7 Ways to Shift and Take Control of Your Life Today by Simon T. Bailey

There comes a point in your life when you realize it’s time to make a move. You wake up suddenly in the wee hours of the morning wondering who is knocking at the door of your heart only to realize that the knocking is coming from inside of you.

For years, you may have been vying to position your business for success, or just to have better relationships where you’re respected, appreciated, and cared for. However, your goal may be evading you, driving you to feel like a failure. If this is how you feel or think, then I invite you to Shift or Be Shifted.

When I discovered this simple truth that I exist at this period in history to do one particular thing—inspire, instill, and infuse hope in other human beings—I stopped attempting to be like everyone else and decided to shift my thinking. I quit trying to find my way by mimicking others, and that’s when I found myself. I had lost me for a moment because I thought I had to say everything just right to make others like me because that’s what the experts said. They were wrong! It’s time to shift!

If you’re ready to take control and lead rather than be led, here are seven tips you should follow.

  1. Stay optimistic and exude positive energy despite the surrounding negativity.

  2. Work on being happy and become known for it.

  3. Remember that there will be those who like you and those who won’t. Don’t waste your time running after the latter. Build yourself to become strong, and they’re bound to come to you.

  4. Become more intuitive and tap into opportunities that are all around you in the matrix.

  5. Operate with tacit knowledge, i.e., do what you do with confidence rather than just doing a task.

  6. Repel inferior energy, especially while you’re building your own, or it will drag you down.

  7. Remember that you may be lonely, but you’re never alone. The quicker you realize this, the less likely it will be for you to succumb to depression and other negative thoughts.

So don’t let the world lead you. Take the steering wheel of your future firmly in your hands, shift into the right gear, and become the brilliant person you were created to be.
