Be Receptive

What is to be receptive and how does it apply to your life?

Receptive is defined by, Websters New World Dictionary (2018), as willing to consider or accept new suggestions and ideas; able or willing to receive something, especially signals or stimuli (Agnes 2018).

To be receptive means to be open to something different. To be receptive means that you do not resist ideas, suggestions, outcomes, etc. To be receptive, means you are open to change. Being receptive means you are ready to receive something.

Do you understand what it is to be receptive, and how it applies to your life?

To be receptive applies to your life because often, in life we get comfortable, and we do not accept change, we resist it. You have to be able to receive so that you can understand and grow from that understanding. You have to be ready and willing to receive something different, no matter, what it is.

Ask yourself, what are you resisting in life?

Are you resisting letting the pains of the past go? If you answered yes, then you are resisting emotional growth.  Are you resisting understanding yourself?  If you answered no, then you are, in fact, resisting, because we all have room for improvement. And improvement starts with understanding one’s self.

Do you understand how you are resisting being receptive, yet? 

You are resisting because you keep repeating the same thing over and over again. You repeat the same mistakes in life, even if they come in different forms, they are, in fact, the same. You are resisting the lesson. The lesson is what is going to lead you to the next level in life, that is GROWTH!

If you are in a constant battle mode, ready to argue in an instant, you are resisting happiness. That means you are angry! Let your anger go, stop letting it hinder you from happiness! It is not worth it! All battle mode does is allow you to enter into the everyday drama of life. LET IT GO!

Recognize, where you are resisting something in your life. Stop letting the things from your past hinder you from your future. Take responsibility for YOU, and change your approach! You have to be ready to receive the good, the bad, and the ugly. You have to receive it so that you don’t allow it to make you get stuck in life so that you can grow.

I encourage you to be receptive to something different, stop being so comfortable that you continue to resist life. Let the drama go, and move forward! Rember you were born for a purpose, stop resisting that purpose!



“Seeking means: to have a goal; but finding means: to be free, to be receptive, to have no goal”

Herman Hesse

“I do not know how I shall develop, but for the present, I am continuing to work within ordinary, generally known terrain, different only because of a deep substratum, which leads those who are receptive to sense the finer regions”

Piet Mondrian

“You always have something to learn from people who have been through more than you. Be open and receptive to what they know”

Zac Efron
