Who's Got The Power In Your Life?
By: Dave Cole
Have you ever attempted to do something and failed?
I'm not talking about something outside of your
capabilities. I doubt that any of us could run a 4
minute mile or bench press 400 pounds.
What I'm talking about here is trying to do something
within your capabilities. For instance, you join up
with an online business then diligently follow the
instructions they give you on how to promote.
Really give it your best shot.
But.....seems like things just aren't going right.
You're not getting near the responses. And remember
how the literature you read before joining said
you could make thousands of dollars every month?
And, oh yeah....remember how easy they said it was
going to be? That was right after they hit you
with all those testimonials from folks who were
already raking it in!
The folks who were living in huge, expensive houses
and were now laying on some beach in the Bahamas
with their laptops busily counting all the money
they were making.
What went wrong?
Is your mind telling you things like: "I must be
doing something wrong." or, "I guess it works for
some people, but not for me.".....along with a
hundred other litanies all containing expressions
of self-doubt and thoughts that you, yourself are
failing for whatever reason.
Think about that for a minute.
And the next time you go to place your ads or give
a business presentation: Are you first confronted
by these memories of past discouragements?
What are these memories telling you? That perhaps
you shouldn't have joined in the first place?
Possibly they will be saying something like "There's
no use in doing this, nobody will read it or
respond to it anyway."
So now...... Who Has The Power?
You.....or your unpleasant memories of past failures.
These memories have the effect of actually pulling
us back into time and then causing us to have a
distorted view of the present.
We try to block out the more unpleasant ones, but
doesn't it just seem the more we resist them the
stronger they become.
By giving our attention to these renegade self-defeating
memories aren't we in reality, only amplifying and
giving them more strength and a life they wouldn't
As our minds get clouded over with re-plays of past
events these memories rob from us spontaneous creativity,
self confidence, and further distort our perception
of what is happening now, which only serves to
affect our ability to perform to our capabilities.
Is that what you really want?
So the next time you go to do something, watch yourself
and find out who has the power in the situation.....
you..... or your self-defeating memory patterns.
Isn't it about time you took back the power and
started controlling your life!.
Simply refuse to give further animation to these
memory patterns by re-focusing your attention on
what is happening in the present moment rather
than on those past memories.
