Tip#239: Why Your Buttons Get Pushed - Evan Almighty
Getting your buttons pushed does not feel good. But if you can see the hidden opportunities it will open your mindset to a whole new world of learning.
For the past several weeks amazing career opportunities have unfolded for me. They include writing motivational articles for Zoomer, a national magazine, being asked to co-host a weekly podcast and to develop a partnership with a business consulting organization.
I believe I made these opportunities happen through the tools I learned from the audio books Think and Grow Rich: The 21st-Century Updated Edition (see tips #218, #221, #224, #227) and Money and the Law of Attraction. Some may see my recent successes as great luck and yet I know deep down I simply learned tools and methods on how to magnetize these opportunities.
On the flipside opportunities have manifested that appeared to be the opposite of what I've wanted in my business relationships. One of my goals for 2009 was to have the best business team and I've met a few individuals who seemed to be what I wanted but then ended up pushing my buttons!
Thankfully, it was a movie that helped me focus on the silver lining within these "button pushers". It reminded me that the law of attraction was still in action leading me to my goals.
Evan Almighty 2007
The comedy Evan Almighty is a sequel to Evan Almightywhere God (Morgan Freeman), gives Bruce (Jim Carrey) an important task. In the sequel God gives Evan (Steve Carell) a task to build a modern day Noah’s ark.
This puts incredible strain on his wife, played by Lauren Graham, when Evan is portrayed in the media as a crazy man. All she prayed for was to have a closer family and decides to leave Evan with her kids. Soon after she receives a revelation when she encounters God (in disguise) and hears him say this...
"Let me ask you something. If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other?"
So let this movie message inspire you to see your hidden opportunities. Let this help you to deal with the people or situations that are pushing your buttons. Do your best to exercise patience and see how your situations are helping you get what you really want or pray for.
Believe that every encounter you have is meaningful. All you have to do is focus on the message or lesson being offered.
