Our Thoughts Affect Our Lives


Over the years, I have come to see that our thoughts do affect our lives. When I’m feeling defeated and depressed I have no energy to focus on the things that will improve my situation. I mope, lie around, and feel sorry for myself –often blaming others, and yes even God, for my predicament, when I’m truth, I’m to blame. These are the times my health, my relationships, and my energy falter. Only by pulling myself out of the funk and negativity will I become empowered again.

The old adage “seek and ye shall find” remains as true as ever. If you look for proof that achieving big goals, big dreams and living a life of excitement and success is possible… you will find it.

However, if you look for proof that life is difficult, big goals are impossible to achieve and success is reserved only for a select few…you will surely find that as well.

There’s nothing more empowering than coming to the realization that you can have, do and be anything you want!

The problem for most people is they don’t believe it is possible for them.

Knowing exactly how your life is working right now will:

a) Allow you to appreciate what you are doing well and feel successful.

b) Allow you to be motivated by the things you are unsatisfied with.

You need to know exactly where you are today at all levels of life. So, take some time to write down what are you happy with, and what aren’t happy with in terms of…

  • health
  • relationships
  • money
  • work
  • passion/energy

For the results you are happy with, write down why you are happy.

For the results you are unhappy with, write down why you are unhappy.

Now write down exactly how you want each area of your life to look if there were no limits.

If you were as powerful and resourceful as you wanted to be, how would your life look?

Now ask yourself, what determines your level of power and resourcefulness?

You do! It’s entirely up to you. You can both embrace all of your power and see what you are really made of, OR you can put a limit on your thinking and actions and continue to produce results you are unhappy with.

Which do you choose to do?
