"Your mind is a powerful thing. When you start to fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change."

Listen Now:

The quote,“Your mind is a powerful thing. When you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change”, relates to perspective. Our minds rationalize things a certain way that fit the schemes and categories that we are accustomed to. They have been developed over the course of our lives and are rigid and very different from other minds. But the inherent part to perspective is that it is entirely subjective, and if that’s the case, then why can’t we induce this sense of conviction?  We hold strongly onto the perspective we have, which is a good thing because it’s important to trust your instincts, but what If we could deliberately choose what we wanted to believe.

A great example of this is positivity! Take this scenario. You set aside $10 for lunch, then realize that you left $5 at home. How do you interpret it? Are you bummed that you can’t order the sandwich and the smoothie, or are you grateful that you don’t have to worry about where your next meal is coming from?

Sure, that’s an extreme example, but do you get the concept?  If we choose a certain, positive perspective, our brain is powerful enough to rationalize that into its reality.  When your brain begins defaulting to seeing things in a positive light, your life most definitely will start to change.
