You can change your life or any part of it by simply changing your thinking. You are asking, ‘How do I change my thinking?’. It is easier than you think. Your thoughts
become habits which become your beliefs. You are still in control of your thoughts, or are you? Do you want to be? You can be, by simply applying a few new habits in your daily life. Ever know anyone that is always saying, ‘I’m so fat, no matter what I do to try to lose weight, I just stay fat, nothing works’. Those thoughts become their belief and with the Universal Law of Belief and the Universal Law of Attraction, they remain ‘fat’ no matter what weight loss programs they try. The most common remarks I hear today is, “The economy is so bad…I can’t afford it…everything is so high…so many people are out of jobs, etc” If you keep thinking like this, you will believe it and you’ll live it and worry, fear, anxiety and depression will set in. These kind of thoughts are very negative thinking which creates negative energy that goes out in the Universe, permeating and penetrating all space, attracting more negative energy back to you and before you know it, you’ve become a big crap magnet! You’ll soon have problems, if you don’t already. Is that the kind of life you want to live? Certainly not!
The worst beliefs are the self-limiting beliefs. You may think you lack intelligence or abilities to do what it is you want to do, achieve goals or be creative, earn a high income, lose weight, are not as good as someone else or can’t be the person you want to be. These self-limiting beliefs create the worst negative thoughts making you your own worst enemy. Your beliefs then become your realities. Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right”. You can change all that negative energy around to living a life of abundance, happiness, health and harmony.
Some of you think your thoughts just flow in randomly, millions of thoughts a day just flows in your mind, without any control on your part. And they might just do that but if they do, you are living by default. You let life happen to you. You can learn to control your thoughts, with practice and create the life you really want. It takes some effort on your part but it is much easier to get control of your thoughts than you may think.
First you need to understand there are Universal Laws by which we live that are immutable, unwavering, without error working whether you realize it or not, all the time just as the Law of Gravity and 32 other laws that affect your life every second of everyday. One is The Law of Belief, a very powerful law which comes from within which is the reason for “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve”. This means whatever you believe, with conviction, becomes your reality, even if the odds are against you. This is the basic underlying principle for most psychology, philosophy and metaphysics. The New Testament says, “According to your faith, it is done unto you.” The Old Testament says, “As a man thinketh, in his heart (his beliefs), so is he.”
You can start by removing these limitations believing you have no limitations and start believing you can do anything, be anything and have anything. Start dreaming and writing your life like a script for a play, how you want to see your life play out. You must write it in the present tense as if it is already a reality and feel it with emotion when you visualize it as you write. Get a notebook and write about your life everyday, adding more detail everyday. Get up a few minutes early to write about the life you dream you are living and spend a few minutes writing before you go to sleep. In between time, day dream about the life you are living in your notebook and replace any negative thoughts immediately with positive ones. Fill your idle mind with affirmations, stopping any negative thoughts flowing in. Use affirmations for the area of your life you want to improve the most. For example, if you want to improve your health, repeat over and over in your mind or loud enough you can hear yourself with emotion, “I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy” or “Everyday in everyway, I am becoming stronger and stronger, healthier and healthier, better and better, happier and happier” If you want more money fast: “There is an avalanche of money coming to me now…And I receive it with open arms and I am grateful” or “Every minute of everyday, millions (thousands or hundreds) of dollars flow to me now…instantly, effortlessly, naturally now”. If it is something you want to be, say “I can be what I will to be and I will to be..(Ex: the best salesman in the company by such & such date) With practice, you can develop your mind to the point, you not only believe that you can do, have or be anything you put your mind to, the Universal Law of Attraction will make it a reality, somehow, some way. Do not be concerned about how it will happen or where it will come from but just believe it will come to be one way or another. Expect the results you dream and move forward with intentions of it coming to be.
In an effort to be positive, you must get rid of most of the negative thinking and it gets easier with practice. Wear a rubber band on your wrist and snap it hard if you have a negative thought or say anything negative, gossip or even agree with someone about something negative. Be honest with yourself and snap it and you will break this bad habit of being negative. Stay away from negative people for at least 30 – 90 days, until you get your life balanced. Take inventory of the people you talk to or are around and do you usually feel better or worse after you’ve been around them or talked to them? Stay away from all the negative energy you can and that most certainly includes most of television, especially the news. The news in this country is like the big bad wolf in the 1963 Disney Cartoon in ‘Chicken Little’ telling everyone the sky is falling. The chickens run around squawking to each other in fear, listening to the wolf talking through the fence, guiding them to the cave, where he later sits, licking his lips and the bones.
The news media seems to be great at instilling fear into the American people. Stop feeding that fear and be positive and you will certainly see everything improve in your life. Your entire life can change dramatically if you continue practicing this.
It all starts with you in control of your thoughts, focusing upon what it is you desire, hard and long enough, with determination, becomes your beliefs, which becomes your reality. Whatever you so desire, with determination, focusing on it daily, visualizing and feeling it with emotion will come to be. This is how you can change your beliefs, reprogramming your Super Conscious mind.
