Think and grow rich… positive thoughts equal positive outcomes right? Here are a couple….
Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.
It takes but one positive thought when given a chance to survive and thrive to overpower an entire army of negative thoughts.
All this is true. Thinking positive will keep you afloat. But I believe there is something even greater. We can think positive all we want, but it starts and comes from our emotions. It’s how you feel inside that gives you the WILL. The WILL to want more, to do more.
So, how is your life going? I mean this in all aspects. Work, love, family, friends and yourself.
If you could describe who you are in 3 words for each good and bad, what would it be? Write it down please. For the 3 good things, why do you feel this way about yourself? Really think about. It makes you smile right? Warms your heart?
For the 3 bad things, why do you do feel this way? And how does it make you feel?
Let me help…think of 2 things you could do to change these negative feelings. Whether it be something that exists inside yourself or outside yourself. I suggest you write it down and look at it everyday, a couple of times a day. Why? You want it to be ingrained in your brain. Subconsciously you’ll work on you, your mental state daily. Everyday is a new day for change. A new day for you to grow and become closer to the person you want to be. But, remember there will always be things that we cannot change. Some things are out of our control. We just have to accept it and learn how to deal with them.
Every day you should look at this list. Remind yourself why you’re so great and try to better yourself to become even greater. You see, it’s the little things that you do everyday that help you become a better you, at everything you do. For the not so good thoughts of yourself, you have a plan written out, commit to changing because you deserve more. And so do the people around you. We’re not perfect, but so perfect in other ways. Flaws are born in everyone.
Made a wrong turn, Once or twice
Dug my way out, Blood and fire
Bad decisions, That’s alright
Welcome to my silly life
Mistreated, misplaced, misunderstood
Miss “no way, it’s all good”, It didn’t slow me down
Mistaken, Always second guessing
Under estimated, Look, I’m still around
Pretty, pretty please
Don’t you ever, ever feel
Like your less than Fuckin’ perfect.
Pretty, pretty please
If you ever, ever feel
Like your nothing
You’re fuckin’ perfect to me.
How you feel about yourself is key to living a happy life. If you’re emotions are staggered on the not good enough, lazy, dirty, hot-tempered and whatever else you’re negatively thinking about yourself, you’re stuck. You can’t be at your best when something is weighing you down. We need to feel whole. We need to truly believe in ourselves. Good emotions equal success in anything you want to do. Remember…look at this list everyday.
Lets talk outside relationships. How is your relationship with your loved ones and friends? In these areas of your life, it’s an equal give and take. Do you nurture your relationships? Do you vent more negative than positive? Are you there when needed? Do you show appreciation to those good to you with words and action? You cannot just care for someone, you have to physical show, speak and be consistent in these things. You should not pound your insecurities on your loved ones constantly. All that negative ora can be draining if constant. When they need you, like really need you, you need to be there. Show up, with open arms and a strong back. When we are this way, we should EXPECT the same in return. If we give the best of ourselves to these people, they must give us the best of their-self. But that’s not always the case. A lot of us do have individuals we love that only take from us. To keep these people in your daily constant can be tragic. Your emotions will be poisoned on a daily basis. At this state, you’ll never find the will to be successful. No matter how much positive thinking you do, your emotions will overcome it all. Leaving you fighting with yourself. Wondering why you can’t seem to get things done. Wondering why you can’t write a single article or sell a single product. These people you have to remove out of your life. If that’s not possible, like if it’s your mom -_- …try to keep a good distance. No one said you have to answer the phone every single time they call…or show up to all of their events. This way, you can breathe. You can go about your day with good emotions. Happy joy, joy and not Downer Debbie.
Now we have work. Do you hate your job? I sure do dislike what I do. I mean it’s not horrible, but it sure is meaningless. If I could do anything, it would be travel, go around and save the world. I want to change people’s lives. Help those in need. But, I have a child to raise and bills to pay. Therefore, I work a job with benefits and vacation time. Right now my mission is to raise a child to become the best person possible. My first and foremost is my child. Do I get lost in being a mom and put my dreams on the back burner? To some extent yes. I still go out and volunteer. It may not be on a grand scale but I am helping people. In that I find so much joy. I even bring my son along. It’s a valuable experience that he will take with him when he becomes a man. Instead of wishing things were different, or thinking my dreams are a lost cause…I find solutions. I figure out what I can do and drop the the “can’t do” attitude.
Wanna know what keeps me sane sitting at a desk ALL day? I have other aspirations. I really HATE being told what to do. That means, I need to be my own boss. I’m working in Social Media, MLM and trying to get my foot into real estate. All this also requires money. Therefore I keep my JOB in the meantime. Knowing I have so much more going on keeps my emotions in a positive state. I have my tough days believe me. But I refuse to give up. I refuse to give in. No matter what others say, I refuse. It’s normally the people closest to you who don’t think you’ll succeed. Crazy huh? Well, it’s not my fault nor yours because they have settled themselves.
So, if you love your job, great. More power to you. Keep what’s good. If you don’t love your job, find out what it is you really want to do. Start working on it, now. Time is of the essence, no more wasting it. As your paving your way, your emotions will be good. Leading the way to success.
Positive thinking is great. But our inner being comes first. Nurture you, from the inside out. Good emotions equal success. Bad emotions equal…I’m sure you know.
Till next time…take care friends. Go work on you!
