When you decide to change your mind, it happens very quickly. The instant you make the change, you will know it. It is like a switch flips in your head, and you see the world with more clarity and more positivity. When I say change your mind, I mean step outside your preconceived notions to a more positive perspective. This is the root of positive change in your life.
Though the change of the mind happens in an instant, it really is a long-term project. It is important to realize that, and understand that whatever your age is, that is how long it took you to bring your mind to where it is now. So it will take some time to make changes for the better. Especially when you are changing habits to make yourself a healthier person. The old saying, “old habits die-hard” may apply here. But though that may be true, you must remember that you are an evolving, changing being. Sure, you can fight that, by planting your feet in one spot. But know that when you do that, there is no movement and you can’t allow change. So inject some movement, and look at all options in every situation. Look at different perspectives. Talk to others in a given situation and listen to their perspective, to see that life really is about perspective. Watch, listen and learn, always staying open to new information and ways of handling things.
So, if you’ve decided to change your mind for the positive, and you are watching, listening and learning you must also map out how you will continually increase your positive thinking. Will you start to do some meditation to open your mind and/or clear it? Will you make sure you get some sunshine everyday? Can you take the time to write down at least one blessing everyday? Will you say positive affirmations? These are some examples of putting your decision into action.
You see, you must be sure that you keep moving your mind to the positive with every day that passes. You must not waiver on your decision to change your mind. If you are presented with a challenge, train yourself to look at it as just that. And tell yourself that it is only a bump in the road. If you hit a roadblock, find a way around it. We all tend to make mountains out of mole hills at times. That kind of thinking though, doesn’t help you to a peaceful and more positive life. Perspective and looking for the lessons and silver linings will. In every situation, those are present. You just have to train yourself to look for them instead of focusing on the negative. If you get stuck, talk to a positive friend or acquaintance about the situation and possible avenues to the positive. Or go within and ask the Universe to help you find it. Or take a walk and step outside of it so you can gain a different perspective.
I know that change isn’t easy. Ask yourself the following question though. Has my current train of thought brought me to where I want to be in life? Only you know the answer to that question. And only you hold the key to positive change in your own life. Change your mind, and then take the steps to do
what needs to be done.
Yes. I have said it before, and I will say it again. Change your mind, change your life.
