You yourself must believe you can affect your life for the better. You yourself must believe you can guide your thoughts. You yourself must believe your thoughts can affect your body and its healing and developing functions.
At the same time you are, in the end, the only one who can help you gain a better life. You are also the only one who can judge what your alternative life means to you, that is, whether it is worth the fight to achieve it!
When you ask yourself about your future, I urge you to watch out for the following:
Are you headed, with the attitude you have chosen, toward a future in which you are a winner? If the answer is “No,” think again!
Is your success contingent on the actions of others or the occurrence of special circumstances? I mean by this, are you letting your success depend on persons or events over which you have no control? If your answer is “Yes,” think again!
It is just as clear in this case as in all others that a person must invest before he or she can expect to earn a profit or reward. Nothing is ever gained by just sitting passively and waiting.
For example, have you ever heard of an athlete who first received a medal and then competed in a contest as thanks for the medal? Of course not! And that also applies to you!
Our thoughts are like seeds sown upon the earth to grow. That being so, if you sow thistles it will be thistles you reap, right? Anyone who sows thistles yet expects to harvest sunflowers is deceiving himself. The only way you are able to harvest sunflowers is to sow sunflower seeds.
It is the pictures of your own story that you carry around with you that add up to the concept you have of yourself, your self-image.
Among our most important thoughts are those about where we are headed. These create the pictures we have of our future, our goal-pictures. Once these pictures have taken shape, we are compelled toward them by a highly precise mechanism.
Examples of positive pictures/ideas:
Believe you are going to feel better, and you shall.
Believe you can do it, you’ll be right.
Believe you get the resources/energy needed to do it, you’ll be right.
Examples of negative pictures/ideas:
Believe you are going to feel worse, and you shall.
Believe you cannot do it, you’ll be right.
Believe you don’t get the resources/energy needed to do it, you’ll be right.
There is one special condition you have to remember that is valid for all the positive choices and that is:
You have to believe to 100 %. And no less! Because in all other cases your own brain will fool yourself as it is programmed mainly to make you survive. As a consequence it want stability and hates changes.
