- Change Your Thoughts and You Change Your World
~ Norman Vincent Peale ~
Where and what do you give your attention to? You probably don’t think about it.
Recent changes in our world have caused most of us to really slow down and notice what we are thinking about and what we are doing in our daily lives.
Have you ever noticed that what thoughts you give your attention to seems to give them more power? Stop and think about it. What if your thoughts were like a magnet which brought more thoughts of the same kind directly back to you and increased as you continually thought about them Wow. I know that is a powerful statement. I know this to be true in my life.
But if it were true, you would be very careful about what you were thinking, especially for an extended period of time.
Thoughts come up without your control. It’s about watching your thoughts that can create an awareness as to the fact you can try to control where they go to in your mind.
It’s not necessary to judge or criticize yourself about what you give your attention to. In reality, thoughts usually don’t have a lot of meaning. They come and go. Thoughts of happiness, tragedy, grief, unnecessary drama, worry, joy, relief, the past, and the future, etc.
Write them down for reflection. Then ask yourself “Are my thoughts going in a good direction that is good for me?”
Most of the time it really isn’t the external situations that are the problem. Its how our minds perceive them. Try thinking about that and see what you come up with.
Listed below are some resources for further inquiry about awareness.
