A Reflection of Your Mind

STOP thinking you ARE what you think you’ve BEEN

We cannot see our reflection in running water. It is only in still water that we can see.
– Chinese Proverb

Use your imagination for just a minute and envision yourself as a computer… Right now most of your “programs” are running off of what has already been installed.

How did the programs get there?
Starting from the day you were born, your brain soaked up all it could – learning about the the world and what is happening in it, the universe, family, relationships, trust, health, work, money, emotions, what’s possible, what’s not possible, what has value, what doesn’t, what’s right, what’s wrong, why you are here, etc.

Who influenced them?
Family, culture, media, peers, institutions, games, music, stories, play and sports all carry both implicit and explicit messages about how the world works and how the world “is”. By the time we reach the age of ten, most of our beliefs have already been formed. From each of those core beliefs, grew thousands of other beliefs. But hang on—it doesn’t stop there!

Your personality is made up of how you act, how you think and how you feel. And more importantly, your personality creates your personal reality. By the time you reach your thirties, 95% of your personality is purely habit. Beliefs, perceptions, emotional behaviors, attitudes… all functioning like an automatic computer program.

Don’t believe me? Answer this:
Do you ever find yourself having the same thoughts, that lead to the same choices, that lead to the same behaviors, that end up producing the same experiences, that create the same emotions, that lead to the same thoughts… Are you getting dizzy yet?

Over time, this circle of thinking to feeling… and feeling to thinking… is memorized, and actually hardwiring your brain and emotionally conditioning your body. In other words, it becomes a habit. A habit is when your conscious mind (thought) and your subconscious mind (emotion) are working in congruence with your body (action).

{FYI: This is why so many people fail at programs designed to enhance your life through positive thinking. If you’ve been feeling badly for most of your life… thinking positively is going in direct opposition against your basic programming!}

The good news is, you are not hardwired to be a certain way for the rest of your life. You are not doomed by your genes—your biology is only a reflection of your mind, and your brain is wondrously adaptable. You were created with all the necessary equipment needed for greatness, and everything that has happened in your life so far had to happen exactly as it did – so that you could get to where you’re going next…

So what do you think?
