Today I want to talk to you about the “inspiration station” of your mind.
Your mind is a wonderful thing, but like any good thing, it can be misused.
Are you using your mind to think self-defeating thoughts? Do imagine negative scenarios that may occur if everything doesn’t quite work out?
“And another thing…”
Have you ever found yourself wondering what it could be like to go back into a conversation you had with an adversary, and to change the script? Maybe the argument would have gone better if we would have said this in response to that thing they said. I think we all have done that, and that, my friend, is called “changing the script”. So why do we do this? Well, there is something within all of us that seeks:
Resolution and Closure
We earnestly want to go back and make the situation (such as, a discussion) go in our favor. That’s why do so much “script wrting” (or rewriting if you will) in our heads.
All creative people do this and if you are one of them, I have an exercise for you.
Instead of rewriting the script of your past, begin–
writing your script of tomorrow.
The next time you find your self absent-mindedly talking to the person from the past who is no longer there. or thinking about what thing you could have done differently in life, fast forward to the future (rather than the past) and write your script.
This is a very powerful exercise because your spirit hears what your mind is saying, and your mind hears what your mouth says.
Walk around the room and declare what you would like for your life to be like in ten years, but speak it as though it has happened.
Words have power, so be careful not to speak out anything you don’t want to have happen. Be sure to “think big” and to talk faith, not doubt.
