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.
