My dear Girlfriend, Chere Bork, is a Health and Life Balance Enthusiast! She has graciously given me permission to share a post from her blog dated July 18, 2012. (Check out her website – she is helping people make great, positive changes!)
Since October I have been struggling to find a solution for the cloudy vision in my right eye. It reminds me of a dirty contact that has a protein build up…the problem is that I can’t take my eye out and clean it up. I have tried Eastern and Western medicine and have not found the solution YET. In June I had a new sidewalk put in and I feel the workmanship did not meet my quality standards. Some days I walk on the sidewalk and it triggers a bad mood. I realized I was having stinking thinking. Then, I remember to tell myself, “Chere, you are your thoughts.”
James Allen in the book “As a Man Thinketh” says, “You are today where your thoughts brought you.”
Your thoughts shape your life. And your thoughts start with your self-talk or your words. So if you focus on your words you can change your life.
Pretend you have a dictionary full of words. A frustrating event happens and you pick a word – horrible. When you string a few words together those are thoughts. My boss is horrible. I will never please him.
Your thoughts create a mood or feeling (in the Law of Attraction world this is called a vibe short for the word vibration). I feel frustrated and non-important at work. Your mood or feelings creates results. What I say at work is never important; I don’t share anymore at meetings.
Word → Thought → Vibe (Mood or Feeling) → Results
When you are experiencing “stinking thinking” push the reset button.
Shakespeare says, “Nothing good, nothing bad…it is our thinking that makes it so.”
Your life today is the sum of your thoughts from yesterday. If you have been thinking abundance you’re probably loving your life and getting more abundance. If you feel like your life is hard, examine your thoughts. Your life is easy but maybe your thoughts make it hard. There are at least a quarter of a million English words in the dictionary and you get to pick which word to use.
Remember, what you focus on gets bigger and bolder. Focus on abundance, you get more. When you are experiencing “stinking thinking,” push the reset button.
Pick a new word. And, also appreciate what you have. The optimist looks at the class and says it is half full. The pessimist looks at the glass and says it is half empty. The abundant person is grateful he/she has a glass.
Call to Action: Be aware of your thinking…it only takes one word to change your life.
You have one life to live just imagine if it was one you loved.
