One would think that on some level that would be an admirable trait. But on the other hand, such intensity can be […]
I was 40 years old by the time I realized that I had a physical body. Or, to be more accurate, it wasn’t until that time that I considered that my physical self was as important as the rest of me. For years I have been considered a specialist in the realm of the mind, […]

RECIPE FOR MIND
A “non-negotiable habit” can be defined as being a behavior that is holding us back from what we truly want to achieve — be it better health, more vital energy, more success, greater abundance, or better relationships. Something that we are presently doing needs to change for us to get there and we can no longer justify or rationalize as to why we are not doing it. We also established that an awful lot of mind energy is expended on feeling bad that we are not doing it.
One of the most powerful things you can do is eavesdrop on the tug-o-war between warring factions in your own mind. (Although we often perceive our “self” as being singular, we are really made up of a lot of different facets, just like a jewel.)
For example, one side is vigorously resisting your urge to change, and that seems to hold you back from taking affirmative action. The other side cheers you on as it carries a higher vision of yourself and aspires for you to grow. While you remain caught in the middle between them a vast amount of your energy is being drained. Therefore, it’s no wonder you haven’t been able to motivate yourself to make those changes!
