Time For Your “Mind Gym” – What’s Your Story?


So what’s your story?
No, I’m not asking you to narrate how you lived since birth till now.
No, I’m not referring to those recent challenges you faced, or how.
Noooo, I’m not requesting you open the floodgates of thoughts you normally disallow….
Oh my! You’re talkative today; you know? 🙂

The story intriguing me, today, is about an area in your life that you always wanted to change, or improve, but never really started.

I’d like you to gather your thoughts around why you didn’t initiate the change till now. Notice the justifications you provide just to keep it all too guarded.

You think these are valid reasons that lead to the delay. Think again: are these truly reasons, or mere excuses? Both are what your mind introduces to hinder that start.

And the story commences each time you recount to yourself, & sometimes to others, what you want to do then directly justify why you cannot. As if your mind commits an act of treason to your heart with every reason offered to keep the “action taking” phase behind locked bars.

“The story you tell yourself for why you never start life changes, with time, magnifies. Break it into smaller steps & incremental changes will eventually actualize.” ~ 3Ds

You do need to transform that narration, though, before you embark. Let your heart speak what the change will bring you & how happiness will ultimately spa. On that instant beginning, allow it to have its call mark.

Let it say: “Enough delay!! i deserve a better life & I’ll find a way. No more reasons, excuses, hesitation, or dismay. I’ll do something differently day by day!!”

Absolutely stunning “change” starts with just a “move”; and that is just a thought away. Think it…. Again, with your heart….

Who’d have thought that the turtle would beat the rabbit in the long run, ha?

I have a brilliant idea: Let’s start messing with the circumstances & twitch things slowly today, ok?

Apres vous…

    Great food for thought and help for people to finally initiate changes they have put off or been afraid of. It also made me remember a change I wanted to make many decades ago and to examine whether the excuses I used for not having done this were valid. It’s a bit too personal to go into here, but thanks for helping me to think about it. It is really too late for that particular thing to happen, whether through incremental, small steps or otherwise, but it’s always beneficial to examine our own thought processes to see if the same type of thinking is still in place now, and still holding us back.

      Many thanks for taking the time to read & comment Iris 🙂 Yes, I am sure many times we have valid reasons not to initiate action. We are connected to a wide ecological system that needs consideration in many areas. There are things – & I hear it all the time – where excuses are offered (not valid reasons). They just make people feel better about not taking charge. I hope you never get there Iris 🙂 I know I have been delaying taking charge on something (so I’m helping myself out writing about it 🙂 🙂 🙂 )
      thanks again my friend 🙂
