You Hold the Power
We are born creators. Yep, that’s right – you have the power to create. The difference between knowing this fact in theory and personally experiencing and witnessing this power at work in my own life makes me wonder why many of us weren’t told this in layman’s terms? If you were lucky, you were blessed to have parents or people in your life that told you that you could be anything you wanted to be. It is, as we all know, the go-to blanket statement that you say to your child without having to break down why that statement is actually true.
Maybe we should take into consideration that depending on the era in which some of our parents grew up, they simply didn’t have access to information that supported this fact and were not exposed to something or someone that could open their minds and change their perception to one that could see the possibilities that were available. Knowing that socioeconomic status may have played a role in the creation of the mindsets of those who were less fortunate, I begin to think about those rare instances of the ones that “made it out”. Why did they make it to levels that the majority of people only dream about if, in fact, they came from the same background as those who remain stuck?
The difference between the one who stays stuck and the one who breaks through barriers, reaching unimaginable heights in their life comes down to their mindset and their willingness to act on the thoughts of the possibilities of what they desire to be true for their life. The difference is in the belief that despite any adversity, they can actually accomplish what they set their mind to.
You will become what you think about all day long. If you think about what you lack all day, you will continue to experience lack, but if you think about how blessed you are to have what you already possess, you will, indeed, experience even more blessings.
Becoming Who You Think
The reason we become what we think about is that our minds are powerful, even to the point of having the ability to create our realities. You were wonderfully made by God and in His image. Imagine believing that even you have the same power to create a better reality, a better life, and the kind of life you truly want to live. Imagine the possibilities available to you and me by simply expanding our minds to the possibilities available to us and then having the guts to act on those thoughts. If you can imagine, think, and act on what you lack and as a result, you experience even more lack, then the same holds true for abundance. If you imagine, think, and act as if you already live a life of abundance, even if you are not quite there yet, it must become true for you.
Think Your Thoughts Into Reality
Whatever you desire and focus on, you will eventually do because the body goes where your thoughts flow so watch your thoughts! Think about what you want to be true for your life. Think and concentrate on who you want to become in the process of obtaining that which you only dream about. Begin to act on those thoughts and then pay attention to how your world and your reality will begin to transform over time. Whether you choose to consciously make decisions that serve your life better, or choose to unconsciously go through life allowing your thoughts and emotions to control you, who you become and the kind of life you live will be in direct relation and the result of the thoughts that you consistently think. It is amazing that we have the ability to literally think our thoughts into existence when we focus on the same thoughts consistently.
What kind of life do you want to live? Are you spending time and energy thinking about what you lack, or are you focusing on what you already have to be grateful for? Once you become more conscious of the thoughts you think, and in doing so, recognize that your self-talk and thoughts are not aligning with your desires, you can then decide to choose to think different thoughts. We can’t control all the thoughts that enter our minds, but we can choose to accept or reject those thoughts. If it’s not true for you, choose differently. Write down what you really want. Make those thoughts become your reality. All you have to do is start believing you deserve it and start acting like who you want to become because it’s a guarantee that you will most certainly become who you think you are.
