“You only have control over three things in your life – the thoughts you think, the images you visualize and the actions you take. And how you use those three things determines everything you experience.” Jack Canfield, Author and Speaker.
Most of us have heard of the quote that says we become what we think about or what we focus on most of the time. The thoughts we have, cause us to feel a certain way and those feelings in turn cause us to act in a certain way and become the results of our lives. This then can become like an endless circle and unless we break the cycle at the thought stage it will be pretty much impossible to alter our feelings and actions. If you watch someone’s behaviour you can work out what they have been thinking. And what we are thinking now affects the future.
We have the choice about the thoughts we have and we can choose to change them at any given moment and therefore change the outcome of our feelings and actions. If you are feeling low, you are the only person responsible for that. So often those low thoughts are not truths so ask yourself is it worth thinking them if they are going to make you feel so blue. Just think how much better you could feel if you didn’t think those particular thoughts.
Enjoy changing the gears of your thoughts! Robyn
