"The greatest discovery you'll ever make, is the potential of your own mind."
~ Jose Silva
This is so true. The longer I practice and the more I learn, the more I realize how powerful our own minds are. Your mind can help create your wildest dreams, or can keep you stuck and miserable. When you harness what your mind can do for you--so that it empowers you--you open a world of opportunities for yourself.
This week: Spend some time thinking about how your mind works FOR you. Write down the ways that your thinking empowers you to achieve your goals. This is what you will want to do more of. Then, think about the ways that your thinking keeps you stuck. What thoughts, feelings, beliefs, attitudes work to empower you? What thoughts, feelings, beliefs and attitudes work to make you feel bad? Write these down. Come up with 3 ways you empower yourself through your thinking. Now, every time you start to think those negative thoughts, replace them with the empowering thoughts. Notice what happens. While this may not change everything for you, it will at least make you more awareof the power of your thoughts.
