Surely we’ve all encountered a “negative Ned” or a “negative Nelly” at some point. These are the folks who always see the glass as half empty…the eternal pessimists who identify with others through their own unconscious motto: “misery loves company”.
We all have bad days, but I’d like to invite you all to stop and consider the messages that you repeat to yourselves each day. You may find that you are sabotaging yourself with your own thoughts! Because thoughts are energy, there is great power behind them. The images that we paint are the ones that we become; this is the Law of Attraction in action. Our thoughts draw energy our way; therefore if we think positive thoughts, we attract positive energy into our lives. Unfortunately the same holds true for negative thoughts, and the surest way to get exactly what you don’t want is to put a lot of conscious thought toward it. Acknowledge your fears, but don’t allow them to dominate your thoughts.
Consider where you hope to be in life, 5 or 10 years from now. Visualize what you will look like, how you will dress, what you’ll feel like, what work you’ll be doing, where you will live, what kind of car you’ll drive, what types of friends you’ll have and people you’ll associate with. Do this often and in great detail…you will be painting an image for yourself to become, and actively creating your own reality!
“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.”
~Henry David Thoreau
