I heard this term awhile ago that has stuck with me,
“Where the mind goes, the energy follows.”
In other words, positive thoughts are precursors to a positive life. On the other hand, anxious thoughts and negative expectations set us up for miserable lives.
Many people think they cannot control their thoughts, but they can. Like anything else, it takes practice. What you think is up to you. You can choose your own thoughts and should do so carefully, since thoughts have a lot of creative power in your life. If you don’t reject bad thoughts (or learn how to acknowledge them to change them), you will ultimately turn those thoughts into bad words and actions.
When our lives don’t go well, we tend to blame our problems. But most of the time, it’s not the problems causing the trouble; it’s the way we think about the problems. One person, when faced with difficulty, might think,
This is terrible! I will never get through this! My life is ruined! Another person, faced with exactly the same problem, might choose to think, This is a challenge, it is here for a reason and the reason is for me to learn and grow from it. It will teach me how to be a better more equipped person for the future.
Which of the two people do you think would come through the difficulty in better shape?
Learning how to think correctly is mandatory for every aspect of health and wellness. I urge you to make a priority of learning to think upbeat, healthy thoughts that agree with your true goals and priorities. Don’t let negative thoughts lead you into an unhappy life; choose positive thoughts that will strengthen and encourage you, and lead to a life of joy, peace, and victory.
In what ways do you need to change your thoughts about yourself and your life?
