The Effort Comes With Positive Thinking & Possibilities

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Making the effort and thinking about the possibilities is more challenging than being fatalistic and accepting the status quo.

Accepting the existing state takes far less effort because we don’t have to do anything. It’s more comfortable and allows the brain to relax. It’s as if we’re telling the brain–that’s okay, it was just a thought, now go back to sleep.

The real effort comes with positive thinking and new possibilities. Thinking about change allows the brain to play.We get to think about the when, where, why, how. We think about the what if… Instead of immediately nixing a new idea there’s a pause and then–why not???

Unfortunately the why not is often the stopping point because that’s when the brain tricks us into thinking backward with the fatal it’s too…it’s too expensive, crazy, risky, hard.

Granted, there are times when it’s too does give us a reality check but how often does it just give us an excuse for staying in a situation that makes us miserable.

Just for today force yourself to silence the it’s too...

Today jump from why not to here’s one way I could do it or here are two ways.

Allow yourself to get excited. Explore, plan, investigate. Seek solutions rather than fuel problems. Change it will never work to THIS IS POSSIBLE!
