“You’re always one decision away from a totally different life.”
I have been thinking alot about my life recently and what is to come in the future. Most importantly what is possible for me to achieve. The truth is, I am able to achieve anything if I put my mind to it. Nothing is off-limits, as long as I persist and continuously learn to become better. What makes this clear is looking back at what I have already achieved. As a few examples, I never thought I would go to university, I didn’t think I would be able to get onto a graduate scheme and I never thought I would have a blog and an audience to share my voice with. Each of these things happened because I made a choice, of which have brought me to where I am today.
“Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result. Make a different choice.”
I love the idea of the law of attraction. In the sense that changing our thoughts and mindset will enable us to attract things we want. I believe it is training you to think in a certain way which will encourage you to make the decisions that get you closer to where you want to be.
Have you ever had one of those days where everything is going wrong and things progressively get worse? This is the outcome of your negative mindset. It is so easy to find yourself stuck in this cycle. But the whole situation could be completely different if you altered your mindset.
I recently read a free eBook which teaches you how to change your mindset. I found it when browsing the free kindle self-help books. The purpose of the book is to show the reader how to train their subconscious mind and think positively in order to establish opportunities and achieve success. I found the concept behind the book really interesting. Maybe we do have alot more control on our lives that we sometimes feel. If you fancy having a quick easy read this is the free kindle eBook: MINDSET: How Positive Thinking Will Set You Free & Help You Achieve Massive Success In Life (Mindset, Mindset Techniques, Positive Mindset, Success Mindset, Self Help, Motivation) – Benjamin Smith
“Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.” – Earl Nightingale
I believe a negative mindset and overthinking are sometimes the biggest contributor to our problems. Most of the time we worry about something that has not even happened yet or a situation we have created in our own head. Have you ever been really nervous about something but once it is done you think, that wasn’t as bad as I imagined it would be. That is proof right there that our mind and thoughts will tell us something is going to be worse than it actually is.
Changing the way you think is a process, it definitely will not happen overnight. Also, you wont suddenly be positive all the time. But acknowledging that you have more power over your thoughts than maybe you first thought is a great start.
“You create your thoughts, your thoughts create your intentions & your intentions create your reality.” – Wayne Dyer
This was a cool little post. I haven’t thought of those things in that way before. I think of it as you pay you bills because if you don’t you’ll go into debt. But also thinking of it in a positive way to pay those bills for example is really beneficial. http://sugarcoatedbears.blogspot.com/
Really gets you thinking doesn’t it!! Thanks for reading Courtney! xx
I read The Secret about two years ago and have been trying to implement it as much as I can and I am finding it quite hard to shift my mindset. This was a great read and I feel like I want to hit refresh on my life and just try harder because it really does effect your mood. Thank you for sharing xxx

Definitely! It is tough to feel and see the positive in everything all the time, but I can see how we may react or make different choices if we see the positive in situations xx Thanks so much for reading Kiran! xx
Love this post! I’m a HUGE believer in the Law of Attraction (like attracts like, thoughts attract things)! I’ll definitely be checking out the e book! The book called “The Secret” is a very worthwhile book if you wanted to learn more about the Law of Attraction 🙂
Thanks for reading Chelsie! The Secret is really good, it really got me thinking! I love reading random pages from it on Pinterest for a quick ‘pick me up’ xx
I don’t know of any self help books, but I notice when I start to feel like I’m in over my head and I take steps to change my mindset. I know when I’m organized, and I have a plan- I’m happier. I will make an effort to put a new plan in place and follow it. I know it’s me who had to get myself out of the funk and I have to work for it. http://www.mrsqbeauty.com
That’s it Jennifer, we all have control over how we feel. Sometimes I find that I am worried or anxious purely over situations I have created in my head! Thanks for reading xx
Great post! I love being around positive people, it just makes my life so much better and happier! 🙂
Since I’ve read The Secret (you can check it out here: http://fave.co/2vA8iT7) my life has truly changed for the better and every day I try my best to find things and events around me to be grateful for. I hope you would continue to inspire the people around you. 🙂
