Most people are frustrated with the results they have in life. They are not satisfied where they are and want more but they don’t know how to go about getting it or changing their position in life. It can be a very challenging thing especially since we were not taught how to do it. The bottom line is that it’s not your fault but that still doesn’t make us feel any better because we still are not getting what we want.
If you’re not getting what you want in your life, the question you have to ask is, “How do I break out of that negative (or failure or mediocrity) cycle? How do I escape from that seemingly endless loop?”
You break out of it by becoming aware of what you are thinking. You become conscious of your thoughts and beliefs and the results they are producing in your life. If you are not achieving the results you desire you use that discomfort to make the decision to choose new thoughts and ideals. You become aware that some of your beliefs are not serving you, so you choose to change them. Even though there’s a cycle, once you become aware of it you can take charge of it and take control of your life.
Sometimes you get to a point that’s so painful that you just absolutely have to break out of it. Likewise, the influence of a strong role model or caring mentor who sees your potential, takes an interest in you and guides you can have a profound effect and change your life dramatically, sometimes literally overnight.
Also, a radical experience such as the death of a loved one or the loss of position or wealth can cause anyone to question their beliefs about who they are and what life means. You can have an “aha” experience and rise to a whole new level of awareness in a moment.
Just the simple realization of the facts you’re reading right now, facts you hadn’t known before or weren’t ready to hear, can cause you to question your limiting beliefs and empower you to break out of the cycle.
This is the key I’d like you to understand right now. This conditioning happens randomly in all of us and will continue to produce the same results over and over until we start examining and questioning our beliefs on purpose.
Let me ask you a question…
Are your beliefs serving you and empowering you, or are they debilitating you and keeping you from getting what you deserve out of life? It’s time to get really honest with yourself.
Until you received this information, you could say that the parts of your life you didn’t like were not your fault. Your mindset and all the negative ideas you’d been fed over the years were running your life. And you would be 100% correct! The only thing now is that excuse won’t work any longer, because now you are getting the principle based knowledge and learning how to take charge of your life and create the life you truly desire and deserve.
At this point you might be wondering, well, how in the heck did those beliefs and thought patterns find their way into my being?
According to Anthony Robbins, everything we do in our lives, we do out of our need to either avoid pain or our desire to gain pleasure.
For instance, if you received positive reinforcement from your parents, you found pleasure in their praise and accepted it as true. You described yourself as the smart girl or boy, gifted musician, good student, great athlete or maybe the compassionate kid who helped others.
On the other hand, say your mother had complications during pregnancy and became fearful that you would be born with health issues. She might’ve always seen you as a weak child, susceptible to illness, and that feeling was continually reinforced in you. You assumed it to be the “truth” and today you may have allergies and health problems that stem from an old belief that began before you were even born.
What I’m saying is, we’ve all been conditioned. Some of it was good and some of it was not so good. But the key is, now that you are becoming aware of it, you are in charge and can change your mindset. In fact, you can begin reprogramming your mind on purpose and recreate yourself exactly the way you want to be, with the lifestyle you desire to have. When you understand this truth and take control of your mind, you become master over your circumstances and start creating the life you want on purpose.
