Are You Self Aware? Steps to Self Awareness and Motivation (Part 1 of 2)

Posted on

Are you aware that our subconscious mind does not know the difference between when we think truthfully or when we think in lies? Our subconscious is very interesting as it will always take our thoughts verbatim or as exactly how we state them.

With that in mind, we must always always … always … always be very careful as to what we think about! I’;m sure that you’;ve heard the saying "You’;re what you eat?" Well, take this into consideration … "We are what we THINK!"

Our reality of life or how we perceive life is created by what we tend to focus on. So ‘;what’; are you focusing on in a continuing basis?

Which leads me to my next question … "Are you ‘;self-aware’; of your daily thoughts?" An interesting question is not it? What I mean by that question is this … do you actually analyze your daily thoughts? Have you ever thought about ‘;what’; you think about?

Being human, I’;m sure you consistently think in the same pattern of thoughts that you have for years. For example … you wake up in the morning and think the same thoughts. You’;re driving into work … thinking the same thoughts you do whenever you drive into work, come home, make dinner, watch TV etc …

Now, when you really start to analyze your thoughts, become self aware of your thoughts, you may notice that you possibly may be thinking de-motivational thoughts. These are most likely thought patterns that you have been running through your mind for over the past months if not ‘;years’;.

Here are some examples:

o I’;m not beautiful

o I’;m fat

o I’;m too skinny

o Why am I so stupid?

o Why does this always happen to me?

It’;s now time for you to become aware of your thoughts and how they hold you back from what you really what to achieve!

So, I have a challenge for you. Starting today, yes …. ‘;today’;. Each time you have a de-motivating thought I want you to write it down on a piece of paper. That’;s correct … write … it … down. Make a list and number them … 1, 2, 3 and so on. Keep this list with you at all times and as the days go by, do one of the following steps …

1) when a new de-motivational thought pops into your mind, add it to your list

Or …

2) Place a mark beside the one (s) that keeps popping into your thoughts. Thus, keeping a tab as to how many times you think the same de-motivational thought.

So, are you up for the challenge? Are you ready to make positive changes in your life? I know you are ready, so why not get started right now and I look forward to your questions and hearing all about your progress.

Next month I’;ll be explaining step 2. Be sure to check back in then!
