LIAM 062 – Stop Rehearsing Your Failures

Released Friday, 6th February 2015
Good episode? Give it some love!
The life you rehearse the most will be the life you live! Most of us want to live amazing lives filled with success, happiness, and love. However, most of us rehearse--in our thoughts, words, and actions--the very life we do not want to live! Listen as I talk about rehearsing the life of your dreams!

Show Outline:

We are all writers. 24/7 we are writing and rewriting the story of our lives
Session 58 - Life is only a reflection, Bruce, of whatever you say.
Visualizing the life you want is the most important part of getting the life you want

Life Plan - visualize your dream life, voices from the past, perfect wheel spoke

Olympic divers, pole vaulters, high jumpers, visualize every step, pull twist, -- victory

They are rehearsing

Most of us spend more time reliving, rehearsing, if you will, the past, our failures, instead of what we want
We replay our mistakes, poor choices, words we wish we could take back
We replay--like Session 60, the Great Cloud of Witnesses--what others have said or done that hurt or upset us
Actors rehearse their parts with such focus, they take on the personality of the character
Same with us--we become what we think about
We create what we focus on
We get really good at what we spend the most time doing
What we rehearse becomes how we see ourselves, what we think about ourselves and the world
"How I see myself is how others will see me." - Steven Web
Focus on what you want
Rewrite the script of the part you want to play today, tomorrow and the rest of your life
Start rehearsing that role
There is some truth to the phrase "fake it until you make it"
Everyone starts at the beginning.

We want to ride a bike, we see ourselves as a bike rider, we keep practicing until it becomes something we do naturally

Start today! Start being, right now, the person you want to be tomorrow!
