Remember that your thoughts are an investment in your future, so use them wisely. Think if them as deposits into your universal bank account, and you want to keep your balance “positive.” Worry and doubt only serve to bring your bank balance down. And they sure won’t put a smile on your face.
What’s running through your head? What kind of thoughts?
Do you get up in the morning and say to yourself “Oh no…not ANOTHER day at this lousy job” or do you say “I am thankful that I have a job to go to today” Try saying both…now which one makes you feel better.
Okay, so maybe you don’t have your dream job but how many have no job at all? Being grateful and appreciative of things in your life will improve the quality of your life hands down.
Being pleasant and being concerned about others around you not only makes you shine but others will reflect that concern back to you.. so think well of others.
Let’s face it…the more you smile, the more grateful you are in every situation the better your life will be. A New Year is upon us, so what better time to keep those thoughts positive!
Watch your words. Watch what you say. Your words have the ability to encourage and soothe. They have the ability to bring a smile to someone’s face and to encourage them to take those first steps. They have the ability to send a heart soaring.
But they also have the ability to destroy hope. They have the ability to ruin a day. They have the ability to instill fear where there was none before.
Watch your words. Make them kind and uplifting. If you must criticize, then do it constructively. Don’t blindly shoot out cruel things. Once those words are out you can’t take them back. Words are powerful. Use them for good.
So will you ride it out…the “storm” that sometimes comes along when people don’t like your ideas? Will you step out to claim them or will you let criticism stop you; will you let it be drowned by “you can’t do that” or “it will never work”
I read somewhere that an idea goes through three phases:
You can’t do that- it’s impossible
Maybe it can work but on a very limited basis
I knew it was a great idea all along
Don’t wait for phase three- follow your heart now!
Don’t let it haunt you…your past. Don’t carry it around with you everywhere you go. Don’t let it take up all that room in your thoughts. It needs to be left behind.
We all make mistakes. We’ve all done things that we’ve been less than proud of. All of us. The point ere is- do we learn from these things and move on successfully- or do we just keep reliving them over and over and over again?
Your choice. Stay stuck with the “ghosts” of yesterday or move forward towards a brighter tomorrow.
Guide your thoughts carefully, because they determine your future. Keep them in the best possible light and directed to the goals you have set for yourself. Then they can begin to produce the future you want to see.
Try it and see the difference it can make in your life and you’ll feel great too.
You make the decision…about how you feel when things happen to you.
Do you see a “problem” as a chance to grow, as a chance to learn new things?Do you go into it with an open mind and work toward the best possible outcome?
Or do you allow problems to devastate you and leave you immobile? Do you see the as thick, concrete walls that are impossible to climb? Do you say to yourself that no matter what, this will NOT have a good outcome?
You have two ways to look at this- one way will help you- and one way will not.
