Lou's post today coincides with a wonderful book of meditations I'm reading by American Buddhist nun Pema Chodron,COMFORTABLE WITH UNCERTAINTY.
Holding on to beliefs limit experience - not that they are problematic all the time, but a stubborn attitude of having to have things a certain way is what creates the issues.
As Chodron puts it, you create a situation in which you "...choose to be blind instead of being able to see, to be deaf instead of being able to hear, to be dead rather than to be alive, asleep, rather than to be awake."
As people who want to live a good, adventurous, real kind of life, we can follow some great instructions.
When you catch yourself grasping at beliefs or thoughts, just see what is - without calling it good or bad. See it without judgment and let it go. Come back tot he present moment
Motivational Power Quote
Change What You're Getting
"If you keep doing what we're doing,
We're going to keep getting what we're getting."
Steven Covey, author and speaker
As I see it. . . . . . . .
Change what you're getting
What we're currently getting is a result of our thinking and what we're currently doing.
To change what you're getting you'll have change your thinking and what we're doing.
It sounds simplistic in nature but it takes a real effort to change.
What we do on a consistent basis become our habits and what we are currently getting is a result of those ingrained habits.
We condition our minds to think in curtain patterns and that conditioning is the foundation of our habits. By focusing your thinking on what you want to achieve and what the desired outcome will be you will begin to change your thinking, your patterns and your habits.
As your thinking becomes focused you are conditioning you mind to think in new patterns which is the foundation for new habits and results.
If we want to change what we're getting we have to change our habits.
The best way to change a habit is to replace it with a new activity, one that will get you more in harmony with what you want to achieve and closer to your objectives. It will take your new activity about 30 days to form the basis that will become the foundation of a new habit.
It takes a positive attitude to change what you're getting by focusing your thinking on what you want to achieve and change you habits to align with you thinking and the desired results.
