I have no idea how or why the world has become one superstitious ball of ridiculous jinxing, but it has. For most of my life, I lived in a fictitious world I had created in my head called “the jinx world.” Ever heard of it? Perhaps you too have visited this awful place. Maybe you are still renting a space there.
So many people go around believing that the world is conspiring against them and not for them. And I am calling bullshift on all of this right now, and am smashing Bullshift Number Five which says to never expect good things to happen, or you will jinx the outcome.
In reality, it is this belief that is actually the very thing holding you back. Believing a desired outcome won’t happen so you don’t jinx it is what is actually preventing you from achieving it in the first place. Stay with me, and I’ll show you exactly how to break free from the curse of the jinx
You see, after experiencing a traumatic experience, many people are often left feeling quite vulnerable. For me, it was the horrific bullying experience that left huge, gaping wounds inside my soul. I sank into a deep depression after one and a half years of enduring constant bullying. The only thing that could snap me out of that depression and near inability to function in the outside world was to put a stake in the ground and take a stand. It became “them” versus “me” for the next twenty-five years. And by “them” I mean literally every other person on the planet, not just the perpetrators of the incident.
Though I vowed never to be treated that way again, the scars remained. My self-worth was stripped away. I lost all sense of confidence. Though I appeared strong on the outside, it was merely an act. And so, as part of my coping mechanism, I created the jinx world in which I lived for two and a half decades.
The jinx world exists for people who don’t feel worthy of achieving things or having good things happen to them. People who live here tell themselves not to expect anything good to happen. They tell themselves not to expect the desired outcome. They don’t dare speak of good fortunes or allow themselves to dream big. Why? Because if they do, they will be placing a “jinx” on the dream, and therefore causing it not to happen. And if by a very slim chance it does happen, they will just say that they have oddly escaped the curse of the jinx. It’s really such an ass-backward way of living, and it is in complete and utter opposition to the way the universe actually operates.
What really happens is that the more we focus on why we are certain something won’t happen, the more it actually doesn’t happen. The more we tell ourselves to expect the inevitable bad outcome to happen, the more it does. But what we fail to realize is that it is our very focus on the bad things—on what we don’t want to happen, on the poor results we are sure to get—that makes these bad things manifest into reality. We respond with a “told you so” mentality without ever realizing for a second that the negative way we perceived the situation is the very thing that caused it to become our reality in the first place. Why? Because we are convinced that the slightest belief in a positive outcome actually jinxes the situation and casts a dreaded, dark spell over us for daring to believe that something good might actually happen. How ridiculous is this?
And so our 5th and final Universal Truth is this: The curse of the jinx does not exist.
Thinking, feeling, and believing steadfastly in your desired outcome is what actually brings the desired outcome into existence.
So say goodbye to the jinx, once and for all, and hello to your new found sense of freedom that comes with knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that you can design and live a life bigger and better than you ever dreamed of before.
So now it’s time to start putting the pieces back together and building your abundant life. Are you ready?
Until next time my friends.
Sending much love and gratitude from me to you.
