Did you know that you can be your worst enemy? Your thoughts, words, attitude, and actions all have the power to block your blessings. Negative thoughts can become negative words, and we all know words have power, Negative thinking can keep us captive.
Watch your thoughts for they become words. Watch your words for they become actions. Watch your actions for they become habits. Watch your habits for they become characters. Watch your character for it becomes your destiny.
It all starts with how we "think". To begin to live the life we've always dreamed of, we must first change our thinking. If there's anything about your life that you're not happy with, good news it can be changed! All it takes is a shift in your thoughts to begin to change it. Our thinking keeps us from good things in life. Negative thinking also causes sickness in the body.
Think how often children are disciplined with negatives. Don't fall. Don't touch that. Don't ...Don't...Don't. Sometimes what may seem like disobeying could just be their Unconscious processing the experience of falling or touching. Have you ever thought, "I don't want to fail," "I don't want to be in this job all my life," "I must not miss this sale"? Think about it...by the time your brain has got to the "don't" or "must not," your whole body has already received the message: fail, stay in the job, miss the sale.
So if you want to think positively, the key question to ask yourself is: "If I don't want "X", what do I want in its place?"
Answering this question precisely gives your brain something to work toward. The more you can specify what you will see, hear and feel the more the brain is given a map to create new solutions and guide it to its outcome.
So, if you find yourself thinking something like, "I don't want to be nervous in front of a group," ask yourself, "what would I be doing instead?" You might answer "I will have steady hands, breathe easily, feel relaxed in my stomach, make eye contact, have a clear voice, be humorous, etc. etc." The more detail, and the more specific you are, the better.
Change your thinking and you will see more and more blessings in your life.
"Be Ye transformed by the renewing of your mind."
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
King James Version (KJV)
