Knowing how your mind works is a great advantage in the modern world especially since it creates your reality.
Whether it is a happy and successful reality is up to you.
Successful (or effective) people know their own minds and recognize the relationship between their thinking and their reality. They make spiritually smart decisions that are in alignment with a higher power source. Successful people look within for guidance.
Unsuccessful (or ineffective) people have no clue what they are thinking and see no relationship between their thoughts and their reality. They make unconscious decisions that are disconnected from a higher power. Unsuccessful people look to other people for guidance.
A major problem in the world today is that human beings have not developed their thinking skills.
Here’s a thought to ponder (I love brain twisters). Just because you have a thought does not mean you are thinking!
Thoughts fly through our heads all day long (to the tune of about 65,000 a day, and 95% of those are thoughts we have already thought, and those are negative and limiting).
In this mode, we are on autopilot and going nowhere fast, circling the same territory again and again.
Thinking involves a conscious and deliberate act to monitor and choose the thoughts you want to think. It involves asking yourself questions so you can gain insight and revelation. It is kind of like conscious dialoguing with yourself and a higher power.
It’s been said many times that we become what we think about all day long.
So when we allow unconscious and negative thoughts to run through our minds all day long, guess what our reality is like?!
Not a pretty picture.
Speaking of pictures, are you aware that your brain thinks in images?
Let me demonstrate….
If I were to say— think of a horse.
You would think of a horse
If I were to say— think of a purple horse.
You would think of a purple horse.
If I would say— DON’T think of a horse.
You would still think of a horse.
See what I mean!
So what are you telling yourself-what to do or what not to do?
Follow me……If you are saying to yourself:
Don’t make a mistake.
Your subconscious cannot see “don’t” so it “sees” mistake and that is what you get.
In fact, research shows the brain cannot “compute” words like no, don’t can’t, not and yet we use them all the time.
(To do your own research, keep a log of the number of times you and those around you use these words in our daily conversations!) You will be astonished.
I was— especially when used to sub at the junior high campus: “Don’t run. Don’t talk.” “No talking. ”
Ha. The kids do just the opposite!
To grow new neural pathways in your brain, you may want to think/say something like this:
I am completely focused and get my work done ahead of schedule.
Now your brain can go to work on how to make that happen.
