How can I stop doing stuff that doesn’t make my life better, and start doing stuff that does makes my life better?
Now that is a great question, and I think it’s worth a blog.
If we want different results we need different thoughts.
Remember, thoughts trigger our emotions, and our emotions become our fuel for action or non-action, and that my friends is how we get our results.
What is the result that you want? I mean really, really want? Do you know? Have you stopped long enough to listen, and listened hard enough to hear?
We are afraid to ask sometimes, we are afraid to imagine a life that is beyond our grasp.
We fail ahead of time talking ourselves out of even trying because we can’t imagine that it would even be possible to have what we really want.
We all want to feel better, be the ideal weight, manage our anger, stop over-drinking, stop over-shopping, have the job we love, have the marriage of or dreams, mend the relationships, the land the deals…
…and yet, we talk ourselves out of wanting anything so we don’t feel the pain of disappointment. So we don’t feel the pain of rejection, fear and anxiety.
We are more comfortable living at the effect of what life hands us, because then we can just blame our circumstances and all of the people that have a hand in our circumstances.
Guess what? Those people are you!
Your results create your circumstances. So if your circumstances are out of alignment with your results then my friend, we have work to do.
Get started today. You don’t have to entertain the first thought that comes into your head, the unintentional thought. You can let that one go and land on a thought that serves you.
“I can’t, I don’t know how, I am not sure?” None of these thoughts serve you, EVER!
The first step to stop doing the stuff that does not serve you, is to stop thinking the thought that doesn’t serve you and start finding the ones that do serve you.
Try this…”I am figuring this thing out.” “I am figuring out how to do this thing.”
No one ever figured anything out saying “I can’t.”
So, in the words of my one of my favorite girl bands, The Spice Girls…what do you want? I mean, really, really want!
Now, go be a goal setting, goal getting, goal digger.
