“There is some great news from neuroscientists. Perhaps, you haven’t yet heard it. It has been around for a while but for some reason it hasn’t received the attention it deserves. It IS a big deal and you should know it.
Some people struggle with the concept of personal change or evolution. They worry about how long things take or if they will ever see a new day. Some try, abandon it, and claim their efforts produced nothing. This news gives can give you hope if you’ve ever done this.
Your Thoughts Are Seeds Prune The Weeds Grow More Happiness
You can replace the old chronic mental habits and conditioning with new conditioning. Yup, that is the news! Wow, you are probably thinking, ‘you have already told us that many times. I knew that! Big deal’. Yes, but it IS good news. Scientists call it ‘pruning’.
Just like what one does to plants in a garden you remove the old unwanted mental programs BY replacing them with the new. The old ones actually get starved nutritionally and die off. You no longer travel the old mental pathways because the brain doesn’t use them.
You starved them off by focusing on the new ones you prefer instead. In time, through correct repetition, your brain adopts the new ones. This is WHY managing your thoughts, getting control over your thinking IS so important. You CAN make the changes you want.
Plant Your Feet – Prune Your Fears – Pick Your Future
Your brain accepts WHATEVER you feed it. It will prune what you don’t use. It will grow what you provide for. You can be free from habits that have plagued you when you DELIBERATELY do what it takes to change them; focus on what is wanted and repetition.
That is simple enough. Stop feeding what you don’t want and feed what you do want. This is another reason why gratitude is so powerful. When you focus on why you are blessed, in so many ways, your focus is on the good and the positive. You emphasize it.
You reinforce it by concentrating on it. You feel IT when you appreciate it. Like thoughts and feelings produce more like thoughts and feelings. When you feel like it you ACT accordingly. Your actions become more productive and you produce better results.
Fall In Love With Taking Care Of Yourself – Mind Body And Spirit
The better the results YOU produce the more you change your life. It’s cyclic. Feed what you want as a gardner does. Cut off and remove the old to make more room for new growth. As you do your garden flourishes. Become excited by what you can accomplish!
Make your mental garden and your acutal life beautiful. You can have incredible, powerful and lasting changes! Concentrate only on what you want more of. Take control of your thoughts. You’ll create more good as you focus, have fun, delight, appreciate and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
Have fun, delight, discover and enjoy!
