I have just returned from Brendan Buchard’s ‘Expert’s Academy’. Aside from the great training, high-energy atmosphere and interesting guest speakers, it was wonderful to interact with such a large group of like-minded, determined, creative and ambitious people.
Everyone I met was interesting, motivated and energetic about their particular field, and each person was more different than the next!
One of the guest speakers was Brian Tracey, it was a real treat to see this man live, a real inspiration. I wrote down a ton of notes and some things that he said really resonated with me.
But one thing that really stuck in my mind was when he said ‘you become what you think about most of the time’.
You become what you think about most of the time…
What are you thinking about most of the time?
What do you think about first when you wake up in the morning?
What do you think about as you are traveling to work?
What’s in your mind at the end of the day?
I have always believed that if you can dream it, you can do it.
But the idea that consistent thought will manifest itself in your reality is something that sounds so true and yet has never quite occurred to me in this way before.
When I think about it there are so many examples.
I have been blessed to meet and work with many people who have made a decision and kept a goal in mind until it was in their consistent thoughts. The result? They became what they had dreamed of.
A few hours ago as I walked through Zurich airport I met a couple who had been at the Experts Academy. I don’t even know their names but they told me their beautiful story of transformation.
The young man had been working in a corporate environment; he described it as frenetic, stressed and out of control, it was all he thought about and it was paying a severe toll in his life. He was following his father’s footsteps. Then seven years ago his father died of a heart attack.
He decided that he didn’t want to live his life this way anymore and began to think about what he could do. He thought about the field of exercise and nutrition as it had been an interest of his. And that consistent thought was what he became. He vastly improved his physique and his health, has made a business and lifestyle out of it and it has transformed his life and that of his family.
So I ask you again, what are you thinking about most of the time?
What are the stories you are telling yourself to keep you in this way of thinking? Are they serving you well?
I’d love to hear about a thought that would help you transform your life.
And as you start to think it ‘about most of the time’, know that you will become it!© Copyright 2011 Lisa Bloom
