Low standards will always equate to poor quality.
~ Dr. Mikel Brown
Are you overscheduled and under rested? You can improve the quality of your life with the right strategies to free up time for what you really want to do. There are different ways to overcome goal-challenging weariness and accomplish your objectives, which may seem like shortcuts to reach your goals. However, they really aren’t shortcuts at all. These so-called shortcuts are simply better avenues and methods of doing something when you were originally using the long version or the wrong technique.
It all comes down to the kind of material and processes used to gain and have and a happier more fulfilled life. If you don’t like what your thoughts are manufacturing in your life, check out the kind of thoughts you are allowing to come into your psyche daily. Don’t talk yourself into cutting quality while expecting better results. It’s ludicrous to think that you can fill your mind with substandard thoughts and produce quality actions. Your actions are the products of your thoughts.
Your life is like a building or a house under construction, and you are the General Contractor. You are the only one who is responsible for the construction of your life. Just like the GC who ensures that he or she understands all levels of the blueprints, and the kind of material that should go into the building; you then, have to hire subcontractors who are licensed, bonded, and well equipped to perform their part of the job in or on the facility. Remember, your life is the building or the house that you desire to build, so why would you allow inexperienced subcontractors to come into your life and use substandard materials?
What you listen to is equally as important as whom you listen to. Whomever you respect, you authorize to speak into your life as a subcontractor, and bring with them whatever quality of thoughts they possess. Or do you trust that that person will not use the same worthless items they built their own life with to help build yours.
You see, it works like this. People project and send subliminal messages that your subconscious mind picks up, without the frontal part of your brain realizing what is transpiring. You may not want to see the faults in the person’s life because your frontal brain is focusing on the respect you have for the person. However, your subconscious is taking in all the unscrupulous and defeating tendencies that are undetected. Your subcontractors, just as at an actual construction site, have access to your construction site (life) because they are your mentors, teachers, ministers, friends, or associates. The same applies to whatever you choose to read; because, words are the building blocks of thoughts, and these notions are the wheels to your motions, and your motions are the good, bad, or indifferent actions of your life.
You can be subliminally misled into making decisions that are solely based on another person’s thoughts and actions. Face it, people have missed out on millions of dollars and literally walked away from what they were designed to do, because they listened to someone who decided that what they should do, would not be worth the time and effort.
Just because other people do not want to attend a wealth building seminar, or listen to the quality material you choose to listen to, or attend a marriage seminar in order to better their marriage, don’t let their subliminal messages slip into your subconscious and cause you to make choices that are in the long run damaging and restrictive.
Remember, you have no one to blame for the house (life) you are now experiencing. You built it, now you have to live in it. If you don’t like what your life resembles, renovate it with the kind of quality materials (thoughts) that will improve your life, finances, business, and marriage; and you will be glad you did.
