I am currently reading The Magic of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz. In it he writes, “Your mind is a ‘thought factory.’ It’s a busy factory, producing countless thoughts in one day.” He said that you make deposits in your thought bank constantly and these thoughts decide what your day will be like and if you will be successful.
You become what you believe.
Schwartz writes, “When you believe something is impossible, your mind goes to work for you to prove why. But when you believe, really believe, something can be done, your mind goes to work for you and helps you find the ways to do it.”
So the more you fill your thought bank with big, positive ideas, the more positive, and successful, you will be.
When something goes wrong, do you see it as the end of the world or as a lesson? What is the story in your head?
How many times have we reached a goal and thought to ourselves, “How did I get here?” You got there by putting one step in front of the other, believing that you could do it, and taking action on small goals that led you to the top of the mountain.
How can you add some magic to your thinking today by reminding yourself how amazing you truly are?
