I am convinced that your brain will automatically cause you to follow and carryout any instructions it receives from your mind.
When I talk about your brain I mean the organ housed in your head that controls everything about your physical, mental and emotional being.
When I talk about your mind I mean your conscious awareness—yes, your consciousness is your mind.
I must clarify what I mean when I stated “Any behavior.”
We must recognize that we do have some physical and mental limitations. For example: I am 78 years old and 5’6” tall… I believe that I’d have a tough time holding down a starting position on a professional basketball team—I’m a little short and a little old. Some people have brain injury or illness and do not have the ability think to clearly or recall accurately.
Taking into consideration any true limitations you may have, I am convinced that your brain will produce any behavior your mind instructs it to produce. Well, if that is true, then I am sure the next question is: how do you get your mind to tell your brain how to act and feel. I mean, how do you say to yourself: I’m going to quit smoking; I’m going to stop eating so much and start exercising; I’m going to stop my procrastination; I’m going to stop being stressed-out and anxious; I’m going to get over my fear of heights; I’m going to get rid of being anxious about public speaking… how do I say any of these things and then have it all happen automatically? What I am saying is, let’s not create limitations that we don’t have by perceiving that we can’t or shouldn’t.
How do you get your mind to tell your brain to create the behavior you want?
