You'd Better Think... Better

By Jeff Griswold

It's worthwhile to spend some time contemplating the awesome power of your own thoughts. To state it mildly, your thoughts are the key to your success in anything you do. Think about it. Every single thing you do - big or small - happens because your mind generates a thought to initiate that action.

  • What makes one person active and physically fit while another person can't seem to pull himself or herself away from the TV?
  • What makes one person choose to work on something while another chooses to procrastinate?
  • What makes one person interesting and funny and another person boring and mean?
  • What makes one person disciplined enough to set goals and commit to achieving those goals while another person does nothing to improve his or her life?

You can say that these people have different personalities, different experiences, different cultures, different tastes, etc. But the bottom line is that their minds work differently. The decisions you make and the activities you choose are the net result of what's going on in your own mind. And, as Anthony Robbins has said, "It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped."

Since our own thinking is the key to what we can accomplish in life, we are truly in control of our destiny. But while we are in control of everything we do, we are not always in conscious control of what we do or what we feel. Many of our choices are driven by the complex workings of our subconscious. For example, in spite of your desire to change, you may not be able to control how much you smoke, eat, drink, etc. Perhaps because of some previous experiences you are afraid to try new things. Or maybe you find yourself unwittingly sabotaging your relationships.

The bottom line is that every thought we have, conscious or subconscious, drives our behavior and dictates our reality.

Interestingly, many of our thoughts didn't even originate with us. We were programmed with them in childhood and throughout our lives. In a sense we were "hypnotized" to believe certain things about ourselves that eventually became our reality. For example, many children are told that they are not very smart. If they accept such programming - and children usually do - they create a negative inner-image of themselves and stop believing in their own intellectual capabilities.

These negative thoughts are recorded in the brain like audio and video tapes coupled with emotions and deep feelings. And they replay automatically throughout our lives. Each time they replay, they reinforce the negative inner-image we have of ourselves which, in turn, influences our behavior. In the case of a child who is told he is not smart, in most cases he performs poorly in school. This is mainly because, as someone who isn't smart, he doesn't expect to do well in school. He's happy with C's and D's. And eventually his career and opportunities become greatly limited.

But here's the good news! One of the greatest discoveries of the past century is that we can change our subconscious thinking. In doing so, we can automatically change our lives for the better. We can neutralize past negative programming and replace it with positive thoughts, images and feelings. Once these new inner-images are in place, the outward, physical changes are inevitable.

How do you do this? How do you overcome many, many years of negative programming? How do you change your subconscious thinking? How do you remove negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts, images, and feelings?

There are several techniques you can use to take control of your thoughts and emotions and reprogram your inner mind. While it is possible to reprogram your subconscious mind on your own, in practice nearly everyone benefits greatly from outside guidance and support. Well-directed hypnosis and/or therapy can be effective approaches but can be quite expensive. The most cost-effective approach available today is the use of audio programs designed to guide you and help you harness the power of your mind to change your life.

Now, let's jump into a practical technique you can start using immediately! With this technique you'll learn how to use your thoughts to direct Love Energy. As a result you'll instantly become more charismatic and likable.
