How choosing the right thoughts can change your life

“If you can change your thinking, you can change your life” ~ Louise Hay

The great thing is that we can all change the way we think. Sometimes we get disheartened because we think our situation is out of our control but no matter what the scenario we all have control over the way think and feel. So this is the starting point, let’s change the way we think and feel to change our lives.

The first step is awareness – Becoming aware that you do have the abililty to change your thoughts to change your life.

Then it is to state what your desire is, i.e. what you want to achieve, whether it is to change something or to gain / create something new in your life.

You must then really feel that the new desires / intentions/ thoughts/ wishes that you have really can become a reality (some liken it to having a child like faith).

So what tools can you use to make this a reality?

A useful starting point is positive affirmations.

A positive affirmation is a statement said in the present tense about where you want yourself and / or your situation to be.

This can be said (and repeated) in the mirror, to yourself or written down.

Some examples of positive affirmations are:

  • I am beautiful and I love myself just the way I am.
  • I am in the process of becoming debt free

Whenever you feel anxiety or when negative thoughts come into your head just reach for a better feeling thought and affirm it to yourself.

It may feel awkward at first or even fake but as you continue to do it, it will make you feel better then your belief in what you are saying will power change in your life.
