Change your Thoughts.
Your life experience is flavored by your thoughts, perceptions, and reactions. If you take a moment to reflect on the pivotal circumstances in your life, you will see that it is not actually the event itself, but your reaction (your thoughts translated into action) to it that creates the defining moments. Our lives are made up of realizations (a-ha's) when our filter expands and we begin to see the world differently.
The value of this ancient wisdom is that it reminds you that you are the architect of your life. You can literally reconstruct your life at any point by beginning with your thoughts. Change your thinking, change your life. This truth is found in all of the major religions, cultures, and philosophies. Why? It is the truth; it permeates and survives the limited perspective and dogma of man. Is it easy? No, it requires a great deal of discipline. Is it rewarding? The answer is, of course, rhetorical; yet, many will resign from the responsibility that immediately follows the realization.
Begin with today. Who would you like to be today and what are the thoughts that are most effective for that being? Be patient with yourself and watch a new way of being unfold.
Success or sabotage? You are always choosing one or the other; why not be conscious of the choice that you're making?
Is this going to be an incredible day? What do you THINK?f
