Good day everyone. How are you doing at becoming more conscious of your courses of thought? Starting off as we did with the Dominant Emotions makes that all a lot easier. From there you can build the skills to make that change until you don’t even notice you’re doing it.
This is Alexi Panos. Her points are obvious in the video and she does a good job of expressing them. As one friend pointed out, the only strange part is: why are all of these success gurus all gorgeous people who live near a beach? He has a point. It is a curious thing that so many of these videos are from beautiful people living in California, but then maybe a place famous for shallowness is also the sort of place that would encourage great depth in a counter-intuitive way. I’m working on some videos myself so I’ll make sure to put some up where you’ll be really certain that you can still achieve all of that while still being an entirely ordinary-looking person. 😉
Continue to observe your thinking and its impact on your behaviour. It seems so simple right? How could it be accomplishing so much? But I assure you, that awareness is what’s key. You can’t change you until you’re aware of what you’re really doing. Once you’re aware your wisdom will naturally kick in. On Monday we’ll pick back up and focus on tricks you can use to make your shift. Until then, have an awesome weekend everyone!
Scott McPherson is an Edmonton-based writer, public speaker, and mindfulness facilitator who works with individuals, companies and non-profit organizations around the world.
A serious childhood brain injury lead Scott to spend his entire life meditating on the concepts of thought, consciousness, reality and identity. It made others as strange to him as he was to them. When he realized people were confused by their own over-thinking, Scott began teaching others to understand reality. He is currently CBC Radio Active’s Wellness Columnist, as well as a writer, speaker and mindfulness instructor based in Edmonton, AB where he still finds it strange to write about himself in the third person.
