If we want to see transformation in our lives and in the world around us, then we have to change. People often wait for their circumstances to change but real transformation starts from within. You've probably heard the saying "If you keep on doing what you're doing, you're going to keep on getting what you're getting" and this is the truth. If we want to move forward in life, we have to change and the most important area to change is our thinking.
Do you get aggravated by certain types of people? Do you feel frustrated often? How do you react when things don't go as smoothly as you would like? There is always another way to view the day's events that will bring us peace instead of frustration and stress.
The mindset we've developed over the years is like a pair of glasses through which we interpret events and circumstances. In order for us to move forward in life, we must change our mindset. Albert Einstein put it like this:
Imagine putting your old thinking on the shelf for the time being, like a pair of well-worn shoes, while you try on a new pair of shoes. Like breaking in new shoes, it might feel uncomfortable for a bit. Slowly but surely, we will enjoy the peace and freedom new ways of thinking will bring us. I can assure you, once you start on this journey, you will never want to go back to your old shoes.
Science used to say that the brain cannot be changed, but now we know better. We now know the brain can be restructured and regenerated. To find out more about neuroplasticity, read this article. Keep in mind that the brain and the mind are two different things but are critically linked together.
Step #2 asks us to be open to seeing and processing life in a brand new way. As we unfold the next steps together, how we do this will become more clear but for now ask yourself this question: "Am I ready and willing to change my thinking?"
If the answer to this question is yes, then you are ready to begin the adventure of a lifetime. You will be amazed at how your life will begin to change. You will see more miracles, experience more peace and joy, and see more of your dreams come true.
