What ever you think, whatever you feel, lose the fake and keeps what’s real
What is attainable aspiration?
Venus Cow says “Change the way you think about things and the things you get will change.”
For me it was all about changing the way I thought about everything to avoid those distructive feelings of anger and disappointment which when you've lost as much money as I did through greed and stupidity come over you like a tsunami. These days it's one of the first tools I teach people in my free life coaching.
I learned quicky by changing the way I spoke to myself, more kindly in the beginning and being conscious of the words I used I gradually over time was able to change the way I felt about my predicament and Attainable Aspiration was born. The act of aspiring to things that were actually possible like losing weight and feeling great. I put aside the yearning for fancy cars and luxurious mansions in the sort term. And then trained my brain when I found myself drifting off into fantasy land, or chasitising myself to divert to what was true and real for me in the here and now.
Action. I am going to lose weight.
The work. Eat less, more healthily, exercise, have the desire to achieve your goal.
The result. A happy person.
Changing the way we think about ourselves and not worrying about what others think of us is the place to start your journey to attainable aspiration whatever your goal might be. If eating, smoking or drinking yourself to death is preferable in your mind to a long healthy happy life it is time to change the way you think. But for those already able to admit deep down the truth, that being alive is a gift and being happy makes sense, it is time for some goal setting.
Giving up any addiction or behaviour pattern is impossible unless you change the way you think. The definition of insanity is to repeat the same behaviour and expect a different result but grasping this concept is not enough to catch your subconscious behaviour before it happens. You have to be living in the moment to do that, not on auto pilot where most of us exist and this takes practise.
It's time to change the record.
If you wake up and the first thing you do to get you going is have a strong coffee and a fag, you are deluding yourself. It is just a habit and you are going nowhere.
If the first thing you do is go for a walk in the fresh air, the simple change in your behaviour will change the rest of your day and how you feel about yourself.
Time alone to think just about you and your goals is your destination to attainable aspiration. Watch what you say to yourself and choose your words wisely. Your subconscious is a computer that remembers everything you feed it so learn to frame your thoughts in a positive and honest way remembering your thoughts are NOT facts.
What ever you think, whatever you feel, lose the fake and keeps what’s real.
We come into this world alone with nothing and we leave alone with nothing. What we do in the middle is the drama of our lives. So make it exciting, adventurous and meaningful. Don’t waste anymore time stuck in a rut. You can do whatever you set your mind to do. You are unique, a one off so no one else has any of the answers for you, only the wisdom to get you through and the rest is up to you.
