How To Change Your Circumstances

By Karim Hajee

Every week I get a number of emails from people all over the world telling me about their circumstances and how they wish they could change them.

I hear stories of how their parents mistreated them, how they were born into a poor or dysfunctional family, how their spouses are negative, how difficult their jobs and bosses are. It seems everybody has something or someone to blame for their current circumstances.

That's okay. After all - it's not about blame.

Instead of trying to attribute your situation to someone or certain events - how about focusing on finding a solution and finding a way to change your circumstances.

I'm going to outline how you can change your situation or circumstances and improve the quality of your life and the lives of those around you.

Stop The Blame Game

The first step to changing your circumstances is to stop blaming somebody or some events for where you are today.

Sure other people and events had an influence - but it's time to accept some responsibility and admit that you may have had a role in how things turned out.

If you look carefully at the events of the past you'll find that a single decision or a series of decisions that you made played a major role in creating your own circumstances.

When you accepts some responsibility you begin to give yourself the power to change things.

If you continue to blame somebody or an event - you give them power and you will continue to live life on their terms.

You can live life on somebody else's terms and change your situation.
It simply won't happen.

If you still don't feel that you played a role - then take a look at your thoughts. Are they predominantly negative? Are they filled with anger? Resentment? If they are then you will only attract more negative situations to you and this will lead to more negative circumstances.

If your circumstances are negative or if you feel you are not living the life you want then in order to change this you have to accept that on some level you manifested the life that you have.

You may not want to admit to that - but work with this idea for and you'll begin to understand how you can create change.

For example: if you are currently unemployed - what decision or choices did you make that may have played a role in you being unemployed? Did the job you selected that you eventually lost lead to your current situation? Had you made a different choice would you still be unemployed?

If you recently got divorced or broke up with your spouse - what choices or actions did you take that may have played a role in your current situation? Could you have made a better choice?

Chances are we all could have made different choices that would have changed our circumstances. And this is the process of accepting responsibility. Because now you can focus on making better choices, attracting better situations and creating the changes that you want.

How can you make better choices?

Change the way you think. Instruct your subconscious mind to help you make better choices. Attract better situations into your life by changing the way you think and live.

So think about your current situation.
Accept some responsibility for what happened - when you accept responsibility you give yourself the power to create the changes that you want.
Look back at some of the decisions that you made that may have influenced the way your life turned out.
Track your thoughts - are they predominantly negative or positive?
Start making better choices.
Get your mind and subconscious mind working for you so that you begin improving your situation.

Change Your Attitude.

Now that you have accepted some responsibility it's time to begin attracting positive situations and people into your life.

To do this first start with your attitude. This means instead of looking at what is wrong in your situation and other situations, look for what is positive and find ways to correct what is wrong.

I recall working with a student named Armando, who had experienced tremendous
success when he was young. By the time he was 29 he was a millionaire. By the
time he was 35 he had lost just about all of his wealth. Now at 42 he
has turned things around completely and is back making fortunes.

What happened?

When Armando and I started working together several years ago - this former
wonder kid had a terrible attitude. He knew everything, and everybody
else was either crazy or didn't know what they were talking about.

To cut a long story short, Armando realized that when he was successful he believed and thought that anything was possible. Along the way he got tired, angry, frustrated and negative. That's when he lost most of his fortune. It took a while for Armando to realize this - but when he did - he changed his attitude and changed his life.

How do you change your attitude?

Change what you regularly think about.

Instead of filling your mind with negative thoughts - fill them with positive thoughts.

Instead of looking at why things won't work out - force yourself to find solutions and think of how things can work out. Open yourself up to all possibilities.

Think of your mind as garden, you can cultivate it, or you can let it run wild. You can fill it with the weeds of negative thinking, thoughts of lack, limitation and worry. If you don't control your mind and cultivate it with positive thoughts regularly - the weeds of negative thinking will take over and destroy your life - just like weeds can destroy your garden.

It's your mind and how you think, live and see things will have a direct impact on your current situation.


Every thought you have is picked up by your subconscious mind.

Your subconscious mind then considers your regular thoughts as an instruction - telling it to create what you regularly think.

So if you are constantly negative and have a negative attitude you will continue to create your own negative circumstances.

This constant negative thought process could lead to you losing your job, breaking up with a spouse, losing your home, making bad investment choices, losing on a business venture, etc.

A negative attitude leads to a negative life and negative circumstances.

So start changing your thoughts and attitude today. Regularly think about the positive situations in your life. Search for good and positive things everyday.
Look for solutions instead of constantly looking at the problems.
Give your subconscious mind positive instructions so that you create a positive life

You can turn things around in your life.
You can improve or change your circumstances.
You can begin living the life you want.
Take responsibility and empower yourself.
Take charge of your life by creating a positive attitude.
Give your mind and subconscious mind positive instructions so that you start living a better, more fulfilling life.
