For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he....
I read this article in Home Business Magazine titled, New Habits: Break Out of That Rut which stated that "fear and self-limiting beliefs create imaginary boundaries that keep us from acting in our own best interest." Reason being is that our brain is wired to resist change. Getting stuck in a rut doesn't happen overnight, but slowly over a period of time as we think or behave in the same way.
Looking over my own life, I have seen areas where I was loyal to a way of thinking that wasn't producing the results I desired. I became frustrated at the outcomes, I murmured and complained, and even did the blame game-it was someone else's fault. But after careful examination of myself (and getting sick and tired of being sick and tired), I made a conscious decision to change. To take control of my thoughts and be the person God created me to be. To be my authentic self-unapologically.
I knew that this decision would not be popular among those who were familiar with me being a certain way; doing things a certain way. But I made peace with that at the beginning of my journey. I must say that it has been the most liberating experience. Standing on the above scripture, and defining myself by who God says I am and not people, has given me the freedom and peace needed to flow in my divine purpose. I no longer have to be or choose to be a slave to wrong thinking. I think about what I am thinking about and make the necessary changes as I go along.
What about you? Have you become loyal to dysfunction-a way of thinking that causing you more harm than good?
