Watch Your Thoughts

April 16, 2011

By now, most of us understand that our thoughts create our reality and are working on being mindful of what thoughts we are consistently having and trying to change them into something positive.

Gratitude is a great way to keep our thoughts flowing positively and to bring in more good things because you can’t be given more if you don’t appreciate what you already have.

So, think about some of the negative thoughts that come up, like, “I’m not good enough”, “I’m so broke”, “I can never get a man”, etc, etc

Is this what you want to be thinking about everyday?

Now think about how your thoughts would sound if your life was everything you wanted, they might sound like, “I can pay for that course because I have enough money”, “I can visit that country because I can afford it”, “My partner is so loving and supportive, I am so blessed”, “I feel so good today because I’ve been taking care of my health and exercising in a way that I really enjoy”.

Do you see where I’m going here?  If your life WERE everything you wanted it to be, its safe to say your thoughts would be much more positive.

So, if your thoughts create your reality, doesn’t it make sense to change your thoughts to those you would have if your life was everything you wanted?  Thereby in fact creating your life in your mind so it can become reality for you.

Your task this week

  1. Keep a gratitude journal every day this week, write it before you go to bed and find things to add to it throughout the day.
  2. Every time you have an automatic negative thought, replace it with what you would rather like to think, repeat it until you feel good.
  3. Let us know in the comments how your week turned out, notice any positive changes in your life as a result?  What did you learn?
