Like a compass, a GPS, or a ship bow, we have to input our future destination and then point in that direction so that we can get there! What happens if we input our current location? We turn in circles? End up where we began (with used up energy)? Never get started? Right. So why would we approach LIFE, which is infinitely larger and more important than a road trip, by inputting the past or our current dismal location into our daily plans over and over again? Why would we re-live, re-hash, and regurgitate past mistakes or the inflictions of pain caused by others, if we want to heal and end up in a more beautiful, healthy place in the future? Our subconscious mind tries HARD to accomplish and recreate exactly what we focus on. What are you logging in as a destination, via your thoughts, words, and conversations? What directions are you giving your mind to move forward, progress, and to grow? If you want to arrive at the healthy place you desire, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, put your eye on the prize, put the energy in motion (thoughts, words, prayer, and love), and don't quit until you arrive.
"Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks." - Matthew 12:34. Input = output. If your daily story is "woe is me," you will likely find that your input is what is keeping you stuck. Shift your focus FIRST (before you expect progress) and you will likely find yourself on an enjoyable journey to your personal best destination!
