Challenge Lesson 2
I Know What I Don’t Want!
“It is easier to know what it is you do not want vs. what it is you do want”
If someone asked you “What is it that you want” that can be a hard question and involve taking time to think about it. But….if someone came up and asked you, “What is it that you don’t want in your life?” That can be easier. The answers seem to just flow.
The most resistance
A lot of times the loudest voice we hear is the thing with the most resistance. Such as…the things we don’t want. Those cause us the most discomfort.
Grab a piece of paper and write “What I Don’t Want” on the top left side of the paper. (This is your left column)
Now let the answers Flow….write until you think you have most of the “don’t wants” written out.
On the right side of the paper at the top, write “What I Do Want.”
Directly across from your “do not want” write what the opposite of that is, the “I Want.”
Don’t Want – feeling tired
I Want – Energy and to feel good
I Don’t Want _______________ which means I Do Want ____________.
Read these a couple times a week and start to train your thinking patterns. The more you train yourself to focus on the “I Want” or the opposite of what you do not want then your thought patterns shift with it. It makes it easier and easier to find the “I Want” much quicker.
What You Focus On Is What You Get More Of
I am sure you have heard “what you focus on is what you get more of.”
Why is that true? Where you focus and put your energy….. “I hate _____” the more negative your mind goes. In turn, your emotions like frustration, anger, or despair grow as you continue to on the things that you don’t like.
The more you can focus on the little things that make you happy, excited or motivated. In turn, your mind and emotion follow with feeling happier, a little more full…..of hope.
Keep this in mind today.
Create your list of what you don’t want and what you do want. Purposefully focus on the things you DO WANT in your life today. If you start to shift to what you DON’T WANT remember the opposite of what that means you do want.
We will work through the ways to strengthen your focus over the next 8 Weeks together. Today is about creating that awareness list.
Train your brain thought patterns by re-visiting this exercise a couple times a week!
Create your “Do Not Want” list
The opposite helps you create your “I Want” List
Make sure you are connected to each other.
