Would you like to be free of worry?
To breeze through life without stress?
To be able to remain calm and serene no matter what life brings you?
You need 3 Keys and a Keyring:
The first key is wisdom.
The next key is courage.
The third key is acceptance.
Now you always have the three secret keys that will mean you can breeze through life!
How do they work?
Have you heard of the serenity prayer?
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.
It contains these three keys – acceptance, courage and wisdom.
Yep, I borrowed them, but I’ve changed them around a bit! – because they need to be applied in a specific order.
When we encounter a problem and reach into our bag to rummage around for a key, the first key we should feel for is Wisdom.
The wisdom of being aware of the situation and of our feelings.
This wisdom helps us see everything clearly and to understand what we need to do.
After we have applied wisdom and we know what we need to do, we reach for the second key – Courage.
We need courage to get the strength to do what we can do.
When we’ve done what we can do, we reach for the final key; Acceptance.
Acceptance helps us let go and relax.
You can relax because after you’ve applied wisdom to respond how the situation requires, and you’ve used your courage to do what needs to be done and done all you can do, you let go …
… put your keys back in our pocket and stroll down the street with a smile, but before you do that, take a look at your Keyring.
The Keyring – The Final Piece
You will probably find that you are naturally more comfortable with either holding on or letting go.
But in order to use your keys to unlock your happiness you need to be able to do both.
The beauty of this formula is that it includes both parts.
Doing what you can, takes courage – this is taking responsibility – the “holding on” part.
The people that are good at holding on need to learn how to let go, or they’ll get cramp in their fingers!
Accepting – this is the “letting go” part.
The people that are good at letting go need to learn how to hold on, or they’ll end up empty handed!
Don’t worry if you have difficulties holding on or letting go, because “Life” is designed bring us the opportunities to practice the stuff we’re not so good at!
When you’ve mastered the holding on and the letting go you have a heartbeat; holding on, letting go, holding on, letting go …
Don’t Get Discouraged
Human brains are in love with worry, so when you find your worries arising again, just keep applying the 3 Keys until your brain gets the message.
Rinse and repeat!
