In Proverbs 23 it says, ” For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he”. Think of the heart – the emotions and the conviction that comes from the heart. The scripture seems to address what a man is. However, I believe that it also talks to what a man (any individual) can become. Is there something in your heart that you are passionate about? A cause? A quest? I hope you will listen to the positive whisperings of your heart – those whisperings that speak of doing wonderful and positive things! That is your divine guidance speaking to you! That is your spirit and your Creator attempting to communicate the amazing potential that you are meant to realize! Remember, if you can believe it, you can achieve it!
Our minds are a powerful tool! Give yourself one week. Pay attention to your thoughts. Are your thoughts really on track with what you want in your life? Take time to write down your thoughts! Then, if your thoughts need some redirection, start working at replacing those negative and destructive thoughts with positive and joyful thoughts! You will be amazed at the difference you will see!
Have you paid attention to your thoughts? Do you ever think about what you think about? Do you focus your attention on things that you have no control over? Do you talk trash to yourself? We all have unconscious thoughts that we need to be aware of. Those thoughts have a very powerful effect on our actions and our lives. We can steer our thoughts just like we can a car. First, however, we have to know what we are steering! God has given us the personal power to choose our thoughts and our actions. Although thoughts can be a little more tricky than choosing our actions – it is totally possible to get a handle on the process! Over the next week, pay attention to those quiet hidden thoughts that you have. I would encourage you to write them down. Beware that you might be surprised by some of those thoughts that are lurking in the background. Therefore, be sure that you don’t judge yourself based on those thoughts! Instead, be ready to identify those thoughts, get rid of the crummy ones, and replace them with positive self talk! Don’t expect to be a pro at redirecting your thoughts immediately! Keep practicing and paying attention and soon you will be great at keeping the kind of thoughts that will be positive and productive circulating in that amazing mind of yours!
Are you looking to change your life? To do so, you must change how you think! God has given you the ability to control your thoughts! It takes practice and intentional effort but you can do it! Just like a single footstep does not create a path in the sand, a single changed thought does not create a new way of thinking! You can identify thoughts that sabotage your life. Once you identify those thoughts or habitual ways of thinking, you can make a deliberate effort to replace them with thoughts that are positive and life-building! #Thoughts #Mental thoughts #Changeourlife #HenryDavidThoreau #Path #Change
