One of the biggest things I’ve had to learn is to “control my thoughts”. I find my mind so interesting, it’s so eager to go to negative spaces, and jump to conclusions, and give in to fear, doubt and discouragement. But, when you can control your thoughts, and move them in the direction of more positive things, everything changes!
Being able to successfully control your thoughts so that you can control your life from within is one of the best ways to awaken the spiritual side of yourself. When you focus on positive rather than negative thoughts, you become a powerful ally to yourself, firmly pointing your destiny in a direction that will help you conquer anything holding you back from success.
When you’re truly in charge of creating your life’s destiny, you become confident and assured because your mind is nurturing rather than tearing down and preventing you from enjoying life to the fullest extent possible.
In the beginning, it sometimes takes a conscious decision on your part to stop the flow of negativity, but eventually you’ll come to the place where the negative thoughts simply “ping” off your mind before they can cause damage.
You may believe that a negative thought has already done its damage by simply entering your mind. But, a thought only damages your thinking process when it’s allowed to linger – to become a strong and powerful force in your mind, repeating itself when necessary to keep you under its “spell.”
To lessen the impact of negative thoughts, begin to think of them as separate from yourself. Only when you begin to realize that negative thoughts are foreign invaders and not part of your true thought process will you be able to release them quickly and effectively.
