Your Mind Creates This World

It is your mind that creates this world. Dalai Lama

Isn’t it amazing that our mind is pretty much the basis for our life and yet most of us have no clue as to how this powerful apparatus functions?

T. Harv Eker

What Is Thought?

While the true nature of thought is unknown to us, we are all familiar with this powerful force in the mind. Where thoughts come from and why we have them is something yet to be explained by science. We do know that thoughts affect the chemicals in our brains, our emotions, and our actions. Seek mastery of your thoughts in order to take possession of a powerful key to creating your ultimate success.

What’s So Bad About Negativity?

All success in life, whether material or spiritual, starts with the thoughts that you put into your mind every second of every minute of every day. Your outer world reflects the state of your inner world. By controlling the thoughts that you think and the way you respond to the events of your life, you begin to control your destiny.

Robin Sharma

Mastery of your thoughts is not forcing a thought out of your head, or pushing it back down. It is not having only positive thoughts. You see, negative thoughts are not bad, they are simply coming from a part of your mind that has learned that this is a language you will listen to. Teach yourself to pay more attention to the positive thoughts and more of them will come.

Write down 6 to 10 positive thoughts that create warm or happy feelings for you, include images if possible, and carry this list with you. Each time you notice a negative thought, read at least 3 of these, out loud if possible. Use your phone’s voice recorder to store them so you can listen during those times when you can’t read.

This will be most effective if you can set aside any judgements you have about your negative thoughts and trust the process. It isn’t necessary to disprove the negatives or to prove the positives.

Every Drop Counts

The more conscious a person is, the closer to their potential that person lives, and the more positive energy he or she has available to use.

Bruce D. Schneider

As you notice your thought patterns more and more, you will become conscious of the effect they have on your day, and your life. Each time you choose to replace a negative thought with 3 positive ones, you affirm to yourself that you are capable and worthy. This strengthens your confidence and commitment to create the life you wish to live.

Make a plan to practice this skill for 30 days. Set aside time each week to review and refresh your list of positive thoughts. Set up a reminder in your daily calendar to prompt yourself to actively engage with your thinking throughout the day. After a month of this, it will become second nature.

If you find yourself forgetting, take that opportunity to begin again with fresh enthusiasm, knowing that every small bit of growth brings you closer to your goal.
