We like to make life more complicated than it is, we naturally see the negative. Don’t blame yourselves, the media teaches us to do this, every day. When was the last time you saw a front page news story that was celebrating something amazing not reporting on something tragic? I can’t even remember.
But media aside, I can promise you that all battles are won from the inside out.
Let me explain.
The mind is your battleground:
- It’s the place where all conflict is won or lost
- It’s the place where your worst fears manifest and often, never actually happen
- It’s the place where you fall victim of your own thoughts time and time again
There is a saying: ‘you act as the truth as you believe it to be’.
If you allow self-defeating thoughts to dwell in your mind, you will act accordingly, you alone will be the reason why you are living a life that makes you unhappy.
You are what you think! And you can’t change anything in your life if you can’t change your thinking.
So how do you do it?
Every time you find yourself thinking something negative, STOP. And say to yourself, that is not me, I am not like that anymore. I am happy, thankful, clever, beautiful etc… Replace the negative with a positive, remember, you act as the truth as you believe it to be. Good luck!
