What Am I Willing To Do?
(Do the following when you have completed your practice)
To complete your practice session it is imperative that you DO SOMETHING to add momentum to your goal of overcoming your temptation. It is best to make whatever you decide “to do” somewhat fun. Ask yourself, “What AM I willing to do to add momentum towards my goal – that I would almost enjoy doing?” No matter how small or how silly the action might seem it is important you take some action.
Isaiah 1:19 KJ2000 If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land:
Jesus often charged his followers to go do something:
• “stretch out your hand” Matthew 12:13
• “show yourself to the priest and offer the gift” Matthew 8:4
• “go tell your friends” Mark 5:19
As one author said:
“Never leave the scene of a decision without taking Action” – Anthony Robbins
And as the scriptures say:
Romans 12:21 KJ2000 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
Proverbs 16:3 KJ2000 Commit your works unto the LORD, and your thoughts shall be established.
To illustrate how your subconscious responds to action, think about your subconscious personified as one who walks over to you and places his hand on your shoulder and whispers, “If you really meant that, you would DO SOMETHING about it.” Our subconscious isn’t convinced “we mean what we say” until we take some action. Some action that might be described as easy, generous, friendly, compassionate, accommodating, elementary, effortless, unconventional or even outrageous – almost ANY KIND of action that would tend to direct our focus towards our goal is sufficient.
• show genuine concern for another person
• call a friend
• open a door for someone
• show an act of kindness
• turn the other cheek
• read something empowering
• write in your journal
• jump up and down and yell at the top of your lungs “I’m Free”
• stick up post-it notes in places you will see them
Up until now you have been resistant to overcoming temptation – you have not been willing to do what is needed – so again if your not willing to do “X, Y or Z” — What ARE YOU Willing To Do?
Never leave the scene of a desired goal without giving yourself some empowering suggestions:
What empowering questions can you use to propel yourself towards this goal? Every time you review and/or work on your goals be sure to write down some empowering questions. Empowering questions are not meant to be asked and then immediately answered, but rather we ask empowering questions to make powerful suggestions to our subconscious brains – putting our subconscious into search mode.
Your subconscious is much like a computer search engine in that when you give it the desired search criteria it will respond with results. However, unlike a computer search engine, if there are no results, your subconscious will not stop searching until it discovers a result that satisfies..
After making this a consistent routine, it is truly amazing how answers start coming to mind in some of the most unexpected times.
What empowering affirmations can you use to propel you towards this goal? Every time you review and/or work on your goals be sure to write down some empowering affirmations. While these affirmations may not be technically true at the moment, use the Biblical practice of speaking into existence those things that “are not” as though they “were”.
