Your thoughts create reality. Sure, you say. This is not a new concept. Obviously, we are affected by the constant barrage of  internal and external influences we endure on a daily basis. Marketing companies alone spend hours each day figuring out how to expose us to thoughts that drive us to purchasing their products.

 

 

If thoughts didn’t matter, these ads and their advertisers wouldn’t exist.

That’s why we all need to understand how truly powerful this idea is:  Whatever we think about consciously and subconsciously manifests in our daily life. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In other words, what we focus on grows bigger in our daily lives, and what we ignore grows smaller.

This concept applies to everything, including all the negative, self-limiting, and doubting thoughts that hold us back, as well as the confident, determined, supportive thoughts that propel us into positive action.

While you may give thought to what you eat on a daily basis, making sure it’s healthy and good f or you, do you do the same with your thoughts?

 

 

Remember, it takes vigilance to examine and if necessary, to remove the thoughts that run through our minds. And yet, how successful could anyone be with an inner dialogue that repeats “you can’t do it.”  Ask any successful person and they’ll tell you the same thing: while they may have had that voice in their head, they chose not to listen to it.

Next time you are standing in front of a mirror, take a few minutes to look at yourself.  I mean really look at yourself. While you’re there, quiet your mind and listen to the thoughts that come next.  Don’t be discouraged if you hear nothing, or have trouble quieting your mind. You may even find that you have a hard time looking at yourself.  This is a form of meditation and it takes practice and patience.

Here is an excerpt from my book, SEVEN STEPS TO INNER POWER, where I discuss the topic of Mistakes.

Mistakes Are Your Feedback System

Tae Yun Kim

The second principle of mental conduct is to learn from your mistakes.  In the preceding section, I talked about how we are constantly evaluating ourselves as if we are onstage and how we tend to hide our weaknesses to put ourselves in a better light, thereby hoping to give ourselves a higher performance rating. For the same reason, we tend to hide our mistakes. Just as we think a good performer shouldn't be weak, we think a good performer shouldn't make mistakes. So when we do make a mistake, we believe that the more quickly we get it out of sight and move on, the better. Think about it for a moment. When we have made a mistake, one of the things we immediately do is try to cover it up, make excuses for it, or justify it.  We’ll do almost anything to get away from it rather than look long and hard at it.

What we don't realize is that mistakes are part of a natural feedback system when we are learning a task or accomplishing a goal. That’s all.

Imagine a gymnastics student learning to do a back flip for the first time. As he strives to imitate the movement as best he can, the teacher tells him two things: what he did correctly, and what he did incorrectly. That is called positive and negative feedback. The positive feedback describes his right action, and the negative feedback describes his mistakes. Can you see how knowledge of mistakes is as important in the learning process as knowledge of right actions? When you know what is not correct, you can then consciously strive to avoid the mistake and duplicate the right action. Precise knowledge of correct and incorrect, then, forms the basis of our conscious choices and actions, and that speeds up the learning process.

Tae Yun Kim

Now imagine a person striving to get promoted in her workplace. Perhaps she calls attention to herself by bragging and showing off.  To make herself look better, she calls attention to deficiencies in coworkers. After a while, she is fired instead of promoted. Did she make a mistake? Absolutely. She must now regard that mistake as feedback on what not to do to get a promotion. She still has to learn what she needs to do, of course, and may make more mistakes in the process of finding the right action to take.

 

The key is to keep going. She must not let her mistakes be excuses for giving up or allow her self-condemnation to paralyze her future actions. If her goal is worth achieving, she must be willing to persist through every form of failure, always regarding it as a learning experience, as feedback, until she hits upon the right action for success.

Here is an excerpt from my book, SEVEN STEPS TO INNER POWER, where I discuss the topic of Awareness:

Awareness Happens Only Now   True awareness means being right where you are, right now, without fear or worry or obsession about the future or past. When you manage to do that, a wonderful thing happens. Focused here, now, you become undistracted. You find yourself becoming mentally quiet. And when that happens, you “hear” your Silent Master quite clearly. You perceive all around you quite clearly. You find yourself knowing what to do—now, ten minutes from now, or tomorrow. As a result, you consistently find yourself in the right place at the right time. Why? Because living in the present moment is an act of surrender to the greater intelligence of your Silent Master, the greater intelligence of life itself. In this listening state, moment by moment you feel and respond to Its promptings. It is “guiding” you; we can also say that you and your Silent Master are moving together as One.

“I have to plan,” you may say. “I have to think about what I’m going to do ten minutes from now, or tomorrow, or it won’t happen.” Yes, you should make plans in the present moment. You don’t ever stop thinking, but be watchful to keep yourself open to new incoming ideas that may change what you plan. The point is to be aware every moment of what you are thinking, because whatever is going on now is on the way to manifesting. How important it is, then, to keep everything you don’t want out of your moment to moment consciousness. How can you do that if you’re not focused here, now?

When you can seize control of the now moment, you take intelligent control of your life.

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes
Usually there is an all too human tendency to give in to your past, unwanted Self-Concept even while you're trying to change it. When it comes time to let go of Self-Concepts like I'm an angry person, I'm a worrier, I'm a sad person, I'm a sick person, I'm a “workaholic, or even, I'm a doctor, I'm a waiter, or whatever, this may feel like a supreme sacrifice. Since your present self is all you know, you may feel like the sacrifice of your undesirable traits, whatever they are, is a loss, not a gain. You may feel you're losing yourself.

 Be Willing To Sacrifice a Worn-Out Self-Concept

You may say, "Of course, I'm willing to change. I want a new life. I want to become who I really am." You may feel highly motivated.Dr Tae Yun Kim QuotesIt's good that you say these words, but putting these words into action requires letting go of old Self-Concepts that may be bound tightly to your personality. This is why I stress the inner power step of sacrifice as you get ready for Self Discovery. Your willingness to change must be accompanied by a strong motivation to sacrifice certain aspects of yourself that are not truly you. Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

Dr. Tae Yun Kim Quotes

"Sacrifice

 When you have a goal that is a priority, and when you commit your total loyalty to this cause, you will undoubtedly make decisions about competing priorities in your life.

Remember the example of preparing to train for a marathon race? Attending every party in town could not be an equal priority to working out every day. One or the other must be chosen, the other sacrificed.

When your Silent Master gives you a desire, It will never ask you to sacrifice something you need. That is contrary to Its nature of love. When you find yourself at a crossroads and you must make a choice, look closely to see if the so called sacrifice is really a loss. Usually, the things we give up to achieve a goal are no longer needed or are unworthy of keeping. If you give up laziness to keep your workout schedule, is that a loss? If you give up fear while learning something new, is that a loss? If you give up smoking to train for the race, is that a loss?

When we discussed increase and decrease with the yin-yang symbol, we said that every decrease (the black yin area) carries with it the seed of some new increase (the white dot in the black). Decrease is destined to turn into increase. So, even a real sacrifice is not ever really a loss. It is preparation for a new condition.

Many times it appears we are forced into a crossroads situation and we have to make a choice, a sacrifice. Sometimes, however, we can freely and willingly sacrifice certain states of mind to make room for the new.

The word “sacrifice” is derived from the Latin words sacer, meaning holy, and facer, meaning “to make.” Sacrifice means “to make holy.” So, when you sacrifice your weaknesses, fears, and limitations, you’re actually loving yourself, making yourself holy by expressing your truth and purity This is a joyful, expanding process, no matter how painful it may appear on the surface.

Sacrifice leads to patience."

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

"Loyalty is a supreme act of love. Suppose you had a friend who gave you money when you were out of work, gave you a place to live when you had no home, saved your life when you were in trouble, told you to call anytime you needed help. Is this friend worthy of your loyalty? If one day this person asked you for your support, wouldn’t you gladly give it, even if it involved some kind of sacrifice on your part? Most likely, you would do anything you could for this friend. Your loyalty would know no bounds.

If this is what you would do for a friend, how about your Self? What are you willing to do for it? Aren’t you deserving of your own loyalty? How much loyalty are you willing to show your Silent Master, the infinite part of you constantly standing ready, like a friend, to give you everything?

Your Silent Master knows Its worth and value, knows It deserves all your love, energy, support—and loyalty. It knows It is truth, purity, and love—your truth, purity, and love. Thus, loyalty to your Silent Master is putting your real self forward with confidence, conviction, determination, purpose, power, and love. Show your loyalty! And as you do, you move as One with your Silent Master.

Loyalty leads to Sacrifice."

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

"Loyalty

 Why does love lead to loyalty?

 Love is its own reward. The wonderful feeling of love generated from expressing your real self naturally leads you to value your real self even more. Then, the more you value your real self, the more you love. This momentum of love is the essence of loyalty, so loyalty is the result of perpetuating, reinforcing, and expressing your real self by loving it.

 And how do you love yourself? By being your real self. There is no greater way to love your real self than by being It. That is loyalty.

 Here’s an interesting thought you may not be aware of. The word “loyal” is derived from the Latin word legalis, which means “legal.” Thus, loyal includes the meaning of legal, which means “bound by law.” So, when you are loyal to your real self, when you are loyal to true and pure ideas about yourself, you invite the law of manifestation to operate and bring forth your real self. Loyalty is an act of acknowledging this law, an act of recognizing that whatever you are mentally loyal to is bound to take form.

 Loyalty, then, is a lot like gratitude because they are both acts of recognizing or acknowledging an idea. Whatever you’re loyal to, you recognize. Whatever you recognize, you think about. Whatever you think recognize, you think about. Whatever you think about, you manifest.

 If you act with your body and mind as one, if you know the truth about yourself, if you express purity and love, you have done much to achieve your goal. It is at this point you must exercise loyalty to your cause so you bring your vision to completion, so you do not give up, turn back, regress, or undermine yourself."

 Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

"Experiencing gratitude is a simple way to connect with the love imparted to you and every idea in the universe. The direct experience of the consciousness of love is gratitude. Gratitude is the process of recognizing what is true. Gratitude is an act of awareness. Without awareness, there is no recognition of anything and, therefore, no love of anything.

 I’ll give you a small example of what I mean. Once I was driving west along the highway into a magnificent sunset. The entire sky was seemingly on fire with flames amazingly bright, burning colors: purple, orange, red, yellow, blue, pink. I’d never seen so many colors in one place. Finding my vision restricted by the car windows, I pulled over and got out so I could have a full view of this incredible sunset. After a few moments I began to notice cars rushing by. Some were filled with people talking to each other, in another a man was using his car phone, in another someone was trying to read a paper while keeping one eye on the road. I was puzzled because not everyone was aware of the magnificent sight in front of them. Most people seemed distracted in one way or another.

 I was reminded of the power of gratitude. The feelings I experienced with the sunset—the great peace, joy, appreciation, and love that welled up—seemed to exist only for me at that moment. Of course, this sunset offered the opportunity for wonderful feelings to everyone else driving on this road as well, but only those who were willing to acknowledge the sunset, to make a conscious recognition of its presence, would feel the impact of its beauty. That is gratitude. Gratitude is the act of recognizing an idea or a quality; and when you do so, you identify with it."
