How many times and how many ways can it be said that you have complete control over your life; in any area of your life? This was recently brought home to me in a very powerful way.

I was sitting at my computer writing this article. My computer clock read 6:00am, but it was light yesterday at this time. How many millions or even billions of people changed their reality on Sunday by simply believing time had actually changed?! Incredible. If we can change time, why can we not change anything else we want?

We can. I tell you again.

* Nothing is real.
* Life has the meaning I give it.
* I am who I say I am and my experience is what I say it is.

Think of your life as an incredible video game that you are playing. Start by concentrating on keeping your character healthy to get the most from the game. That means doing the things within the game to get health points - like exercise. In this game there is also points awarded for gathering rest! Of course there are points given for love as well. And one sure thing about video games is you can always play again no matter what happens!

If we look at people who play video games, some like the game and have fun, some do not like the game and refuse to play. Some come back another time in a different frame of mind and find the game seems different and like it then. Do you see that the game never changes and it is the perception of the person playing the game that makes it seem different?

Haven't we all heard the phrase “Perception is 99% of reality”? So change your perception - change your reality. By doing so you can change reality by changing perception, then reality is not real; it is actually only what you make of it! Make reality whatever you want. Will it be easy? No. Is it doable? Yes. Your choice!

Simply make it a conscious choice.
