Our thoughts do in fact shape our whole life, and our daily happiness.
If you think it is going to be a good day, it will be a good day. If you
think it is going to be a bad day, you can be sure it is going to be that way!
We have all heard the saying, 'you are what you eat'.
Well, the same is true of your thoughts, 'you are what you think'. What
does it mean to change our thinking? Well, it all boils down to your
You Can Attitude
If you think "you can", then anything is possible.
But, if you think "you can't", then you are defeated before you even
Your mind is tremendously powerful.
Amazingly your mind is more powerful than any computer. And what is even
more amazing is you, and only you, control what you feed into it.
Your own thoughts determine your success. Once you start to think,
"I can't," your subconscious mind will work to turn this thought into a reality.
The famous saying of Henry Ford holds much truth, "Whether you think you can or think you can't - you are right."
Some people search their entire lifetime trying to find happiness and success.
They never discover that the secret is all in how they think and how they view life.
Have an "I Can" attitude towards life!
Look For The Good
Another way to change your thinking is to look for the good in every situation. We all
face challenges, difficulties and disappointments in life. But how we react to them
will determine our happiness and our success.
In her book, A Year of Positive Thinking, Cyndie Spiegel said, "By using repetitive mental activities like positive thinking, we can retrain our brains to become more inclined toward positive feelings."
No matter what the situation or what the mistake made is, you can find the good in it.
It may not be the outcome you wanted but you can learn from it. You can identify one thing, no
matter how small it is find the good and, more importantly, stay focused on that one thing. By
changing your focus you change your thinking.
To quote Charles R. Swindoll, " I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes."
Find the good because in the words of Buddha, "All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become."
