How many times do I hear it? “I don’t have time to change my life!” Whether it’s from clients, students, my family or even that voice in my head, lack of time is the most common excuse for not making changes in our lives. But what if I told you that it’s not true; that it’s just an excuse? And that changing your life doesn’t need to take any longer than drinking a cup of tea?

Here’s a quick bonus article for you, from today’s Daily Sunshine email – we’re talking about how change needs to start with your thoughts.
“You won’t change your future if you keep thinking today’s thoughts.”
Our thoughts act like tiny messengers to the Universe, telling it and our unconscious mind what we want – and what we believe is possible.
If we have a dream or vision and regularly think thoughts about it being achievable, then it is likely to come to us.
But if we spend our time thinking about how it is unrealistic and unachievable – or difficult and we are not worthy of it – then that is what our future will hold.
Remember: our beliefs are like filters for what we see ‘out there’. If we believe something will be difficult, then we’ll spot the evidence that supports this. If we believe that something will flow and fall into place, then those are the opportunities and synchronicities that we will see.
So if you have been aiming towards a dream or vision, but finding progress is slow and hard, then it’s time to take a peek at those pesky thoughts, to see if they’re holding things back.
How do you spot what those thoughts and beliefs are?
There’s a simple way of telling. Complete the following sentence:
“I haven’t achieved my dream yet, because…”
The ‘because’ bit holds the key to the limiting beliefs, fears and prevailing thoughts that are holding you back – they’re also known as our ‘excuses’…
How do you handle these?
The easiest place to start is asking yourself the question:
“Is it really true…?”
… or is it just an excuse or a fear?
Once you have the answer to this, it puts you in a position to choose a thought that moves you closer to your dream. And you can choose your thoughts. It just takes practice (and a quieter mind helps, too! Need help with that? There’s always the 28 Day Meditation Challenge 😉 )
Wishing you a day full of sunshine and laughter.
