Did you know that 95% of your decisions each day are unconscious? That’s insane, isn’t it?
Only 5% of the decision you make each day are conscious decisions.
Which means, 95% of the things you do, you’re doing because of a pattern you created. And you could have created that last year, five years ago or even when you were a little kid!
So, if you’re wanting a change, you want something new you have to make new decisions. Conscious decisions. You have to break the pattern.
And, here is the thing, when you break the pattern it won’t feel good. It will feel like you lost a part of you. Especially the longer you’ve had it around.
You may not be doing your dream because the pattern you use to make decisions with believes you are not good enough or you are too much.
What’s something you can do differently this week? Something crazy? Out of the ordinary?
Before you can talk yourself out it, use an old pattern, break it. Give it a while.
It won’t be easy. But, wouldn’t be cool to see what life is like when more of your decisions each day are conscious?
One thing I absolutely struggle with is how I talk to myself after I made mistakes. I would get upset, wonder how I could do something so lame. Think and rethink about how I should have done it. And, before you know it that little mistake had taken over my day. I know I am not alone in this. And, while I am getting better at the self talk. It’s not just because I need to or should. It’s because mistakes are worth having! And, we should truly fall in love with our mistakes.
You’re probably wondering why I believe this. But, have you ever taken a wrong turn and found an amazing cafe or shop on a street you would never have found yourself on? Or, have you ever gotten lost on vacation only to discover a cute little town that no tourists go to?
Mistakes are feedback. They give us a new perspective on a thought, they give us insight into how we should or shouldn’t do something. And unless you are a surgeon most mistakes are not so life-altering that you cannot bounce back. In fact, most mistakes put you on the right path for you!
Some of the biggest blessings in my life are due to the mistakes I made. Things I didn’t do, or forgot to do or didn’t do “right.” I cannot imagine what my life would look like or where I would be if I hadn’t made a mistake.
So, don’t just be nice to yourself after you make a mistake. Fall in love with that mistake. Welcome it in! See where it leads you!
How many mistakes can you fall in love with this week?
