Our mind is a powerful thing. Often, I think it is impossible to understand how really powerful it is. If medical science cant get the full grasp of it, how in the world are we supposed to understand it ourselves? Yet, at the same time the trial and error of life gives us insights into different ways the mind operates and that allows us to make course corrections on our life path. The one thing that most people will agree on is that if you fill your mind with negative thoughts, the ability to change your life becomes not only difficult, it often makes it down right impossible.
We all encounter different types of people as we go through our life’s journey. Think about the individuals you have come across where everything in their life is negative. They hate their home life. Work does what ever it can to make their life difficult. Their personal lives are a mess. The one thing that all those things have in common are the individual themselves. They truly believe that the world’s sole purpose is to make them miserable and their buying into that not only exacerbates the situation, it keeps them from allowing any change in their life to take place.
Subtle changes can often have dramatic effects. Changing I can’t to I can or I won’t to I will begins to unlock the possibilities of change that elude us when we stay in those negative states that block any opportunity for alteration. Understanding that we are contributing to those walls, rather than believing that they are a result of everyone else’s action, allows us to start to make the course corrections that may eventually lead to the better life that we desire.
Throughout life I have met some of the most amazing people that have had the most horrible things happen to them. Yet they have found the inner strength to forgive and live a life filled with positive thoughts that keeps them on the path they desire. Alternatively, I have seen individuals that have never had bad things happen to them, yet they still see the world as their problem and choose to live a life mired in negativity. The former could have gone in the same direction, but they chose positivity over negativity and allowed their life to change for the better.
There is a difference between having a bad day, or even a bad week and allowing ourselves to be void of positive thoughts as a normal course of life. Change comes about because we are willing to let it happen and weed out that which is making us weaker. When we fill our life with positivity, it not only affects us, it affects everyone around us that have the ability to contribute to making our life that much better.
Have a great day and remember to be the reason someone smiles.
