Did you know that by the time you’re 35, 95% of you is made up of stored memories and beliefs of the past, and your life becomes habitual.
Think about it for a second, from the time you get out of bed on the same side, go to the toilet, feed your kids and animals if you have any, have breakfast, shower, dress for work, travel to work the same way, think about your boss, the amount of work you have to do, how angry you feel, your co-workers who ’push your buttons’, family dramas, how tired you feel, and that you want to lose weight, go for a run maybe you’ll start tomorrow…….. and so it goes on throughout the day.
The thoughts that you have are generally a repeat of what you thought about yesterday. So even though you’re moving forward in your life, you’re actually living in the past on a day to day basis, as your thoughts are the same as yesterday, hence you’re living a ‘Groundhog Day’ over and over again. No wonder people get stuck in a rut.
The various events that trigger your emotions that you’re addicted to, that you conceal and push down, only sharing your day with friends that ‘get it’, but really they just reinforce you being stuck and staying in your ‘story’, or you drown your sorrows in alcohol, cigarettes, chocolate or prescribed drugs etc….. which only pushes the emotions further down into your body.
If these trapped emotions aren’t resolved they will lead to the body breaking down, leading to stress and disease.
You see how you think and feel creates your reality and destiny.
Now I know you probably know this already, and still sometimes find yourself in this constant downward spiral of emotions when you’re having a ‘bad day’. I know I’ve done it.
Same thoughts lead to same behaviours lead to same experiences lead to same emotions leading to the same thoughts…. and on it goes in a loop.
So if you’re not happy with how your life is going, and how you’re feeling then the trick is to BECOME AWARE AND CHANGE YOUR MIND, in the instance you feel yourself out of whack, and put your attention back on what you do want to create in your life – the solutions, the opportunities, not the current ‘problems’
Every time you become AWARE you’re no longer in the ‘known habit’, so the predictable future doesn’t exist.
You see what you focus on you get more of.
E.g how many times a day have you said’ I’m not good enough, I don’t have enough money, I will never get that raise, I feel fat, I’m tired, I don’t feel well etc’ Unconsciously over & over throughout the day, no wonder by the time you come home from work you’re exhausted and stressed.
Put another way – you are who you say you are and you are who you say you’re not.
Your thoughts are THAT powerful and create your reality.
So become aware of your thoughts and your feelings throughout the day.
Start you day off as you mean to go on, breaking the habitually patterns of the past by asking yourself :-
- Who do I want to be today?
- How do I want to feel?
And then BE that person throughout the day.
You can do this, you have the power and energy within you to change your mind.
Wish It … Dream It … Do It!
