The quality of your life in this moment is determined by how you feel about it.
Whether we do it consciously or unconsciously, we create our experience of life.
If you’re under the impression that the power of positive thinking is a useful skill then you’ll enjoy this insight into an even more profound and essential approach to achieving sustainable positive results in your life.
If you are one of those who disregard positive thinking due to its one sidedness, superficiality or inability to affect the underlying issues that are responsible for our problems in life, then this article is most definitely for you too.
Our emotional feelings, whether we’re aware of them or not, are the foundation of our thoughts and behaviours, and therefore our results. Emotions are our signal to take action in a certain way or to abstain from inappropriate action.
Emotions are the energy associated with our beliefs. Our past experiences, especially those from the first 10 years of our life, determine our core beliefs. These beliefs become self fulfilling prophecies that when combined with powerful feelings are responsible for attracting the people and circumstances that we experience in our life.
No amount of positive thinking will do much to change a negative core belief. Therefore many people who use positive affirmations and visualizations to manifest their goals don’t experience their desired results. The reason for this is that they have beliefs that are not in alignment with their superimposed thoughts. It’s like trying to steer a train by asking someone in the last car to change the direction of the entire train. It simply won’t work.
The current state of your life – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually along with your personal and professional relationships, finances and belongings are an indication of what you believe.
To overcome the unconscious programming that prevents you from being successful, you may want to update any limiting beliefs to new appropriate ones that are aligned with the results that you want to experience.
Experiencing the external results that we want in life begins by changing our inner model of the world to match this. This means that when we take control of our beliefs and feelings, we will then be in control of our results.
You can predict your outer life tomorrow by looking at your inner self today. You can change what’s in front of you by changing what’s inside you.
Question the perspectives, attitudes and behaviours that don’t serve you in achieving your desires: How have these adopted beliefs benefited you in some way? Where do they come from? What is the constructive lesson, or what can you become aware of now that changes everything?
No matter what you’ve ever been told about yourself, and no matter what you think you are – You Are More Than That. Believe it and you will experience it!
Thinking that only through some kind of achievement or acquisition we can feel a certain way is the cause of hardship and disappointment for many. The reason for this is because nothing outside of us can ever provide us with what’s most important to us. Only you are responsible for your feelings.
Become the conscious creator of your results by answering this question: What do I need to believe about myself and my capabilities in order to enjoy this moment and create a bright future?
