Changing our day-to-day behaviors may be much easier than formerly envisioned. By meditating on and repeating motivational and inspirational quotes, we are much better prepared to change our thought patterns, habits and in turn, change our lives.
Here's how it's done.
If our company believe something to be easy, we discover little bit, if any struggle in accomplishing it. However, if we picture something to be hard to accomplish, then our battle ends up being more evident. In fact, if we envision that it is difficult to change a specific behavior, then we will always find experiences that will validate that belief.
Take this for example. We get up one morning and decide that:
" This is the day I start reducing weight. When things get difficult, I will not grab junk food, but rather I will focus on something else to keep my mind inhabited.
It'll be difficult initially, but I'm going to provide it a shot."
If you continue with this idea pattern and belief, don't be shocked to discover yourself struggling usually. Why?
If we look at this example closely we find a number of thought patterns and beliefs already in place. We have determined to do something great for ourselves, however we do ourselves an injustice by selecting certain negative thought patterns, beliefs and words that support it.
We have said,
" When things get difficult ..."
( This is currently assuming that there will be challenging moments! Strike one!)
" It'll be tough at first ..."
( This is currently presuming it will be hard initially! Strike two!)
" ... but I'm going to provide it a try."
( Remember the movie "The Karate Kid" ..."
There is no "try", there is just "do". Strike three!)
Now there are numerous items out there that will assist individuals in losing weight. Some, if not all of them, might work for different individuals at numerous stages of their objective. However for many people who have persuaded themselves that slimming down is challenging, some items may fall short when our thought patterns are more powerful than our desire to alter.
Here is something that I've done to change a behavior I no longer preferred.
I recently lost 20lbs in about 12 weeks. I didn't like the method I looked, felt or even believed for that matter. I needed to change and take some action towards it.
Initially, I understood that I needed to alter my way of considering losing weight. My old thought patterns were no longer working for me. My ideas resembled little small photos that I forecasted in my mind of how heavy I was.
I no longer desired these images or believed patterns a part of my life. I had to pick a thought pattern and belief that would be much easier to think of.
I picked this thought,
" Losing weight is easier than I believed."
Maybe not the most perfect for everybody however it worked for me.
Secondly, I selected a word I wanted to focus on for that day, week or month to help me in accomplishing my goal (Start with just a day, or just an hour for that matter. Keep it easy.)
The word I selected required to be in relation to the modification I want to make. For example, I chose the word "FOCUS", as I felt that that's what I needed to think of the majority of time; focusing more on reducing weight than acquiring it. Pick any word as long as it relates to your circumstance.
(Attitude, Energy, Action, Believe ...)
Following that, I scoured the Internet for inspirational and inspirational quotes that resonated within me that associated to that specific word I picked. Quotes that I could keep in mind, particularly ones that actually talked to what I wanted to accomplish.
But here's the most fundamental part.
I needed quotes that were effective enough to alter my idea patterns the moment I read them. Quotes that REALLY spoke with me when I my eyes fell upon them. Quotes that forced me to stop briefly and think for a minute. Quotes that had that additional "edge" where my mind said, "Yes. This is one."
These are all indications of a quote that held power for me. I "focused" in on the following quotes.
" All that we are is the outcome of what we have actually thought."
" The only method to find the limits of the possible, is to surpass them into them impossible." Arthur C. Clarke
" It's not what you attain in the end that matters, it's who you end up being at the same time." Author Unknown
In truth, I discovered lots of quotes that I turned to from time to time, but these three I always came back to. They mentioned who I was, what I wanted to achieve and who I wanted to end up being as I worked towards my goal.
I composed them down. I carried these quotes with me constantly. I read them and meditated on them whenever I had the opportunity to. At work, home or at the gym (yup, I lastly got myself to exercise, mainly by focusing on Arthur C. Clarke's quote!), I concentrated on these three powerful quotes to help me FOCUS on what I desired.
Because I altered my thought patterns, gradually, I can truthfully state I am 20 pounds lighter and a great deal better. I can truthfully say I am 20 lbs lighter and a great deal better. Yes, I'll be the very first to confess that accomplishing the goal involved more than simply believing but everything began with my thoughts. The thoughts then permeated into my actions. (Now I require to FOCUS on keeping that weight, so for me a whole brand-new thought pattern begins.)
Here are the three actions again:
1. Chosen to change your way of thinking of a habits, making it easier for you to think about it. Phrase it in a basic way.
2. Pick a word to focus on to alter that behavior for a period of time.
3. Discover a minimum of three motivational or inspirational quotes connected to that particular word that are powerful adequate to alter your present thought patterns the moment you read them.
Contemplate them and duplicate them, silently or aloud, every possibility you get.
Be patient. Stick with it. Offer it a long time.
Why do you think companies use a 30-day money back ensure? They know that if you do something for 30 days it becomes a routine and you no longer need to return it! (Learned something, huh?) Offer it time.
The initial step to what you want to achieve is changing your mind and the thought patterns and beliefs associated with your behavior. Ideas are the precursor to action, suggesting that thoughts occur prior to any action occurs. That's what requires to be changed first. Your ideas.
It worked for me and I hope this motivates and encourages you to achieve your objective.
