How to Create New Possibilities in Your Life
Life has infinite possibilities. Unfortunately, most of us believe that we don’t have many options available to us. It can be challenging to change the momentum of our life, but there are so many possibilities available to all of us at any moment.
These possibilities won’t just happen on their own. It’s necessary to hold up your end of the bargain, and that means stepping outside of your comfort zone. Can you do that? Sure, you can!
Try these ideas and create a new life for yourself:
1. Create a compelling future.
A new objective is a great way to move your life in a new direction and create new possibilities.
View your life as sacred and give yourself a future that’s worthy of your attention and effort. Create a vision of the future that creates enthusiasm.
● What excites you?
● What kind of life do you want to life?
● Who are you?
2. Talk to new people.
Each new person in your life has the potential to change your life.
You never know who will offer you a job, become your best friend, become your partner, introduce you to other amazing people, or teach you something you never knew.
3. Take a trip.
Get away from home. Ideally, get out of the country. Different countries and cultures have a different way of doing things.
You might gain some insight into a way of life that would work better for you. People that travel a lot have a wisdom that homebodies lack.
4. Establish new habits and routines that create potential.
Think of all the things you could start doing that could change your life.
● Eat a healthier diet and exercise. You’ll feel better and likely lose weight. You might decide that running a marathon isn’t out of the question. You might gain the confidence needed to do other things.
● Write in a journal each day. You’ll learn more about yourself and can apply those insights to your life.
● Play the guitar for 30 minutes each day. You might decide you want to join a band.
● The possibilities are numerous.
5. Remove limiting beliefs.
We all believe things that aren’t true that limit us. Think about the things you’d like to do or experience but believe are out of reach.
How did you come to that conclusion? How do you know that belief is true?
● What are the negative beliefs you have about yourself? How do you know those aren’t true?
6. Educate yourself.
When you know more, you can do more. What do you want to know more about? Look at your interests and learn more about those subjects.
Maybe you want to learn a new language or how to paint. Maybe you want to learn how you can grow your business. Knowledge is power.
7. Try new things.
You never know for certain if you’ll like something until you try it. Something you thought would be just “okay” might turn out to be the best thing you’ve ever done.
Are you happy with your life? What’s the most exciting change that happened by choice for you in the last year?
If you have nothing to mention, your life is either spectacular or you’re not taking full responsibility for your life.
Consider all the possibilities available to you and begin making some changes. The years are passing by, so ensure you’re getting the most out of them.
5 Ways to Reprogram Your Thoughts
Our thoughts are tricky things to control. Our beliefs and habits are often hidden from us, but these are two of the things that have great influence over our thoughts.
Your thoughts influence your actions. If you want to change your behavior and results, it’s important to gain control over your thoughts.
This has been a battle for thousands of years and continues to be a great challenge.
Fortunately, psychology has grown considerably over the last 20 years on this important topic. Now, you can learn to reprogram your thoughts if you’re motivated to do so.
Use these techniques to gain control of your actions by reprogramming your thoughts:1. Affirmations.
Affirmations are essentially thoughts that you choose for yourself. You can listen to them, read them silently, or read them aloud.
Affirmations require a lot of repetition and emotional involvement, but they can be highly effective.
● Create affirmations that support the pursuit and achievement of your goals.
● Create affirmations that address your weaknesses.
● Create a schedule for exposing yourself to your affirmations.
● Be patient. Expect that it might be several weeks before you begin to see results.2. Learn.
Increasing or altering your knowledge in many areas can have a huge impact on your thoughts.
● Philosophy. If you view yourself or the world differently, your thoughts will change. Take a brief look at Stoic and Buddhist philosophy, for example.
These viewpoints are vastly different than how most people view the world. Become a student of philosophy and you’ll learn a lot.
● Success. There’s a lot most of us could learn about success. Goal setting, willpower, perseverance, and communication are just a few topics.
Learning more about these types of topics will change the way you view success, and your thoughts will change, too.3. Ask yourself questions.
Questions change your focus and thoughts. Asking yourself questions like, “What’s good about this situation?” or “What are my greatest strengths?” or “What should I be working on right now?” will change your thinking.
● Use questions to redirect your attention and thoughts. This is one of the easiest ways to change. Develop the habit of asking the right questions.4. Visualization.
Visualize something negative and notice your thoughts. Now, visualize something positive and notice your thoughts.
Compare. There’s no doubt that visualization impacts your thoughts and beliefs. Use this to your advantage:
● Visualize achieving your goals.
● Visualize completing the tasks you need to do each day.
● Visualize yourself being the type of person you want to be.
● Visualize yourself mastering a skill you want to learn.
● The period of time right after awakening and just before falling asleep can be especially effective.5. Attack limiting beliefs.
Your beliefs largely create your thoughts. Eliminating negative beliefs and adding positive beliefs will drastically change your thoughts.
Take a negative belief and apply the following process:
● Where did I get this belief? Is it my own? Did someone else give it to me?
● What is the belief based upon? Is the source valid? How do I know it’s true?
● What is this belief costing me? What would happen if i believed the opposite instead?
● Am I willing to let go of this belief for a month and see what happens?
You’re not as easy to program as a computer, but you’re more programmable than you think!
If you’re struggling to manage your behavior and get yourself to do the things you know you should be doing, try reprogramming your thoughts.
Many of our thinking patterns are purely habit and very challenging to alter. But challenging doesn’t mean impossible!
