Hi friends! Today we are talking about your programming and whether or not you have the power to upgrade that programming. This is something that has really been on my mind lately, something that I’ve really been working with. So I wanted to share it with all of you!
What do I mean by programming? I’m talking about that super powerful tiny space between your ears – your thought process. What does your thought process have to do with programming? Well, we’re talking about your subconscious, what you’ve been PROGRAMMED to know and think!
If we’re thinking about your thought process we’re talking about your subconscious and conscious, right? Your conscious is your reasoning, the things you think through before doing. You have control of your conscious mind on a daily basis. Your subconscious, however, is pre-programmed from when we were young. Your subconscious controls things you do with thinking, like breathing! The story your body tells itself is that it needs to breathe in order to survive, which is the truth! But you don’t have to think through that process on a daily basis, your body just does it, because it’s programmed, right?
Alright friends, here’s what I want to cover with you today
- Where does our programming come from?
I want to share a bit of an anecdote with you about my own personal programming. For myself, one of the things that kept coming up with me was the struggle I had to continue on my path of success. What I mean by that is I would do really, really well on goals for myself. If it was a fitness goal, a financial goal, etc. I would do a really good job of sticking to that and working really hard to achieve said goal…until about two weeks before the goal due date. This is when I would sabotage myself. After doing some personal digging and being very intentional with myself, I realized that when I was a child and I would excel in school, I would get ridiculed for that. So then I made myself mediocre to fit in. That stuck with me into adulthood. I was pre-programmed to be mediocre, so I could fit in with my peers. Do you see what I mean when I talk about your subconscious and being pre-programmed? This journey starts so early with us, even as an infant. If we’re born into a household that speaks English, that language will be programmed into our brains at a young age. It’s the same thing with anything else!
- You have the power to choose
You may be thinking: “You just told me I’ve been pre-programmed since I was a baby, how am I able to choose my programming now as an adult?” Right?! I get it! That’s what point number three is for! I’m just taking this time to enforce to you that you have the POWER to make your conscious mind think what you want it to think. This is such a beautiful thing friends, that we can replace the lies with powerful truth.
- How do I re-program?
Now let me tell you how you CAN upgrade your programming – through repetition. We want to eliminate the lies we’ve been told and REPLANT truth. You want to train your conscious mind to speak and believe the truth. You have the power to do this. Do you want a different career? Do you want a different home life? Do you want to get into shape? REPEAT powerful “I can” phrases to replace the lies with your truth statements. This is so important and so powerful.
You may be thinking right now that you don’t care how many times you repeat “I am strong, and I can run a marathon”, it doesn’t mean that it will work, right? But I need you to trust me on this! I need you to do it, I just need you to believe that this is powerful, that you CAN re-program your conscious mind and that you can ACHIEVE by believing. It’s such a beautiful thing when your conscious mind changes, when you start believing things you never thought were possible because you started believing in yourself.
