Thoughts and Mood

Is there a link between your inner thoughts and your mood? According to your subconscious mind there is! Your thoughts are the most powerful manifesting agent you have. Think about it, everything that was ever created started with a thought. Your thoughts work together with your subconscious mind to manufacture your reality, and your internal dialogue is bound to affect your mood. You always get what you focus on. It’s that simple, what you think is what you create. Buddha made it very clear with this quote:

“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make our world.”

How can you change your mood; by changing your thoughts.

Here are some ways to start changing your attitude:

1. Pay attention to your internal dialogue, and replace all negative thoughts with positive ones. Don’t allow your mind to get to that dark place. Stay in control of your thoughts.

2.Quit gossiping and complaining how life is so unfair. Start taking action to create a better life. Take note of the quote from Eleanor Roosevelt: “Great minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, and small minds discuss people.” Get your “great mind” into action!

3. Remind yourself that there is a purpose and a reason for everything that happens. If you are faced with a negative situation, turn it around into something positive. My grandmother fled her native homeland to this country for a better life. She lost several of her young children as a result of the war, but she was determined to make a better life for her surviving kids. Even with all the suffering and turmoil, she saw the purpose in her circumstance. If it wasn’t for my grandmother’s positive attitude, I might not be here writing this article.

You have all the tools within you that are necessary to take control of your life and change it into what you want. What do you think?
