We all have word tracks in our heads that determine every decision we make. Many times these word tracks are limiting and destructive to living the life we truly want to be living. Unless explored, most don't even realize these word tracks are deep within their mind and limit them in many ways. Once you identify the current word tracks you have in your mind, you can then determine if these deep rooted beliefs are helping you move ahead or are keeping you stuck. If you find yourself stuck, the next step is to determine the words that would support the direction you want to take your life.
An example of this would be: Be the example that others can follow.
With every decision you make, this is the measuring stick you would use. Ask yourself, am I being the example that others can follow in this situation. This would apply to both work and personal parts of our lives. Here is a very basic example - Take your dog for a walk. An old conditioned word track might have been, nobody picks up after their dog, so why should I? With your new word track "Be the example that others can follow", you would pick up after your dog, and while you are bending over anyway, pick up some garbage on the curb and disgard of all of it together when you get home. This is the type of small change in your words and actions that will affect every aspect of your life in a positive direction.
The word tracks you choose are personal to you and are meant to support the type of life you want to be living. Take the time to explore your current word tracks....you will realize and identify the many limitations you have bought into, and that is the first step to making changes that support the direction you want to go.
