Dr. Wayne Dyer also wrote a book called Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life where the main concept is the same.
So, my intention for today is to show you the connection that exists from a thought to having a better life.
What are thoughts?
Sometimes those glimpses of energy, if given enough attention, can grow and become the greatest moments, ideas or experiences for you and even the entire humanity. Or they can grow to become one of the darkest moments, ideas, or experiences for you and even the entire humanity.
As you can see, it all depends on the attention you give to them.
Generation of Ideas
I mean, the design of the clothes you are wearing right now came from an idea that was generated from a thought.
The electronic device you are using to read this blog came from the idea of someone who had a thought that it was possible to make it.
The shooting in Columbine High School, also came from an idea generated from a thought that it could be possible.
Do you get my point? It all begins with a thought and then you give it attention which then gives it direction to become an idea.
How Do We Give Direction To Thoughts
Your perceptions, which is the way you see life, are composed of your own beliefs, your own desires, your own goals, and experiences you've had.
Just by changing or modifying one of those components, you change your perception and your thought can become a complete different idea than it could have been.
Something else you can also do, is just dismiss the thought as soon as you notice that you don't like the direction it's taking.
How To Predict The Direction of a Thought
The answer lies in the next step. How does thinking that thought makes you feel? If it makes you feel good, it is very likely that the reaction you will have is a positive one. But if the emotion you get by having that thought is not so good, then it is very likely that the reaction you will have is not so good.
And that is how your life, reaction by reaction, becomes your making.
So, what are you thinking today?
