Energy of dissatisfaction

Precisely because dissatisfaction is so uncomfortable, it energizes your life. When you are not satisfied with the way things are, in that feeling of dissatisfaction is the energy to change.

You can tap into that energy to change yourself, or the situation, or both. In every case, you are looking directly at an opportunity for significant improvement.

Experiencing what you don’t want can drive you to create what you do want. The next time that happens, jump at the opportunity.

Take hold of the energy of your dissatisfaction. Immerse your awareness in the focus, in the drive, in the determination it gives you.

Then look out at the world with joy, with gratitude and with love for all that is. See the possibilities in a new, empowering light, and let them push you into action.

Feel your dissatisfaction, and resolve its discomfort by growing, building, creating, by becoming smarter, wiser, more capable and generous. In the energy of your dissatisfaction is your opportunity to uplift the whole world.

— Ralph Marston
