Personal change is an inside job. Yep, it all starts from inside the brain/mind!
A number of years ago I read about a group of people who were moved out of a slum into a brand new apartment block. Their old building was run down and quite frankly a dump. There was a lot of unemployment, poor health and there was a lot of crime. It was believed that the move would bring about positive changes for them.
Well in time, the new apartment looked very much like the old slum they had come from. You see, the authorities had tried to change the people from the outside! They still carried their old beliefs and behaviours with them to the new building. So nothing really changed.
Oh some people took the opportunity an changed, but the majority didn’t.
To get the get the changes we want in our life, we must first change the image in our minds. Bring our desired changes to life in our minds with strong images and feelings.
These images start creating changes in the structure of the brain. In the neural connections within the brain. Slowly these changes in the brain start to change our mind and how we think and act. The more we engage in visualising the changes the stronger the new neural connections become.
As Steven Covey has said – “Start with the end in mind!!” Start with the vision. Live the vision in your minds eye. Be a part of the movie you see on the screen of your mind. Then you will start to see the changes in your life!
Use self-hypnosis to help you create the vivid image and live it!
