Please use your Magic Words!

I’m teaching my children to listen to the words they say because our words create our reality.

The other day, my daughter told me, “I can’t find my raincoat.”

I said, “What do you mean you can’t find it? Use your magic words.”

Everything changed when she asked me, “Could you help me find my raincoat?”

I told her to look in the closet and there it was. While she was saying can’t, she couldn’t. But when she used positive words and changed her attitude, her reality changed.

If you want to change your life then you have to change your words.

This is how you’re going to live the life of your dreams: with magic words. Only with magic words can you implement those dreams and make them happen.

Words are the programming of the subconscious. Whatever you say, you breathe into reality. Take a moment and ask yourself, “How do I want to live my life? What do I have to do to make my dreams happen?”

If you keep repeating, “I am not good at running…:” will you even try to run? No. Then how will you ever be a runner? It begins with habitual thoughts. It begins with words.

Magic words also allow us to plan for the future. We have the ability to create the future we want. When we plan for the future, we’re not stuck in the now. We’re not stuck in the past. You need to be able to use your magic words so you can time machine yourself right into your future.

We live our lives one day at a time because we don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow. Yet we are constantly trying to predict the future anyway, even though it’s impossible to do so.

But if you take a step back, you stop the predictions and start living in the present.
If instead you ask yourself, “What’s next? What can I do that’s different than if I used my default programming? What can I do that’s completely out of the ordinary?”

It’s uncomfortable to be out of the ordinary. And most people don’t like to be uncomfortable. People think it’s dangerous to be uncomfortable.

But do you know what’s dangerous? Thinking it’s dangerous to be uncomfortable. It’s normal to be uncomfortable. It’s important to be uncomfortable. You have to celebrate your discomfort! Why? Because discomfort gets things done.

Your desires aren’t going to be realized by living at your comfort level. No one ever got what they wanted by being comfortable. People get what they want by being out of their comfort zone and doing things they’re scared of. By doing things that are challenging. By accomplishing things everyone else said were impossible.

But when faced with the impossible, you said, “It’s possible.” And you did it. You proved them wrong.

When everyone else said, “No, this is not my job,” you said, “Not only is it my job but it’s my responsibility. “

It’s okay to have a habit of decision but instead of just deciding, choose. That’s the next level. But you can choose. You do have options. If you don’t realize that you have choices then you won’t be able to take your life to the next level. You’ll just be stuck in that vicious cycle of that same old, same old. Remember, what you resist persists.

And until you become aware of where your options came from, you won’t be able to use your magic words. And magic words can change everything.

Your Head Will Do Its Own Thing If You Let It

20170416_093401

“What am I missing?” wait who said that? “I know I must be missing something. I just do not feel right.” is that me saying that in my head?

We have voices in our head that ask questions and give opinions about everything. Imagine if you can read a transcript of all the things that are going on in your head each day.

What do you think you would see there? Are you happy with those thoughts? Ideas? Opinions?

Imagine if you knew that you can change those thought bubbles into the thoughts of your liking. Into the ideal thoughts that will create the ideal actions for you to live the life of your dreams.

If you let your head go on auto pilot, Your head will do its own thing and most of the time it’s not pretty because it wants you to survive.

While coaching an entrepreneur recently I asked him about the thoughts in his head and he said they were there to protect him, that it’s important to listen to the thoughts and let them direct him.

That is certainly one way to live your life. You can choose to listen to every thought in your head and follow the advice of your brain.

Will that make you happy? Will that give you the power? It might or it might not.

If you want to have more power and more happiness you need to take control of that opinion creating machine and realize that all the thoughts you have in your head are there to protect you from dying and we are going to die anyway. So why not live a little?

When we are so obsessed with dying we forget to live and in the service of surviving we give up thriving.

What does it look like to thrive? Well if you are inspiring yourself by taking the right actions to maximize your life. You might call that thriving. Or you might consider suffering thriving. It all depends on the programming that was put into your head and by whom? Not by you!

You are not your own programmer, you have been programmed by circumstance.

As human beings, we want to avoid pain and we seek pleasure. It pains me to see people suffer without knowing that they can get out of the suffering. Sure you need to go through pain to be able to grow but do you need to suffer through it? I heard someone once say that pain is not optional but suffering is a choice.

You suffer when you think you should not be feeling this pain, when it’s not fair! When it’s an injustice and life “Should” be different and there is nothing you can do to change. When you are the victim, you suffer.

What if you are the most powerful person on the planet. Can you suffer? What if you had access to everything and anything. Can you ever suffer?

No, you can only have compassion for those who suffer.

How do you take control of your reality? It begins by realizing and becoming conscious to the fact that you can change your thoughts and you can change your words and as a result you can change your actions which will create any reality you dream up.

Now that you know you can change your thoughts, will you change them or will you let your head do its own thing?
