5 Steps to Begin to Empower Your Thoughts
Your thoughts are an astounding FREE tool in your possession which you can use to conquer physical and emotional challenges that you may be faced with in life.
You have the power to choose to take control of your thoughts.
How? Here are 5 thought processes you can use to begin empowering yourself and help transform your thinking.
1. I Can Achieve My Goals
Setting goals and then making excuses not to accomplish them won’t get you anywhere. These excuses are thoughts you have created to hold you back, to keep you from pursuing and accomplishing your goals. This is because just thinking you can’t do something will affect your actions and emotions. If you think for any reason that you can’t, then you won’t do it. It’s as simple as that. So instead of telling yourself that you can’t do something, tell yourself that you can achieve whatever you want to achieve.
2. I Do Have Control in My Life
There will be times in your life where things will happen that you feel are out of your control. Yes, there will be some things that are out of your control. However, if you look closely, you can find many ways you do have control. You have control over your reaction and your response to the situation. Look at what is happening and determine what you can control. You are responsible for what you can control. This can help give you the confidence you need to take control and change any difficult situation you may be faced with.
3. My Past Is Not Who I Am
Many people have things in their past they aren’t so proud of. Perhaps you do too. You probably had no idea how to harness positive thoughts to control your life at that time. This is the great thing about the past, it’s the past. It has no effect on who you are or your current life, as tomorrow is always a new day. If you are struggling with letting go of something which may have happened to you in the past, or if you are letting it control your present, remind yourself that your past is not who you are today.
4. Challenges Are Good
People tend to naturally fear and shy away from things in life which they perceive to be difficult or challenging. Remind yourself that challenges are good. If everything came easily, you would never have any triumphs in life. So next time you find yourself facing a difficult task, tell yourself that challenges are good and make your best attempt to move through it. You may just be surprised by what you can accomplish. And when overcome the challenge, celebrate the success!
5. Mistakes Are Lessons I Can Learn From
Along your journey in life, you will make mistakes. As much as I hate to admit it, it is the human way. We all make mistakes. When you make a mistake, don’t freak out. Remind yourself that mistakes are there as lessons for your future self. Learn from them. Now you now know what not to do next time. By keeping this in mind, and truly learning from your mistakes, they will always be worthwhile and won’t damage the person you are on the road to becoming.
Learning and repeating empowering thoughts can go a long way towards transforming your life and who you are as a person. You can always invent your own empowering thoughts, these 5 are suggestions for getting started and keep you moving forward. Remember, no matter what anyone says, you can achieve your goals, you do have control of your life, your past is not who you are today, there will be challenges and mistakes will happen. Start mastering these power thoughts and add your own. You’ll truly empower your life.
