The seeds which you plant in your mind today, will become tomorrow’s reality. Sounds like a rather bold and far-fetched statement when you first hear it, but it’s true. The quality of your life depends very much on what you choose to feed your mind. Whatever you feed it, your mind will work to turn that into your reality through your thoughts, beliefs and actions.
If you fill your mind with negative input, you become negative and pessimistic.
If you occupy yourself with mindless activities, you will become mindless and go through life on autopilot.
If you carry out the bare minimum amount of work on your personal and professional development, just enough to get by, then the life you lead will be strictly average.
If, however, you fill your mind with positive input, you will develop an optimistic mindset and lead a positive life.
Furthermore, if you work hard on your personal and professional development, constantly striving to learn, adapt and grow, you will lead a successful and fulfilled life
Which would you prefer?
You can’t blame anybody else but yourself for where you find yourself today. After all, you can’t reap the benefits if you haven’t taken the time to sow the right seeds in the first place. That doesn’t mean that all hope is lost, though. It’s never too late to start turning your life around.
You are your own creator. When people talk about the power which we all possess, this is what they are talking about. Each of us has the power to shape our own individual destiny. Our lives, and our current circumstances, are the physical manifestation and result of our beliefs, decisions and thoughts. Those who do not realise this fact often find themselves working for, or idolising, those who understand this truth and live their lives accordingly.
Grab a pen and paper and audit your thoughts and decision making processes.
- What kind of input do you mostly feed your brain? Positive? Constructive? Helpful? Negative? Mindless?
- What do you spend the most time thinking about?
- Do you often reflect on how difficult and unfair your life is? Or do you think about how your potential is limitless, and how incredible your life would be if you applied yourself and put in the necessary work?
Your thoughts dictate your actions which in turn determine the quality of life which you will lead. Feed your mind with knowledge and positivity. Expect good things of yourself, and then get out there and work for them.
