Have you ever attempted to do something and failed?
I'm not talking about something outside of your
capabilities. I doubt that any of us could run a 4 minute mile
or bench press 400 pounds.
What I'm talking about here is trying to do something
within your capabilities. For instance, you join up with an
online business then diligently follow the instructions they
give you on how to promote. Really give it your best shot.
But.....seems like things just aren't going right.
You're not getting near the responses. And remember how
the literature you read before joining said you could make
thousands of dollars every month?
And, oh yeah....remember how easy they said it was going
to be? That was right after they hit you with all those
testimonials from folks who were already raking it in!
The folks who were living in huge, expensive houses and
were now laying on some beach in the Bahamas with their
laptops busily counting all the money they were making.
What went wrong?
Is your mind telling you things like: "I must be doing
something wrong." or, "I guess it works for some people,
but not for me.".....along with a hundred other litanies
all containing expressions of self-doubt and thoughts
that you, yourself are failing for whatever reason.
Think about that for a minute.
And the next time you go to place your ads or give
a business presentation: Are you first confronted by these
memories of past discouragements?
What are these memories telling you? That perhaps you
shouldn't have joined in the first place? Possibly they will be
saying something like "There's no use in doing this, nobody
will read it or respond to it anyway."
So now...... Who Has The Power?
You.....or your unpleasant memories of past failures.
These memories have the effect of actually pulling us
back into time and then causing us to have a distorted view
of the present.
We try to block out the more unpleasant ones, but doesn't
it just seem the more we resist them the stronger they
By giving our attention to these renegade self-defeating
memories aren't we in reality, only amplifying and giving
them more strength and a life they wouldn't ordinarily have.
As our minds get clouded over with re-plays of past events
these memories rob from us spontaneous creativity,
self confidence, and further distort our perception of what
is happening now, which only serves to affect our ability
to perform to our capabilities.
Is that what you really want?
So the next time you go to do something, watch yourself
and find out who has the power in the situation.....you.....
or your self-defeating memory patterns.
Isn't it about time you took back the power and started
controlling your life!.
Simply refuse to give further animation to these memory
patterns by re-focusing your attention on what is happening
in the present moment rather than on those past memories.
