Start Your Day Off Perfectly with Positive Mind

Start Your Day Off Perfectly with Positive Mind

How do we start off our day so that it is enjoyable, exciting, fun, and loving? Thoughts! Yes, the thoughts we think carry an energy and ultimately create emotions and feelings within our bodies. The thoughts we think can make us happy or sad, energized or exhausted, loving or angry. Thoughts literally create our moods. Our moods then attract more of how we feel and thus what we experience during the day.

How do we begin to get a handle on all those thoughts we think all day long?

One of the fastest ways, is to begin in the morning with positive, loving, and grateful thoughts. When our bodies awaken each morning, often, we just start our day without much conscious thought about how we are feeling and what our intentions are for the day. What if, instead, we took a few minutes to consciously think about the day ahead of us. A day that we can create positively by using the power of our mind and the thoughts we are emitting.

One of the fastest ways to begin this process is being appreciative and grateful for all the world has to offer. Often, there are things in our lives that are not the way we want them to be and that can create challenges and frustrations. With a slight change in perception and approach, over time, a change in how we see our challenges can develop. We can become grateful for all the good things in our lives and hold a new perspective of issues we are facing.

Morning is a wonderful time to create a new approach on how to see the world. It is like New Year’s Eve each morning and the ability to think anew. Repetitive approaches of finding gratitude in the smallest of ways will eventually create changes within the everyday duties, obligations, and responsibilities that each of us have to complete.

Challenge to Listen to This Morning Meditation

Hay House is one of the most successful New Thought organizations in the world. It was founded by Louise Hay back in the 1980’s. In the attached video below produced by Hay House, Louise’s soft and gentle voice guides our thoughts to areas of gratitude and grace. She guides the listener to identify gratitude in so many parts of our lives that we often overlook, such as, turning on a faucet and having hot water easily pour out.

How often do we think about being grateful for that ease and convenience? As you listen to the guidance below, relax, think about how many of these things each of us have taken for granted, and then make a choice to become more conscious of being aware of all the good, all the conveniences, and all of the joy that is in our lives right now.

The best way to make a permanent change within your mind it to repeat something for approximately 21-30 days. So, take the challenge to listen to this morning meditation by Louise Hay for the next 3-4 weeks. Journal how you are feeling during the day as you begin this process. Watch over the next few weeks and identify areas of improvement in your life.

How is the result?

Do you feel happier? Do the things and people in your life seem less irritating? Are you more conscious of small things, such as a warm shower or a sunny day? Are you able to see a rainy day as a gift rather than a burden? Shifting the thoughts you think about, as you move through the parts of your day, to find what you can appreciate in it, will allow the heavier thoughts of anger, frustration, annoyance, and even revenge to float away like clouds in the sky.

Each of us control our own thoughts and learning that you have the power of thinking what you want, allows you to reframe events in your life to make the best out of everything that is happening to you, around you, and even in you. You are the power in your life and the thoughts you think will help you to use that power to create your own magical day.

Enjoy your life and know that you are in control of the thoughts you think. Those thoughts ultimately determine your emotions and how you feel and ultimately your life. Go forth and enjoy your day!

Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

The ability to reinvent and redefine yourself is a bold, daring and purposeful choice. It doesn’t just happen. You have to make a conscious, intentional choice and then follow through.

If the thought of forging a new path, changing habits, thought patterns and your inner circle of friends scares you – you’re not alone. Change can be a very scary thing. It takes courage, fortitude and a bit of faith to decide to shed your old self and don a new persona. However, it is one of the most critical processes one must repeatedly endure in the pursuit of destiny. Change unlocks new levels of potential.

The Need for Change

Everyday when we wake up, we make a decision. We decide to follow our routine or we decide to go off script and shake things up a bit. For those who are creatures of habit, routine is comfortable, easy and produces very little stress. The problem with this is, after a while you stop growing.

We all reinvent ourselves at some point in our lives. It is absolutely necessary to achieve certain levels of success.

Reflect back on who you were as a teenager and then who you were at 25. Those are two very different people. Most of us are completely different. Your thought patterns changed, your appearance, job, level of education and even your friends– changed. We like to refer to this as “growing up” or maturing and consider it to be one of life’s natural progressions. However the changes you made were purposeful and deliberate.

This process must be a lifelong and continuous cycle. You are never too old to refresh yourself.

    Signs It’s Time to Redefine

    “Just as established products and brands need updating to stay alive and vibrant, you periodically need to refresh or reinvent yourself.”– Mireille Guiliano

    So how do you know when it’s time for a system upgrade? There are signs along the way that alert you that it is time for an overhaul. The first sign is the feeling of being stuck. If you feel like you are in a rut, you’re bored with life or you need some newness and excitement, a self reinvention may be in order. Re-evaluate your life vision and your goals. Is that vision still valid and are your goals consistent with your vision and–are they achievable? If you are off course, it’s time for a change. If you are not moving forward and making progress, it’s time for a change.

    In life, there’s no such thing as neutrality–you’re either moving forward or you are moving backward. Time constantly moves forward and if you are standing still, you are actually losing ground. No matter your age or stage in life– there is always room for improvement.

    “You’re never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.” ~C. S. Lewis

    The second sign that you are due for a change is the occurrence of major life events in which change is forced upon you. Getting married, starting a new job, being promoted, ending a relationship, becoming a parenting or relocating are all prime opportunities to completely overhaul your life.

    When these major shifts occur in your life–you have to shift with them. You can’t have a single mentality and have a successful marriage. You can’t remain selfish and irresponsible, and raise a healthy, well-adjusted child. You can’t be promoted to a supervisory position and keep the same subordinate attitude. Each level of success requires something different from you.

      Consider, for a moment, Arnold Schwarzenegger. People may have different opinions about his character and some of his life choices, but he is a master at reinventing himself. He achieved the ultimate success as a professional body builder by earning the title “Mr. Universe” three times. He then earned a tremendous amount of fame and fortune in the entertainment industry making action/adventure films. And in his latest role, he served two terms as the Governor of California. He succeeded as a professional body builder, a film star and a politician. Each role required massive amounts of change, commitment, strength and hard work.

      And if Arnold can do it…so can you!
