Every life is a tapestry of choices and the quality of our life depends, to a surprising extent, on the quality of the choices you make.
From the moment you wake up in the morning until the moment you nod off asleep at night you make lots of decisions about what to do, decisions about the words you speak and decisions about the thoughts you choose to think.
That brings me to the crux of what I wish to share with you, something I became aware of once again 3 weeks ago. I became aware that I was experiencing a lack of energy and joie de vivre.
Preparing for a Neuro Coaching Training for Teachers in Heilbron I had an “aha! moment” and asked myself “What are you thinking about” because what you think about you bring about!
Did you know… that what you think about you bring about?
If you are not experiencing the breathtaking, joyful moments, the success you desire
then I invite to think about what you are thinking about.
What is the main theme and focus of your thoughts right now?
Is it inspiration or desperation thinking?
Thinking about what is wrong and missing or what you don’t want in your life?
The focus of your attention will grow.
What you focus on becomes your reality, your life.
So what if………. You focus on what inspires you,
what you would love more of,
your big audacious dreams,
focus on what you love,
what you would do every day without being paid for?
What could the result if your mind is full of who you would love to be,
Who you have the potential of becoming,
Who you are committed to being and the
impact you could have on your world?
What if you choose to emulate your Hero, who would you be?
What would joy, fulfillment and success feel like for you?
Whatever is lovely, good and heavenly for you………
I invite you to focus your thoughts on the things that bring you joy, love, inspiration and growth.
Become aware that you are the creator your own reality.
If you find your mind has wandered to things that drain you, bring you down…. Shift the focus of your attention to what energizes you and lifts you up:
Speak your truth, be authentic
A cup of herbal tea
A walk during lunch break in a patch of nature, under the green trees, listening to the birds chirping
An inspiring poem
Bake a beautiful cake
A song that lilts your heart
A phone call to a friend
Book that holiday you have been dreaming of
Take that course you have been procrastinating on taking
A walk in a book store
“Each day, I look for a kernel of excitement”. – Barbara Jordan
“Every day should be cause for a celebration. By celebrating the gift of life, you protect your heart from the dangers of pessimism, regret, hopelessness and bitterness.” AR Bernard
Choose your thoughts wisely
Thoughts are seeds….
“We plant seeds that will flower as results in our lives, so best to remove the weeds of anger, avarice envy and doubt, that peace and abundance may manifest for all. – Dorothy Day
Choose thoughts that will empower you, inspire you, bring you peace, courage, whatever you desire to be or create. Focus your attention on these thoughts.
It’s a choice, skill and habit that will empower you to create your own happiness.
