There are people in our lives who are positive and there are those who are negative, both we may consider friends, but how is this effecting us?
When you are in conversation with others and someone is talking about something as simple as remembering names or as elaborate as doubling their income have you noticed yourself thinking “wow, I can’t do that!” and then after you think about it you verbalize it and notify those around you aren’t capable of achieving what they are talking about!
This is one of the many ways we reinforce and program ourselves for underachievement and perceived failure. All of the “I’m not’s,” “I cant’s,” and whatever other self demeaning vocabulary we have learned is day by day sabotaging us subconsciously. Since thoughts are things, this is scientifically proven by the way, it is imperative that we begin to train ourselves to think in terms of what we are capable of and what we do want to manifest into our lives.
Here is a fun and interesting little challenge I learned from hypnotist Topher Morrison. When you have “one of those mornings,” and you perceive things to already be going downhill from the time you get out of bed, for the rest of the day try this: Walk everywhere you have to go at a little faster speed, with your head up, looking around, with a smile on your face greeting everyone you see, and when you get where you are going put your hands up and say “Here I am, I made it!” Do this the entire day until you go to sleep at night.
The reasoning behind this is you typically don’t see unhappy, miserable people walking around quickly with a smile on their face especially greeting others, and your subconscious mind knows this as well. By walking faster and smiling you are now inadvertently tricking your subconscious mind into being happy and enjoying life and since your subconscious is the director of your feelings and emotions you may just feel better on a conscious level as well. Go figure!
Enjoy your day, and have some fun!
