You know how they pull you down. You know the drill. That negative mindset they all try to sell you. Yes, the physical world is a world of impermanence. All things physical changes form through time. Living beings are born, grow, thrive, and then decay sets in and eventually the form must change. But if you live your life lamenting you that everyone must die someday, you won’t get anything out of life. We all must control our mindsets in order to shape our lives.
Consider the power of gravity over everything physical on earth. Without your life force and the decision to lift yourself up, to stand, to move- you cannot move! All things remain inert until it is moved. Even a smile requires an intent coupled with energy from the life force to be shaped.
The message I want to bring to you dear readers today is, without energy and an intent to move, or to lift yourself up, or to smile, to be happy, to think positive, to do something creative, nothing can be achieved! And it all starts with a decision, an intent!
It is easy to think negative, to think of present lack and present situations and lament over it. It is easy to complain, to blame, to justify why you haven’t achieved. It is easy to blame your family, your parents, your government, your conditions. All too easy. That’s why majority of people do not achieve their goals. That’s also the reason why most people are unhappy focusing on present conditions. And the more you focus on it the more life gives you what you focus on!
It takes a daily decision to think positive, to appreciate, to see the good, to dream, to set goals, to look for opportunities, to create opportunities! All it takes is a daily intent in the morning how you want to live and think today. Where do you live in your psychological world? Where do you allow your consciousness, your mind to vibrate? I can now appreciate those people who are positive, because I realize it takes daily effort to be positive.
What I encourage everyone to do is to start reframing your thoughts if you catch yourself thinking negatively. Try to think of the subject in another more positive, empowering or less negative tone. Changing your mindset will change your destiny because it will change the vibration of your consciousness and what you attract into your life.
Here’s a daily mental exercise you can do. Decide to be mindful of your inner conversations (ie. your self talk) during the day. If you catch yourself thinking disempowering thoughts or dwell in any negative thoughts, you must decide to reframe the thought into a positive one. Try your best to reframe it.
For example, if you didn’t do well at school, or at work, instead of feeling bad, start reframing it to “what can I learn from this and become better from it?”
If someone is rude to you, instead of feeling bad or thinking negative thoughts about the person, try to reframe it to “Isn’t it good that it reminds me not to do that myself because it will make me so unpopular?”, or “well he must have had a rough day or worried about something, I really pity him”. See how few simple reframes will stop you from focusing on the negative and neutralize any negative sentiment?
Reframe all the negative thoughts that enter your mind one by one. You will notice it takes real deliberate effort at the beginning. But once you learn the trick to reframing, you can start tossing out those negative thoughts even before they are finished!
Guess how much you will be raising the vibration of your consciousness and emotions when this becomes a habit? You will be attracting things that fit your new vibrations, things that make you feel even more positive and happy. You will be creating everyday miracles!
One thing for sure, the result of this new vibration will turn your life into new positive conditions and experiences. When you look back from that place of success and happiness, you will appreciate the simple little mental reframing exercise that you decided to do today!
