Advice for young selves

This article relates to how people thought they might progress through life and all it does is states what is. It was researched by Karen Collier of Melbourne’s Herald Sun and was published on Friday Dec 14th 2018 and appeared on pg. 32.

WOMEN are more optimistic about being able to change their life for the better, according to a well being study. The research found few Australians were living lives that exceeded the expectations of their youth.

  • If we could go back in time, one in four people said they’d save more, take better care of their health, and worry less about what others thought of them.
  • One in five said they’d travel more or find a career they were passionate about.

“Although many Australians are living a different life today than what they imagined … they are relatively optimistic they can still make changes to make their life more like the one they wanted,” the National Australia Bank Well being Insight Report said.

Not having enough money was the biggest barrier for change.

The research asked adults to rate their lives now compared with what they’d imagined for themselves, and to consider how they would have done things differently.

  • Over-50 women were far more likely than men of that age group to say they would have worried less about others’ opinions of them and made more time for themselves.
  • Men were more likely to tell their younger selves to take better care of relationships, and spend more time with their children and family.

I notice the article uses the word “imagination” which is one of our mental faculties that is generally encouraged as a child and put to sleep as an adult.

First off, all of our results are a:

  • direct reflection of what’s going on inside of us
  • until we change the inside the outside doesn’t change
  • 96 to 98 percent of all of our results perceptions and behaviors are subconscious
  • 2 to 4 percent are conscious

Most people live from the outside in, to solve any human problem resides in the subconscious mind with what we call a paradigm.
