Events in your life are what shape your feelings. The events are what create the neurological network in your brain. They’re what create your identity.
If you find you’re out of sequence in life, emotionally addicted… If you find yourself not where you want to be, then there’s a high probability you are holding on to situations that no longer serve you. You are living in cause and effect.
If you’ve been a career underachiever or an under-earner… but you know you have the talent, you know you have the goods, then there’s a reason that you do what you do.
Unfortunately, a large percent of society lives in denial. In denial, some of the most common words and phrases that people use are…
“I don’t know.”
“I’m not sure.”
“I don’t know why I do this.”
“I don’t know why I ate the cheesecake last night when I wasn’t hungry.”
“I don’t know why I filled my plate.”
“I don’t know why I had a glass of wine when I intended not to have one.”
Well… there is a REASON!
The reason is the cause.
Most people live in the effect. You don’t want to live that way anymore do you?
I didn’t think so…
That’s why I am going to walk you through how to break down the cause that creates the effect so you can move out of struggle and into success. I’m going to assist you to move out of the 80% the population that are strugglers and into the 20% of people who actually take action to change their life.
One of the most common effects I see that affects people is procrastination. Procrastination means to avoid. What typically happens is there’s something you’ve been avoiding because of the emotional story you have about a potential outcome that could be painful.
This is a very common effect of why people do what they do.
The time is now to gain a really good understanding and emotional awareness of why you do what you do.
A series of events and your feelings about the events are what create your identity. Your identity is going to lead to your belief. Your belief is either that you are certain or you are uncertain. When you are uncertain, your body goes into a place called fight or flight… meaning your body freezes or wants to run.
In that state, you are in survival and there is not room for creation.
Your subconscious, unconscious, and your conscious mind are your memory. In your memory, you know everything that happened, but a lot of times, you don’t remember what happened. Even though you might know it… you spend a great deal of time in denial.
This is unequivocally why many people do what they do.
They spend their time getting ready to get ready. If you find yourself unorganized and specifically overwhelmed, there is a reason that happens.
Now, you can go to every seminar, workshop, rally, convention… you can read books, listen to audios, and they will greatly assist you, but if you don’t realize and understand the cause that creates the effect, you will perpetuate a brain chemistry that keeps you doing the same thing over and over.
Breaking It Down
Here’s what I want you to do…
Take out a piece of paper and a pen. List out 2-3 situations where you are struggling. Are you procrastinating, carrying guilt, unorganized, not setting boundaries with your children or a co-worker? Remember… these are effects.
Now, revisit how these effects have shown up in your life repeatedly. Trace back the cause from your past events as long ago as to your childhood.
What are you finding out?
In order to change… you require this awareness of why you do what you do. When you know why you do it… you have the power to make a different choice, to create a new brain chemistry, and change your identity that no longer serves you.
This is empowering!
