I struggle with my thoughts constantly. A lot of that has to do with my ongoing battle with anxiety and depression. It’s some thing I have to work on every day no matter how much I mess up. I figure the more aware I am of my thoughts, it shows I’m making progress. I’ve also been working on a lot of self development lately and came across some really inspiring light -bulb moments recently. A lot of times we just think our efforts, talents, education, opportunities or upbringing is what eventually steers us toward our accomplishments in life. But recently I realized that all of that can actually mean nothing without some sort of mindset attached to it. We often hear people talk about the question “what is your why” why do you do the things you do? For what and for whom? Asking yourself this should eventually lead you to your purpose. At least that’s the idea. But what if your current circumstances are not where it is that you want to be? Maybe you’ve accomplished a lot, maybe you haven’t but how you choose to make the most out of what you have in life, exactly where you are at, is what matters and that all starts in your mind. And what you really truly actually believe about yourself is so conducive to this. Because it all starts with you and that belief branches out toward those around you. Living each day with intention matters. Life is truly about serving others. Are there different things you need to start telling yourself today? Are there negative thoughts you need to no longer defeat you? Start today with changing your mindset, and continue to make it a priority in your life and watch how you grow in ways you didn’t think you could. What are thoughts you want to get rid of? Can you replace them with positive ones? What are some lies you have believed about yourself, your circumstances that need to change? If you’d like to share below please do!
