Evidence


“New evidence to the mind must be repeated several times. There must be a reason to create a new file to hold the information. In the mean time, it most likely will be rejected as some random less important piece of gibberish. Success is created by convincing our mind how great we are!”
-Kirk Duncan

Have you ever heard the definition of insanity? “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” — Albert Einstein. Frequently I hear people who say that they feel like they are going crazy, that they are stuck or going in circles. People often claim that they are trying something different, but not getting the results they want.

Why is that? Why is it that we can approach an issue in two different ways, avoiding “insanity”, but still not get the desired results? The reason why we don’t get the desired results is because we have the same evidence stored in our brain. We have changed the motions, the actions, but the thoughts and emotions are still very much the same. Remember: thoughts lead to emotions, emotions lead to actions, actions lead to results. If you are not getting the results you want, success, and you have tried changing the actions; focus on your emotions and your thoughts!

I would suggest using the following tools to help your brain accept new evidence about a goal you have set.
1) Grab a piece of paper or grab your laptop.
2) Write down the top 10 negative thoughts that you have about achieving/your ability to achieve the goal.
3) Next to each negative thought you will write the opposite, the positive thought, followed by another positive thought.
4) Read this every night before you go to bed for 7 days.
*Note* If one of your top 10 negative thoughts change, or that thought no longer comes to mind, replace it with another. You may also want to divide the negative and positive statements with a line down the middle of the page, dividing the page into two columns.

Example:
1) I am not capable of earning $5,000 in one day. — I am capable of earning $5,000 in one day and am deserving.
2) I don’t focus well enough to accomplish this task. — I have laser like focus and am determined.

When you do this, every night before going to bed, you are presenting new evidence to your brain to store while sleeping. This evidence, when presented frequently and consistently, will be accepted as verifiable truth and you will begin to feel it to be true. As you feel it to be true your actions will reflect that emotion and provide you with new, and desired, results.

About Jaxon

I am a spiritual being here to have mortal experiences. I believe in love. Not the love that can be fit in three words: I love you, but in the love that radiates from a couple who cherish one another more than life itself. I believe in love as it has been intended to be: eternal. I believe in progress. Learning from life, love, books, people and inspiration should be a daily experience. There is something incredible about a person who strives to be their best self. I believe in pursuing dreams. Mortality only happens once and is too short to simply sit back and allow it to pass you by. Goals, dreams and those who join in the pursuit of those dreams are what live worth while. I believe in being happy! True happiness is not found. It is a choice. The moment life is seen as being beautiful and is deeply appreciated, the easier it is to choose to be happy. I believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is my Savior, my King and my Friend. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and living His truth is key to my happiness and existence.

  1. That stamp did not make the red letters spelling ‘Evidence’. The evidence is clear if you look…

    And yes the power of positive (and clear and specific) thinking is very real. Also I would suggest avoiding mainstream media/ advertising as much as possible. It acts like the audio/visual equivalent of drinking a bottle of wine every day – IOW it makes your intent very fuzzy.

  2. Interesting theory, though I would leave out the negative statements and keep to the positive statements. Even reading the negative statements is going to have a negative impact. The brain has no idea of what reality is, only what is fed to it. You are what you think.

    • Like a jury in a court case, your brain is going to evaluate the evidence presented. Since it is providing evidence against the goal, the negative, the brain will need to see direct counter evidence as well as an additional positive statement to offset the negative statement; tip the scales.

      I suggest keeping the negative comments to show the brain that we are directly opposing the argument being presented. The direct opposition to the negative comment will show the brain that we do not agree, then we provide additional evidence to our case — the second positive statement.
