Your thoughts are powerful. They serve to drive your actions in life and equate to how you live your life. It makes sense to have positive thoughts primarily. You may not realize it but you have many thoughts a day, thousands in fact and most, do not occur on a conscious level. It’s hard to still your mind and put a stop to the endless stream of chatter and to think purely in a positive way but there is a lot that can be done to control them in time. Utilizing a positive thinking meditation or making use of positive affirmations can help you to re-gain control.
Your thoughts are not new; many are repeated over and over again. Thoughts are related directly to your former experiences, all the way back to your childhood. These are not always beneficial. Negative thoughts can also hold you back in life. They become part of a series of self-limitations that make you falter through life and unless you can learn to master them, you will always be at their mercy.
Not convinced that you have negative thoughts? It’s a human condition after all. For most people they form a large part of their daily thought pattern, they can muddle the way forward, make you feel less than adequate, they can detract from your personal and professional careers and even restrict your ability to communicate well. Your thoughts are so powerful that they can make you feel ill and taint your perception in life.
If you can start to realize the type of thoughts that you are having, you will see that they are peppered with negativity and often without your even realizing. Thoughts are powerful and can be harmful and malicious at times, unless you can learn to think positive and banish negative thoughts you will always be held back.
Professional life coach Evelyn Olivares states that ‘if you can harness the power of your mind, you can attain levels of success that you did not know were possible.’ She’s right. This is a subject that has been researched numerous times, positivity helps you to strive forward, it helps people to overcome obstacles more readily, and it enables you to have greater self-confidence and conviction. If you can leave this habitual stream of negativity behind you, you can escape from anxieties, insecurities and instead, live a life filled with positive experiences.
Your emotional state will be affected in a positive or negative way. So the choice is yours whether you learn to harness those negative thoughts and self-correct and learn to adopt a more positive way of thinking. The old adage, ‘mind over matter,’ is true. Take charge of your thoughts and see and feel the difference in a matter of only a few days.
The secret is to become aware of them, that’s your first step towards changing your life. Set the building blocks in place for change, by becoming aware of how you think and react and you may see a substantial difference. You are your thoughts, so let them be powerfully positive ones.
