If I had to choose one single lesson to convey from my Transformational Life Coaching practice, it would be in response to the question “Do Thoughts Create Reality?”
My one simple answer is an unequivocal Yes. Your thoughts really do create your reality!
Here is a recent story in my own personal life that illustrates this case in point.
Proving Myself Right
The other day I was packing up the car for a road trip. It was going to be at least a five hour drive and we had to travel at night.
“Ugh, this is going to be the worst,” I muttered to myself while throwing a duffel bag into the back. I’d been dreading the drive for days.
But as I closed the hatch and stepped away from the car, I caught myself. This was an old pattern that I’d been trying to change creeping back in.
What I realized in that moment was that I was already creating “my truth” before the road trip had even begun. And once my reality had become my truth, I was sure as heck going to prove myself right.
I think most of us do this same type of thing quite a bit.
“Ugh, (fill in the blank) is going to be horrible/hard/long/scary/boring…
and once we’ve predetermined how an experience is going to be, we unconsciously set up the world around us to prove ourselves right.
Your Thoughts Do Create Your Reality
So here’s my invitation to you…
Pay attention. Notice when and where you have thoughts that may be creating a reality that you DO NOT wish to see.
And the next time you hear yourself creating that future truth, allow yourself to stay open to the possibility that with this new awareness and letting go of the need to prove yourself right, you may just end up being proven pleasantly wrong.
Our road trip turned out exactly that way!
Our son, Tucker called an hour into the trip and reported how the first couple innings of the Red Sox game had gone.
And for the next seven innings, he stayed on the phone and commentated the entire game for us, play by play!
That car drive flew by and the trip I’d been dreading is now a wonderful memory.
Think thoughts that create the reality use wish to see!
