I was reading through Rachel Cosgrove's book, The Female Body Breakthrough, and I came across an interesting statistic, and visual tool that she uses and I would like to share with all of you. She wrote that according to the National Science Foundation, you are bombarded with about 50,000 thoughts per day, and since you only have so many thoughts each day you can't afford to waste any on negative ones. Every thought you have will either empower or dis empower you. She used the visual tool of being a computer programmer, which is as follows:
You are your own computer programmer. You have the ability to write the computer program that will create the person you want to become. You have about 50,000 commands (thoughts) to send to your computer (brain) every day. If you use the right commands, they will program you to become what you want. Every thought you have is another programming message to your brain instructing it, just like a computer, to tell your body to behave a certain way. The one thing you have total control over is every thought you let enter your head, and therefore what you program your brain to tell your body to become. You must program your brain. Be aware of how you talk to yourself and what you think to yourself daily. Every thought is a message taking you closer to becoming the person you want or farther away. You are programming yourself, and you have total control. Whenever you become aware of a repetitive negative thought or programming message, ask yourself: Are you giving your body the commands it needs to create the program to become the person you want to be, and are you using your 50,000 commands a day to the best of your advantage?
