We think with words; so, what do you think?!
What we think impacts our brain neurochemistry and physiology. Thoughts can also shape the function of our brain. Thinking can be habitual; and requires our conscious effort to alter it. Where our head goes, our body follows. If you wonder about that, simply take a hold of someones ear, and tug, they generally yield if conscious!
CHANGE vs IMPROVEMENT
Many individuals want a different outcome or different situation. However, a change does not necessarily mean an improvement. Some automatically assume a change is an improvement. Things cannot improve without changing, but not every change is an improvement. The distinction needs to be realized in order to better prepare and plan. Most prefer improvement even if they balk at a change!
REMEMBER vs DON’T FORGET
“What’s the difference?” is the typical response when this distinction is pointed out. There are several; REMEMBER is positive; DON’T FORGET has a negative connotation. DON’T FORGET also provides a choice to do (not)forget. REMEMBER focuses the emphasis on remembering. DON’T FORGET gives you a choice to do forget or do not forget.
It is easier to be negative. Vigilance of our spoken and unspoken words can be a step in the correct direction to modify our habits of thinking and doing!
