What consumes your mind controls your life

What consumes your mind controls your life….

What’s on your mind?

Is your life centered on what you’re thinking about?

Are your thoughts positive or negative?

Most of my life I wasted being obsessing about all the things that I perceived were wrong or could go wrong in my life. I wasted so much time for years on repeat worrying about the things that could go wrong that hadn’t even happened yet. Yes, I thought I could see into my negative future.

Does this sound familiar?

Every single thought I had about my life was negative. You would be shocked to know my life was in a constant state of negativity.

The mind is powerful. What you put out to the world comes back to you. I put out to the world for many years that I hated my life, my luck was bad, I was unlovable, I was ugly, I was never going to succeed, I would never have enough money, and that I was an all-around horrible person.

What caused me to feel like this? It was my repetitive negative thoughts. I beat myself down and I let myself go. I gave up caring. I was stuck in a dangerous comparison game. You know the one I am talking about. I only saw the good side of people but the worst version of myself.

My shift from negative to positive came when I no longer wanted to live. When I was ready to give up on myself and for what? My negative thoughts consumed me. I chose to only see the darkness, not the light.

Deep in the depths of my negativity, there was always a teeny tiny light of positivity trying to get out of the blackness of negativity that consumed me. When I finally gave up I laid down in my bathtub ready to leave this world my thoughts had won. My dog jumped in the tub and put his sweet little head on my shoulder. He looked at me with those cute eyes and giant ears and it hit me I knew I wasn’t ready to go.

Deep, deep down like far down I always thought I was destined for a greater purpose in life. But with every negative thought, my positive light got smaller and smaller. I almost burnt that light out with the darkness of negativity. In the end I had a microscopic amber still glowing and I knew it was time for a big change.

When I decided to change my life I changed the way I thought about things and what I put out to the world. I also decided it was time to cut out the negative people in my life. You attract like-minded people into your life with your thoughts. I had a lot of negative people in my life; after all, misery does love company. Surround yourself with good people and life gets easier.

I started searching for programs, books, podcasts, speaking events, and hit the worldwide web in search of how to become more positive. I wanted to know to reprogram your thoughts into those of more positive. Is it possible to erase negativity and replace it with positivity? YES! Consume your mind with positivity.

I am not going to sugar coat this change is not easy. Change does not happen overnight. The change will strip you down to the bare depths of who you are. I will say change is worth it. It is never too late to make a change. You are never too old to make a change.

Let go of the negativity, focus on the positivity. Watch your life change for the best. I have never been happier with the changes in my life.

I choose to let go of my past.

I choose to let go of my negativity.

I choose to be present.

I choose to see the good.

I choose to be positive.

  1. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
