Gain a deeper understanding
As I woke up this morning and meditated, I came to a deeper understanding of how I use my thinking process to sometimes short circuit my deeper desires. The message came clearly to me that I use worry and doubt often subconsciously to motivate me. But in reality, it is only causing me to work harder not smarter. For example, we have a project that we want to complete in the next 30 days. I want 100 people to come to our event so I am working diligently to get the word out but as I am doing that and making preparations, I am questioning the count that I want to see sign up. I use words and thoughts like; what if we don't get the people, what if people ignore me, what if I order products to hand out and we are stuck with them? All the what if's in the world will not help me reach my goal only a steadfast, focused vision on my end result will do that.
The more I add worry and doubt to the mix, the more I am diluting my mix until it is watered down and becomes ineffective. To my surprise, I did not think I was worrying. Through my meditation, I actually saw how I was sabotaging my end result and that was transformational for me.
Each one of us has the tendency to stop our forward movement because of our thoughts and/or words. We may not mean to do so, but it happens nonetheless. That is why I am suggesting to you to stop long enough and thing or meditate deeply so as to receive a greater understanding as to how your behavior is either helping you or hurting you. Only by taking a conscious insightful approach into your thoughts, will you be able to see clearly how you are setting yourself up for success or disappointment.
Our thoughts and our words are powerful tools that contain great energy and it is our responsibility to use them wisely. I realize what I am saying is not easy to accomplish, however, by being alert to your thoughts and words, you will have the opportunity to create a new way of thinking as you create new patterns and habits. Rome wasn't built in a day; so do not be hard on yourself if you slip. It happens to the best of us; however, stay vigilant, conscious and fully alert as to where you are placing your thoughts and for the words that are coming out of your mouth. I hope that is helpful!
"Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt to harm, to humiliate and to humble." - Yehuda Berg
