By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

"What is a thought? A thought is a point of focus. It can be a question, an opinion, a statement of awareness, an interpretation of what is observed , a perception. 

"Our life is what our thoughts make it."

~ Marcus Aurelius

What you are thinking now is an indication of how you are trending, positive or negative.  In other words trending towards solutions or trending or chewing on a problem by coming up with blame for instance!

"Since everything is a reflection of our minds, everything can be changed by our minds."

~ Gautama Buddha

There is power in thoughts, and we are in control of what we think about, focus on and how we feel.

"You created this moment from what you thought and felt three days ago. What you are thinking and feeling right now will create your next moments. You cool with that?"

~ Joe Vitale

 

Wishing Everyone a week full of wonderful thoughts!

Tony Busanich I think that many people are conditioned from childhood to be negative.  Think of all the "don'ts" and the fear that is out there.  Then the news media understanding that to sell stuff adds a fear tone to the equation...A

Nina Hollander, Broker The biggest compliment we have received was actually a critique, and the writer said, we are TOO posiitve.  LOL A

Ron and Alexandra Seigel hi Alexandra... I could see how this could happen. I've come across people who are such "Pollyannas" you really have to wonder.

Nina Hollander, Broker there is always a rainbow in every cloud.  When one is focused on seeing it, then one attracts the answer.  Then problems become surmountable.  A

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I'm in total agreement. When I talk about a Pollyana it's about a person who is blindly optimistic and who really isn't focused as a result. The challenge is to know when you're dealing with Pollyana versus someone who is focused on the positive in the right ways.

Hi Ron and Alexandra- I think we often don't give enough credit to our thoughts and the power they have to impact and influence what happens in our lives.
