We Are Righter than We Think

Tuesday, August 21st, 2018

We all spend so much time second guessing ourselves even when there is no real good reason to do so. It would be beneficial to us to understand that we are really and truly righter than we think.

We think we don’t know as much as we wish we did but in fact know more than we ever thought we could.

We think other people have things all figured out when they know absolutely no more than we do about the best way to live.

It’s always easier to look at someone else’s experience and instinctively know what they should be doing but when it comes right down to it if we were in their shoes would we really make a better choice?

No we would not because we are not them and have absolutely no idea what it is like to be them!

Life is a series of conversations decisions and actions.

We can have a conversation make a decision and take an action that may prove not to be in our best interests and based on that one decision decide that we are not good at knowing what is best for us.

That logic is unfair to us.

Each decision we make is a step forward in life.

The decision may cause us to go backward but if it does in the long run it will help us move forward because of the knowledge and wisdom we will gain from having relived something a second or third time.

The trick is to be aware of the road we are traveling on.

To be aware that we’ve been down this road before and examine why we find ourselves back there again.

Awareness is powerful. The more aware we are the more likely we will lean toward a different decision than we have made in the past.

If we blindly end up at the same crossroads yet don’t see that we are there we have a much bigger problem.

Awareness is key.

Reflection is paramount but not so much reflection that we decide we can’t trust ourselves to move forward.

Just enough reflection and then onward and forward. If your gut thinks the journey you are about to embark on is ill advised it will let you know. Again–awareness is key.

Zero into your awareness.

You are righter than you think.

You’ve got yourself to where you are right now, don’t underestimate your ability to move yourself in a direction that will serve you.

Trust What You Think

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

There are times when we don’t think we are thinking clearly about a variety of things. This may be a result of not making enough choices early in life or because others have regularly questioned the choices we have made.

Our decision making process is unique to us and our situation. It doesn’t make our decision a bad one if another person or ten people wouldn’t make the same choice–it just means our decision is different from what someone else might choose based on multiple factors.

Trust your ability to know what is right for you. It takes practice faith and belief in yourself to do this especially when you’ve been put down and or ridiculed but to move to the life you seek you will need to pull yourself up and out of the mindset that you don’t know what you’re doing or can’t make good choices.

You can but it takes practice. Take it one decision at a time.

What You Think Matters

Monday, March 10th, 2014

Paying attention to what you think becomes more difficult when you’re around other people. Sometimes there is a tendency to push aside what we think in favor of what someone else thinks. We feel they may see things more clearly than we do. A different perspective can be helpful but we need to develop trust in our own instincts. If you’re afraid to speak up and say what you think nobody is going to know who you really are.

How You Perceive Means Everything

No ContactHow you perceive yourself

How you perceive your situation

How you measure your own success

How you view the world and people in it

Determines how your live your life on a daily basis.

Don’t worry about what you think others think about you .

Don’t worry about what you think others think about what you are doing.

If you catch yourself thinking about what you think others are saying about you change your thinking as fast as you can.

Many people refuse to aim high or make a change or back away from or refuse to select a new career because they fear criticism from others.

Others have their opinions and readily offer those opinions up. If you listen more to the opinions of others and less to yourself you are more likely to give up before you’ve given an idea a chance.
