Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life
A friend once resigned from her job to open her own pharmacy, it has always been her dream.
Starting out was quite challenging but she never gave up.
Several years later, she opened the second pharmacy and more recently she opened the third.
If you ask my friend why she succeeded in business she will tell you:
- She believed she could be successful in business.
- She persevered when everything around her was trying to prove her wrong.
As a man thinks in his heart so is he- The Bible
Thinking about her journey, I could not help reflecting on the power of thoughts
If you think you can do a thing or you think you can’t, you are right”- Henry Ford.
Have you ever set out to carry out a task you were sure you could accomplish but turned out to be more rigorous than expected?
Did you give up or persevere?
If you persevered, why do you think you persevered?
Could it be because you believed you can get the job done?
Your thoughts are powerful and so are words.
Interestingly there is a connection between the two.
Whatever you believe will shape your world, if you believe that you will be successful you will be.
Your words flow from the abundance of thoughts in your heart.
Once you start thinking about something, it is just a matter of time you will start talking about it.
Think little goals and expect little achievements. Think big goals and win big success.-David Joseph Schwartz
Have you ever had anyone in your life that believes in you and speaks positively into your life?
The person might say something like you are an amazing speaker, at first you might dismiss the comment.
If this compliment is repeated a few more times you start believing it. Your confidence gets a good boost, and you start talking about it.
If you carefully think back you will realize there are several instances when this principle has played out for you .
The way you think, affects what you say, how you act and ultimately shapes your reality.
If you do not like the way things are with you change the way you think. Free yourself to think and think big
You have to think anyway so why not think big? — Donald Trump
Action Plan: Start paying attention to how you think and what you spend time thinking about. Carefully guard your thoughts and start thinking big.
