This is life-changing for the smart few – “Did you enjoy yourself?” A simple sentence we have all heard 1000s of times that could hold the key to the success or failure of each of our lives.
When you really look at this sentence “…did you enjoy yourself?”
The question is really about what you are doing to YOU in the context of a situation.
Did you enjoy YOU when you went to the concert?
Or more accurately…
Did YOU enjoy what you did to yourself when you went to the concert?
What we were never taught growing up is we do our emotions to ourselves.
Many of us grow up never considering how our emotions happen.
We simply have them except them and then we blindly buy them as a truth.
How would our lives be different if we had the power to choose how we feel rather than be at the whim of what our patterned brain throws up?
If our lives are all about how we feel, in other words, our emotions then what is creating all these feelings that have led us to where we are today?
Then consider this if 95% of our emotional patterns that create our feelings are created between the ages of 0-7 based on what life has presented to us.
Now, what meaning do we attach to our automatic feelings now?
Should we trust our automatic or patterned feelings or are they distortions handed to us by people who were equally lost?
This is far too deep for many and I understand this.
Personally, I’d rather understand and take back control, what about you?
