When you have asked this question of yourself in the past did you really sit down and take the time to answer it?
We live from such a fast-paced, surface only, get it done perspective. Unfortunately, we tend to face every area of our life like that as well.
If you were to build a home would you want your builder to hurry up and get the foundation done without all the research, knowledge, specifications, and codes so it could just be done?
NO!! You would want them to take their time, know everything they need to know, gather all the wisdom and expertise that can to make sure your foundation is solid.
Why are you not treating yourself the same way?
I’m sure you’re thinking this is crazy but just see where I’m going with this.
Your subconscious controls your immediate responses, immediate reactions, immediate feelings on all areas of life. The subconscious lives in the past. It has been conditioned in certain behaviors and belief’s based on what has or has not happened to you in your life.

Technically your future is being controlled by your past.
Do you ever hear yourself saying any of these in your business or personal lives?
“I wish this would stop happening”
“I can’t believe we keep having to go through this”
“I know this is where God wants me but I feel lost”
We all have these moments from time to time but sometimes it just seems excessive.
These moments typically happen because our habits from our past, our learned behaviors from our past are dictating our choices in the present with impact the future outcome.
What needs to happen in order to conquer these old habits?
You have to be willing to put in the time and effort it will take to restructure your subconscious.
This is not based on psychological studies. This is based on experience.
There is a saying in the Bible “Take your thoughts captive”
“Casting down the imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ,” 2 Corinthians 10:5 (GNV)
God tells us to take our thoughts captive. We need to take the time to examine our thoughts and decipher, if they are in fact, falling in line with our faith.
Just because we believe something that is how a habit because, “you were raised that way”, “you’ve always been this way”, “it’s out of protection for yourself from your past”, doesn’t mean that living that way is serving you and the season you are in.
It is important to re-evaluate where you are and what beliefs you are living from, are they serving you where you are and where you’re going, and if not how do you change it.
Build a solid foundation in your faith, your values, and your beliefs and the rest will come much more fluidly in your business and personal life.
