Changing Your Mindset
Do you believe that you will never get to take the vacation of your dreams – or that you will never find real friends or romance – or that you will probably never feel any better – or that the chance you have of having the life you want is slim to none?
What things do you tell yourself on a regular basis that may or may not be true? I heard a motivational speaker talk on this subject just the other night. She asked you to list all the negative things you tell yourself, and then underneath, list all the things that are really true. For example, one thing you might be telling yourself is that you will never get a better job. The truth is the future is unlimited potential. You don’t know what kind of job you could attract if you got a little more training, or read a few books, or just practiced changing your mindset. After all, the law of attraction is working here.
You could be invited somewhere amazing – you could meet someone special later today – you could read about a new herbal remedy this evening that is just what you need – the phone could ring at any moment and a new opportunity present itself.
We tell ourselves limiting things everyday, as though they are the truth of our being. They are not. They are only potentials that exist in our mind. Thinking about them energizes them and keeps them attached to us. Once we start telling ourselves new truths, we have the potential of attracting those new things to us.
You, and only you, are responsible for the thoughts you think. What do you keep telling yourself on a daily basis? That you can? Or that you can’t? That it will work out, or that it won’t?
I hope you will consider giving some serious thought to changing your mindset about anything that is limiting you or causing you unhappiness. Nobody can do this for you – but then again, nobody can ever stop you. It’s your mind. I hope today you will give yourself permission to at least think about changing it.
