Written by Tobias Moir
ACTIONS, what we do, speak louder than words.
Words though are very powerful, and whole books on the power of words have been written.
Action is the physical manifestation of the words we repeatedly speak, and the thoughts we repeatedly think.
What we ‘do’ ( action) consistently, in coordination with the thoughts we think and words we speak out loud, ultimately makes us who we are ( and brings about what we have!).
We become the self fulfilling prophecy we think and talk about most.
Success then, is first DISCIPLINE of the mind, which then filters into our words, and ultimately transpires into action.
I call this ‘RIGHT’ action, as right action coordinated with a successful mindset, more often than not leads to positive outcomes!
Seeking opportunities to exert self discipline (self control), is what separate the ‘successful’ from the ‘failures’ of this world.
It has often been said that the successful are willing to do (or not do in some cases) the things that others don’t want to do, will not do, or can’t do.
THOUGHTS HOLD GREAT POWER
Your thoughts are the mother of all action.
Controlling what consistent thoughts you allow yourself to indulge in, is the first place to start.
We all have fleeting thoughts. Crazy thoughts. Even disturbing thoughts. It is natural and healthy to be AWARE of all possibilities within any given situation.
Naturally the mind looks at all scenarios and options available.
Using self control though, one can exert self control over which thoughts to FOCUS on.
It’s your ability to focus and filter with your RAS ( reticular activating system- the part of the brain that matches what your focusing on with your experiences ) that allows you to hone in on specific/desirable thoughts.
THINK IT, SPEAK IT, ACT IT OUT!
1)It’s this REPETITION of thinking thoughts consistently that leads to powerful thought patterns.
2)Thought patterns tend to then influence your patterns of speech (the things you talk about).
3)These two precursors invariably leads to action!
If we like the result of the ACTION, we need to then repeat it consistently ( repetition) for it to become habit.
“Excellence, success, is the repetition of consistent right action, which leads to a desired result.”
Whether it’s a physical goal, financial target or dietary discipline, you will need to address your thoughts, fuels and actions to ensure you are in alignment with your goals.
1)Stop watching the news at night.
The negative images and fear based rhetoric can seriously impact your sleep, and your thought patterns.
Violence and suffering can sink into your subconscious and these images can then effect your thoughts and emotions through the next day. Your mind works with images, so keep them clean of you wish for a positive result!
2)Stop gossiping. This is a useless and negative act, which draws your focus and energies down into the gutter. It poisons the mind and will corrupt you.
3)Read inspirational, motivational and uplifting books.
Read positive quotes, watch Tony Robbins or talk with a loved one about your hearts desires.
To boost your ability to focus, eat/drink more:
Blueberries, green tea, avocados, leafy green vegetables, fatty fish, water, dark (over 85% cacao content) chocolate, flax seeds, and nuts.
These foods have a profound effect on mood, concentration and clarity of mind.
1)Make a list of what it is that your wanting to accomplish.
2)Create SMART goals with the list you’ve made.
3)Commit to implementing the actions that will bring you toward your goals.
Enjoy what you’ve created!
