We become what we think about all day long. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Upon waking our minds automatically seek autopilot mode.
To make things easier and quicker, we become mentally numb to our routine.
We brush our teeth in the same order (left-side, right-side) without question, we frantically look everywhere for the keys tightly held in our hands.
Autopilot is useful for mundane tasks, tasks that need to get done without much thought.
But how about the important tasks?
Is autopilot mode self-deteriorating for the important tasks?
Important tasks must be analyzed for cracks, inefficiencies, and weak points.
When these important tasks are not analyzed we run the risk of taking the wrong actions and saying the wrong things.
Failing to be aware of the important things in life leaves us feeling numb and feeling unfulfilled.
One of the most important tasks we usually leave on autopilot is thinking.
Everything we are thinking today is a result of yesterday’s thoughts, and yesterday’s thoughts, are a result of thoughts from the previous day, month, year…
Rewind back to your very first memory, and all the thoughts you have today are a result of your past mental conditioning.
We have become numb to thinking so automatically, we say the same negative things to ourselves, we never make it past the borders of our comfort zones, and we let fear control us. We continue to experience the same mind chatter day after day. We continue to react the same way to different situations. Situations that could be solutions, turn automatically into problems.
If your reality is not yet what you wish it were, chances are your thoughts are not what they are supposed to be.
If our thoughts are worries, insecurities, and resentment all the time our reality will be blocked from receiving abundance and happiness.
Taking Back Control
Becoming aware of our thoughts is the first step to changing and taking control of our reality. One way to take back control is by writing down all your thoughts for the next 7 days. At the end of those 7 days, analyze what must go (the thoughts that bring you down) and what must stay (the thoughts that uplift you). Then, begin to replace the negative thoughts.
Now, this process is not about “pretending” to be positive. Pretending is very surface and fake. What you want to do instead is begin to replace the negative thoughts with things that you really like. For Example, mentally go back in time and relive a good memory, listen to an uplifting song, or, forget the diet, and get your favorite ice cream. …LIVE A LITTLE!…
Another way to take back control of your thoughts is by doing things outside of your routine. Change the scenery–wake up early one morning and go to the beach, spark conversation with people you would normally not talk to, or take the scenic route to work. Getting our bodies outside of the same daily routine makes us more alive and puts us back in control of our lives. 🙂
How to Create your Reality
When we remove our thoughts from autopilot and take back control of them we can manifest the things we wish to accomplish in our lives; the things we truly deserve.
Stop wasting brain power and start manifesting!
All those long hours you spend wondering if your new boyfriend is with another girl, take that energy and envision yourself in 5 years having accomplished your 5-year goals. Another great tool for manifestation is to lay 3 minutes in bed before you open your eyes and really envision how you want your day to go, how you want that interview or business meeting to turn out. Really hone in on the results you want way before it even happens. This technique is used in sports and dance to improve performance and get people into a WINNING mindset right from the start of your day.
