The Law of Attraction states that what you attract in life is determined by what you think. Your thoughts determine your actions which ultimately leads to your destiny.
Recently we talked about How the Law of Attraction can Work Against YOU because your mind has tendencies to think negative thoughts. And these negative thoughts hold captive your unlimited potential and deprive you of the success you deserve.
How can you stay positive all the time even when bad things happen?
How do you prevent these negative thoughts from coming into your minds?
How do you get rid of existing negative thoughts?
Solutions to Protecting Your Mind
Fortunately there are many solutions.
To control our minds and prevent negative thoughts from happening, you can:
– hang around with positive people
– read a motivating book
– listen to a motivating audio
– stay away from negative people
– stop reading the news (which is always negative)
The Easiest Solution
The great news is that there is even an easier solution!
The best way to stay positive and protect your mind from debilitating negative thoughts is with GRATITUDE.
Take a few moments each day to be grateful for what you have.
My normal routine is I start and end my days with a prayer of gratitude and mentally list out 5 things that I am grateful for.
Do your best to come up with 5 different things everyday. If you can’t come up with new things each day, then you can simply be grateful for the same 5 things. Sometimes I have 5 different things and sometimes I have the same 2 – 3.
If I am having a rough day, I have learned to take a mental “time out” and just close my eyes for 30 seconds and repeat the 5 things that I am grateful for. Just by doing that, it can totally change my attitude and attitude change always leads to better results and transforms a bad day into a good day.
It is as Easy as This
Just take 30 – 60 seconds and come up with 5 things you are grateful for. I will lead by example and share with you first.
At this moment I am grateful for:
1) Having the time to share this important exercise of gratitude with you
2) Being able to have the resources to share with you (computer, internet)
3) My wife for her support and for being the world’s best mom
4) My healthy and adorable son, Ethan
5) My “best friend”, Obi
Notice that my 5 things are in random order and were the first 5 things that came to my mind while I am writing this. That is the secret to this exercise. Just mentally let go and put down whatever comes to your mind.
What are YOU Grateful for?
Take a minute to think and be thankful for 5 things. Do it now.
Make a commitment to do this at least 2 times a day… it will do wonders for you! After you do this a few days, let me know how it has changed your life!
