The Odds Are On Your Side

It’s one of the great ironies of my work over the years. A persistent reason people give for not thinking positively is they don’t want to be deluded by false hope. It’s ironic because they don’t see how often they’ve been deluded by their own negative thinking.

Often, when confronted by this fact, they will say they’re not being negative. They’re just being “realistic.”

This reveals a mass human tendency to see being negative about ourselves/our prospects as being realistic. It’s a simple psychological defense mechanism to seeks avert disappointment and often responsibility for outcomes we don’t want. If we “don’t get our hopes up,” we tell ourselves, “we won’t get hurt.”

What if we understood deeply that positive outcomes, even by pure chance, are as likely as negative outcomes? When we apply the power of our minds and our efforts, the scale quickly turns in favor of a positive outcome. We literally have direct control over making positive outcomes more likely in our lives.

Now, let’s reconsider the calculation. Is avoiding occasional setback and disappointment really worth missing a dozen victories we might have won, if only we hadn’t been too “realistic” to try? I will leave you to answer that question for yourself.

Keep your mind on your side.

Follow the Rules or Follow Your Heart?


They told you to follow all the rules and you’d be happy and successful.

You gave it your best only to find yourself far down the road and not as fulfilled as you’d hoped.

What gives? Nowhere in following all those outside rules and prescriptions for your life did they tell you that what fulfills comes from within and flows outwards not the other way around.

Thankfully, you have an internal compass that knows where your bliss lives.

Follow your heart. It knows the way.

Wherever you are on your journey today, remember you are awesome!

Tomorrow’s Life is Born in Today’s Mind

One of the keys to understanding the power of the mind and its thinking that pushes and pull the waves of destiny is this.

It’s not one thought in one moment that shifts our lives or the world. It’s our persistent, habitual way of thinking that’s the force that constructs the universe.

Our present thinking – individually and collectively – is constantly busy building the future reality we will experience next.

So, it falls to us to think thoughts that build rather destroy, expand rather than limit, and love rather than fear.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you are awesome!
