Over time we can look back and see how all of the small things stacked, and became something quite large when they added up.
Isn’t it incredible what we can create with hard work and consistency? Isn’t it incredible to see that the opposite can so quickly and easily also be true. We can create ANYTHING with consistent hard work and discipline, or we can destroy anything through consistent neglect.
Sticking to that well thought out meal plan every single day for months can and will result in lost inches off our waistline, a younger, better, and healthier body, and a reason to go shopping for new and great looking clothes!
Adding just 10 minutes of reading quotes from our favorites folder on our phone to our daily routine, every day for months, while we eat breakfast, can and will alter and reprogram our minds, until we morph into a more incredible, interesting, ideal version of our inner self, all the while projecting a personal reality that directly corresponds and correlates to that new, inner version of self onto the virtual canvas of life, thereby creating a physical representation and reality to match!
Deciding to do planks and stretches after work every day can and will result in a six pack and flexibility which hasn’t been experienced in years, or maybe even EVER!
Consistency + Time = Change
We can choose to do something we know will be good for us every single day. We will look back in a year’s time and be amazed at the changes that have taken place if we do. We will also look back in a year’s time and be amazed at the changes that have taken place if we do not. NOTHING STAYS THE SAME. WE ARE DESTINED FOR EXPANSION AND GROWTH.
I highly recommend the audio books, ATOMIC HABITS, by James Clear, and THE POWER OF HABIT, by Charles Duhigg. These books offer inspiring ideas that make habits more easily achieved.
We are in control of our own, constant, personal re-creation process. Every little decision to do or not to do something will compound over time and benefit us or destroy us. We must remember to choose wisely. We are in control. We are the creators of our own existence and reality.
EVERYTHING starts on the inside. My favorite teaching from Wayne Dyer is this: WHEN WE CHANGE THE WAY WE OOOKS AT THINGS, THE THINGS WE LOOK AT CHANGE. I have found this to be true in my life.
One of the most amazing teachers I have chosen to follow and listen to on a daily basis is Jim Rohn. Just plug his name into the YouTube search engine and see what happens! Research his life story and the wisdom he has shared through books he wrote. Doing this has altered my life completely, and shot me onto a completely different, more empowering trajectory in life than I have ever before experienced. His mentor was John Earl Shoaff. I highly recommend listening to ANY content that has been put out featuring these men.
Quotes, words, ideas, and beliefs, are all seeds, ready to be planted in the garden of our minds. It is only through CONSISTENCY AND REPETITION that these seeds will someday become something capable of producing a crop. THE SOURCE OF OUR SEEDS IS EVERYTHING.
Today’s challenge for myself: Today I will start doing something easy, that I can do every single day, that I know will bring about a positive change in my life. (For ideas, google The goodinthehead Habit-Hacking Challenge.)
goodinthehead is also on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter. Follow me there, as well, for daily messages, inspiration, motivation, and reminders. Please pay it forward, and share this, and ANY message, which may empower someone you love or may care about. It is through adding value to others by sharing and spreading wisdom, that we become more valuable as individuals, and collectively, as a whole, we all become wiser.
Remember: Mindset matters. Character counts. That which we choose to consistently focus on is what EXPANDS in our lives. WE CREATE our realities.
