I am sure you’ve heard many times that your thoughts have indeed the power to change your experiences.
Your day to day reality is determined by your day to day thoughts.
You might believe this or not, but here’s the thing: if you take an area of your life, say career, is it what you really want? If it is, examine what your thoughts are with respect to your career. You will find that they are uplifting, positive and self affirming thoughts: you love what you do, you are proud of your accomplishments, you are looking forward to new things and welcome every challenge with a light heart and trust that you will find the answer. Or something like that.
Now, let’s say that your relationships area is lacking or giving you trouble; one or more or more of your relationships are not what you want. Examine your thoughts with respect to these relationships and you will find them to be negative, diminishing and low energy: you are frustrated, you judge the other person, you want them to change, to do things differently, you resent certain behaviors they have, you lack patience, losing faith, etc.
Your thought are different with respect to the two area of your life, aren’t they?
You might now say that they are different because the situations are different.
I will disagree and say it the other way around: the situations are different – one that you like and one that you do not – BECAUSE your thoughts are different.
Ponder on this for today.
Tomorrow I will tell you how to find the proof you need in order to change your mind and start thinking your way to what you want.
