Getting What You Want Out of Life Starts on the Inside
What’s the inner dialogue you have running? Does it lift your hopes and dreams, or deep down are you sabotaging yourself with negativity and doubt? There’s a famous quote by Lao Tzu that says, “Watch your thoughts, they become your words; watch your words, they become your actions; watch your actions, they become your habits; watch your habits, they become your character; watch your character, it becomes your destiny.” Inspired by the guest on our last episode; “Can Your Thoughts Really Change Your Life? (w/Coach and Author Christine Meyer)”, we set out to implement some of her suggestions to see the impact thoughts had on our lives. Spoiler Alert, it was huge.
In this bonus episode, some of the things we dive into are: how shifting thoughts and attitudes when things don’t go our way can affect not only our mood but our outcomes; how being willing to experiment with even the smallest changes can lead to huge results and how focusing on someone else’s issues sometimes keeps us stuck in our own.
Circumstances and other people are not within our control, but we can certainly affect ourselves, others and our circumstances by the way we perceive and ultimately deal with things. That doesn’t mean we’re on our own. If we ask, God is there to guide us, and some situations will require professional help. Are you ready to take responsibility for your life change?
