Allow me to explain:
You have a default thought that is not super helpful.
(Example: There's not enough time and there's so much to do!)
Most people never make it past step one. They just allow their thoughts to happen, unsupervised.
You become aware of this unhelpful thought.
Awareness is always the hardest part. This is big progress!
You take charge and choose to intentionally think a different thought that will serve you better.
(Example: It's possible that I can relax. It's possible that there is enough time for what's important.)
Steps 1-3 repeat many, many times.
This can be frustrating, because now that you've noticed that intentional thought, you want it to be gone. But changing those well-established neuropathways can take time.
After repeating this process, it becomes easier and easier to think that intentional thought.
Eventually, that thought that took effort to think becomes your new default thought! Woo!
Have you ever noticed this process happening?
