Jason Boreyko on Health, Happiness, and Wellness
For Jason Boreyko, a happy, fulfilled, and contented life is achievable. It is within everyone’s grasp. The problem, he says, is not in the “outside world” but rather, within. What he basically means by this is that there is nothing in our external world that we first didn’t conceptualize internally. To put it another way, if we always complain about people taking advantage of us (bosses, colleagues, friends, family, and even strangers), they show up and act that way largely because that is what we expect in our minds. It’s become a belief system of some sort; and it’s how we expect the world to operate.
One of the greatest spiritual teachers of our time, says Jason Boreyko, is the late Dr. Wayne Dyer. And his words resonate strongly to what Jason is trying to explain above. Jason quotes him below;
“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
“Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.”
These two sentences are very powerful, says Jason Boreyko; and they can either inspire you to change your perspective about your external world to manifest positive changes in your life or they can fall on deaf ears, upon which you’ll keep doing what you’re doing yet somehow think that it will bring different results this time.
The hard truth—and one that is a bitter pill to swallow for most—is that we are all responsible for our own happiness and fulfillment. It’s not the job of your spouse, children, bosses, friends, relatives, the guy at the coffee shop, the driver of your cab and anyone else for that matter, to make you happy. In other words, it’s an inside job.
Jason Boreyko invites readers to share their own words of inspiration, as well as tips and insights on how to live a happier, healthier, and more fulfilled life.
