The Seven day MENTAL “DIET”?
It takes COURAGE .
Courage to change a simple thought process . So many members have reported remarkable results .
So what is it. What’s going on?
The goal is to string together 7 consecutive days without a negative thought lasting more than 7 seconds.
How can this be done?
Obey the law.
The LAW OF SUBSTITUTION .
One of the 7 laws of the mind, which in this particular case, states that the mind cannot hold more than ONE thought at any particular moment.
Of course many will claim that they have MANY thoughts circulating around at any given time, but “circulating” is quite different than “landing” , or “focusing “.
We can only “focus” on ONE thought at any given moment.
Its a fact, proven scientifically , and not open to debate.
The beautiful thing is, we have the unique ability, ( using the law of SUBSTITUTION) , to “exchange ” ANY thought for a DIFFERENT ONE.
We can “substitute ” , for example , a thought of wanting to chase someone down who cut us off on the highway , or wanting to strangle someone for saying something degrading to us, for a thought of a pleasant place we found peace at, or a dream we are working towards in the future .
The more we use this Law of Substitution, the quicker we are able to “switch” out our negative thoughts for the more pleasant ones.
We are creating “new ” neural connections , that will replace the “old”.
Just like Og Mandino writes in Scroll I , of “The Greatest Salesman in the world “,
“only a habit can replace another habit”
The habit of “switching ” our thoughts with a pleasant place , time , or future achievement , to replace a negative thought , is using the Law of Substitution to our greatest advantage .
It becomes as second nature as turning our head when we hear our name being called or spoken .
To get through the 7 day mental diet, and reap all the rewards that naturally will follow, we must always be utilizing the law of substitution , so it becomes second nature .
The law is indisputable , and non discriminate .
It is our Unique Advantage .
