3 THOUGHTS YOU NEED TO FILL YOUR MIND WITH EVERYDAY
Every human being has an inner dialogue that is constantly reflecting on different types of thoughts, positive and negative everyday.
Many of us allow that inner dialogue to run on autopilot without actively monitoring or influencing the thoughts that pass through our minds. But allowing it to run on autopilot is exactly the opposite of how you want to run your life.
The following are four affirmations that will not only improve the quality of your thoughts, but will also send you on your way to creating that happy and successful future you know you deserve. Here’s how to manage your internal dialogue:
1. “Today I Promise To Do Whatever It Takes for My Happiness, Success, and Future”
The only person who can make you happy—the only one who truly knows what your life is missing and can make your happiness a reality—is you.
Think back to a time in your life when you were depressed, stressed, feeling down-and-out, and dismayed. Who busted you out of your sadness? At that time, who was it that took the necessary steps—like asking for help, exercising, meditating, volunteering, or taking some time off from work—to get yourself out of that slump? It was you! Right?
The only person who can make you happy is YOU.
And on the flip-side of that, the only person who has the power to make you successful is also YOU. The only human being in the whole universe can transform your visions, your plans, your goals, your ideas, and your dreams into reality is you.
You are unique. There is only one you. So if you want to make your dreams come true, it’s on you to put in the hard work, discipline, man-hours, and dedication to accomplish your goals.
2. “Today I am Grateful For Who I Am, What I Have, Where I’ve Been And Where I’m Going.”
There is no emotion more powerful, happiness-boosting, or essential for success than gratitude. Optimistic mentalities, feelings of pure joy, world-changing careers, and healthy relationships cannot exist without a foundation of an attitude of gratitude and appreciation.
Practicing gratitude is a powerful and proven way to create more positive outcomes in your life.
3. “The Opinions Of Others Will Not Sway Me. I Will Live My Dreams.”
We live on a planet populated by over seven billion human beings: seven billion opinions, seven billion beliefs, seven billion ideas, seven billion mindsets, and seven billion agendas.
So no matter how strong-willed, opinionated, or independent you are, it is impossible to live out your life or make progress on your dreams without being affected in some way by the opinions of others.
As you write down your goals, set deadlines for your dreams, and put in the work necessary to make your visions real, there will most definitely be others who don’t think your dreams hold value.
There will most certainly be people who not only doubt your ability to be successful, but also question whether your goals are worth chasing in the first place. Some of your closest family and friends may even pull you aside to talk you out of spending any more time going after your dream.
With so many different voices trying to convince you that their way is right and your way is wrong, it is super important for you to dedicate some time out of your day to repeating this affirmation: “The opinions of others will not sway me. I will live my dreams.”
