Don’t let initial upset discourage you

thoughts - einstein

Your thoughts control your life, so control your thoughts.

Sometimes, especially when you first set out on this path of changing your thoughts and creating the life you’ve only dreamed of, it’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that someone or something is out to get you. It often seems that, just as you’ve gotten your mind set right and you’re off to a good start, the rug is jerked right out from under you and you land flat on your face. Here are a couple of points to help you in those times.

First off, changing those deeply ingrained thought patterns isn’t an overnight job. It takes dedication and a real desire for your objective, and a little time. And the more drastic the change, the more firmly entrenched are thoughts that need to be changed. You don’t expect one trip to the gym to get your body into the shape you want it to be, and in the same way you can’t expect one day of “positive thinking” to suddenly make your life everything you’ve always wanted it to be. Understand that, like anything else, this is a process and you must stick with it. The first changes you will notice will be within your own mind; your feelings and thoughts will begin to change. Accept this as evidence you are on the right track and stick with it. You will get there. Don’t resist the obstacles that pop up. Give them only enough of your attention to be aware of them and see how to move around them. Then give them no more thought. Keep your eyes on your prize, do your work to the best of your ability, and know that your goal is already yours.

The second thing to remember is that there is NO outside force working against you. Apparent obstacles are simply residue of your old thought patterns. You are working with the most powerful force in the universe. God is inside you, part of you, and it is your share of His creative force that you are using to bring into manifestation the things you desire. These things already exist, you are simply lining events and circumstances up to bring them into your hands. Don’t fret, don’t fight, and don’t fear that there is anything working against you. Fear, worry and doubt are your only opponents, and they originate and exist only in your mind, and only to the extent that you allow them.

Set your goal, embrace it, love it, and know that it is yours for the taking. Do not resist or react, simply respond and move on. Give no thought to the physical manifestations of your old thoughts that surround you now, but live from the vision of your desires fulfilled. You probably won’t get it perfectly the first day, but if you commit to it, you will see fruit before you realize it.

    Amen! A sure way to remain defeated is by believing “outside forces” compel us. Great word of wisdom and ecouragement.
