I think it is safe to say that many people are looking for more time and money freedom. People set goals to make these a reality but alas many people are still struggling to obtain them. This causes great confusion because we don’t know what is controlling our behavior and causing the results we don’t want thus leaving a gap between what we know and what we do.
The majority of people go to school and these schools give us valuable knowledge. That knowledge goes into our conscious mind but that doesn’t mean we are going to act on it. Basically we have superior knowledge and get inferior results. “Education does not mean teaching people what they do not know. It means teaching them to behave as they do not behave. “ John Ruskin
School never taught us how to alter our old paradigms. What are paradigms? They are our habitual behavior patterns held in our subconscious mind, our programmed mind. Our likes and dislikes, the picture we hold of ourselves, our opinions about money and opportunity. We were programmed not to think outside of our five senses.
Think of a time in your life where you did things you didn’t want to do and this produced results that you didn’t want to get. You did them even though you knew that what you were doing would get you results that you didn’t want. Or even though you might have known what to do to get the results that you did want.
Many people experience this around diets. They know they should not have that piece of cake because they are on a diet but they have it anyway. They know what to do in order to lose weight, but there seems to be an unconscious gap between the knowing and the doing. This is also experienced with our goals around time and money.
This type of behavior is not productive and it is caused by paradigms. If you don’t change your paradigms, you won’t get the results you are looking for. Paradigms are between the knowing and the doing. Our perception, our creativity, our effectiveness, productivity, the way we use our time and our logic are controlled by our paradigms.
What changes our paradigms is illogical. What we repeat over and over becomes fixed in our subconscious mind. This repetition could be considered illogical. But it is these fixed ideas that control our behavior. So if we want a new behavior we need to change the fixed idea or the paradigm.
Support the results you want through writing. Writing causes thinking, thinking creates an image, the image stirs emotions, emotion causes action, and the action sets up a reaction. This leads to new and improved results. It is the action/reaction that alters our condition, circumstances or environment in our lives and we call these our results. So if you are really serious about changing your results with anything you desire, there is power in the written word.
Dare to Dream!
