Thoughts are the starting point to all that we do, both good and bad, either success or failure. People underestimate the power of thought. Thoughts are things. They are energy. Every thought leaves its trace upon our minds.
What we let into our minds and hold onto governs what our circumstances and our actions are.
Each individual has the seeds of success within him. The seeds of success are the thoughts that they carry around with them. We are all the product of our own thinking and beliefs.
"Every thought seed sown or allowed to fall into the mind, and take root there, produces its own, blossoming sooner or later into act, and bearing its own fruitage of opportunity and circumstances."
James Allen -- "As a Man Thinketh"
Sustained mind control is one of the most difficult endeavors one may undertake but it is also one of the most rewarding.
Create and control your thoughts and you can become what you want to become. A person can live the way they want to live when they learn to think what they want to think.
You are what you think about most of the time. A person who is seeking success and a higher life, strives to keep their mind on the positive and the constructive. We gradually grow into what we are holding in our minds.
"We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. And with our thoughts, we make our world.
If you want to make positive changes in your life, you need to begin with what is in your mind. Our thoughts are the tools with which we build our lives.
The key is to keep your mind on the big picture and the goals leading to it. Think only of what you want, not on what you don't want.
Replace negative thinking, unproductive worrying, and thoughts of fear with positive, imaginative, and constructive thinking.
"Your life is controlled by your thoughts. Your thoughts are controlled by your goals."
A great way to keep your mind on what you want is to carry a goal card with you. The goal card lists the top goals you are working on. Just thinking of your goal, particularly, the end result, keeps your mind productive and under your control.
Keeping your mind busy with productive matters will prevent negative thoughts from creeping in.
"If you fail to control your own mind, you may be sure you will control nothing else."
Mind control is a result of self-discipline and habit. You either control your mind or it controls you."
A controlled, focused mind pays attention to thoughts, words, actions, and plans. A person who lets their mind wander aimlessly around will never achieve lasting success.
Hold your ideal in your mind until it becomes a mental habit. Focus on it to the exclusion of all other things until it becomes a reality.
Slowly but surely, sustained positive thinking creates an irresistible momentum. People begin to notice a change in you. More opportunities come your way. You feel more confident. Gradually your outer environment begins to grow in the likeness of your inner environment.
