If you’ve been through a battle recently, or are in the midst of one now – consider these today. And please take a look at James’ blog posts, they’re insightful.
