CHANGE YOUR MEANING
We may not realize it, but we make decisions everyday, all day long. Every second of the day, we have thoughts and these thoughts are shaping our decisions. And we do it unconsciously.
Once we have a thought, we immediately go to what does that MEAN to us?
* Pain, pleasure, work, fun, happy, sad, regret, family, work, time-consuming.
But how do our thoughts instantly become feelings? How did we attach a MEANING to all “things/events”?
What “things/events “MEAN” to us is always determined by what we compare or contrast them to. This process gives us a feeling and in turn, drives our focus, our thoughts and ultimately, our actions.
It is Monday morning and you have a busy day, and you look outside and it’s snowing? Can you feel that?
It is the July long weekend and you check the weather and it is sunny, perfectly warm and no rain or clouds in sight? Can you feel that?
You go to that awesome restaurant on a busy Saturday and you’re hungry, and there is no line. Or there is a massive line. Can you feel that?
That is MEANING- it has a feeling and it can change your state and mood instantly.
If we learn to apply a positive meaning in a not-so-good situation, we can change the MEANING and create a more positive perspective. We can enhance our focus and actions. Need a clearer definition?
Have you ever been in the ZONE? Of course you have, we all have. The ZONE is that total head-to-toe incredible vibe and energy that makes us THINK BIG, CONQUER, AND MOVE ANYTHING out of the way. We are mentally empowered and we can go through almost anything and, feel good. When we are in the ZONE, we love it. We want more of it. We ask ourselves, “Why don’t I feel like this all the time?”
When you are in the ZONE, you apply a more positive MEANING to things and you see things very clearly and as they really are. When we feel good, we look at things with the “glass ½ full”. When we feel bad, we look at things as “glass ½ empty”. How do we make ourselves feel good all the time?
