What do you think about? Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "You become what you think about all day long." What is the main thing your thought rests upon most of the time?
Whatever you think about is what you attract into your life. If you are a positive, happy person, you attract more good into your life. If you are negative, always seeing problems rather than opportunities, and look at what's wrong instead of what's right, you will have more of that in your life. Whether it's good or bad, whatever you are thinking is what you will attract.
Now, I know you don't purposefully want to attract the bad, but recognize that it is your thinking about something that is doing just that. Therefore, if you want different results than you're experiencing right now in your life, examine your thinking.
The good news is, your thinking is your most powerful tool. If you are unhappy with a job situation, you can change it with your thinking. If you feel you're drowning in debt and are consumed with bills, your thinking can turn things around. If you are thinking about debt, you only attract more of it. When you think abundance and look at what you have to be grateful for, you will attract more of that into your life. Don't see problems, see opportunities. Every challenge is an opportunity for growth because when you get through it or overcome it, you have grown and become a better you.
To change your thinking, always look for the good in every situation, every challenge, everything that at first might not seem good. Instead of getting down when something doesn't go the way you want, ask, "what else can I do instead?", "what is the good here, what can I learn?" If you look for it you will find it.
"Man, alone, has the power to transform his thoughts into physical reality; man, alone, can dream and make his dreams come true." – Napoleon Hill
Exercise your thinking faculty. The power of your thinking mind cannot be underestimated. With it you can create and live the life you only thought was just a dream.
Henry Ford said, "If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right." That is a true statement about the power that your thinking has over your life. This is seen in goals and feats that are achieved all the time.
One must have belief that they can do something or it won't happen. It's not a hope or a wish, it's a true conviction, an unshakable belief that you are going to do it. A belief so strong that no matter what anyone else may think or say, no matter the opinions nay-sayers may share, no matter what may seem to be a lack of resources or know-how, it WILL BE DONE! When you have a belief that strong and you are focused on the end result, you are persistently thinking and knowing that you will do it. It is then that the resources will show up, the next step will be revealed, the next idea will come to you, all when you need it. All it takes is belief and faith, faith to start, conviction and belief with no doubt that you will succeed.
Go accomplish whatever you want with that same belief and know that you can!
Here is a great poem, author unknown, that really illustrates the power of thought and belief...
If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you’d like to win, but think you can’t,
It’s almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost.
For out of the world we find
Success begins with a fellows will.
It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you’re outclassed, you are.
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster person.
But sooner or later the person who wins
Is the one who thinks they can.
