"Man's greatness lies in his power of thought." Blaise Pascal
Noted motivational speaker Zig Ziglar has said we all need an occasional check up from the neck up to avoid what he calls stinkin' thinkin.' I couldn't agree more. With so much go on almost all of the time in our lives, it's easy to catch a big time case of the stinkin' thinkin' blues.
Our heads can get clogged with all sorts of clutter. There are negative things that bring us down, negative thoughts that leave us feeling empty and unfulfilled. There are negative feelings that depress us and deflate us. And, of course, there's always the negative input we constantly receive from those all around us. In fact, our heads can get so jam packed with negativity that they feel like they're about to explode.
"God has given us control over one thing in our lives - our thoughts." Napoleon Hill
As the stinkin' thinkin' begins to set in, we start thinking about mistakes we have made; mistakes almost too numerous to count. We start looking back at opportunities we have squandered, worrying that we have missed the boat. As the doubts and insecurities come crashing in, we start wondering if we truly have what it takes to get the job done. Bogged down under the weight of a hundred negative thoughts, our minds start to shut down. And the negativity begins to take over.
What we need is that check up from the neck up. And we need it now.
The Roman philosopher Horace once said, "Rule your mind or it will rule you." He was reminding us that we can control our minds by controlling what goes in and, more importantly, what stays in our minds. While we may not be able to completely shut off the flow of negative stuff in our lives, we can definitely make sure we constantly feed our minds positive thoughts and positive ideas. And maintain a positive outlook on life as well.
"Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think." Benjamin Disraeli
You are where you are right now primarily due to the thoughts that occupy your mind. If you believe that life is rotten and things never go your way, chances are fairly high that your life will be rotten and things won't go your way. On the other hand, if you possess a perpetually optimistic and positive air about you, chances are pretty good that positive things will take place in your life.
It's time to purge the negativity from your mind. Get rid of it once and for all. That means flushing out the negative thoughts, ideas and attitudes that have dominated your thinking for way too long and replacing it with an enthusiastic, upbeat, positive charged outlook on life. Instead of thinking you can't, start believing you can. Instead of playing it safe, start playing to win. Get positive, get energized and for goodness sakes, get going. You'll be amazed at how quickly you can turn your life around by simply changing what you think and what you think about.
"You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you." James Lane Allen
Charles F. Kettering said, "Where there is an open mind there will always be a frontier." A frontier where there are no limits on how high you can fly, on how much you can live and experience each and every day. A frontier where you can live out your fondest dreams, a frontier that can take you anywhere you have ever wanted to go.
Rather than waste one more day worrying, fretting and wondering about what might have been, why not make your dreams come true right here? Instead of slogging your way through another ho-hum day, why dont you take charge of your thoughts and forge the fabulous future you and your family deserve right now?
Are you ready to change things up? Then put the good stuff in - and you'll get the good stuff out. Read something inspiring today. Listen to something that stirs you today. Associate with positive people today. And fully immerse yourself in a positive charged, power packed environment all day long. Do this each and every day and before you know it, you will be living the life you love - and loving the life you live.
The Bottom Line: Change your thoughts and you'll change your life.
