Make your life about what you want. There is no point taking seriously thoughts that are distancing and distracting you from what you want. All thoughts are, is prior learned information narrated by you to yourself. There is no need to agree with what you feel is distancing you further away from what you want.
Choose to walk away from destructive thoughts. Don’t waste your time interpreting circumstance with thoughts that pull you down.
Your life is created out of your desire. We communicate our desires to ourselves with thoughts that trigger other thoughts. If the triggered thoughts are supportive and positive, we are on our way to fulfilling our desires and creating the life we want.
It is very easy to agree with both the supporting thoughts and discouraging thoughts. Most of the time, we agree with all of our thoughts because we tend to believe everything we tell ourselves using our accumulated knowledge.
If your thoughts do not support what you want, don’t listen to them. We can’t choose not to hear our own thoughts, but we can choose not to listen to them, we don’t have to agree to anything that is against what we want.
Our actions are based on the thoughts that we agree with. Our lack of action is based on the thoughts that we agree with. If you choose not to listen to your discouraging thoughts, with time, they will disappear. The habit of not taking them seriously will become automatic, and they will vanish.
The challenge starts when we feel that we need to replace our old thoughts with other thoughts. For example, if I continuously repeat to myself that I can’t do something, then it is logical for me to want to start to believe that I can. However, when I do that, I still have the feeling that I can’t, and it feels like I’m tricking myself into believing that I can.
We are used to taking action based on knowledge and experience, but when we do not have the experience to back us up there is nothing to hold on to make us feel confident about what we’re about to do. The lack of confidence comes from our fear to fail.
We fear failure because we want to fit into a society that judges failure. We choose to place society’s demands before our own and end up living someone else’s life. The only way out is to stop being afraid of failure, to stop caring about what others think of you by choosing to care about what you want to do with your life.
