Are you plagued by worry? Do you feel overwhelmed by your life? Stressed out and wondering how you’re going to get through this year?
Well, I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be like this. Do you remember the Sony Walkman or the tape player you used to have in your car? We all have a cassette tape running in our brain.
This cassette tape contains all of the fearful thoughts, doubt, and worries--all of the negative thoughts we have--what I call the stinkin’ thinkin’, and the tape of the stinkin’ thinkin’ is playing over and over again in our brains. Essentially, it’s wreaking havoc as it plays on auto-loop in our brain and we’re not even aware that we can hit the stop button!
According to the National Science Foundation, an average person has about 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day. Of those, 80% are negative and 95% are repetitive thoughts.
Wowzers! That’s a lot! And, with all of what’s going on in the world right now, those numbers probably even higher! That’s a whole lot of gloom and doom tapes stuck on repeat in brains across the world playing 24/7, 365 days!
But, don’t worry, my friend, it’s common to have this tape, but it doesn’t have to be normal for you.
Stay tuned until the end as I’ll share with you 3 ways to re-record over the the stinkin’ thinkin’ tape with 1 exercise, 1 affirmation and a special audio file that contains a powerful visualization, Mason Jar Worries that you can play anytime you’re ruminating in worry.
Our brain tapes no longer have to be a record of the past, but a map to the future.
You have to first realize that the stinkin’ thinkin’ thoughts are what actually hold you back. It's what you dwell on, you know. I always tell my business coaching students, don't think about what you don't want to happen-- like worry--it’s basically thinking of all the things you don't want to happen, what you're afraid will happen.
And, unlike concern, where you do something about your concern, with worry, your thinking about possible outcomes of future events that either you can’t control or you don’t do anything about, just continue to worry.
Let’s look at a real life example. If you’re you constantly thinking, “Will I get Covid and pass it on to my family?” This is a legitimate question.
But, let’s look at it a bit deeper. Is it a concern or a worry? Well, if it’s a concern than by definition you can take action, you can change the outcome.
Now, you can take precautions, you can wear a mask and all that, but can you really control the outcome? Not really, right.
When you continue to have your worry tapes, your stinkin’ thinkin’ tapes working on overtime and you’re just worrying, you’re not doing anything to change the situation.
It’s just a worry about the future, and it’s like this.
You literally manifest those things when you concentrate on them. Pretty much, our lives are the sum total of our positive and negative thoughts. And if you have more negative thoughts than positive, you're going to have a rather unhappy life.
Einstein knew this--that energy can be neither created nor destroyed. He understood the thoughts of things, thoughts are like electrical impulses, and what you're thinking and concentrating on in your brain, you're literally placing your order-- like a spiritual Amazon.
You don’t realize it, but you're placing your orders all the time. And people are using this faculty every day, they just don't know they're using it. So you know when they get these crappy events in their life, they don't realize that they ordered that up, they rewarded that exact scenario, with their stinkin’ thinkin’ tape over and over again.
And, if you learn how to control it, you can order the stuff you want!
So, if you’re feeling exhausted by the end of the day, everyday, it can be due to the fact that your stinkin’ thinkin’ tape is constantly running causing your brain to be continuously firing and wiring with negativity, which is a huge energy drain on your body.
Let’s fix this so you can have more energy, be happier and really live in your purpose, whether that truly is teaching or you’re ready to work on a transition plan out of teaching- I can help you with that!
If you can control the thought, and it’s not really a “if” because you can control your thoughts, it’s something everyone can do, and I’ll be sharing with you 1 exercise, 1 affirmation, and 1 visualization practice.
If you can become a master over your thoughts, not your thoughts being a master over you, then you can pretty much manifest really good events, good people, good situations.
There’s 3 ways to record over the stinkin’ thinkin’ brain tape so that it can be a map of the future you want, a future you’re rewriting, here’s how.
To effect our auto-looping tape the first exercise is what I call the
1 Negative = +++. For every 1 negative thought that pops into your head, you replace it with 3 pluses--3 things you’re grateful for.
Do you see how when you do this, you’re re-recording over the old tape?
The second way to start pressing the pause button on that stinkin’ thinkin’ is an affirmation I call, ONLY GOOD.
Every morning when you wake up say the following:
Today ONLY GOOD I see, ONLY GOOD comes from me, ONLY GOOD comes to be.
Don’t worry, I have this written down so you can print it out, or save this affirmation on your phone and read it every morning you wake up. It will be below this video.
And the last solution to stopping the worry is using a powerful visualization, Mason Jar Worries. It’s an MP3 audio file download that you can play anytime you’re ruminating in worry. I give you step by step directions on how to identify if it’s a concern or worry, and what you can do to rid yourself of it.
Because worry is really just robbing you of the present moment.
I had a wise mentor once say to me, If you’re stuck thinking about the past you’re likely to get depressed. If you’re stuck worrying about the future you’re likely to get anxiety. And either way, you’re robbing yourself of the present moment.
