The Law of Dual Thought says: ‘Thought is the combination of ideation and feeling. We can attach any feeling to a thought we want.’
I put it to the test.
A thought without a feeling is just the kernal of an idea or a naked fact. But when an idea has feeling attached to it, either positive or negative, it’s the feeling that gives the idea vitality… don’t we use adjectives to describe nouns in language to convey deeper meaning to the thing (noun) itself.
This week, I have begun to reshape the frame of feeling that surrounds the idea of the Digital Connections portion of the program. I can be what I will to be…but, only when I decide to add a positive mental attitude to information.
I am admittedly a novice when it comes to Blogs and using the internet to create a channel where you could develop a following of customers or even potential customers. Something wasn’t clicking for me. I listened faithfully and intently every Monday night, made lots of notes. But the words spoken or written were bouncing off me…not making any links to what I already knew and I was becoming progressively frustrated. I was embarrassed and then angry that I couldn’t seem to get this done…Then I wanted to point the finger of blame at somebody only to realize there are three fingers pointing back at me.
I felt like a pig looking at the stars…
You’ve probably heard the old Pennsylavania Dutch saying,
“The hurrieder I go, the behinder I get!…”.
When it came to my website I am getting behinder…
Not in blogs. I can write. But in figuring out how to apply various features like Opt-in pages and Autoresponders and free materials to offer…I would look at the pages and the how to tutorials and there was a sudden disconnect and shut down. That’s when the peptide-o-holic cocktail kicked in and I wrestled with the insecurity, lack of confidence old blueprint. Arghhh! … It was starting to compound in intensity.
During a sit, I thought the thought… I can choose what feeling I give to this part of the course. I choose pleasure over pain. I can relax instead of FIGHT. I can choose to say,
“This stuff is getting easier and easier… I will act, instead of react to my old blueprint garbage that does nothing for me except make me feel bad and push me off course. I will not blame anyone but work steadily to understand and solve my problem”.
That in and of itself has been freeing.
I am in process of overcoming this challenge.
The last DigiCONN session felt completely different.My thoughts were different. I kicked Ol’ Blue’s butt.
I will embrace not only the concepts and principles of social media, but my self-talk is now that ‘I persist until I master a dynamic and profitable web channel and my online business. Success is mine as I remain positively committed to chipping away one item at a time until I am fully functional on or before March 31, 2016.
BTW: I have a detailed plan for a complete personal makeover in Starting Jan 1, 2016.
