4 Tips for Achieving Gratitude
Coaching questions bring out the most brilliant revelations from the clients I have the pleasure to work with. Many are not even aware when his or her brilliance until they surface.
I was having a discussion with a strong and intelligent woman on the issue of “expectations” and she said “I am the only one who lives in my perceived reality and there are going to be certain things and/or times when what I think should or want to happen in my reality maybe not even feasible for the rest of the world.”
I found this statement to be so profound. Perception is the gateway to your mind and your mind's tools for collecting life data. Perception filters everything from external life to internal life.
4 Tips for Changing your perceptual filters
1. Change your mindset
Make sure that your mindset is aligned and balanced for the change you are desiring and working for. A doubtful, negative, or unrealistic mindset will not allow a positive mindset to flourish.
2. Denounce your negative thoughts
As you focus on setting a positive mindset you may pick on
negative thoughts which don't match your objectives. Mentally remove them from your thought stream by denounce them and promise not to give any attention to them if they surface for
3. Be open to creating new core beliefs every day to replace
your negative thoughts
In the empty spaces where you removed negative thoughts, create new beliefs and place them in those empty spaces in
your thought stream.
4. Live in the moment
Stuck in your past attempting to fix what you did or get
answers to why things happened is anti-productive.
Projecting or fearing about the future is just as fruitless
as living in the past. One thing which is crystal clear is
the moment is all you truly have, so live it, be it'
So what became abundantly clear is that I guess each one of us lives in a different reality. Become right with your reality or change your perceptual filters.
