My previous post referred to Habit 2 from the book 7 Habits of Highly effective people. I spoke about how Stephen Covey explains that we can all take action and re-script our lives. He suggests that we should all have a mission statement in life. They encourage you to think deeply about your life, to get clarity on what is important to you in life and your real thoughts and feelings. A mission statement will help to provide direction and provides the mental creation of your desired life.
I enjoyed doing my mission statement and answering questions I have not really stopped to ask. It was very interesting! To find out how to make your mission statement and get assistance Click here
For some of us this process won’t be too easy. Stephen explains that we live in a society, which is dominated by the left side of the brain…
I am so excited! I have been exploring the teachings of Abraham Hicks for a few months now and I finally think I am getting the hang of it. I was making it a bit too difficult at first (of ‘course I was), by actually changing every negative thought I had. I realize now that by focusing so much attention to negative behavior, I was only attracting more struggles with my negative patterns. I now realize that it is more about paying attention to your feelings and what they are telling you about any individual moment in time. It’s about recognizing what you don’t want by being aware of the source of the feelings connected to those things.
Over and over again Abraham has said “By knowing what we don’t want, we can better understand what it is that we do want”.
If you change the way you think about yourself, life and the world around you, then you can change anything you desire to change. This applies to jobs, money, relationships, etc. Change your mind, change your life!
