You know your thoughts have power.
Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.
You know that different things affect how you think and feel.
You have also had great days where you have seen the benefits of being aware of your thoughts and molding them into the positive faith filled thoughts you know you need.
When your thoughts move you toward your goals, then they are giving you the energy you need to succeed.
Our attitude is so powerful, yet at times we don’t take the time to work toward changing how we think and why we think the way we do.
At times I honestly feel as though we are scared to confront our negative thoughts. I feel that this is because when we do so we acknowledge our personal, very real weaknesses. No one likes face the reality of our faults, no matter how undeniable. The fact of the matter is that in order to improve we most first accept where and who we are, before we can become better, and stretch toward our potential. Everyone has negative thoughts, but not everyone is willing to face them. The confrontation of negative energy can seem scary. I have come to see however, that the more we work at it the better we get at it, and the better we will feel.
Optimistic thinking does not deny the existence of negative thought, rather the healthy and honest confrontation of negative thought.
We will always feel bad unless we are willing to be introspective, self-aware, and alter our thoughts. We have to chose to be personally responsible for how we feel and think before we can alter how we think of feel.
The power that is attitude is a power that is most often overlooked by the casual pursuer of success.
When we go from casual to committed then we will find within us the capacity and determination we need to push ourselves to face ourselves.
As we face ourselves we change our thoughts, and place ourselves on the path to achievement.
To do what we have not done before, will always present a challenge. It is the challenge of facing ourselves that when accepted and faced that will yield the greatest results.
It is the very essence of self mastery.
You and I all know that there is a lot that goes into shaping and molding our thoughts. I have found that eating certain foods, and listening to certain music, and how I dress affects me and my thoughts differently, another factor that I have come to realize affects me is movement. In fact exercise is know as a natural remedy for depression. Even our posture has the ability to change and transform the way we think. The more we educate ourselves and look for solutions the more we will learn, and we will develop a stronger self-awareness.
I enjoyed Amy Cuddy’s ted talk on body language and its ability to shape how we feel and think.
In fact after watching it. I watched it again, then I looked up some more videos promoting Amy Cuddy and her work. I invite you to do the same when you have a minute.
