MOST PEOPLE WOULD LIKE TO THINK THAT THEY ARE IN CHARGE OF/CONTROL OF THEIR THOUGHTS, FEELINGS AND BEHAVIORS, REGARDLESS OF PAST CIRCUMSTANCES OR PRESENT CONDITIONS.
However, much of how we operate on a day to day basis is unconscious, automatic or hard wired and linked to old beliefs. Up to 90% of day to day functioning is driven by subconscious patterns. This is abundantly clear when we look at the challenges that addicts or problem users face.
If we are not willing to learn and to experiment with becoming the CEO of our lives we simply will not make progress in our attempts to sway the subconscious mind. This puts us in a poor position in terms of protecting and caring for the future self.
To do: answer these
questions in your journal:
1. How often am I in charge of/control of my thoughts?
2. How often am I in charge of/control of my feelings?
3. How often am I charge of/control of my behaviors?
4. How often do past experiences automatically impact my choices in the
here and now?
