I receive a monthly coaching tip from Michael Paquin at Paquin Training. Very often they resonate with me and this month's is another gem.
Change Starts Between Your Ears
Thoughts are powerful. What you think is who you are. Your thoughts create your world. Be vigilant about what you think. If you want to change your life, change what you are thinking. This isn't about just having positive thoughts. Positive thoughts are wonderful, but it takes more than positive thinking to create the life you want. Go beyond positive thought to intentional thought. Train yourself to see the possibilities in every opportunity. Be vigilant about eradicating negative and dis-empowering thoughts from your thinking. Whenever I have a negative thought, I say to myself, Cancel! Cancel! Not that I can erase the thought, but I can bring my awareness to what I am thinking and shift my thoughts into a more positive consciousness.
Live the Day
Today, practice managing your thoughts. Notice what you are thinking and what you are focusing on. Focus your thoughts on what you do want and not on what you don't.
