I know that this title sounds harsh. The topic of this blog is extremely important in order to purposefully move your life in the direction of improving yourself.
Contradiction: In traditional logic, a contradiction consists of a logical incompatibility or incongruity between two or more propositions. It occurs when the propositions, taken together, yield two conclusions which form the logical, usually opposite inversions of each other.
This is a fascinating definition. Contradiction is an often-overlooked phenomenon that is a part of every person’s life. The very definition of Contradiction means that two truths in our life are moving in opposite directions. If one of our life objectives is to move forward and become a better version of our self, then contradictions are interfering with that objective. As a Health Mastery Chiropractor and a Life Mastery Mentor, my number one priority is to assist people in removing that which is interfering with their forward momentum. In order to have an ever-increasing Quality of Life we must do two things;
- Find out what is holding us back and do less of it and
- Find out what is working well and do more of it.
Contradictions are under the category of those things that hold us back, distract us, and decrease our positive impact as well as our Quality of Life.
In order to assess how we are doing with Contradictions, we must be very honest with our self. We must look at each of the main categories of our life and really look deep. There are six main Categories of Life:
- Physical Health & Wellness
- Emotional Development
- Intellectual Development
- Financial Health
When I look deep into each Category I get excited about finding Contradictions. My excitement exists because I know that my life will improve when I discover and eliminate Contradictions from my life. This process is not about perfection. Perfection is practically impossible. I like to have people focus more on Excellence.
Here is the process. With each Category ask yourself:
- Vision: “How do I want this Category of my life to look?”
- Purpose: “Why do I want it to look this way?
- Momentum: “Am I moving closer or further from my Vision?”
- Strategy: “What will I stop doing that is slowing me down?” and “What will I start doing in order to speed up toward living my Vision?”
These four steps are very simple; however, they are not easy.
It takes dedication to change your life. Are you willing to love yourself enough to take the steps necessary to improve your life?
When you live with obvious contradiction the answer to the previous question is “No, I do not love myself enough!”
