Thoughts Are Things

Have you ever wondered where thoughts come from? Are all thoughts made up in our minds? Of do we somehow come by then naturally as we go about life.  Does it really matter where thoughts come from?  No, It doesn't. Thoughts are things and it's up to each individual to decide what thoughts they want.

 

A thought is just a thing you keep thinking and believe it's true or not true. At times you don't like your thoughts but keep thinking them anyway.  Why? Because thinking is a habit. Some habits are refreshing and create momentum others are energy suckers.

 

Thoughts can be tricky little suckers, can't they?

 

Group A I know a lot of people that keep thinking the same thoughts that never get them where they want to go.

 

Group B I know a lot of people that continually 'upgrade' their thoughts to align with where they want to go.

 

Which group do you want to be in?   That's kind of a stupid question, isn't it!  Oh, sure Anna I want to keep thinking thoughts that don't create what I want!

 

Choose your thoughts wisely. And, when you find yourself thinking thoughts that are not creating what you want in your life - change them.  But remember....

 

" The trouble is not in changing your thoughts but in keeping them changed"

                                                                                             Thomas J Willhite

 

In the next couple of days think of a thought that could use some tweaking to create better results, better feelings.  Play with it, have fun changing your thought and keep changing it as often as you need to until it simple becomes normal for you to ' think the better feeling thought that creates better results for you.  It's really pretty simple once you get in the habit of changing your thoughts and keeping them changed.

 

Thanks to Michael Jacobs for my wandering, pondering thoughts today!

Hi Anna! Wonderful thoughts that are oh, so true-to-life.

Funny thing but, I awoke to a nasty, nasty day and I had a gazillion things to get done today, including picking up blankets for our Humane Society drive. It was raining cats & dogs and I was instantly down because I wasn't going to be able to see my clients that I was visiting (picking up blankets on their front porches). 

My best 'cure' was to shift thoughts and think about the good we were doing for the shelters. And, VOILA! It worked and by the end of the day, we had glorious sunshine and got to see a few clients who could come out for a short visit. I swear it was the mindset! 😊

Good morning Anna Banana Kruchten CRS CRB, Phoenix Broker - as I began to read this I heard the Michael Jacobs pondering. When thoughts become habits they are attitudes.  "Your Attitude determines your Altitude"  Zig Ziglar.

This is very good, ... reminds me of the old 80's movie "Nigh Shift" with Henry Winkler / Michael Keaton ... and when Keaton's character tells Winkler's character, " I am the IDEA Guy".

Hi Ed Silva that's when it's a wise idea to simply slow down, breathe in and out 10 times, lather rinse repeat as needed.

Hi Kathy Streib I think so too.  Some folks are still thinking and believing things that didn't do them any good 30 or 40 years ago. Such a waste of postive energy.

This is what I'm talking about Debe Maxwell, CRS !!  I woke up with a slight allergy issue and it was - oh no.  I 'shifted' my attention and it was full speed ahead.  Glad your day was successful as well!!  See you soon on zoom!

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. people will hear it and take heed when they're ready.  I've been doing this so long it's just part of who I am now.  Dreams are dreams! Thoughts are thoughts!!  My two cents!
