Where did you get your life training?

Life Training…

This is probably a question you have never asked yourself. So just where did your life training come from? Did they teach you how to live in your school training? In your college training? I doubt it. Schools teach you a lot of stuff but not something as important as how do I live. Or how do I think? Or how should I think?  So your life training has come from your environment. And the most incredible part of this is it came to you mostly in your first 6-7 years of life. Namely from your parents or someone who raised you. So your life training you have adopted as yours but it in actuality was not even yours. So I have to ask is your life training serving you? Or is it limiting you?

Your life training is limiting you!

Unfortunately for most of us, our life training is limiting us. Being most of our parents, grandparents or great-grandparents grew up in and through the Great Depression when times were very hard and very different than they are today. And that life training has been passed from generation to generation. So I ask again, does your life training benefit you or limit you? It is most likely limiting you and your thinking.  Honestly, this comes down to your own power of choice. But if you are not even aware that you have a choice in this matter, life does not forgive you for your ignorance. You will always suffer the consequences of your choosing or lack of choice, which I say is still choosing.

Here is some good life training.

Just how do you think? Or better yet, how should you think to benefit from your thinking? Here are some great tips.

Philippians 4:8 New International Version (NIV)

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

You may say, no one ever taught me how to think. I just think. If that is you, then your life training is most definitely limiting you. Because life has a way of teaching you to judge your life by your five senses. This is not the way to live. There is a more excellent way. That way is disciplining your thinking to think only about what you want or desire and not thinking of the opposite. Thinking how you can and not thinking about how you can’t.

How do I change my life training?

The way to change your current limiting life training is first recognizing that you can change. And through consistent day to day repetition, thinking in a new way. A way that judges not according to your five senses, but a truly righteous judgment, one based on faith and what you desire and believe. Because this is exactly how your life happens to you.

Matthew 9:29 New International Version (NIV)

29 Then he touched their eyes and said, According to your faith let it be done to you”;

So know that as you believe, it happens to you that way.

Here is the process.

Your constant and habitual thoughts create your beliefs. Your beliefs create how you feel. How you feel, creates what you do. What you do, creates your results in life. So you need to ask yourself is my life training benefiting me or limiting me? And then make the change. You can do this. It just takes practice.
