Time to Believe Something New?

Happy Friday evening, my friends. We have just completed our first week on Kauai. For the first time ever we are working our jobs from here. It’s something we wanted to try for years. It’s worked out great!

We get up at 3 a.m. Hawaii time and work until 11. Then we have the whole afternoon to play. Finally, we’re off to bed at dark to do it all over again. We’ll do it again next week.

This place always brings insight. I was thinking this afternoon how committed we are to maintaining our ideas about the world even when it’s clear we’ve outgrown them.

Tradition, social pressure, even the habitual gravity of our own thinking van hold us right where we are long after it makes sense.

Even our politics has a derogatory word for someone who changes their mind – flip-flopper. So committed are we to being committed to old paradigms that we punish leaders who evolve in their thinking.

What about you and me? I’m willing to bet there’s at least one area of your life right now that you’re holding on to ideas you no longer hold because it’s easier and safer.

We are evolutionary beings. Have the courage to choose new beliefs. People might not like it. They may feel betrayed, but it serves no one to keep being who you no longer are.

Wherever you are on your journey today, remember you’re awesome!

I am the Founder of The Affirmation Spot, author of Annuanki Awakening, and co-founder of 6 Sense Media. My latest books are the Anunnaki Awakening: Revelation (Book 1 of a trilogy) and The Power to Be You: 417 Daily Thoughts and Affirmations for Empowerment. I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company. I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
