Change Your Thinking - Project Overview

Thursday, December 18, 2008


“Thoughts held in mind produce after their kind.”


Here is an overview of our Change your thinking - Change your life project. This post provides links to pertinent aspects of this project, so that you won't have to sift through the archives. If you are curious about our results, you can read the feedback posted here. You might also be interested in How We Turned It Around - a complete listing of the affirmations and and positive thoughts we created as we worked the project.

If you would like to try this project for yourself, you could start on Day One - My money and then continue on through the last day - Today is. Or, you could browse through the posts and work the project in no particular order.

This is an active blog, and if you post, we will notice and reply.. and give you the benefit of our own experience and our support if it seems pertinent or appropriate. Feel free to post your thoughts, ideas, results, joys and disappointments as you go. Even though we love you, comment spam is deleted when discovered, and anonymous posting is discouraged.

Wow! It's a new day!!

Wednesday, December 17, 2008

While we wait for me to wrap this project up, here is a really nifty quote culled from the comments this time around. It's what Karla wrote about how she starts her day. What do you think would happen if we at least tried to get out of bed with an attitude like this?

CottageByTheSea


My days start with anticipation. It's like someone has left this beautiful package on my dining room table and I anxiously hop out of bed, rushing out to see what gifts will be given to me each morning. What will I do? Who will I see? Where will I go? Who will I talk to, hug, laugh with? Wow, how blessed am I to have these presents given to me each and every day when I wake up? No wonder I don't need an alarm! It's like Christmas! Perhaps it's part of having a nosy and curious nature! Investigating each new day!

It's time now to come together and comment on how this project "worked" for you. Did you enjoy it? Was it helpful? Did you learn anything about yourself? Did you have an "aha" moment?

Here's a little teaser to get you started:

Finish this sentence with the first words that come into your mind:


I did the prosperity project this time around and ___________.


It occured to me that our "turn arounds" might make an interesting list, so, over the next few days, I'll be going back through our responses. I should have that post ready in a day or two. We did have some great participation this time, and I'm really curious to know what sort of an effect this particular project may have had for each of you. Your comments - positive as well as negative - would be greatly appreciated.

Today is

Finish this sentence with the first words that come into your mind:

Today is the ___________ day of my life.


If you like what you just said... that's great! If what you just said shows you something uncomfortable about yourself that you'd like to change, now is the time to take steps to make some changes. Start first with that thought, how can you rewrite the sentence in a more positive way, and still make it sound and feel true for you?

Remember, if you rewrite the sentence to be how you "wish" it was, or how you think it "should" be, or even how you "want" it to be, it will not have nearly the effectiveness as it will if you can rewrite it in such a way that you KNOW the truth of it.

When you have your alternative sentence firmly fixed in your mind, it will begin to operate automatically in your life, filtering out experiences and ideas that do NOT reflect that positive statement.

As always, we all love to see what other people write - so log on and share. Something you say might be really helpful to those of us who read it.
