I've learnt some incredible lessons this week. Lessons about dealing with my own thought processes and how to direct them in order to obtain my desired outcomes.
This week has been very up and down for me, and I've realised how much of that is in my control. Tuesday was a particularly bad day, because of how I had let my thought patterns spiral downwards into a cesspit of negativity. I was dwelling on all the aspects that I thought were not right in my life, instead of focusing on all the aspects that I am grateful for.
It was so unhealthy to be in that negative mindset. I felt discouraged and worthless, I felt sorry for myself, and all because I didn't see any positive signs from the amount of hard work I have been doing recently. I made a decision that I was not going to allow myself to get that low again.
I chose to become more proactive in a certain area, which I felt that I needed to do. However, before enbarking on this particular activity, I decided that I was going to use some different positive affirmations.
FOR EXAMPLE; INSTEAD OF SAYING TO MYSELF "WHO DARES WINS" I SAID TO MYSELF "I DARE, SO I WIN"
INSTEAD OF SAYING; "FORTUNE FAVOURS THE BOLD" I SAID "FORTUNE FAVOURS ME"
"I AM THE AUTHOR OF MY OWN GOOD FORTUNE"
This helped me tremendously. I started today with these positive affirmations and kept saying them to myself throughout the day. I can safely say, that I have had the best day that I can remember, for many years. The longer l live, the more aware I become of the fact that our lives are in our minds.
Whether you're having a good day or a bad day, is not only a matter of perspective, but the fact remains, it really is up to you. No matter what happens to you, you are in control of how you respond. Moreover, it is up to you how you start and go about your day, according to how you develop and maintain your mindset.
That being said, I am fully aware of the fact that everyday is different, so we need to take one day at a time, but direct that day according to the outcome that we want.
So here's to the rest of our wonderful lives!
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, THINK BIG, AND FOLLOW YOUR HEART
