We all have an inner voice. It is the subconscious programming that continuously runs in the background. Some of us would never treat anyone the way we talk to ourselves in our own head! Some of us have created the habit of constant negativity towards ourselves. We sometimes take the harshest words we hear from others, especially when we are younger, twist them and make them even more cruel, and then replay them in our minds throughout the day, or even for the rest of our lives. This, to me, doesn’t seem like a very good strategy to use in creating a life of beauty and abundance. In fact, I know from first hand experience that it is not. I used this habitual way of being for over the first 40 years of my life.
An old proverb says, “If there is no enemy within, no enemy without can do us harm.”
It is important we treat ourselves with the same love and respect we want from others. Our confidence, happiness, and the way we feel often comes from what we allow ourselves to think about and believe ABOUT OURSELVES.
There is a woman who does seminars to empower people in learning self-confidence. She has them write down the cruelest things they say to themselves in their minds. She then lines everyone up and has each person go down the line, facing each person, and repeating the things they say to them self to the people they are facing. Almost everyone realizes they would never be as cruel to others as they are to them self.
The brain is just like a supercomputer. The subconscious is simply a program that is ALWAYS RUNNING.
WE ARE THE PROGRAMMER!!!
I don’t just share quotes. I share PROGRAMS, disguised as quotes and beliefs.
What are some of YOUR favorite quotes that you have CONSCIOUSLY been reprogramming YOUR mind with? Through repeating them on a consistent basis, these little programs begin to run more often than the OLD programming we USED to focus on. We DISPLACE old ways of thinking when we replace them with NEW ways of thinking.
IT IS THROUGH REPETITION THAT WE REPROGRAM THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND.
Today I will create a folder on my phone, a file on my computer, a space within my journal, or find an available notebook, in which I will make a collection of all of my favorite quotes (PROGRAMS) to read and re-read throughout the day and before I go to sleep tonight. I will CONSCIOUSLY reprogram my SUBCONSCIOUS to tell me what I ACTUALLY WANT IT TO.
Some of the most useful information I love to review comes through Gary John Bishop. Put his name into Youtube and enjoy!

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.
