“I like to be challenged to think and challenge others to think. Thinking is a rare act for most people these days. Especially these days, but for all of time. Most of us live from memories. We run old mental movies in our mind. The same old memories and thoughts.
We run the same repetitive self-talk we’ve repeated endlessly for years. It never changes but the days change. We rag on ourselves the same way. We blame others and circumstances the same way. Events and people change but our thoughts stay the same.
We live from old preconditioned thoughts we think over and over, believing them to be ‘free thought’. They aren’t. They are rules, beliefs, and opinions we accepted while growing up. We bought into them from parents, peers, experience and media of all types.
The Mind Is As Strong As Its Weakest Think
We are socially conditioned. We think we should go to school, get a job, work 40 hours a week, marry, have kids, be a good citizen because we have bought into that. In and of itself, none of that is not necessarily not good, but it can be if you accept it without choices.
Thinking and regurgitating our old pre-conditioining are two separate things. Opinion versus fact are not the same. Most of us accept opinion as fact. This is why we are so easily deceived. We don’t bother to check for ourselves. How often do you vet sources?
We believe it because someone said it, or we heard it, read it, saw it on the internet, or TV or in movies and popular songs but we don’t fact check it. We elect officials off of platitudes and slogans and media image campaigns without checking first if they are any good.
You Become What You Think About Most Frequently
We accept so much at face value because it is repeated to us over and over again. We affirm what we are told numerous times. The same applies to our own thinking. We don’t check to actually see whether it is valid or not. Most of our own thinking is broken.
We just believe it is because we ‘think’ it. We shouldn’t! Most of our thoughts are old accepted conditioning that is now habit to think. We do it automatically. We react from habit not from new thought. We are conditioned to do this. We can change, but only if we want.
In order to change we must first become aware of it. We must recognize what we have been doing. We need to take responsibility for it and become aware when we do it next. This requires vigilance and dedication. It may seem difficult, and it can be, but gets easier.
To Change You Must Make The Unconscious Conscious – Be Aware
If you don’t do it you will continue the way you always have. If that is great and okay with you then continue. If it isn’t and you prefer to change and live more fully, abundantly, happily, heathy, wealthy and more successful then you need to make changes now. Don’t wait!
It doesn’t get easier or better the longer you wait. It only gets worse. Realize now, that you are where your thoughts have brought you. Take responsibility for everything you have and don’t have in your life. No one else is responsible for thinking your thoughts but you.
To change become aware when you find yourself thinking old negative, less than glorious, dis-empowering thoughts and change them to more powerful positive thoughts. Continue to do this until you make the new choices, the new thoughts, habit. Get it?
If You Think You Can Or You Think You Can’t You Are Right
It is up to you and no one else. So stop blaming, excusing, and complaining and start telling the stories you want to be told. Create positive life experiences, new goals and dreams you achieve. Live, laugh, and love more. Practice gratitude. This is how you begin to change. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

One thought on “It Sucks But You Aren’t Thinking Your Own Thoughts!”
I totally agree with you there…
It does happen that we often think of ourselves that which has been heard by us in our environment …
I had written about this issue too in my post “Raptures of I and Me”
Thank you for the thoughtful read!
