Self Improvement: Change the Input, Change the Output

Benjamin Franklin once said:

“If you think you can, you are right. If you think you can’t, you are right.”

We have heard many times that we are what we eat, but we also are what we think. By keeping your attitudes positively directed, it becomes easier to succeed. This success can be in self-healing, in professional development, in spiritual pursuits, in love, and in all other areas of your life.

You may be well-served by examining your thoughts to see if you have been giving yourself negative messages. Consider how many of current thoughts are holding you back or limiting your ability to create positive change or to achieve a goal. As you come to face any of your own limiting or negative thoughts, you automatically de-hypnotize yourself from such thoughts. Once you have de-hypnotized yourself, redirecting your thoughts positively is a much easier task.

This same process of redirecting your thoughts can be helpful in many areas of your life. You really can decide to have an improved mindset in every avenue you take in life. As you do so, your life becomes more rewarding, joyful, and fun. For example, if you dislike housework, you might find it more enjoyable if you play your favorite music loud while doing it and open up the curtains and let the light into your home.

If you have to be in a situation with a person who is unpleasant, you can decide in advance that the more unpleasant they behave, the happier and more loving you will become.

If you have to take a long drive, you can decide to see the beauty around you, because whenever you look for beauty you can find some. You can remember happy times as you drive and the time will become healing, pleasant, and joyful.

There are all kinds of ways to improve your state of mind and your enjoyment of life. Your attitude is based on choice and you can choose to find more pleasure in your life by having an attitude that truly serves the situation you are in.

Today you can open all the window shades and let the light pour in. If someone tries to block your light, smile at them and say something nice realizing that your light will become their light and it will help you both to glow.

Happiness is contagious. Today you can choose to be very happy. There is always something to be happy about. You can focus on the positive and as you do energy that is shining and glowing will radiate from you like the brightest beacon. Today you can turn all your own lights on and let a shower of gratitude sweep through and around you. It is always a choice. You can chose well, be well, and live well.
