What's Your Story?


 What's Your Story?

Be mindful of the story that you tell yourself…and others.

The story that we tell ourselves and others… IS the story that we grow into.

When our subconscious mind accepts our thoughts, it’s main goal is to do everything it can to make those thoughts true.

I have realized this several times over the last few days.

For example, I was thinking about building my client list and getting the word out about my business.

That’s when I started to think about what could go wrong, how long it would take, how much work I would have to do and began to feel bad.

Now, if I start to believe these things CAN happen, my subconscious mind starts to work on looking for reasons that support those thoughts and searches for actions to take to make those thoughts true.

Our subconscious mind does not make judgments on what we think. 

The job of the subconscious mind is simply to amply or magnify what we think.

Earl Nightingale, in “The Strangest Secret”, likened our mind to a very fertile Garden.  This fertile ground will produce an abundant bounty of whatever you plant.

Be it a roses or deadly nightshade.  Your mind only produces what you plant.

This is when I had stop and change my thinking.

I reminded myself that my subconscious mind wants to please me and will work on making anything I believe (what I can see, hear, and feel in my mind) to become true, become my reality.

I then rephrased my thoughts and began to tell myself a different story, like… ”Clients come because of the work I put into letting them know I exist…I am always bettering myself, my value and my skill…I am moving toward worthwhile goal.”

I begin telling a new story.  I give my subconscious mind different, positive, toward motivated information to dwell on.

So be mindful of the story that you are telling yourself.  And…the story that you decide to repeat to others.

You are in control.  Exercise that control.
