Walking Your Talk

Life Story by Daniel | Wednesday, September 03, 2008 | 4 comments »

You are ready to go on your job interview, your first date or your first meeting with the in-laws.

What is on your mind?
How do you picture yourself?
What kind of pitch are you going to put yourself in?

If your thoughts are
"Why am I doing this? I don’t have enough education and I don’t think they are going to hire me."
"She/he definitely won’t like me. I talk too much and I’m not very interesting."
"They are going to hate me and I know it. I don’t measure up to their standards."

If those are your thoughts, this is how you probably look when you approach either of the matter.
Your eyes are looking down and to the right as you talk to yourself, projecting all these negative thoughts.
Your shoulders are slumped.
Your posture is dipping forward.
Your feet don’t want to move.
Your hands are in your pockets, and they won’t come out to open the door.

What are you actually doing to yourself?

Just like what we've discussed previously, do you realize that your mind is actually in control of your body? Don’t you realize your body is actually affecting what's in your mind?

See the link we're trying to show?
If your body is slumped and dejected, your thoughts must be thinking exactly the same.

If your thoughts are dejected and negative, your body can’t help but reflect that.
If you are thinking, "I’m no good. I can’t do it" you certainly don’t see your body standing up, stretching, standing in a comfortable posture and ready to take on the world, do you?

Your body is affecting of your mind.

Stop wasting your time saying none of that works for you.
Like we've always emphasize, take charge of your life!
Straighten up your body, throw those shoulders back, hold your head up high and march right into that situation!

After understanding the link between body and mind.
Look at what you are thinking now. Change your thinking, focus on what you hope to achieve, visualize yourself successful in your mind, and you’ll be way ahead of the game.
Stop wasting your time saying none of this works for you, saying things will never change no matter what you do.

You’ve got to move on and you can’t until you decide you can make almost anything to work for you.

The more you SAY it, the more you THINK it, the more you ATTRACT it.

Do you WANT it in your life?
What are you attracting?
If it’s bad, STOP IT!

But how?

Take charge of your life. Once you get those negative thoughts out of your mind, start thinking good thoughts.
Instead of "I'm not good enough", how about "They don’t know me. This is my best shot at showing them who I am. I am going to WALK MY TALK."

How does that affect your posture?
Did I just mention your mind was actually in control of your body?

With this level of confidence you've achieve, see all the great things you can bring into your life, and share that knowledge and ability with others.
