In the last few weeks, more than ever I have been thinking about what I think. Why I think it, and whether I can control what I think and then in turn what I do.
I have always read ‘personal development’ books and psychology books, depending on what questions I’ve had or particular things I have needed help with. So I guess the power of the mind has always been something I have been interested in.
I have found the more I read, the more intrigued I am, and the more I learn, the clearer things seem. And actually, the happier I get. I think I still have a long way to go and a lot more learning to do, but I think these days I am more aware of things, and am more mindful than I ever have been in my life.
I have been questioning my actions a lot, and also listening to my inner self and it’s actually really empowering. The main question I think is ‘why do you do what you do?’
Some of the answers to that question that I thought of are;
– Someone told me to
– Everyone else does it
– What do you mean?
– Why not?
I think if you listen to yourself more, and be more mindful, and just do what you want to do all/most of the time, then life would be a total dream. That’s what I have learnt so far from all these books I have read, and things I have tried. A quote I read today in Anthony Robbins book Awaken the Giant Within ” As he thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
I guess, what I am doing is being myself, being more confident, not being scared to be myself and trying not to get influenced by things that other people (media) (bad people) tell me I should be doing, or should have. I am trying to look beyond, and also be more in control of my own life.
I feel like I’ve written a bit of a riddle. Haha. It’s not a tricky one, basically just be you.
