“We do not think ourselves into new ways of living, we live ourselves into new ways of thinking.”
― Richard Rohr
Richard Rohr continues to upend my long-held beliefs, and this certainly happened when I read this statement. And it’s true. Sometimes you just start doing things differently, and your thinking will shift accordingly.
Think about your routine behaviors, like how you interact at meetings, begin your day, or transition from work to home. What would happen to your thoughts (and feelings) if you radically changed those behaviors? What if you were quiet, where you usually monopolized conversation? What if you talked openly with people you never spoke to before? What if you took five minutes to meditate before engaging with your testy neighbor?
How would your thinking and feeling evolve? What concrete step can you take to change your behavior, and thus your thinking? Comment below or message us anytime.
