Do you want to know the one simple thing you must know to change your life? The simple principle on which I base any and all habit changes and on which this blog is founded upon? Here’s a hint: it begins with your mind.
The two topics I discuss which get the most email response are when I write about being overweight or the power of positive thinking. I was going back through email responses to some archived posts and found an interesting pattern-every single email arguing against the law of attraction came from self-professed “realists” (the word I used to describe myself when I was a more negative thinker) who had never tried to implement the principle. On the other hand, those who emailed to express their belief in the power of positive thinking were former negative thinkers who had used the principle to change.
It seems that any time I express my belief that you can alter the course of your life by simply changing the way you think, people come out of the woodwork to debate me-or should I say negative people come out of the woodwork to debate.
Change begins at the moment you change your thinking.
I am a people watcher as many of you know. I watch successful people and I pay attention to their life habits. I also watch less successful people and I pay attention to their life habits. It was this type of comparison thinking that led me to change my thinking about 2 years ago. I determined that I was not pleased with the results I was getting and decided to change my daily habits to mirror those of successful people. To that point my habits were not producing the results I wanted and I recognized that I needed to make changes.
I began by making my bed every morning. I began watching the foods I put in my body. I started exercising a little. I started to read a bit more. I eliminated television from my life. I started this blog. I completely restructured my daily habits and slowly but surely my life began to change. It wasn’t easy, but it happened.
If you are not happy with what you are getting from life, then maybe it is time for a mental revolution?! Maybe it is time for you to take back some control of your life. Maybe it is time for you to take a serious look at the destructive force that is your own thinking. Change happens in a split second at the moment you realize you can no longer continue as you are and something new is required.
Call it the law of attraction or the power of positive thinking or whatever you want to call it-I call it the truth. Know this my friend-if you leave your life to the roll of the dice, your life will be unpredictable and random.
