Change your thoughts, change your life.

By
Industry Observer

I saw this video and it reminded me of the power of words and how we use them. We are what we think. The average person has over 30,000 thoughts each day and over 80% of them are usually negative. 

Neuro pathologists and scientists working on unlocking the mysteries of our brain now know that each and every thought we have releases chemicals in our brain and in turn every cell in our bodies. Positive thoughts release good chemicals which promote our good health in so many ways. When we focus on love, peace, goodwill, patience, kindness and hope, our bodies react in a very healthy way. Negative thoughts release the opposite and when we dwell on hate, anger, bitterness, envy, jealousy and the likes, it's slowly killing our bodies. 

That's why the Bible is so relevant to showing us how to live healthy lives, body mind and spirit. It tells us things like ...a broken spirit dries up the bones, ...think upon things that are of good report and is exactly why we're told to take every thought captive to God. It simply means that we can't afford to have a thought in our head that is not God approved, for our benefit, not His. 

Yesterday, I read an email and the person said something about... "dealing with life." In the context, it implies that life is an irritating thing to be unpleasantly endured. It is just as easy to say it like this: "interacting with life and all of it's opportunities." It makes a difference in your attitude and health to rephrase these common negative sounding descriptions when speaking or writing. Another thing I've heard that sums it up is this: Some people wake up and say "Good morning Lord" and others wake up and say, "Good Lord, it's morning." . 

It takes a very conscience effort to watch over our thoughts and what comes out of our mouths. It is a practice of the presence of God at all times. But it is a very rewarding effort just the same, body, mind and spirit. Remember, your mind controls your brain, your brain does not control your mind.

I love to share, thanks for reading and watching Donny. I just had lunch with an old friend and we talked about having to renew our minds every single day.

The POWER of WORDS! I saw this video a few years ago and remember. The words we use  - whether to ourselves or with others - have an unbelievably powerful punch! Have a beautiful day, Bob and Bonnie.

There is a famous speech by Earl Nightengale(from the late 60's) called the "Strangest Secret" . Google it

Bob, that video helps my prospective change. Thanks for sharing that and the idea that good thoughts help the brain produce good chemicals that help our bodies be healthy.

Jane, Indeed and it's a constant battle every single day going on within our minds. Put on your full armor everyday, better yet, never take it off. Thanks.

Michael, I will look that up on this snowy peaceful day. Thank you.

Mike, It's not just a good idea but imperative to renew our minds each day. I guess we're rather leaky vessels. Thanks.
