"Whatever you fight, you strengthen; and what you resist, persists." ~ Eckhart Tolle
Good morning, Champions! Is there something in your life that you don't want or don't want to be doing? If you are like me, then there are habits that you'd like to change...and fast, right?
Funny thing happens when you "try" to stop doing something...it gets harder. Ever try to quit smoking, eating sweets, watching television, swearing, or any number of other behaviors? Well, rest easy in knowing that you are normal and functioning like a rational human being. In fact, your brain is trying to help you.
"How?" You may ask. Well, your mind subconsciously focuses on those things that you think about most of the time. Don't believe me? Try this example out for size.
Do not...and I quote, "Do not think about a PINK ELEPHANT!" Whatever you do...do not allow your mind to see a PINK ELEPHANT...say "no" to PINK ELEPHANTS.
Now, did you see a PINK ELEPHANT in your head? I know I did. (Laughing)
Here's the deal, your mind doesn't differentiate between things you want to think about and the things you don't. It just focuses on those thoughts that you introduce to it. So, trying to avoid eating junk food means you have to THINK about it. The more you think about it, the more it persists. Make sense?
Simple fix: Instead of trying to fight a negative thought or behavior, simply start thinking about those things that you want MORE of in your life. Want to start eating healthy choices? Research healthy options and start eating them. Take action today and repeat this process. Eventually, what you no longer want in your life will suffocate by all of the positive thoughts and actions you encourage.
Here's your assignment for today. Make a list of all the things you want in life (be specific) and state it in present tense.
I am smart.
I am handsome.
I have 10 million dollars in the bank.
I eat healthy foods six times a day.
I workout daily.
I have a healthy and happy relationship with my spouse.
I have wonderful kids that love me.
I have a successful business.
I help a lot of people find success in their lives.
Then, when you wake up and before you go to bed, read these statements aloud. Watch how your life begins to change. Trust me, it works.
Let's make today great. You ARE a Champion!
