Do you believe that changing your thinking can change everything and anything? Do you believe that your thinking has nothing to do with what things are happening around you? These days, it’s almost impossible to get away from the Law of Attraction talk. Lots of people talk about it, have websites about it, make videos about it, etc.. It is not, however, a brand new concept. Our Daily Quote is from Marcus Aurelius, the Roman emperor, who was born on March 8, 161. That is not a typo. He really was born in 161. He said the following:
Your life is what your thoughts make it.
As you can see, Marcus Aurelius believed in the Law of Attraction too. He knew that changing your thinking could change your life. He knew way back in the year 190 that what we think is what we get. He knew that setting your goals, and seeing them as accomplished, would get you to where you wanted to be.
For today, think about the things you complain about the most. Where could these things shift by changing your thinking? I’ll give you a couple examples. If you’re mad at a friend for something that friend said, you can choose to walk around carrying that anger and hurt or you can choose to think something different. You can shift “Wow, I can’t believe she would do something like that to me” to “She’s not like that normally. Something happened or I am misunderstanding her. I should probably ask her what’s up.” By changing your thinking just that little bit, you can see how much better the second statement feels than the first statement. If you feel like you are never going to get ahead financially, you think things like “I’m never going to get a break. I hope they still have Pauper’s Prisons.”, etc.. Changing your thinking from that thought to something like, “I still have a roof over my head. I have food in my belly. I’m healthy. I have fresh water. I’m not doing so bad!” feels SO much better.
Let’s work on changing our thinking from what we fear and do not want to what we dream about and what we do want. We have nothing to lose but what we do not want!
