So, You Need Approval? Day 18

Reset Your Thinking Day 18 – So You Need Approval?

“Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God’s approval.” –Thomas S. Monson

AResetpproval is like a killer drug (it induce stupor or insensibility to your identity). You seeking approval becomes addictive and you quickly develop a need for more. When you have a need for approval you value the beliefs, opinions and needs of others above your own. Their opinion of you is far more important to you than your own view of yourself.

Receiving disapproval becomes a painful (heartbreaking) experience. Your entire decision-making processes are eventually taken over by your need for the approval of others. You cannot take any decisive action without their approval. You’ll sacrifice your own dreams and ambitions in order to have their approval, Why?  You may argue that you do not engage in approval seeking behaviour. However, there are common behaviors which you may fail to recognise as approval seeking. Do you?

  1. Change your position because someone appears to disapprove
  2. Paying insincere compliments to gain approval
  3. Feeling upset, worried, or insulted when someone disagrees with you
  4. Expressing agreement (verbally or non-verbally) when you do not agree
  5. Doing something which you do not want to do because you are afraid to say ‘No’Any

Behavior which is contrary to your identity and purpose, or conflicts with your core beliefs, is generally done to gain the approval of someone else.  One of  the easiest ways to avoid approval seeking is to live a life that is true to your own values and true to yourself. #ResetYourThinking

Old Pains Reopen Wounds – Day 17

Reset Your Thinking Day 17 – Old Pain Reopen Wounds

“Turn your wounds into wisdom.” ― Oprah Winfrey

ResetThat horrible pain that you are feeling right now will go away since time heals everything. Just keep that in mind and don’t beat yourself up if you still haven’t managed to get past your former relationship, even if you broke up with your partner quite some time ago or there was a disagreement between you and your closest friend, time still heals all wounds.

Sometimes it’s not so easy to walk away when that unfortunate event leaves some pretty nasty scars on your emotional well-being. Sometimes, love fades and there’s nothing you can do to change that. There’s no point in wondering obsessively about what happened, what you did wrong or what you could have done to prevent that because most of the time it’s nobody’s fault if you have outgrown your partner or that friend and these things just happen. It’s time to move on and leave the past behind. #ItsClosureTime

  1. Give yourself time will heal –give yourself enough time to heal
  2. Learn to forgive –him/her for what was said/done
  3. Write a letter –say everything you wanted to say to end the madness
  4. Have a symbolic ceremony –get rid of clothing, pics, delete texts SAY GOODBYE!
  5. Empty Chair –say what you wanted to say get it off your chest #unleash
  6. Don’t forget yourself –time to build self again #appreciationself #worthiness
  7. Apologize – for your wrong doing, then forgive yourself

Will Excuses Be Your Defeated Foe? Day 16

Reset Your Thinking Day 16 – Will Excuses Be Your Defeated Foe?

“Leadership is about taking responsibility, not making excuses.” – Mitt Romney
ResetThe Dangers of excuses..  excuses are devastating to marriages, businesses and relationships. Excuses will cause you to become self-focused and selfish.  Excuses cause you to lose sight of your purpose missing the mark for your life.  Excuses justify where you are complacency. Excuses validate mediocrity.. cause one to validate why they are broke, stagnated and not progressive in their life.

Excuses’s.. is beginning projects books, business, ministry with excitement and not finishing because of an excuse. Excuses champion a defeated outlook and mentality. Will excuses be YOUR DEFEATED FOE? The adversary is not to blame it simply one’s way of thinking. EXCUSE IS THE LANGUAGE OF VICTIMS. Are you still a victim of your circumstance?  Know this, the problem is not the pain of trial is not the trial itself. IT IS OUR RESPONSE. What will your response be today? Stop the excuses and respond to the situation at hand with an open mind.

Let today be the day.. you reflection write down what you have been avoiding. What you didn’t confront, what needs your attention, then pray, ask the Lord to guide you and give you ways to handle the situation gracefully. #ResetYourThinking #StopTheExcuses

Words Are Seeds-Day 15

Reset Your Thinking Day 15 – Words Are Seeds

“Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another.” – Napoleon Hill
ResetReset Your Thinking! Seeds are powerful and have great potential for good or harm, depending on what is locked up in the seed.  Seeds have limited potential, but God’s have unlimited potential. That is why it is important we speak God’s words and not just our own.

We do not know how the seed grows but it does! God speaks in outcomes and then the processes are released to manifest that. We are to plant God’s outcomes in our heart and continue to water our faith in those outcomes by our confession of faith.

The growth process works the same towards the bad as well as the good. So many people have deeply rooted problems in their life because of wrong believing and wrong confession. They have believed a lie and have spoken in line with it so long that it is deeply rooted in their lives and bearing a lot of bad fruit! You can uproot these wrong plants by renouncing the lies and by beginning to sow good seeds and watering them. It will not happen overnight but it can start today. #ResetYourThinking #UpRoot

Have An Open Mind – Day 14

Reset Your Thinking Day 14 – Have An Open Mind

“The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.” – Terry Pratchett

ResetBeing open-minded can be really tough sometimes. Most of us are brought up with a set of beliefs and values and, throughout our lives, tend to surround ourselves with people who share the same values and beliefs. Therefore, it can be difficult when we’re faced with ideas that challenge our own and though we may wish to be open-minded, we may struggle with the act of it from time to time.

One of the scariest (and greatest) things about seeing the world through an open mind is making yourself vulnerable. In agreeing to have an open-minded view of the world, you’re admitting you don’t know everything and that there are possibilities you may not have considered. This is the perfect time to consider RETOOLING (equipping) YOURSELF. Be spontaneous, have new experiences challenge your beliefs to do something out of your norm. It can be very liberating to look at the world through an open mind. #ResetYourThinking #HaveAnOpenMind

Get A New Perspective – Day 13

Reset Your Thinking Day 13 –  Get A New Perspective

“The world is a tragedy to those who feel, but a comedy to those who think.” ― Horace Walpole

ResetYou know what the real enemy to happiness is? It’s not sadness, or failure or fear… it’s complacency. It’s becoming so comfortable with just being comfortable that we stop trying to make things better. We stop even trying to make things different. .

You know what the real enemy to happiness is? It’s not sadness, or failure or fear… it’s complacency. It’s one becoming so comfortable with just being comfortable that we stop trying to make things better. We stop even trying to make things different.

We go on and on, satisfied with being good enough, and we don’t realize that nothing is really all that good until we wake up one day and find ourselves miserable. Sometime before we reach that point, there are chances, windows that can be thrown open to let in some fresh air and sunlight. Changing your life doesn’t always mean turning your entire world upside down, sometimes it’s just about getting a new perspective on yourself, or the world around you.

Take time to be quiet and meditative. Open yourself to receiving guidance and new information about your life. Simply having the intention to be open to receiving guidance can often set off a new stream of experiences naturally directing your next steps on your path to greater prospects. ‪#‎ResetYourThinking ‬‪#‎NewPerspectives‬

Perception – Day 12

Reset Your Thinking Day 12 – Perception

“We must not allow other people’s limited perceptions to define us.” – Virginia Satir

ResetReset Your Thinking!  The way that you interpret your life experience creates your identity. So, what does it take to become the best version of yourself possible? Why are you so hard on yourself? From the time you were born, you’ve received both positive and negative messages from your surroundings.

All those messages indelibly programmed into your subconscious to create your belief system. They become the filters through which we create our realityour self-image, acting on them as if they’re true. While they don’t change the world around us, they filter our life experience until we believe them to be true.

You become the person you think you are. If you think you’re someone who will never amount to anything… guess what? You’re right. These beliefs and how we respond to them become your “head space!”  What exactly is head space? Head space is that place in your mind where your thoughts, (both positive and negative) and judgments about yourself and your environment, combine to create your reality.

So, are we doomed by our perceptions of the past? Can we never get out of our negative head space? Of course, we can! But it takes work. You can improve your head space and improve the quality of your life. If you believe you are a person who cannot succeed, then success will evade you. You will subconsciously create failure as a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you believe you are a person who can succeed, then you will act accordingly! Again, this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy! #ChangeYourPerception. #ResetYourThinking
