Do you have a habit that you just can’t break? You know deep down inside that you don’t want what is in front of you, but you continue to do it anyways? Well you can join the millions who feel the same and it’s not a surprise! We are constantly being told and taught to take a pill, chew gum it will pass, just keep trying it will happen for you but the solution is much more than that.
Unless we are telling ourselves everyday constantly what we want and the steps that are needed to get there we are not moving forward. If you can’t take the time to assure yourself the reasons and the steps needed to get to where you want to be I can assure you that sadly you will not get there. We live in a fast paced world and if you are not evolving daily it is said that you are actually moving backwards.
I sat on these words of wisdom for a couple of minutes and the light went on… while others are working everyday on their goals and dreams there are always those who dwell on the past and just cant stop thinking in the past.. therefore they are living in the past while others are living in the NOW! While being patient they trust that everything they want will come because they are working everyday on personal development and their goals. They are now just simply walking it out. Now walk it out now walk it out.
But seriously, it is said that
“If you are depressed you are living in the past.
If you are anxious you are living in the future.
If you are at peace you are living in the present.” -Lao Tzu
I am telling you all this because you cannot take the piece of advice i pass on to you today without your mind being in the right place. You must trust that this quote is #truth
“Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habit. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.”
― Lao Tzu
It is crazy that our thoughts are what creates everything in our lives, so it came right to me in a moment of realization that we must tell ourselves “I DONT”. I DONT tells your mind that you don’t actually want what’s in front of you! It’s a defense to old habits. For example, I have been helping my mom use I DONT for giving up smoking FOR GOOD, so what she has to say is simply I Don’t smoke… it sounds easy but I challenge you to say that to yourself when you feel the urge to give into an old habit like… I don’t eat fast food… I don’t hang around negative people.
I promise if you try this it WILL work but you must be consistent and stick to it! I get so excited when my mom comes home and SHE’S excited to tell me that she doesn’t smoke! WOOO…now I cant wait to hear all your stories!
