I'm sorry I haven't managed to post a lesson for some time.
The problem is I'm moving house. It's a process that I hate. I've lived in my present home for many years. Because of this it's become a symbol of security. It's not that there are problems with the place I'm moving to. It's very nice. When I consider where I could have ended up, I've got to say that I've been lucky It's just that I somehow feel that when I leave this place my world is going to come to an end and that all I hold dear will be thrown, like a lot of my belongings, into the trash can of history. Apart from these emotional considerations, I can't stand the physical process of being"uprooted".
So it's appropriate that this week's topic for consideration is The Subconscious Mind.
The subconscious mind is, to borrow a phrase from computer technology, your "operating system"(i.e. like Windows, Mac, Linux etc). It's the lens through which you see the world and the events that occur in it. It's what enables you to see the glass as either half-full or half-empty.
If your subconscious mind is filled with positive thoughts, it'll be half full. If it's filled with negative thoughts, it'll be half empty.
The trouble is that negativity is your "default setting". Dr Hill believed that and it's certainly been my experience.
The good news is, however, that you have the power to change your "operating system". By means of self-talk, whichever method you adopt, you can eject negative thoughts from your subconscious mind and replace them with positive ones.
Right now this is taking a considerable amount of effort on my part.
The idea I'm comforting myself with is that this is the last thing I have to do to clear up the mess left by the problems I experienced about two years ago. I feel that once this is over, I'll be able to put renewed effort into building my business and improving other areas of my life.
I'll be grateful for any support which my colleagues or rather friends at Mentoring For Free can give.
