Your beliefs become your thoughts
Your thoughts become your words
Your words become your actions
Your actions become your habits
Your habits become your character
Your character become your destiny
I spent the past seven blogs breaking down this quote and today I want to finish this series by showing you how to put it all back together again. We all look at our lives and find things we wish were different and wish we could change, but it all seems so overwhelming. We don’t know where to start so we sometimes do nothing, and justify who we have become and where we are in life.
Here is how the change process works. All you need to do is choose one area to work on first and then all the other areas will change and shift automatically to align with the change you made in that one area. It does not matter where you start. Let’s say I choose to start focusing on the words I speak over myself. As I being to speak positive, loving words, my thoughts will automatically begin to be more loving toward myself. I will begin to believe I am worth loving. I will start doing more loving things for myself. I will begin to create habits that are good for me. People will begin to see me as a person with loving character traits. And my destiny will begin to shift into a more positive direction. To make this happen I did not have to spend enormous amounts of time focusing on each of these seven areas, I just chose one area to focus on and all the other areas over time came into alignment. I could have chosen to begin with habits instead of words, and the same change would have happened.
Sometimes as you go through this change process you may feel stuck. This is because your beliefs, thoughts, words, actions, habits, character and destiny are already hardwired in your brain by the time you reach adulthood due to your past choices and life experiences. It helps to have someone you are accountable to, someone to encourage and help you through the change process. Don’t be afraid to seek out professional counseling. We are trained in how to re-program you mind so you can live the life you really want, rather than the one pre-programmed by your past.
You have far more control over your life than you realize.
Choose to get out of the blame and victim game and take responsibility for your life.
You can do it.
