Manage your Thoughts.
We are amazing creatures with powerful minds at our disposal. Sometimes, however, we forget that the mind and our thoughts are at our disposal. We live as if we answer to our thoughts rather than manage them.
I never cease to be amazed at those who will discount the power of thought as "positive thinking mumbo jumbo." The same critics will fully invest themselves in the worry of the unknown. Now, one can certainly produce the evidence for why one could be worried in various situations, and it is understandable. One fact remains, however: worry is an investment in speculation. If you are going to take the time, energy and focus on investing in an assumption, why are you so quick to invest in the negative assumption or outcome? It is not logical, and I would suggest that the return on investment is much smaller than the alternative.
Worry is a natural option, but it comes at a high price. It fuels more worry. It impedes creativity, growth, and success (not to mention the effect it has on one's health). Give thought to that which concerns you today. Entertain an alternative for a few moments. What if everything turned out better than you ever expected for thought possible? What if this situation that worries you was going to provide you with a gift greater than the pain and stress that you have already endured? What if?
Success or sabotage? Do your thoughts feed or impede your success? Are you more comfortable with worry than the alternatives?
Is this going to be an incredible day? What if you chose to surrender your worry for another day?
