How to shift from survival mode to growth mode.
Thinking is the highest function we are capable of - wherever we are there is an energy flowing into our consciousness - and that energy has no form we give it form - and we have the ability to choose if that form is positive or negative. And that's what thinking is.
Thinking is bringing form from nothing. It's putting it into something. Building a picture- an Idea.
We do not have to accept what IS coming at us from the outside - so when the information comes in we stop and think about it - ask ourselves - Is this information going to serve me? If it doesn't we can reject it.
With the Conscious Mind - using our Reasoning factor we can think about all the information coming from outside / we have the ability to reject Ideas from the outside - and do not have to buy into the Idea that we're going to have a tough time.
Do you know that Our Sub-Conscious Mind can not reject any idea - and it can not differentiate between what is real and what is imagined - it must accept everything we give to it - we can use our Intellect to make better choices for ourselves - If we are going to use our Intellect we should use it for something constructive - and if we're going to get Emotionally involved - we should get emotionally involved with the Image / Idea that we Originate - and we WANT.
Do not allow your environment or CNN choose for you.
Call for Action: Take this week and start choosing the Ideas that you get emotionally involved with. Do not allow your environment to dictate how you feel.
Let me know if you have any questions on this subject. Would be my pleasure to answer them.
Live like you mean it.
