Education? It certainly helps but that’s not it.
Connections? Again it helps but that’s not it.
It’s the internal conversation you have with yourself that manifests itself through your thoughts, words and ultimately your actions. It’s the conversation you have with the people around you. What you think, feel, and believe you can achieve is verbalized constantly. Therefore, if you want to be successful your thoughts, feelings, and language must match that success level as if you’re already there. We create our world with our thoughts and words.
But how do you go about doing that you might ask. You can start by changing your everyday language to become the powerful positive force you wish to become. You may not be aware of it but our language is filled with many negative words which then creates that what we just said we didn’t want.
Our brains are a positive producing organism which means that is doesn’t process negative commands. Your unconscious mind cannot process what is not. It simply responds to the key words you give it. Children under seven are inclined to respond like the unconscious mind. Tell a child not to touch something or not to drop something and what do they do, touch it, drop it?
Here are some examples of what I mean and how to change it.
1. Its hard becomes - It’s not easy – It’s easy.
2. I’m broke becomes - I’m not rich – I’m rich.
3. I’m afraid becomes - I have no courage – I have courage
4. I’m sick becomes - I’m not very healthy – I’m very healthy
Here are some more common expressions that should be changed to more high energy positive language.
No problem – Thank you
Problem – Opportunity
Bad/Difficult – Challenge
Trying –Working on
Failure – Learning experience
If – When
Don’t’ /Can’t – Will
Undecided – Choice
Strange / Weird – Unique
Now let’s see if you can catch yourself in time to change your language to more high energy words.
It starts by changing how you think. Eventually with enough practice your actions will start to mimic your language. As a side benefit, you’ll notice that you’ll start to feel happy about life in general. It’s a win – win scenario for your key to success.
