Monitor your surroundings
A few days ago I was in Seattle, WA eating lunch near the Pikes Peak Market at the Ipanema Brazilian restaurant. There was a soccer match on T.V. and I had some time to really enjoy my lunch. As I was enjoying the great service and my lunch I heard the couple in the seat behind me talking. The young lady was complaining about the heater in her apartment, about her roommate, about the super who was not fixing the heater till later that week. I noticed and gave thanks for recognizing and deleting this conversation from my conscious. As the soccer match proceeded there was a foul called by the referee and you should have seen the theatrics the player displayed. I swear my 2 year old does not display such childish actions. Again I gave thanks for recognizing it and just enjoyed the sensation of the food on my plate and looked at the beautiful scenery around me.
I share this because I want to make you realize how easily negativity will find its way into your subconscious. When you are not paying attention to your surroundings and what is going on in people’s conversations around you, you may think that it does not affect you. But that is when you are letting down your conscious mind’s defenses. When you do not give attention to something it goes directly to your subconscious and that is what YOU DO NOT WANT concerning negative conversations or situations. Isn’t it ironic that you can’t let your guard down and fill your subconscious with positive thoughts? It takes work to be positive but the reward is that you can get success, health, and happiness when you are aware of what is going into your mind and prevent the negativity from getting to you.
By reading this blog it is my hope that you will become aware. Then you can control what you listen and watch. Soon you will catch yourself complaining and will stop and instead give thanks. Then you will see how things in your life change for the better.
Best wishes for your success. Feel free to share this with those you care about.
