Author Bryan Tracy wrote a piece on the subconscious mind and the experience of breakthrough. He reports that all of our habits of thoughts and behaviors are stored in our subconscious mind. In fact, according to Mr. Tracy the subconscious mind has memorized all of our comfort zones and works to keep us safe and secure within those borders.
Think About it: Have you ever experienced the thought of doing something different from what you’re accustomed to and immediately anxiety sets in? Thoughts of fear and doubt are so thick in the atmosphere that you finally just turn around and retreat to familiar borders? Well there you go, you’ve experienced the pull of your subconscious mind, dictating your breakthrough, insisting that your move forward, poses some sort of threat to you. Hear my voice of encouragement whisper in your ear (today) It is time to break free from the hold of your subconscious mind. Years of fortified borders and limited thinking has kept you from becoming your SUPERIOR SELF.
Superior men and women are always stretching themselves, pushing themselves out of their comfort zones. They are very much aware of how quickly the comfort zone ( in any area of life) becomes a rut. Superior men and women know that complacency is the great enemy of creativity and manifested visions. What is one thing that has you stuck in the comfort zone? Write that one thing down and make one (specific) conscious decision as to how you can push toward breaking free. That’s an action item for you…..Do it! Embrace the Awkwardness and Take the LEAP – Happy Thursday
THIS MONTH we stress that the fight for EQUALITY continues. The fight for a better future for women existing and women to come, a future where women can reach pay parity, be free of sexual harassment, discrimination, domestic violence and much more. During International Women’s month, join us in saluting women in your life………If you are woman give yourself a hand (treat yourself) for all that you do to keep your sphere of influence together. The following are three women who blazed the trail as women of purpose and no doubt, standing out as examples of greatness to all of us.
Marie Curiewho “won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1903 and in Chemistry in 1911, making her the first woman to ever win the prize and the first person to win it twice. In 2020, worldwide search interest for “women in science” hit a 10-year high as women scientists dominated in fields that had historically excluded them.“
Madam C. J. Walker, was born Sarah Breedlove, is “one of the first women in the world to earn more than $1 million through the business she founded in 1910, the Madam C. J. Walker Manufacturing Company. Not only did Walker overcome sexist ideas when she built her business, she also battled racial discrimination and played a key role in the movement to end racism, colonialism, and imperialism, setting an example for the many women of today who are fighting the same battles.”
Junko Tabei was a “Japanese mountaineer, an author, and a teacher. In 1975, she became the first woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest, and before her death in 2016, she also became the first woman to ascend the Seven Summits, the highest peak on every continent. Today’s women athletes continue to break new ground, raising the bar for women and men alike.”
All of the highlights above were provide by Google and their efforts to celebrate women all month long. Thanks to Google and other supporters who recognize the importance of empowering women. I have also included links below for women looking to start businesses, or looking to partner with community serve organizations…….. This year, #ChoosetoChallenge is the theme for International women’s day/month, with a call to action for us to all step up and challenge inequity.
I am more convinced than ever before that our thought process has everything to do with how we approach our every day journey. Embrace with me for a moment, the CONCEPT that everything perceived (positive/negative) in the natural realm has its origin in the supernatural. The inner most depth of our thoughts become manifested actions and in some ways reactions. I have included for visual affirmation & confirmation the following quote by Frank Outlaw which also happens to be one of my favorites;
Watch your thoughts, they become words; watch your words, they become actions; watch your actions, they become habits; watch your habits, they become character; watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.
Now let’s be honest, this process of positive thoughts takes practice and lots of it. Contrary to society’s quick fix for everything, this is not a step-by-step process that you can complete and be done with in a weeks time. Instead, it involves a lifelong commitment to looking inside oneself and willingness to challenge negative patterns, thoughts, and actions that we’ve fortified over the years.
By doing so, The law of attraction prevails – the belief that thoughts are a form of energy and that positive energy attracts success in all areas of life, including health, finances, and relationships. Let me stress that being a positive thinker is not about ignoring reality in favor of aspirational thoughts. However, it is more about taking a proactive approach to life.
I am reminded of Proverbs 23 verse 7a that states “For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” As with any change we should begin by recognizing the truth and that truth is non other than, “our thoughts create our reality”. Whether it is our health, relationships, or financial well-being we must learn to control the nature of our dominant. Here are some tips for creating a better future and as a result reaching those unmet goals;
Implement a time for daily prayer/meditation.
Regularly – List five things that you are grateful for right now.
Don’t play the victim. You create your life—take responsibility.
Surround yourself with positive (LIKE MINDED) people.
Avoid negative Self-Talk.
