Author Ben Hardy wrote in Medium that, “In 2005, the National Science Foundation published an article showing that the average person has between 12,000 and 60,000 thoughts per day. Of those, 80% are negative and 95% are exactly the same repetitive thoughts as the day before.”
Eighty per cent are negative. And ninety-five per cent are the same as yesterday.
What are we thinking about? There is who we are and then there is who we think we are. We often convince ourselves that we are better off with the devil we know. The job we aren’t crazy about. The relationship that stunts us. The path of least resistance.
We may feel lonely or tired or uninspired or helpless.
But we are very powerful. Our mind can change everything. Our thoughts are the fuel.
We can tell ourselves there is nobody like us and that is our power. That we have the grit to get it done. That we can hunt for the no thank yous that will lead to the yes please.
Let’s change those statistics. Let’s increase the positive thoughts. What you focus on gets bigger. You become what you believe.
You are strong and smart and creative and interesting and valued.
Who would you like to be today? It’s all in your mind.
