Thoughts have given rise to our whole world. As the saying goes, “everything is created twice, once in the mind and then once in the world”. We are the architects of our thoughts and therefore the architects of our world. We can build up or tear down our entire world just by thinking. When we are grateful and focused on the positive things in our lives, our world is good. When we are fearful and focused on the negative things in our lives, our world is not so good. So much of our lives is out of our control but the one thing we can control is our thoughts. And that is everything. Become your own ‘thought police’ and catch negative and fearful thoughts and stop them before they catch hold and grow. Ask yourself “why?”. Why is this thought dominating my mind, is it a valid concern or warning, does it help me and move me forward, does it keep me on track, does it make me stronger or weaker? We want our minds filled with healthy, positive thoughts. Thoughts animate our lives, make yours count.
