I was reading a great book this week in which the phrase “Inverted Paranoid” was mentioned. I had to stop and think about this for a minute, only to conclude that this is exactly what I need to add to my personal list of desired characteristics. I want to consistently be the kind of person that feels the world, the universe, everyone and everything I come in contact with, is CONSPIRING for my HAPPINESS.
We have become a very skeptical culture. It is easier for us to see the glass half empty and to walk about in fear that no one has our best interest at heart. We shut down our hearts and by so doing, our opportunities and possibilities because of this life perspective. When we approach life from a consistently negative view point, we reduce our ability to learn and to accept ourselves and others.
I am not asking for you to fly around on a cloud all day and refuse to see changes that need to be made and become a leaf blown by the winds of life. You always will have the power to choose your attitude and thus your life experience that stems from that attitude. So choose wisely.
Here are my suggestions on how to join the IP club.
1) Realize that the World Doesn’t Actually Revolve Around You. Often we become offended, hurt, and shut down to the world because we take people, their words and responses to us way too personally. They are living in their own world and we must live in ours. Be more compassionate to others and to yourself.
2) Play the Opportunity Game. This game is designed to help you build up the strength to see the good around you, one problem at a time. Take a problem, any problem, look for a possible solution and find every reason why that solution could be the best possible solution. Focus on the next possible solution and give it the same amount of time and attention. You are trying to re-train your mind to see the possibilities, to become more open to options never before considered. Looking at life’s problems from the place of “this bump in the road isn’t so bad, look at all the possibilities around me.” will create a more satisfying life. As we focus on the good, all the negative sorta does a disappearing act.
3) Conspire for Others Happiness. Get out and find a way to do good and be the good for another person. You have more influence in spreading goodness than in huddling in the corner or your negativity. Think of all the negative energy that is usually associated with the word CONSPIRE. Flip that 180 degrees and make all that negative become positive conspiracy to bless the lives of others.
Taking life a day at a time and building upon such steps you will soon find that you have joined the club of Inverted Paranoids. Go ahead, spread the word.
