If you don’t like what’s on, change the channel. Could it be this simple? Have you ever had the battery die out on your remote control? How frustrating is it when you want to change the channel but can’t. Well, honestly, you can! (As a side note, if you’re that attached to the television, here’s a great place to start — turn it off! But I digress.) :o)
I am now learning that it is the same way with those pesky negative emotions — fear, anger, unworthiness, guilt, and hurt feelings. But rather than turning them off, use them as tools to become an ever better new and improved you (or rather the “you” that’s been covered up by all the years of believing those negativities were true).
“By applying knowledge we can make out future what we wish it to be.” (Haanel) Instead of rifling through a drawer to “find” batteries, shuffle the cards, “practice daily . . . and perform amazingly because of practice”, “attach any feeling to any thought, [your] choice”, “instantly replace a negative thought with a positive one”, “[the] subconscious works 24-7 to manifest what [you] plant along with [your] DMP”, and “whatever [you] think about grows and what [you] forget atrophies without exception”.
“Weak is he who permits his thoughts to control his actions; strong is he who forces his actions to control his thoughts.” (Og)
- FEAR has an energy that gives us concentration and focus;
- ANGER has an energy to promote change;
- UNWORTHINESS keeps us on track;
- GUILT validates that we are good and know what to do;
- HURT FEELINGS remind us how much we care;
“Thoughts are spiritual seeds, which, when planted in the subconscious mind, have a tendency to sprout and grow.” (Haanel) We are the farmers. We can choose what to plant and how to foster them to grow. Each seed is like a coin. How and what you plant determines your harvested crop. What will you choose? I choose to recognize them and to be thankful that they stop me in my tracks and point me in the right direction.
will master my moods through positive action and . . . will control my destiny.” (Og)
will takes practice, but through our trials, we will find success! (W. Clement Stone)
