Change your Mind, Change your Life

What if I told you that you are creating your own misery?  When you take a step back, its crazy to realize how negative we can be. It's easier to see the negative in things and because we are so used to viewing what may go wrong or what is going wrong, we don't even acknowledge the good or possible good.  You can completely turn your life around by doing one thing - training your mind to change your entire outlook on your life.  

Mindset is a choice. It's only YOU who can change it. When you start changing your mindset and outlook to a positive one, you will be amazed at how drastically your life changes for the better. Here are some tips to get started:

When you get a negative thought, don't pay attention to it. It will lead to a chain of negative thoughts. You think about a break up, which leads to thinking about that person, which leads to thinking about the time spent, then to the arguments, which can lead into thinking negatively about yourself and what you feel was your fault. Its best to avoid these as much as possible.  Even if the reason seems ridiculous, force yourself to find a positive in any situation. This may sound silly and outrageous in some situations, but this is how you TRAIN your mind to automatically go to the positive. Going through a breakup? Find something that you learned from it. Rear end someone? Be thankful that you're still alive to deal with the situation. Too tired to workout? Some people wish that they had the ability to.  Focus on what you want and what makes you happy. The more you think and visualize what you want, the faster it will reach to you.

Another tip is try speaking like you already have it. It's all about how you train your mind to think and focus and VISUALIZE what you want. I suggest making a vision board of all the things you want in life, all the feelings you want to feel. This may sound crazy but it works!  What you resist will persist. So don't stop anything hard. Just let it flow and accept how it is. Trust that things workout for a reason and then change your feelings about it to be positive.  We automatically end a sentence "what if____" with something negative, and that stems from anxiety. What if I don't get the job position, what if I fail this test, what if I don't get into this school? Try changing it up by saying what if I do get this job position, what if I do pass this test, what if I do get into this school? Remember, YOU only have the key to unlock your happiness.

"Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words, as they become actions.

Watch your actions, as they become habits.

Watch your habits, they become your character.

Watch your character, it becomes your destiny”
