Trapped in the jar?

Monday, October 03, 2011


Have you ever seen an animal reach into a container and grasp an object with its hand or mouth and not be able to remove it from the container?

 

As thinking people, we know the animal can let go of the object, remove its hand or head, tip the container upside down, and let the object fall out.

 

Metaphorically, how often do we find ourselves in similar situations - situations where we have grabbed onto something and will not let it go, causing us to be stuck or even trapped.  We continue to hold onto the person, thought, idea, image, situation, belief or ???

 

The idea is that we are crippling ourselves by hanging on, not letting go.  While crippled in this manner, we are not able to get or accept other gifts coming our way.  Our tight fisted grasp keeps us “trapped in the jar”. 

 

We must let go of the past – of the thoughts holding us back – of the need to be right, before we can accept the gifts of now.

 

Use your Fearless Thinking skills to learn the lessons in your life.  Then let go of the person, thought, idea, image, situation, belief or ???, and “take your hand out of the jar”.

 

Be a Fearless Thinker.

Mirror - rorriM

Monday, September 26, 2011
                                                                               

My life reflects my beliefs and my consistent thoughts.  My powerful mind produces for me what I believe and gives me what I focus on. 


When I look in a mirror I see me.  I see me reflected back at me.  When I look at my life I see my consistent thoughts and beliefs reflected back at me. 


We reap what we sow.


If we don’t like what we see in our life, we must sow different seeds.  We must focus our consistent thoughts and pictures on what we want in our life, not what we don’t want.  Our focus must be on the affirmative, not the negative.  If our life reflects sadness, anxiety and/or lack, guest what?  We are sowing those seeds.


If we want our life to reflect joy, happiness and abundance, guess what?  We need to start sowing consistent thoughts and visions of joy, happiness and abundance.


Use your Fearless Thinking skills to change what is reflected in your life.

 

Become a Fearless Thinker.

Interpreting an Interpretation

Monday, September 19, 2011


Events occur in our lives.  We interpret each event as good, bad or neutral.  We then self-talk (one of my Fearless Thinking topics) the event and our interpretation of the event.  The continual self-talk eventually creates a belief.  We act according to our beliefs.

 

Our interpretations are strongly influenced by our age and experience, our current mood and several other factors.  This implies that each event can be interpreted in different ways, depending on what factors are present at the time.

 

How are you interpreting the events in your life? 

 

Suppose a “court certified” interpreter interpreted the words of someone speaking another language through their own filters, experiences and/or prejudices.  The words and meaning of the interpreter would be different than intended by the person being interpreted.  Consequently, the decisions made would be based on the interpretation, not on what the person being interpreted actually said.

 

What kind of reporting is going on in the courtroom in your head?   Do you interpret based on emotion or by using your critical thinking skills?

 

Since we are emotional beings, we will have emotional reactions to events in our lives.  And once the emotional reaction has been appropriately felt and expressed, we then start using our critical thinking skills to better interpret the event.

 

Start using your Fearless Thinking skills to critically think your interpretations.

Connect the Dots

Monday, September 12, 2011

 

Our emotions are actually delayed revelations of our thoughts. 

 

Thoughts are power.  They manifest themselves.  Our challenge is that often, we don’t make the connection between thought and outcome.

 

We have the thought, and before the emotion is felt, our mind is on to another thought.  So, we usually don’t see the connection.

 

In other words, we have the thought, and the feelings/emotions are slower to manifest.   

 

And, our current feeling/emotion influences subsequent thoughts, causing either a downward spiral or an upward soaring, until something acts as a stopping force.

 

Use your Fearless Thinking skills to quickly identify and take charge of your thoughts so they serve you in your relationships, increasing your business and every area of your life.

 

Be a Fearless Thinker.
