    Just Being Yourself

    Let’s begin to look at some of the core components to creating the life you want on every level. Have you ever heard a friend describe another person that you both knew by saying something like, “That’s just like John, he’s always __________,”. Whatever it is (fill in the blank) he’s late, he’s enthusiastic, he’s a great host, he’s considerate, he’s sarcastic, he’s athletic, he’s understanding, he’s fun to do things with. Whatever it happens to be, but that’s just like John, he’s always whatever.

    Isn’t it interesting that John tends to be just like himself over and over and over? This is no accident. John’s internal programming triggers actions and attitudes so he tends to repeat the same behaviors.

    We all do this. In many cases, it’s almost as if he is compelled to act that way. He couldn’t break out of that way of being without serious thought about it and it may cause him a lot of stress and tension to do things differently.

    And so it is with each of us. You behave the way you behave because of your internal programming and the attitudes that work in conjunction with that learned pattern. These patterns make up your Self, that is your Self with a capital ‘S’. It’s the deep you. The part of you that has been preprogrammed and runs on autopilot in the majority of situations.

    Your Self Talk

    Of these thousands of attitude patterns that make up your “Self” what kind of person did they make you? What abilities do you have? What do you most like to do? What things offend you? What do you believe are general truths about other people? In your life you have developed what you consider to be truths about yourself and others.

    Your capabilities, your weaknesses and strengths, your general health, your relationship with money and how much you should have, your spiritual beliefs and so on. These truths are a blend of thoughts and information and the feelings and attitudes about X, Y and Z.

    Truly, these are actions and attitudes about everything you see, hear, feel, touch, taste, smell and experience in your world. This is your reality structure. And central to your reality structure is your self-image and what you believe yourself capable of accomplishing. The kicker here is that your internal reality is often incompatible, incomplete and inaccurate, with who you could be.

    You do not know all there is to know about yourself and you never will. No matter how much time and energy you dedicate to learning about your mental and physical systems there’s always more to learn. And in many cases, some of the assumptions that you have made about yourself are distorted and are inaccurate.

    Your Programming Over The Years

    Quite often the patterns you’ve engrained and strengthened which have adjusted your self-image, have not recorded a fully accurate pattern of the real you and all that you are or are capable of being. You’ve programmed your mind over many years through actions and attitudes, and this has directly affected you. A major part of you that has does this programming, is your self-talk and the mental images in your mind.
