Take 10-15 minutes to read the daily blog posts, consider your own life, & journal about your experience.
I believe that KNOWLEDGE IS POWER & so I just want you to soak up the knowledge about how your thoughts affect you & how to lift your thoughts to a higher place.
By choosing higher thoughts every day, for thirty days, you can develop a new & powerful habit that will help you in every area of your life.
– Wear a rubberband for the next 30 days. Every time you catch yourself thinking a negative thought, pop yourself on the wrist. This will help you become more aware of the thoughts that are running through your mind. – Keep a tally on a piece of paper. Put a mark every time you think something negative.
*I’ve changed things up a bit! See the UPDATE below!
I’d like to tell you about something that has changed my perspective when it comes to creating new habits, why the number THIRTY is important, & how it can help you.
Years ago, NASA conducted an experiment & made a surprising discovery. They were trying to determine what kind of effect being in a weightless environment for long periods of time would have on astronauts. So they created goggles that literally flipped their world upside down. The astronauts were required to wear these goggles 24/7. For 25 days, nothing changed, and then, on day 26, one of the astronauts had an amazing thing happen…his world turned right-side up again…even though he was still wearing the goggles! Within the next several days, the same thing happened to the others!
NASA was fascinated by the surprising results & realized that they had discovered an amazing thing…the brain had rewired itself by creating new neural pathways in order to adapt to the new input that was coming in.
They decided to continue this experiment, only this time they allowed the goggles to come off for short periods of time during the 30 days. In these experiments, the neural adaptation did not happen! In other words, it took approximately 30 days of constant, consistent, uninterrupted input of new ideas in order for the brain to create new neural pathways & accept it as normal.
Choose to be consistent over the next 30 days by not missing a day. By doing this, you will be re-wiring your brain to pay more attention to your negative thoughts. You will also be training yourself to turn those negative thoughts into more powerful, positive ones. SO, are you committed?
I’m changing up the challenge! One of my good friends, Alisa Hancock, left a comment below with a link to a video about “catching our thoughts”. After watching it, I’ve decided to change what I told you to do above. Instead of “catching your negative thoughts”, I’m going to have you focus on “counting your positive ones”. Watch THIS VIDEO & you’ll see why…(seriously, go watch it, it’ll make you smile)…CLICKING CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
