Power Of Suggestion Call 877-CASH-NOW

Updated: Jul 6, 2022


So often we hear how much input matters. The things that we hear not necessarily listen to. The things that we see. A popular lyric to a song actually addresses this "O be careful little eyes what you see." I would venture to say that this applies to all of us not just the little ones.


It seems simple enough. It is something that perhaps we all know but take for granted. The truth is what goes into us programs us and comes back out of us. Never has this been more evident than the other day while I was in the shower. I was washing my hair and suddenly started singing - Call 877-CASH-NOW. What the heck? What am I singing and why can't I get this jingle out of my head? I had turned my television on for a brief moment before and the JG Wentworth commercial was playing. I thought to myself why had I even turned this on and immediately turned the television back off. It was quite literally less than a one-minute input that had me singing about getting cash now all day long.


This got me to thinking about how very important it is to guard our minds. I started evaluating what I hear and see. If you listen to country radio for any length of time, you are no doubt going to think about having a drink or Eric Church busting down your door to make love to you like a wrecking ball. Did I say Eric Church? I meant my husband. If you watch television, you are going to want to eat something even when you are not hungry. Being a consumer of social media, you are more than likely going to feel inadequate or stressed unless you filter your friends and your feed.


Oh, the power of what goes into us! In my case, I realized I have enough thoughts of my own to work through each day. I have 50+ years of body dysmorphia to work through. I definitely don't need anyone else reinforcing my negative thoughts! I certainly don't need anyone telling me what I need to buy or that I need cash now.


I have started unsubscribing to junk emails that are merely seeds being planted into my subconscious that I need to consume rather than create.


No wonder so many of us suffer from feeling like we aren't enough or that we need the next best thing.


What if we truly guarded our minds and only allowed the good stuff in? I am guessing that a lot more good stuff would come out of us. The world needs that now more than ever.


It has only been a few days of me being intentional about what I allow in and already I am feeling lighter, happier, more positive, more in control. Yes, more in control of my own thoughts! I think what I think and not what someone else wants me to think. I don't want to call 877-CASH-NOW! I certainly don't want to be singing about it in the shower!


I think we all should reflect on why we think what we think. Are they our own thoughts or were they somehow programmed into us? It could be something simple a parent, friend, or colleague said. I used to have a co-worker that always said, "Why do today what you can do tomorrow?" She was well meaning and meant it in a light-hearted way. Yet here I am some ten years later still thinking about it. Hopefully, this will give you something to think about!


Until Next Time,

C
