This is a very good blog from author Noah St. John www.noahstjohn.com
Your life is a reflection of your thoughts – what I call the thought-seeds you plant and give energy to.
More precisely, your life is a reflection of the unconscious assumptions you make about life and your relationship to it.
For example, if you grew up in an environment where there wasn’t much money, you would probably assume that making money is hard, and that’s just the way it is.
And because you made this assumptionunconsciously, you probably wouldn’t even realize that you’re holding on to it in the first place.
If you could find a mechanism that could record the thought-seeds you’re planting on the inside and play them back to you on the outside, it might sound something like this…
- Why am I so broke?
- Why don’t I have enough money?
- How come I’m not more successful?
- How come I can never get ahead?
- Why do other people have so much more money than I do?
Well, a mechanism does exist that records and reflects your subconscious thought-seeds.
That mechanism is called your life!
So here you are, unknowingly asking yourself these negative questions, which lead to disempowering assumptions, which lead to you not believing you can reach your goals.
What do you think the answers would be to the negative questions in the example I just gave you?
The answers would be things showing up in your life that reflect the disempowering questions you’ve been unconsciously asking.
For example, if you’ve been unknowingly asking, Why am I so unhappy?…
The answers will show up as you being unhappy, no matter how many good things happen to you.
If you’ve been unconsciously asking, Why don’t I have enough money?…
The answers will show up as your lack of money, no matter how hard or how long you work.
And if you’ve been unwittingly asking, Why can’t I lose weight?…
The answer will show up as your not being able to lose weight, no matter how many diet and exercise programs you try.
I call these dassumptions—a portmanteau of disempowering and assumptions.
When you carry around these dassumptions,your life becomes a reflection of them.
That’s why all of the goal-setting in the world won’t work when this is the case—because you simply don’t believe that you can reach your goals in the first place.
Take Action Challenge:
Stop assuming you can’t. Start assuming you can.
