So I talked about changing your thinking is the only way to get something different in your life
So what does this mean?
It means you give up being right about everything.
It means you admit that you don’t know everything.
It means you learn new ideas
It means you get new beliefs and throw out some old beliefs.
It means you don’t throw out what you don’t agree with and accept only what you agree with
Most of us go to seminars, read books, and talk to people through the filter of.
Do I agree with this.
Is this in alignment of what I already believe.
Now, we don’t say that consciously to ourselves. But that is what we do.
If someone or something (book, seminar, CD, person, etc) says something that isn’t in alignment with our current beliefs, we don’t’ believe it. we throw it out.
If someone or something says something we already agree with, we accept it in.
So how are you ever going to get a different result, if you only accept parts of books, seminars, etc, that you already agree with, and throw out everything you don’t already agree with?
That is just another reason it is so important to learn like a child. They don’t have this filter early on. Early on, they just absorb information.
We as adults filter all incoming information through this (I agree or don’t agree) filter.
So what that means, is when you go to a seminar, or read a book, or talk to people for your “problems” you have to change your thinking. You have to be looking for ways to change your beliefs and throw out old ones. You have to see new ways of seeing things you never saw before. You have to give up that you have all the answers. You have to give up that you know which solution will and won’t work for you. Because you don’t know.
If you knew what to do, and the beliefs that worked, etc, would you still have the problem you are trying to solve?
If you knew how to solve your problem, and what solutions will and won’t work, and what was true and false, you would no longer have the problem.
The very fact your “problems” are still around, means the very solution, is probably going to be something that you think will not work.
