You become what you think most of the time

A reflection on how our way of thinking can boost our personal development.

Regardless of whether what you think about is something you want or if it is something you don’t want, when you think about it you open the door to it. And you do it with greater intensity the greater the emotional charge with which you think about it.

For example, let’s say you want to earn more money; then you can think that you don’t have money, that you never had it, how difficult it is to get it, how long you’ve been wanting it without getting results, in everything you’ve tried, without making great progress… And while you do this you feel sad, frustrated, angry.

Emotions are radiofrequency waves that emit a message, it’s as if you were telling the universe: I want more of what I’m feeling. And the universe always responds.

A practical exercise: the “would be great” exercise

Practice this: think of, or even say out loud, phrases that start with “that would be great”. I invite you to practice it right now: choose a topic that you would like better and say sentences related to it that start with “it would be great”

For example:

  • It would be great to be able to earn more money,
  • It would be great to have a better standard of living
  • It would be great to learn new things with which to obtain sources of income
  • It would be great to be able to save
  • It would be great to learn how to manage my money
  • It would be great to meet a financial mentor
  • It would be great to attend courses and seminars on financial intelligence
  • It would be great to meet inspiring people to grow financially with

Do you see what happens? Do you notice how your emotional state has grown towards a happier one? At least a little. That’s what it’s about.

So be very careful what you’re thinking, and even more so, take care of how you’re feeling.

And if you’re not feeling good, then your job is just to feel a little better, not good, but a little better.

It is impossible to go from feeling angry to feeling happy, but it is possible to go from feeling angry to feeling indifferent, from there to feeling slightly optimistic and thus moving on to a slightly better state.

So if you want your reality to improve, pay attention to what you think, and focus on what you want, not what you don’t want, or the absence of what you want.

Tools that help keep you focused on what you want

These two resources can help you a lot

A display box

It is a place on the wall, on a cork or anywhere you see often, where you put photos of what you want, it can be things (a car, a house, new clothes) or maybe attract new friends, a new job, etc. To give it greater power, place photos in which you appear with what you want: If it’s a car, go to the dealership and take photos with it, touch it, and feel your dream. The same if it is a house.

The visualization box will give you a long-term vision. Of course, you can change it to your liking as your preferences change or as you achieve your dreams.

A next-step card

This card must have the concrete next steps towards your vision written on it. It can be signing up for a new activity to meet people, finding a good coach or therapist to help me, choosing a good training to learn something new, getting a new job, saving a certain amount of money… It is something tangible and realistic and can achieve in the next few weeks or at most one or two months. This will give you concreteness and “ground” your dreams.
