Five Habits to Expand Your Thinking
Our thoughts create our reality, so it makes sense that by thinking big, you’ll create a big life for yourself on all levels – spiritual, emotional, and physical. The five habits below will help you expand your thinking, and as a result, expand your life.
1. Your choices create your outcomes.
In order to create something for yourself, you have to decide that what you want is yours now, not a week from now, a month from now, five years from now. Get into the feeling place of what it feels like to have or be what you want, and then make the necessary changes in your life to create it. This may be uncomfortable at times and you may be stepping outside of your comfort zone, but by keeping the vision of what you want in mind, you get clearer, and you make your decisions based on your vision. Think about making your decisions from a place of already having what you want, not from where you are now. Decide to keep stepping into your “yes.”
2. Your habits create your outcomes.
If you want to be a marathon runner, develop the habits of a marathon runner. If you want to be a millionaire, develop the habits of a millionaire. If you want to be healthy, develop the habits of someone who is healthy. Think and act from the place of where you want to be. Your physical and personal habits need to be in alignment with your vision.
3. Your environments create your outcomes.
Do you love where you live and work? Create an environment that supports you and your vision. An environment that is in alignment with your vision frees you to focus your energy on achieving your dream. How about your emotional environment? Are the people around you supportive of your vision and your dreams? The environment that created the you that you are now may not be the environment that is going to create the you that you want to be. What about your intellectual environment? Pay attention to how the people around you think. Be around people who think positive and who think big as much as you can. If you’re around people who worry and fear, remember that fear and worry are not truth, and try to limit interactions with negative people. Set up a support system that works for you.
4. Continually raise your abundance thermometer.
We live in an abundant universe and there is enough of everything for everyone. Everything we could possibly need or want is available to us, if only we allow it into our experience. You can’t manifest abundance with a scarcity mindset. Expect abundance in your life and allow yourself to receive it on all levels – spiritual, emotional and physical.
5. Focus on the “why.”
Why do you want what you want? Tap into your life’s purpose and your passion. Once you’ve identified what your passion and purpose are, it becomes easier to line up with living authentically to let your life reflect that purpose in all aspects. When you consider why you want something, your vibration usually shifts toward your desire. Whenever you consider how it will happen, or when, or who will bring it to you, your vibration usually shifts back toward the problem and all the reasons why you can’t have it.
By implementing all of these habits in your life, you will find your energy shifting. If implementing all of them at once feels too overwhelming, start with one new habit at a time. People will ask you what you’re doing differently, what your “secret” is. Your life will expand.
