“Do you know what a filter does? It allows some things through while capturing or not permitting other things through. Think, coffee filter. Water passes through it, releasing the coffee, but preventing the grounds. Grounds are trapped, but you still enjoy the coffee.
We all have filters. We have chronic old habitual filters that prevent us from seeing what is actually there. From these we live out beliefs and thoughts and values we adopted, as our own, from the others around us, while growing up. Some of these filters served us well.
All of the filters serve us. However, not all would be those one might consider desirable. We miss abundance and see lack. We miss love and see hate. We miss the smiles of the day and only see frowns. We miss all the good things and focus, instead, on the bad news.
A Pessimist Sees The Difficulty In Every Opportunity
We live from mental and emotional habits. Chronic, automatic thoughts, feelings and behaviors that may hold us back from getting what we want. We miss opportunities as a result. The goods news is we can always change habits if we want to and are willing to.
You replace an old habit with a new one, the same way the original habit was built. You expose yourself to the concepts, feelings and behaviors repeatedly, for a long enough duration, until the new habit takes hold. Once it does you are on your way to new ways of being.
Research indicates it takes a minimum of 21 days of consistent repetition, or practice, of the new thought, emotional or behavioral habit to begin to take hold. 3 weeks that isn’t that long. Of course, it is just the beginning, but really that is pretty cool. Short, too.
An Optimist Sees The Opportunity In Every Difficulty
3 weeks from now you could be on your way to a new you. You could think, feel and behave more how you want to. You could be, do and have anything different you want. You can transform yourself into a whole new you. Perfect practice makes perfect. Get it?
So what do you want? What could you begin to practice right now, that would make you that better you? What could you begin to imagine, and Act As If, you already have it, that you could rehearse again and again in your mind? What could you make real inside?
Think on this? What is your greatest passion and desire? What do you want more of? Careful now, I didn’t ask what don’t you want, I asked what do you want more of? Why do you want it? What will having that do for you? Can you imagine how life would change?
To Hell With Circumstances – I Create Opportunities
Clarify what you want. It is okay if you said, ‘I don’t want to smoke.’ Just remember, that you want to focus on what you want. ‘I want to be healthier’. You can make it as specific as you can. ‘I want to be able to walk a block easily’. Write down specifically what you want.
Focus on what you want a couple times a day. Close your eyes and imagine already living it. You already have it. It is yours and you are it. From this vantage point feel how it feels to have your greatest desire. Celebrate and accentuate the good feelings. Enjoy it.
Spend a few minutes. 5 at least. Visualizing and affirming. Then go about your day. Remember to focus on what you want as often as possible throughout the day. Write it on a card and carry it with you. Take it out and read it during the day. Before bed, repeat imagining.
You Can’t Live A Positive Life With A Negative Mind
Do this consistently with positive emotions until you make it yours. What you are doing is informing your subconscious mind this is what you intend to make happen. Once your subconscious gets the message it begins aligning your inner resources to make it happen.
It begins working for you. It begins to filter out the useless distracting stuff in favor of opportunities. You become aware of people, events and circumstances that would be beneficial in helping you bring about your great desire. Your brain works for you!
You begin to intuit right choices, and notice things you previously wouldn’t have. It is all because you powerfully focus on what you want to include in your life. Your brain finds the way to do that for you. You supply the message until it gets the message and takes over.
Rule Your Mind Or It Will Rule You – What You Focus On Expands
All the while express gratitude for this ability and the opportunity to make your desires come true. Anything and everything you can find to appreciate, do so. Make a daily list. Affirm and be grateful. Express it silently and verbally. Speak only to bless, heal and prosper.
The more thankful you are for everything, the more you allow more things in. You stop filtering out all the good you have previously missed out on. You, now begin noticing it and receiving it. You allow and accept more incredible moments into your life. Get it?
This is how it all works. Affirm, visualize and repeat your great desire long enough to make it a habit. Sincerely and joyously give thanks and more good comes your way. You make it happen from the inside to the outside. You create your reality. Your brain filters in ways that serve you the best. So, go get what you want. In the meantime, celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
