lead with your actions
let them spark revelations
that change your thinking
Perhaps you’ve heard that famous quote about how your thoughts become your words and your words become your actions. There’s some truth to this.
But often changing your thinking isn’t enough.
If you feel stuck in a rut, sitting around and thinking it is unlikely to change anything.
Marsha Linehan, the creator of Dialectical Behavior Therapy says:
You can’t think yourself into new ways of acting; you can only act yourself into new ways of thinking. — Marsha Linehan, creator of DBT
Nevine Michaan, founder of Katonah Yoga, teaches that the repetition of daily practice leads to revelations.
A new perspective on your situation can offer a refreshing reprieve.
The best way to change your perspective is to look at your situation from a new angle. This isn’t just theoretical. When you get up and move around you literally see things from new angles. You gain new perspective.
Taking action will give you a new experience. A new experience will create new beliefs, which will lead to more new actions.
