It has been estimated that we have about 60,000 thoughts per day and most are nothing more than habitual or redundant thoughts that enter our mind on daily. But why let the same ideas and patterns cycle through our mind? Choose your thoughts – most of the time we don’t – it’s easier and acceptable by many to run on ‘autopilot’. The only time you are conscious is in the present. While in the present moment your thoughts are at the highest level capable of being. If you often find yourself living in the past or perhaps future “can be’s” it can be compared to being on the ‘Merry-go-mind stream’. A constant swirling and whirling of thoughts anywhere but in the present. While in this state your thoughts are at the lowest state they can be.
All human progress, all of the advancements in the world–ranging from the discovery of fire to the creation of the personal computer–have come about by people who had the courage not to listen to the crowd but do what they felt was right, regardless of the fact it provoked uncertainity and fear within them.
Everyone is afraid. I am, you are, everyone is! The only difference between you and the successful people you admire is that they are willing to work and move through their fears in order to get where they want to be. If you don’t learn how to face your fear it will grip your mind, body, and spirit. It will wage a war against you and your dreams. Know this need not be. Once you understand how you can dissipate fear, it shrinks and is no longer a threat. Fear is a conditioned response, a life-draining habit that can easily consume our energy, creativity and spirit if we are not careful. When fear rears its ugly head, beat it down quickly. The best way to do that is to do the thing we fear. Fast.
As our awareness expands, we will become aware of things we previously could neither see nor understand. We don’t know what we don’t know–until we start looking within. All is good here. All that has unfolded for us is leading us to a fantastic place.
Feelings are the doorways into our soul, and they must be acknowledged and then felt to completetion. Feelings carry important information and serve to foster our self relationship if explored fully. When you are feeling good, you are automatically attracting all the good things you want (and have ever wanted) to you. …Feeling good is your message from your own Internal Guidance System (Emotional Guidance/Inner Being) telling you that you are on the right track. It feels like it just feels good, or that you are just happy, but it is actually a message TO you – not just a feeling!
Change takes time. Everyone knows it deep within but no one wants to acknowledge it. Why? We are scared!! Admit it. I mean we are talking about overcoming decades of experience that have led us to be the person that we are today, which makes us question our own values, convenient, sometimes even things that make us happy. And that takes times, lot of it. It is our personal responsibility to have patience for bringing about change.
When you are assigned some work or whenever you make a goal for yourself, you answer two main questions first. What is it the end result I want? Why do I want it? Do you have answers to these questions? If yes, Good. If no, spend some time with these questions and answer them in as much detail as possible. When you are down, now imagine that the task is complete. Just for a minute……How do you feel? Did you have that satisfied smile on your face? Are we elated?
