February 2: Practice

They say that practice makes perfect!  Repetition in anything will make us better at that particular thing.  What if what we are repetitiously and consistently practicing isn’t useful or helpful?  What if there is something better, or more optimal, for us to be practicing, that may empower us to live a much more enjoyable, pleasurable, and expansive life?

In my personal life, I have mastered poverty.  I practiced poor relationships and mastered that.  I mastered decades of certain ways of being that resulted in severe depression and hopelessness, and now, I am practicing and mastering their opposites.  Experiencing contrasts is a gift of life, and results don’t lie.  What we practice, we MASTER, and we can choose to change what we practice at ANY time.

That which we believe to be true BECOMES OUR TRUTH.  Our brains have a hardware device installed to seek out and support ANYTHING we choose to believe and focus on.  It is called the RAS (Reticular Activating System.)

It is entirely up to US to decide what is best for US.  Experimentation in life is the key to experiencing new things.  CONTRASTING EXPERIENCES allow us to quickly learn what we do or do not want more of.

One helpful tool I have discovered is to ONLY follow, mirror, and learn from those, who ALREADY HAVE what you want, and who are ALREADY living a life in alignment with the life you want for yourself.  PERFECT PRACTICE makes perfect.  It matters a great deal WHAT we repetitiously, consistently practice.

Mastery over anything is accomplished through repetition and consistent practice.

Let’s EMBRACE the failures and challenges, and let’s call it all PRACTICE.

Let’s embrace our imperfections and call them all PRACTICE.

If we are repeating a behavior that is destructive it becomes a habit and we become better and better at it.

If we are repeating a behavior that is creating a better version of our self, it becomes a habit and we become better and better at it.


Each day we wake up we get to choose what we focus on and what we are becoming better and better at.  It is entirely our responsibility.  It’s our choice and our choice alone what we choose to believe and become.  We are creating our self with everything we think, say, and do.  I think it is important to choose to practice, repeat, focus upon, and expend energy towards, ONLY the things that we want to become MORE of.

As we practice these things, we will watch and see as miracles happen in our lives and everything seems to eventually fall into place for us.  We can choose to practice the things which will make us more valuable and help and empower us add more value into not just our lives, but the lives of those around us.

Perceivably bad things may happen, but they won’t bother us as much as they used to.  They will no longer be our main focus, because now we are concentrating and focusing on creating.  As we change, so do our perceptions and beliefs about what is happening.  Instead of things happening TO us, we begin to realize that everything has been happening FOR us, all along.

When we remember to choose what we focus on and consistently practice, the results of our lives begin to align with that which we have chosen.  Why not focus on and practice that which has already resulted in what works well for others?  There are so many incredible, beautiful examples of different ways to live and BE in this world.  We can choose ANY one of them for ourselves, and begin expanding, evolving, and working towards THAT life, TODAY.


Today I will practice the things I want to be better or amazing at.  I will practice the things that a future version of myself will thank me for later.  If I don’t yet know what those are, I will make a list.  Clarity of vision in what we want makes it more probable we will achieve that vision.

One of the best books I’ve ever come across in my life is MINDSET, by Carol Dweck.  It speaks volumes about the importance of PRACTICING, and was written for young children, students, parents, business executives, and ANYONE who wants to get better at ANYTHING.  ❤️

This video will give you an idea of what the Growth Mindset is all about and is absolutely worth watching and sharing.

Remember:  Mindset matters.  Character counts.  That which we choose to consistently focus on is what EXPANDS in our lives.  WE CREATE our personal realities.
