I was doing my daily reading of “Ask and It Is Given Learning to Manifest Your Desires” by Esther and Jerry Hicks and I came across this quote “you only hear what you are ready to hear.” It got me to thinking about this statement in depth. It reminds me that you might think you know what is best for someone. How many people in your life dish out advice to you? How much of that advice do you actually follow? The truth is that only if it relates to you.
We only hear what we want when we are ready for it. When you read a book in its entirety for the first time, you gain a certain perspective. The amazing thing is if you put that book down and read it again six months later. You will pickup different ideas and another perspective in the second reading. The book had the same amount of pages and the version was not revised. The book did not change, it was the reader of the book that changed. You are the one that changed.
We change with every “book” we read and everyone that we interact with. Books includes media, music we listen to, video that we watch or any interactive. When we take in these different forms of “books” into your psyche our personality is formed. The key is that your personality changes on a daily basis. You have no idea how a book will impact you at the time of reading a book.
You are not going accept or make changes in your life unless you are ready to do it. You might have good intention family members who always tell you how to live your life. These family members could talk until they are blue in the face. You would not make changes until you are ready. The pressure to make decision about your life might be strong and overbearing. We only hear what we what to hear when we want to hear it and accept it. Change is good when it is based on what is better for you.
P.S . When you decide to make the changes necessary to improve your life or business. The main thing is not to make big changes all at once. We charge you that one degree adjustment is what it takes to be successful in your life and business.
