“There is nothing more important to true growth than realizing that you are not the voice of the mind - you are the one who hears it.” ~Michael A. Singer
As a society, we have been taken over by our thinking. We identify with our thoughts so fully at times that we get completely swept up and carried away - living more in our mind than within our actual life. Our thoughts determine how we view, interpret, and respond to everything we encounter.
As helpful and amazing as our mind is, it also causes much of the unhappiness in our lives.
Your mind seems to love to compare you with others and point out all the ways in which they are better. It makes assumptions about how others are thinking or feeling about you that are, more often than not, inaccurate. It causes you to take other peoples' actions personally when they likely have nothing to do with you.
Are you nodding your head yet?
Our thoughts are so convincing! We often accept them as "truth" and in this way they are given free rein to create our reality.
We spend so much of our time completely immersed in our thinking. It tends to keep us focused on the past, while at the same time, worried about the future. The present moment is seen as simply a stepping stone to "something else" and it causes us to miss out on so much.
What stories are running on repeat in your mind? What is your mind telling you you can't do? What's it telling you about what other people think or you? What is it telling you about the world around you?
What does it all come down to? Don't believe everything your mind tells you! It has evolved to keep you alive, not to make you happy. While it is well-intentioned in wanting to keep you "safe", it also works to keep you "small", limiting your ability to make and maintain positive change.
Mindset Coaching will help you to gain fresh, new insight into how your mind works. It's by developing a deeper level of understanding that a real shift can happen and lasting, core-level change is possible. Changing your relationship with your thinking has a powerful ripple effect into your emotions, behaviors and habits, relationships, self-perception, and more.
