We are addicted to our thoughts. We cannot change anything if we cannot change our thinking.
Santosh KalwarInsert story.
As a low esteem person, I had held many false assumptions about people, that I later discovered that it was just an illusion which just appeared as a reality. Some, the way they behaved towards me, treated me, the way they looked at me. Which makes me isolate myself from people, look down on myself, been the victim guy. Realize it is causing more havoc than good, I know it is time to do something about it.
Things just don’t change by folding my hand and expecting things to happen, I took a proactive step by:
Reading motivational books,
listen to sermons, motivational video.
Repeating positive affirmations words,
Praying to God.
It is when those things I listed above begin to influence my mind that my thinking began to change and begin to see people, the world with a different perspective.
Your thought will make or mar your potential.
When your thought is negative, you will breed out negative words and take negative action.
Our thought pattern often times determines our outcome in life, as often said, “As a man thinketh so he is”. the moment you repeatedly say a word to yourself whether positive or negative; our subconscious mind start rejecting the statement at first, but when persistent in repeating it consciously or unconsciously, our mind begins to accept it as a reality.
Our mind can’t distinguish between good or bad but will accept as a reality; what you often say to yourself.
That’s why you have to:
“Watch your thoughts, they become words;
watch your words, they become
watch your actions, they become
watch your habits, they become
watch your character, for it becomes
A human being is a being full of thought, thought on what to eat, cloth to wear, which job to do and so on.
The thought that influences our mind most will be what we become one day.
Our thought gives birth, the smartphone or the computer you are using now, the t.v, the aeroplane, social amenities, and the greatest invention was first conceived as a thought in someone else mind.
To create a positive thought towards that thing that seems impossible at the moment (starting a blog, asking someone out, Having a lasting relationship, winning a game) and so on. Because the thought you feed yourself, you will eventually give birth to it.
You can be a good person, wife, husband, man, and leader if your thought is pure. And also miserable with an impure mindset. That’s why you need to be careful of what thought you let influence you daily.
If our thoughts are kind,
peaceful, and quiet, turned only toward good, then we also influence ourselves and radiate
peace all around us, in our family, in the whole country, everywhere.
Your mind is a very powerful weapon, you have to take time to reflect on your thought. Think about what you are thinking and extract unproductive thought. Because in the long run, your thought will sabotage your progress.
Your thought will make you reactive, passive or proactive, make you win or lose a competition.
So if you think you’re a
failure, you’ll feel like a failure. Then, you’ll act like a failure, which reinforces your belief that you must be a failure.
If you alter the statement “am not good enough’ this assumption will lead you to feel discouraged and causes you not to put in the best of your effort in what you are doing or about to do. Not putting in the best of your effort will prevent you from attaining the best of your potential in life.
Over 12,000 to 70,000 thoughts pop up in our mind daily, so, don’t bother to eliminate them but put under control the dominant thoughts and beliefs that you must learn to bring under your conscious control as they are what largely determine your mental attitude.
Henceforth. Turn it into a habit to speak good of everything, speak good, speak positive and you will surely become that.
What are those things that influence our mind/thought most? This will be my next post. So stay tuned for the next post.
1. Throughout this week try to take note of the thought that proceeds from your mind daily.
2. Replace the negative one with affirmations(repetition of a positive word) and continue to increase the positive thought by repeating it more.
How are you able to control your thought?
Is your thought for or against you?
