Changing the Direction of your Thoughts
Everyone’s model of the world is different and we create our reality with our values, our beliefs, our experiences and our language. We also change our language depending on these filters and the world around us. The phrases that we say have a big impact on our motivation either in a negative way or a positive way. Watch the video and then reflect and use the tool I give you below.
There are some phrases that aren’t helpful in giving us positive direction- here are just a few of them:
- I shouldn’t
- I mustn’t
- I oughtn’t to
- I can’t
- I won’t
- I couldn’t
- I wouldn’t
- I’d better not
When we say these phrases or any others like this, we create a reality for ourself, and others around us, that is negative and demotivating. And I’m sure that you’d like to change this.
If we said these phrases instead:
- I can
- I shall
- I will
- It’s time
Can you see how much more motivational they are?
So we can change the direction of our thoughts using these positive phrases.
Here’s an example: “I know you think that you shouldn’t and are sure that you can’t but it you take the time to consider the possibilities, maybe it’s time and you will definitely achieve what you want to do!”
The next time someone says to you “I can’t”, take them on a journey to “I can” and “I will”. They will be inspired and change their reality.
And if you find yourself using words that create a negative reality, take yourself on that journey as well.
If you find yourself unable to change your thoughts using words, get in touch and have a discovery session with me.
Until next week
