Where's Your Focus?

Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote, "I always turn to the sports pages first, which record people's accomplishments.  The front page has nothing but man's failures."

If we listen to the biased media and read the politically-motivated editors, we set ourselves up for a discouraged mindset.  Whether it be conscious or subconscious, negativity seems to be pervasive at this time in our country's history.

I have always believe that we get out of our bodies and minds what we put into our bodies and minds.  If we put in essential vitamins, good protein, and adequate sleep, our bodies perform well and remain healty.  The same goes with our minds.


The images and words we allow into our minds repetitively have a great influence on our emotions and behaviors.  This is a well-researched truth.  When you see the picture above, what thoughts and feelings emerge?  Does the word bring up certain feelings?


Now, look at the second picture.  What feeling do you get from that?  What thoughts arise from viewing this second picture?  Does the word beside the picture bring up certain feelings?

The point is that we must choose what we put into our minds, into our views.  We can place deliberately positive words and images into our lives in order to change our thoughts and feelings.

Just try it......

You are right, we become what we think about the most.  If we are positive and happy and treat our bodies and minds well, we will be healthy.  If we focus on the negative, don't sleep enough and eat poorly, our mental and physical health will suffer.
