Our brains produce as many as 50,000 thoughts per day (National Science Foundation) and ninety-five percent of these thoughts are repeated daily, reflecting the mindset or beliefs we hold that lead to those 50,000 thoughts.
Your mindset in turn governs your actions, which lead to your outcomes in life. In short, if you have a mindset that limits your potential, then you will likely accept limited outcomes in your life. For every outcome you experience a “reaction” that is reflected in your emotions and your physical body.
For example: If you got up this morning and thought “Today is going to be a bad day!” and for the rest of the day, you didn’t get the parking near the school, you ended up late for an appointment, you kicked your toe on the chair as you rushed in and sat down at your meeting. Is it possible that you would be feeling frustrated and about to explode, your breathing would be shallow and fast, your shoulders would be tense and sore or you might have a headache?
Imagine now if you repeated those thoughts every day for the rest of your life. Could your frustration turn to anger, and your tense shoulders turn to neck and back problems? This podcast explores the idea that Thought is Creative and how your mind language affects your whole body.
