Reset Your Thinking Day 12 – Perception
“We must not allow other people’s limited perceptions to define us.” – Virginia Satir
Reset 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 reality…our 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
