Starting With Humor
I thought I might make this more like a newsletter today with a few sections. Humor is good for us, helps us be healthy and happy. Here is some true humor.
I was at a Christmas dinner last night and the lady that sat across from me said, "I told my daughter I wasn't getting any younger and she said, Don't worry mom, you can come live with me when you need help and a place to live, but you will have to wash dishes...."
It turns out that getting her daughter to wash dishes was always a battle when she was growing up.
One Of My Greatest Tools
One of my greatest tools for helping people to make dramatic and positive changes in their lives is cause and effect. We live in a world where everything that happens is the result of the events leading up to it. Drop a brick on your foot and your foot hurts. The pain is the effect of the cause, which was dropping a brick on your foot. Please be more careful next time.
You are getting what you are getting because you are doing what you are doing and not doing the things you are not doing. In other words, what you do and fail to do matter.
Take your weight. Actually, your health in general, but let's focus on your weight. Your weight is the result of what you have done concerning weight over the last year or two, certainly the last six months. Over eat and you are over weight. Eat less and you lose weight.
Now let's back up another step in the process, we have results, then we backed up to actions, the next step back is thought. Your actions concerning your weight are the result of your thoughts about food and the things that affect your weight. You could correctly say that your weight is a print out of your thoughts about weight that you have had in the past.
Think that cheesecake looks good, I will have a slice and that gives you one result. Think I need to lose weight, I really must lose weight, I will start skipping deserts and start eating smaller portions and that has a different affect.
Where I come in is there is often a disconnect between goals and actions. We are not shown in life how to deal with our subconscious thinking. When our goals and subconscious thoughts are not in alignment it is a lot like a tug of war played out in our lives.
Now take money and finances. Your checkbook is a print out of what you have been thiking about money over the last months and years. If you had different thoughts about money and finance, you would have had different results.
The reason so many people repeat the same mistakes and have the same problems over and over again is we set goals with the conscious mind, but our habits and many of our actions come from the thoughts or programs in the subconscious mind. Learn to manage your subconscious mind and get it over to your conscious way of thinking and you can change not only your life, but the world.
Get to know your subconscious mind. When you act in a way that is not in alignment with your goals, then ask yourself why? Get a book or two on the subject and even consider taking me up on a coaching trial.
