Thoughts

Thoughts are the sentences that constantly run through our minds.

We have an estimated 60,000-70,000 thoughts per day.

Sometimes we are very aware of our thoughts, but most of the time we are not.

Our thoughts are triggered by circumstances.

All of our drama is in our thinking.

The good new is you have total control over what you think.

No one can tell you what to think or believe.

Beliefs are just thoughts you keep on thinking with out question.

When we start to notice our thinking, it is alarming at how negative it is most of the time.

This is normal.

Your brain is always scanning for danger and trying to keep you safe.

If you want your life to be different all you have to do is think different thoughts!

This sounds so easy, but I know from personal experience that it is not.

First, you need to become aware of your thinking.

Then comes the realization that you are the one causing your own suffering (or joy!).

It is NOT the circumstance.

Finally, you need to deliberately think thoughts that serve you and keep moving you forward.

Practice is the mother of all skill.

You will need to think new thoughts on purpose and practice them!

I love showing my clients their thoughts.

They think they are telling me their circumstance.

And I will say…
“You know that is just a thought right?” 
“Why are you choosing to think that?” 
“Does that thought serve you?” 
“Did you know that that thought is optional?”

This is where the magic happens in coaching.

Getting authority over our own thinking.

What are you choosing to think on purpose today?
