Some great insights on the future of the internet that I raised in the last post. Hope you checked it out. Now let’s go back to the million-dollar question I raised earlier: Namely, what do you do, when you realize that most of your thoughts are negative?
First, you work on starting to catch them. Meaning that you notice when you have a lack-centered or fear-based thought. This is much harder than it sounds. Because you’ve been conditioned to think you are your thoughts, as opposed to the thinker of your thoughts. (As we discussed some posts back.)
Now when something happens and you catch a bad thought, you have to stop and reposition it. Example: You’re single and attracted to someone at a party. You think about meeting them and immediately your first thought is about being rejected. You notice that and speak to yourself mentally. “Isn’t that interesting? I was thinking about meeting that person, and my first thought was rejection! Where did that come from? Aren’t I just making that up? Why am I not thinking that they would be delighted to meet me?”
And you know what, they still could reject you. But that’s really not likely. But even if they did, you still would have started the change in your thought process. And every time you make an incremental change, it takes you closer to the breakthrough point – which is what we will discuss next!
