A lot of success comes from repetition.
Repeatedly doing the things that are necessary to reach our goals.
Following a process.
But a BIG part of our success comes from our beliefs about ourselves as well.
What if you could choose to create different beliefs by practicing better thought patterns?
You can. Do you believe me?
Let’s break it down.
Many of you, as clients, have heard us talk about how we learn: from gross to fine. Meaning we learn how to do a thing by first getting the broad strokes of a thing and then refining or finessing the movement or skill over time..
You may be familiar with Maslow and the stages of learning.
The two tie together.
Unconscious Incompetence: where we don’t even know what we don’t know.
Conscious Incompetence: when we realize there’s a lot we don’t know.
Conscious Competence: when we start to know how to do things but have to think about it and be deliberate in order to execute.
Unconscious Competence: when it flows, when we don’t even have to think about how to do the thing, we just do it.
As we are learning we go through these stages, with all things.
It is the same with thought patterns.
We are not our thoughts.
We can actually practice thinking new ones.
It can take some work and some practice- particularly if we have persistent thought patterns that are negative and have been our viewpoint for a long time.
But isn’t it worth it? To take the time and practice being kind to yourself? To say nice things to yourself?
The next time you pass a mirror, why don’t you try saying something nice (in your head or aloud) to yourself.
Instead of noticing whatever could be better or finding a flaw, point out the things that are great.
The next time you have an oops in life, be kind to yourself rather than verbally assaulting yourself.
Over time, gradually, slowly, the pattern will change and you’ll training yourself into a new habit.
You can do it.
We believe in you.
Committed to your success,
Megan K and the team
