Change Your Thoughts And You Can Change Your Life

Your Life is a reflection of your thoughts. If you can change your thoughts you can change your life ~Brian Tracy~

When you follow the same recipe, you get the same results.

The same goes for changing your attitude or behaviour will change your life. However, changing one’s attitude or behaviour can be pretty challenging.

Look at how hard it is to lose weight or to stop smoking….yet both have simple solutions. 

If you look at what you eat and eat less and start to do some exercise you will certainly be able to lose the weight and the same goes for smoking….if you stop putting the cigarette in your mouth.

While behaviour is hard to change but with sheer willpower, it can be achieved with a change in perspective.

You might find it impossible to lose weight under normal circumstances.

But suppose your child needed a kidney transplant to live, and you were the only possible donor. However, the doctor won’t do the operation until you lose 50 pounds. Do you think you could do it?

Not only could you do it, but you’d do it easily. A simple change in perspective makes all the difference.

You don’t need to be forced to make changes within you. You can choose to change your beliefs and perspective to something more useful.

Imagine what you could accomplish by making a few inner changes!

Ideas like these could help you to change your life:

1. External changes in your life are the result of changes in behaviour.

Changes in behaviour are most often the result of changes within you. When your thoughts and beliefs change, your behaviour is also altered.

Suppose you have decided that helping others was important. You might start volunteering.

While you’re volunteering, you meet new people and learn new things.

You make new friends and perhaps date someone you never would have met otherwise. You might even get a job.

All of this began with making contribution a priority.

2. Examine your current beliefs.
Are you certain that the things that you believe are true?

Are you aggressively and enthusiastically pursuing your goals each day? Everyone has limiting beliefs. What are yours?

Beliefs are like your software. If your software is faulty, you aren’t operating efficiently.

Try to examine each belief you have and determine if it is serving you or holding you back.

Look at your behaviour for clues regarding your inner world.

What do you believe to be behaving the way that you do?

3. When you change your thoughts and beliefs, your habits will change, too.
When the things you do each day are altered, your results are altered.

4. Envision the life you want to lead.
When all you can think about is your current life, you get more of the same.

Spend some time each day imagining yourself in your new life. When this type of life begins to feel normal to you, you’ll start to make outer changes in your life, too.

The first step is making the big decision about the type of life you’d prefer. Most people never make definitive decisions.

Vagueness won’t work. You need to be specific.

5. Negative thoughts bring poor results.
If you spend most of your time thinking worrisome thoughts, how can you have a positive life experience?

When you find yourself having a negative thought, change it to something positive.

If you want to experience outer changes in your life, start by making inner changes.

Changes within you can be challenging, but they are under your control. As your inner world changes, your behaviour will change.

As your behaviour changes, your outer world will change, too.

Try it!  You’ll enjoy the results.

I am going to share my personal journey here….
My entire work life has been in the corporate environment and a year ago I returned home to look after my aged mother. This cause me to do some deep soul searching on what really matter most.

I decided to take a break and did some soul searching on my purpose and where my next path would take me.

I knew the digital economy is the new way to earn an income while working from home.  I realised that we are now living in the digital economy,  so I decided to invest in myself by learning a new skill.

Learning a new skill requires determination and  commitment and I can tell you now that is the best investment I have made.

Now I can work in the comfort of my own home and I do not have to wake up to an alarm clock, get dressed and commute through the horrendous traffic to and from work. It is so flexible on my time!

I need to tell you that I did face challenges while learning a new skill. I questioned myself if I could do this, but with determination, I soldiered on and quashed my doubts on starting my own online business.

You don’t need to be forced to make changes within you. You can choose to change your beliefs and perspective to something more useful.

Imagine what you could accomplish by making a few inner changes!

This would not have been possible had I not made the change…If it changed my life, it can change yours!

You need to figure out your why! and don’t let life pass you by.
