We all wish to transform in life! We all want the intelligence which brings an ability to adapt that one spontaneous change. We all want to influence our own corner of the world of vicissitudes where we are impuissant to dig deep within and conquer the cognitive dissonance aroused by inconsistent beliefs and behaviour. Our behavioural pattern can be strengthened by reorienting the concept of ‘courage-change-self-reflection’ which will break the chain of ruinous thoughts and petrified opinions and free your soul from the fallacious reality.‘No Greater lie was ever told,’ that it’s the environment or the events, i.e. certain episodes in life which control our lives and have shaped us who we are today. It is not the episodes in life that shape us, but it is our belief system as to what those events mean; how we interpret them – that shapes us who we are and what are we going to become tomorrow. Beliefs are what makes the remarkable difference between a rejoicing contribution lifetime and misery and devastation. It is the ‘belief’ what causes an individual to become an Alpha; while others ‘lead the lives of confusion’.
Change is inevitable, so go beyond the way you live, don’t let your limited belief cage you in. Optimise a foundation of lifestyle filled with love, courage, trust, contentment, passion, inspiration, vitality, peace, abundance, nurturing relationships, purpose, prosperity and any other wonderful feeling you wish to experience, by trusting your instincts and seeing every challenge as an opportunity thus, “Failure is the opportunity to turn your wounds into wisdom”.
In times of great struggles in life, having a resilient spirit becomes an asset that seems to transform every challenge into desire opportunities for growth and development.
Can transformation happen overnight?
Growth is gradual and painful, change is painful but nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong. Good things take time to happen. If you are approaching to improve mental and physical well-being, then quality transformation takes time but definitely an exciting and a fruitful process! The good news is a small positive thought can change you overnight; to embark upon such self-transformation journey, you can get rid of the mediocrity mindset overnight by taking “baby steps” which ensures your success.
If you know what you want to achieve in life, then you self-inspire to change for the good. The art of life lies in constant motivation to readjust ourselves to our dynamic surroundings. “Transformation is nothing but a creative process and creativity requires courage, a highly prized virtue to success”.Let us see below how we can fabricate courage and a strong foundation of Self Transformation, bit-by-bit.
Positive affirmations and gratitude to unstoppable courage: A new age terminology refers to primarily fostering the belief of positive mental attitude and self-empowerment. Affirmations are the pronouncement of phrases governing to assertiveness. The life truly stems from our thoughts which we translate into words and eventually action in order to manifest our intention. Strong affirmation purifies our thoughts and cultivates the standard of thinking. Affirmation restructures the dynamics of our brain so that we truly begin to think positively.
‘I-m-possible’, nothing is impossible
I am a creative architect of my life and only I can build a strong foundation as per my will.
RIP my past and hello to the promising Future.
God has given me an immense talent and I will utilize it to get what I deserve
My business is growing, expanding and thriving
My ability to conquer my challenges is limitless; my potential to succeed is infinite.
Against all the odds, despite all the obstacles, I AM GOING TO MAKE IT.
Be grateful, nothing is mine and everything is of yours is the prayer should be offered daily to the divine. ‘Thankful pleasing’. Gratitude releases endorphins in your body which makes you feel good. The sense of gratitude helps you to cope up with stress and opens the door to immense happiness.
Affirmations should be recited daily, whenever you feel weak, you will notice the gradual positive change in your behaviour.
Upgrade your belief system to match your vision: Belief is that sense of certitude makes us tap into the resources that allow us to produce the intelligent & remarkable results. We all have the answers within us for virtually anything in the world or we have access to those answers which we try to source through others. Our belief is the glasses through which we view the world and anticipate what is likely to unfold by destiny. Thus, our behaviour should always be loyal to our belief.
To Create a Long term change,
First belief: We can change now
Second belief: We are responsible for our own deeds.
Third belief: Something must change
Fourth belief: We must not believe that things must change but believe in “I must change it”.
Fifth belief: Only we are the source of the change.
Transformation depends upon Integrity and virtue: ‘Love yourself first’ and ‘Respect yourself first’ and then to others. It is a positive influential interaction between the belief and behaviour toward ourselves. Feeling good about ourselves and maintaining positive ‘self-esteem’ is the most powerful and dominating motivator in the universe. The more you feel good about yourself the more you become persuasive. To maintain the Self-integrity you must take a potential step to sacrifice your habits which is a threat to your behavioural pattern and lead to self-destruction. It is the cognitive dissonance where a discomfort zone mentally arises from holding two or more inconsistent habits generally leads to conflict between our behavioural pattern and belief. For example, if you believe binge drinking, smoking or drug abuse is devastating for health but you still continue to do it, you experience a conflict between your behaviour and belief.
We can reduce cognitive dissonance,
By Reducing slowly the importance of the contradictory belief.
Focus on more empowering beliefs that offset the dissonant belief or behaviour.
Finding the right source to change your mindset for e.g. The Right Role Model.
Rationalization and denial when you feel like consuming unhealthy substances.
Make your life a mission with a perfect vision: If you don’t have a clear depiction for the life you want to spend in future then you will be unable to encompass your mission statements in life. We must all have that clear mental picture, where we see us standing in the next 5 or 10 years and as per the vision statement we can set our mission principles and values for our actions’ and behaviours’ of how we want to start accomplishing till we actually reach there.
Exercise for physical & mental well-being: The most crucial part in the cycle of transforming regime is physical activities. Our body is actually meant to move, it craves for exercise. Workouts like Cardio, Yoga or Gym helps sweat up can manage physical and mental stress by burning the calories and the stress in the form of sweat. Along with the physical outcome, Regular exercise can have a profoundly positive impact on depression, anxiety, ADHD, and more. It also relieves stress, improves memory, helps you sleep better, and boosts your overall mood. While exercising, the body releases two essential elements ‘endorphins and serotonin’ which vastly improve cognition’s due to oxygen flow into the brain, which reduces brain-bound free radicals.
The human spirit is stronger than any odd that can happen to it. Nobody just can beat the soul within which doesn’t want to give up. Don’t let today’s trouble bring you down and don’t let life’s obstacles fear you. “Believe in your heart that you deserve to live a life full of passion, purpose, magic and miracles.”
