What’s really working this week is this immersion in thinking different thoughts with frequency and repetition in order to influence my subconsious. Yes, I feel like a juggler getting the right things done at the right time in the right way. But it’s already paying off. Words and phrases I’m reading and repeating are seeping into other part of my day, and even into my dreams. My mind must really love “Today I begin a new life,” the beginning words of this month’s MKE scroll as well as “…today I am a new wo/man, with a new life,” the concluding words–because now I hear them all the time through the day. They just have a way of making me stand tall and walk differently. How exciting that I’m believing it!
The thing that has astonished me the most this week is feedback on the first draft of my Definite Major Purpose. A marketing coach had helped me put a lot of the thinking/wording together several year ago about my WHY. But my MKE coach suggested I word my way less negatively. All these years I’ve known in one part of my brain that it’s not a good idea to name something with the name of the illness (MS Tools, Diabetes Support Group, etc.) because that focuses on and reinforces the illness. Instead we want to think about and name the tool and support group something about that focuses on independence or reinforces getting healthier. Yet that segment of my knowing hadn’t crossed over into how I explained what I’m doing in my business and life. So I’ve really been chewing on the negative wording, puzzling how to reframe it and rewrite it. And those questions, too, are seeping into my day and dreams as well. Exciting!
