Our life is constantly changing—that’s the beauty of being human.
And here’s another truth: YOU change too. You change your mind about things you used to be adamant about.
I’ve experienced this myself in many areas of my life. For example, when it came to my relationship with alcohol, five years ago I would have said: There is absolutely no way I’m going to be free from this hold alcohol has on my life.
Five years before that I would have said: Alcohol, she is my best friend. She helps me with everything….stress and overwhelm PLUS life is so much more fun with my friend alcohol.
Today I have total freedom around alcohol because I’ve lost the desire to drink.
At the time I held each of these very different truths, I was adamant about each one of them.
In today’s episode, you’ll discover:
- How our words create our thoughts which form our beliefs which affect our life
- Why it’s perfectly normal for our brain to want more alcohol or other pleasure-inducing things.
- Why we feel so trapped and out of control
- How our emotions affect the results showing up in our life
- What you can do, today, to start changing your relationship with alcohol. The Model:
Circumstances_can trigger_Thoughts_which cause_Feelings_which cause_Actions_which cause_ResultsThe result is always proof or evidence of the original thought.
Questions To Ask Yourself & Write Down The Answer: - What thought does the circumstance (which is always a fact) trigger for you? - What do you feel when you think this thought? - How do you act when you feel this way? - What is the result of this action? - How does the result prove the original thought? - What is a better feeling thought to choose concerning this circumstance?
The power of this process is in first recognizing the thinking you may not be aware of and understanding how you are creating your own experience with your thinking.
After identifying the thoughts which are causing you the struggle, you can then consciously decide on your own terms what you will choose to think.
