Our thoughts are creative, what we think becomes.
Only when we change our thoughts about a situation will our behavior and results change.
The thoughts we think determine the direction of our life. May I encourage you today to begin thinking in a more uplifting, encouraging, optimistic and successful way that is in line with what you want to accomplish.
Carefully guard what you allow your mind to take in: A large part of our society focuses on the negative. The news is full of gloom and doom. Some entertainment from movies to music is based on drama and violence.
If you allow yourself to spend a lot of your time with this negativity it will affect you negatively, leaving you sad, worried, defeated, unhappy and unhealthy. Choose to stand guard.
Purposely allow yourself 10 minutes a day, especially in the morning, contemplating and meditating on thoughts that will add power and strength to your life. We are contemplating something any way, all day every day, why not allow your thoughts to bless and strengthen you instead of weaken and hurt you?
Carefully guard who you spend your time with, and who you are listening to. Make a conscious effort to be around people who are optimistic, who uplift and encourage you, and make you laugh. I know sometimes we can’t help being around negativity but you don’t have to allow it to affect you and take your peace.
Read one good inspiring, spiritual book per month. Books change our life and we need a nourishing mental diet. It has been said, “Tell me what you are reading and who you are listening too, and I will tell you what your life will be like in a year or two.”
Be excited about your life – Be Optimistic! If you have breath in you, you are needed on this earth so choose to enjoy each day, and bring joy to your day. Even in the ordinary things you need to do. This is your life. Be filled with hope and belief for good things happening today. When you are excited, happy and healthy, you will radiate that energy out into your world and everyone around you benefits. Enjoy your goodness.
Remember, we have only one day at a time to live, so live it today consciously and deliberately and choose well!
