Do you believe that your thoughts become who you are?
You need to be aware of what your mindset is, as many of your present moments as you can. Why? Because what you are thinking about yourself, people, situations, your life, anything, will eventually become who you are and what you have in your life.
If you are constantly thinking of things you don’t want in your life, and are focusing on what you are afraid of, and who or what you’re unhappy with, you will become someone who isn’t very pleasant to be around. You will become an unhappy person who complains and you will not be living a life you love. You will be creating things in your life that at your heart of hearts, you truly don’t want.
You need to become aware of your thoughts throughout everyday. Stop as often as you can, and check in with yourself and pay attention to what you’re feeling at that moment. Our emotions are our guidance system, telling us what we are thinking. The more positive thoughts you are thinking regularly, the better you will feel in any given moment.
It’s really up to each one of us to not live on autopilot and go through our days, moving from one thing to the next, without paying attention to what’s going on inside of us and also, what’s going on around us.
We need to guard our thoughts and our mindset carefully and intentionally. And as you do this, you will begin to create a happier, more joyful life, with more things going on that you truly love. Your relationships may change for the better. As you stop and appreciate what you have in your life, and find many things around you that you appreciate, your mood will change to more joy, and you’ll begin to feel more love for yourself and others.
In this photo above, this is me and my cousin, Kenny. We are the same age, and grew up together. We remain close to this day. We both turn 60 years old this year. And our mindset will play a big part in what’s going on in our life, as we hit this milestone birthday and year. Kenny already turned 60 in January, and I will in July.
I feel more youthful than what I think of as 60 years old. I guard my mindset carefully on a daily basis.
Your action step this week is to slow down and pay attention to how you feel and what you are thinking as many moments as you can each day. Will you do that?
Write to me and tell me one thing you will do this week and from now on, to help yourself create a more joyful, loving and appreciative mindset!
Blessings to you,
