Beliefs

I developed a post about my core beliefs a few years ago. I have experienced a lot since then, but it is remarkable that so much of what I believed has stood up to the test of time.

These personal beliefs are ever evolving but this is where they stand right now.

Fear or Love

To fear or to love?

You May Disagree
You May Disagree

All situations in life can be broken down into a simple choice. Will you think and act out of fear? Or will you think and act out of love?

I believe that EVERYTHING you think will make a difference in your life.  I believe this because of a lifetime of experience and entertaining the wrong types of thoughts.  Basically, I lived much of my life under the influence of fear but have chosen to make a change and look at things with thoughts of love.

My Worst Enemy

My own worst enemyMy own worst enemy is almost always in my own mind, that voice that tells me I can’t, shouldn’t or couldn’t possibly achieve what I would like to do. This is an outdated survival mechanism left over from childhood it once served a purpose but now only limits my potential.  As I grow older the voice of criticism that I hear and entertain works to destroy my confidence, lower my self-esteem and significantly limit what I am capable of achieving.  it is time to Get rid of that voice or at the least, pay very little attention to what it says. Here are a few of my favorite methods for limiting or eliminating my own worst enemy and learning to listen to positive  self-talk.

Positive Mindset

Creating positive mindsetThings To Consider when Creating a Positive Mindset

Each and every word we use has an energy attached to it and impacts the lives of all that hear it. Too often we use our words without a consideration of how they will affect others. Words are the building blocks used to build our mindset either positive or negative. Our words radiate around and within us long after they are spoken. It is important that all people are vigilant in noticing the charge of our words and the thoughts behind them. Focusing on speaking positively will allow us to create a more positive mindset. This will make life a happier and more enjoyable experience.

Thinking

Positive thoughtsThinking has been a theme for me continually. I seem to have a lot of thoughts, and I wonder what they actually mean. Are my thoughts designed to guide me? Or are they here to distract me? Sometimes I could believe either scenario. Do thoughts actually provide any concrete information or do they just arrive to distract you from accomplishment? Positive thoughts always contribute to your greater good.

Thoughtful Choices

Positive thinkingThe Happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts. ~ Marcus Aurelius

Penny for your thoughts? They are worth much more than that. Each moment we are inundated with a million thoughts from our mind. It is difficult to shut off the flowing river of mental messages that we are exclusively experiencing in our head. We are capable of having all types of thoughts, positive, negative and neutral and the ones that we decide to focus on will create your reality and your feelings about it. Positive thinking will lead to positive results in life.

A Positive Mind

You Can’t Have a Positive Life with a Negative Mind – Unknown

positive-life-negative-mindOur thoughts are the most important thing that we create.  Every day there is a non-stop production of thought coming from our minds and we are subject to the powers of the ones we pay attention to.  In life, if we are truly looking to live in a positive manner than we have to learn to pay attention to the positive thoughts and let all the negative ones go.

Avoid the Negative Noise

Keeping it All Positive

challengesNo matter how confident and successful you are, life has a way of throwing challenges your way that will push you to make decisions every day which redefines who you are.  In everyone’s life, there are going to be events that force a constant expression of this experience.

In the end, even after facing a challenge I like to think that we have become a more galvanized feeling of who we are, and we hold on to beliefs with a more critical and realistic passion.
