My mother always took her pillow when we went on vacation. I, without much conscious thought, picked up the same habit and believed that I wouldn’t be able to sleep well without my own pillow. The times that I would forget to pack it, meant restless nights trying to adjust, punch down, fluff or flatten the foreign pillow. Several years ago, I decided to change this. I literally said to myself, “I can sleep well with any pillow and I no longer need to bring mine along on trips.” And this has become my experience.
It continues to amaze me how much power we have to change, even our perception of physical comfort, by consciously choosing to think a different thought.
Your present negative beliefs were formed by thought plus feelings. Generate enough emotion, or deep feeling, and your new thoughts and ideas will cancel them (the old negative beliefs) out. – Maxwell Maltz
