“The reflection of the current social paradigm tells us we are largely determined by conditioning and conditions.”
― Stephen R. Covey
Our homes have a job to do. We have a choice on how we want to condition the mind of our kids. For one, don’t let them lose their inner child by conditioning them wrongfully. We must let the way we verbally condition our kids be uplifting, empowering, encouraging, as we must remind them daily of their abilities and not what they cannot do. Don’t assume that a child can’t, because children tend to believe what they are told repeatedly.
We are all exposed to verbal conditioning. Now, let’s break the question down in small pieces, by defining the main words. Let’s start with override, which is to put something else in place for what you want to change. Destructive is that which does not serve you in a positive way. Verbal is the expression through words. Conditioning can either be rewarding or harmful but it’s an act that is performed over a period of time which they become a natural part of your physic.
If home is the beginning of the conditioning process, we can then instill greatness in our kids early on in life. What do you think?
Ingrained behaviors/habits become a part of us through conditioning and to break the destructive ones it will take some time. On that note, you MUST be willing to do what it will take to override the destructive verbal conditioning and that can be done by using constructive self-suggestion. You will have to change what you are saying to yourself, but you will have to be fully conscious of what you want to change. With that being said, to override the destructive verbal conditioning you will have to:
- Change the negative self-talks to positive self-talk. I can instead of I can’t.
- Observe your own behavior; replace what you would want to stop doing with what you would want to start doing.
- Nurture the already good habits. What you spend time on will develop and eventually get stronger.
- Decide that the limiting belief you currently hold of yourself is not true.
Some habits of ineffectiveness are rooted in our social conditioning toward quick-fix, short-term thinking. -Stephen R. Covey
- Initiate the first move towards personal development. It may take some time but you are on your way once you gain the courage to start and that’s what is important.
- Train your thought process to think differently. As Albert Einstein said that no problem can be solved with the same level of thinking that created them.
- Insist on practicing your new way of thinking every day until it becomes a part of your psychic. Read good books and listen to audios.
- Own up to what you want to change. You will not change a habit that you are afraid to confront.
- Note your progress. It’s good to know that you are improving and in the progress in builds your confidence.
Once we know that limiting beliefs are part of the conditioning that we all were exposed to, we’ll start the process of reversing that belief by being constructive in our thinking.
