Use It or Loss It!

June 29, 2017

Success is the result of behavior, which is determined by attitudes, which are formed by conditioning, which takes place through spaced repetition.

Actually, it all starts with the thoughts we think, which will lead to the same choices. The same choices always create the same behaviors, and the same behaviors will always create the same experiences and the same experiences will always create the same emotions and those emotions will drive the same thoughts. Whew! So how do we change?

Through spaced repetition. 

Repetitive learning is the only vehicle to modify conditioning, which alters the attitude that controls behavior, which produces results we want.

Years ago when I wanted to change my negative thinking and behaviors, I would listen to audio tapes in my car when I was driving, watch motivational videos, read inspirational books, keep a gratitude journal, say affirmations, go to seminars, associate with positive people to change and most importantly, hire a coach! You know what? I still do the same things years later.

You must continue to change every day because if you don’t use it, you lose it.

The Power of Positive Thinking

October 28, 2014

There was an article in the Sunday New York Times entitled, The Problem with Positive Thinking. It states that the problem with positive thinking is that it fools the mind into perceiving that we’ve already attained our goal, and weakens our ability to go out and achieve it. Actually, this sounds more like negative advice, keeping people feeling down and  defeated. Every theologian, philosopher, and great thinker have disagreed on many topics, however they all agreed on one. You become what you think about. If your thinking in negative terms, you will get negative results. If you think in positive ones, you will get positive results. In a world where we are bombarded with negative messages all day long, I believe we need to hear, see, and feel positive and uplifting affirmations to help us change our own thinking and heal the world. Yes, you need to set goals, and take action, not merely day dream about something you desire. The article says that positive thinking may calm you down but drains you of energy. I know that when I think positive thoughts, I feel energized and when I am feeling negative, I feel down and have little energy..  The study they conducted to prove their theory, is just that, a theory. I suggested you take the advice of people who are positive minded, associate with positive thinkers and fake it until you make it. After all, if you think you can, you are right. If you think you can’t you are right too!
