In the 1980s one of the most talked about maxims was that you are what you eat, the same is true for the saying that you are the sum total of the thoughts you think. Are you frustrated with certain areas of your life and want to make a change? You can change it as soon as you decide to change your thinking.
To quote the late American author and one of the founders of the self-help movement Louise L Hay: “Every thought we think is creating our future". And she is absolutely right. It is vital that we understand that what we spend our moments to moments thinking about sets the course of our lives. It's the Law of Cause and Effect, What we think about gets magnified and becomes attracted to us.
It's vital to understand if you are unhappy with your current circumstances that you have the power to change them at any given moment and at any time you choose, simply by changing your thoughts. We all have the ability and the responsibility to make choices that empowers us beginning today.
The problem is that most people will curse the effect, but continue to nourish the cause. The problem isn't that they're a victim, but the culprit and the idea of change makes us uncomfortable and fearful.
So, how do you go about changing any area of your life that you want to change? By making a decision. And by compiling a list of the negative things that you habitually say about your disagreeable circumstance. If you're having problem identifying the disempowering words you are constantly using, especially in describing yourself and the situation you wish to change, ask someone who you trust and be open minded on receipt.
Once you have written your list, make another one that contains positive, faith filled sentences that are directly opposite. It doesn't matter if these new sentences are true or not. Your subconscious mind does not distinguish true or false, it only accepts the information given to it.
The final step is using affirmations to reprogram your mind with the new thought pattern. Read your written affirmations twice daily and as you move through your day out loud if you can. It's important that you affirm in the morning and last thing at night before going to sleep as this is when our subconscious is more susceptible in taking in the new commands.
Remember, the Law of Cause and Effect says; ' Think repetitive thoughts, reap their physical manifestations'. If you are feeling frustrated with an area of your life and want to make a change, you can change it as soon as you make a decision to begin by choosing thoughts that empowers you. The choice is always yours to make.
