Feelings follow imagery
Feelings follow imagery: A story about pancakes. 🥞 **SCROLL DOWN**
We were talking about visualization in the Make the Monies Mastermind orientation call last week.
(You’re still welcome to join 😀)
Visualizing your ideal life and business can feel a little abstract.
I find visualization easier when I can think of an OBJECT.
Right now, my resonant object happens to be a pancake. 🥞
I’ve been tired lately. I’m a little worn down.
We’ve been running a launch and I’ve been chomping at the bit to just GET to the thing and start getting messy with our new Mastermind group.
Entrepreneurs know what I mean.
When I’m tired and worn down, my brain lets more negative thoughts slip through.
So here’s what I’ve been trying:
When I get that negative thought, I flip the pancake. 🙃 🥞
I flip the negative and immediately think about the reverse.
I say the opposite.
❌ Negative thought: “I spent all day catching up and had no time for what I actually wanted to do.”🥞
Pancake thought: “I spent all day catching up so tomorrow I’ll have lots of time to do what I want to do.”It works. It’s nice. It helps.
And I know it sounds overly simplistic. Maybe even dismissive.
But the negative thought is just a thought. Thoughts are not facts. But our bodies and brains believe the thoughts. 🧠
So you can flip it to a different thought. Make your body and brain believe the positive one instead.
Don’t push the negative out. Flip the perspective. ✨
Don’t fight it. Just flip it.It takes practice, but it sure makes for a better day.And better days add up to better weeks, months, years, and LIVES.
Hope you’re enjoying a great pancake breakfast this morning! 🇺🇸 🥞
