Your Thoughts Dictate Your Actions…

The human mind is an amazing tool. It generates both positive and negative thoughts and there is always a conflict between them. What wins out is shown through our actions and behavior towards things. If our mind is full of positive ideas on dealing with everyday life, our way of thinking also becomes positive, if it is full of negative thinking then that is what plays out.

Positive Thoughts –

We can define the term “positive” as confident, optimistic and focused on good things as opposed to bad things. Therefore, positive thoughts are those that bring confidence, optimism and focus to us as an individual. Positive thought breeds a positive outlook in life.

Optimistic, positive thinking includes thoughts such as: “I am smart. I am open to new ideas and knowledge,” “I stand out in a crowd with my magnetic smile” and of course “I can, therefore I will.”

Simple “I can’s and I am’s” are the perfect way to start cultivating a mind filled with positive thoughts.

Negative Thoughts –

Negative is the opposite of positive. You could define it as “being pessimistic or tending to have an undesirable outlook.” These types of “mind thoughts” are nonconstructive ideas that discourage us from being someone or doing something. They pull us down so we are unlikely to believe in ourselves or in what we do and achieve.

When we formulate limiting beliefs about what is possible for us to accomplish, our response is to limit and bind any actions we take. As a result, the results we experience are limited.

Negative thoughts are evil and many times observable on the faces of people entertaining them. No, not, don’t, can’t, won’t and what ifs are all types of negative thinking that destroy rather than create. These types of limited thoughts hold you back and build a wall between you and your goals. They keep you from doing something without even trying.

Truth is, our minds our boundless when it comes to generating thoughts. When an issue occurs, it immediately goes to work making a list of all possible solutions, regardless of whether they are acceptable or unacceptable or even possible.

It’s at this point of disturbance that the clash begins. The positive thought “yes, I can” and the negative thought “no, I can’t” compete. The accepted and prized thought is what then moves into action. If our belief is that we are likely to fail, then the subconscious gets to work producing actions that support this belief. On the flip side, when we trust we’re going to succeed then then our subconscious goes to work setting the table for success.

It is our actions that speak loud and clear and reveal what kind of thoughts have been dominating our minds. These are the thoughts we carry around and entertain on a daily basis. If there is something that needs working out, it is not our actions that need tending to first…but our thoughts which lead to those actions.

We must get life working for us. Since all our behavior results from the thoughts that precede it, our focus should not be on the “behavior” exhibited but the thing that is causing this behavior…our thoughts.

Both positive and negative thinking have power over us. It’s entirely up to us which one we choose to empower us since both shape our future and create out destiny…just bringing different results.

Always keep in mind the fact that your thoughts are more important than the actions you take. If you keep yourself in a constant positive frame of mind, you will be able to keep your motivation to achieve optimal health strong and resilient. With strong motivation behind you, achieving your goals becomes much easier.

Remember, positive people feel good about themselves and this translates to self-confidence and strong self-esteem.
