“If you correct your mind, the rest of your life will fall into place.” –Lao Tzu, Chinese philosopher
Imagine that you are on the highway in your vehicle right now… and you have been driving for hours to see your favorite relative or friend that you haven’t seen in a year or two.
All of a sudden it hits smack in your thoughts as you are in the middle of your transit… “Oh snap! I’ve been driving in the wrong direction for the past 4 hours. I’m hundreds of miles off course. Oh s&@^!”
Now, hopefully being the positive minded person that I know that you are… you wouldn’t cuss 😉 – but obviously you would probably feel very tense and aggravated at the fact that you traveled ALL that way for nothing and have wasted all that valuable time.
In a situation like that… what would you do?
For most people, the most common-sense thing & the best solution would be to get a map… find the right travel route… change directions… and proceed on to your destination.
…and I’m sure you will agree with me that it would not be wise to continue going on in the wrong direction.
The same is true with our thinking.
If you have been thinking negative, hateful thoughts of defeat, discouragement and fear all your life… then you are on the wrong path.
If you want to become successful in life and live your best life ever… you have got to get out of a negative mind, correct your path and start thinking right!
Right thoughts include:
- positive thoughts
- feelings of gratitude
- feelings of love for other people
- being bold
- feelings of empowerment.
The good thing about our minds is that no matter how long we have been “traveling in life” with the wrong mindset… we can ALWAYS do an about face and correct our paths… and start thinking right!
Because when you think right… everything that you hold near and dear in life (relationships, finances, your health & well being) will always fall into the right place.
Have a GREAT day!
