Conscious Choices

“Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life thinking it is stupid.” Albert Einstein

Each word listed below, a decision maker, has the potential for both positive and negative choices.

Can or Can’t

Do or Don’t

Will or Won’t

Should or  Shouldn’t

Could or Couldn’t

Am or Ain’t

Creating statements and making decisions based on these, has a positive or negative effect on your brain. The left column represents the positive choices and the right represents the negative choices. The left shows you that you ARE capable of doing anything whereas the right column all uses the contraction NOT telling your brain you are unable to doing anything.

For example: You have a weight loss goal. You’re working out, changing your diet, and taking care of yourself. You believe you CAN reach your ideal goal in six months. In steps a family member, friend, or co-worker and begins to tell you that you CAN’T and that your goal is NOT realistic. You DON’T get the support you want. If you choose to listen to them, your lower brain reacts and encourages you to slack and you WON’T succeed. But, you choose to listen to the people telling you that you CAN DO this and they give you support. Your higher brain reacts positively and you’re encouraged to reach your goal and succeed! You created a statement to yourself by saying, “I AM going to reach my goal. I AM successful at it”. And you complete your goal.

 Your words represent your choices. You always have a choice. What words will you choose?

Think about it.
