When Do You Need Your Mind on Your Side Most?

WHEN DO YOU NEED YOUR MIND ON YOUR SIDE MOST?

Our minds are not only more powerful and creative than we know. They’re more powerful and creative than most of us can believe.

We’ve been raised to believe that the world somehow just happens to us out there. We’re not actors, directors, and producers of our lives. We’re kind of intelligent inert rocks with a smile acted upon by forces beyond our control. We’re victims not choosers of our destination and our outcomes.

Even for those of us who know better, this mentality can surface and thrive when we’re tired, weak, feeling defeated, or facing big challenges. In such situations, it’s easy, even comfortable to suppose we’re not responsible and we don’t have say.

Even though, these are the hardest moments to do it, they’re when we most need to put the power of our minds on our side.

When you’d rather believe you’re a victim of circumstance, put your mind on your side and you back in the driver’s seat.

When they’ve told you you’re not capable and you mostly believe them, put your mind on your side.

When challenge or crisis visits your life, put your mind on your side.

When it would be easy to give up and no one else would blame you, put your mind on your side.

When your dreams feel big and distant and your way forward seems blocked, put your mind on your side.

When your egoic mind tries to work against you and beat you down, put your mind on your side.

When the inertia of old paradigms holds you back, put your mind on your side.

It’s precisely those moments when we’d rather roll over and let fate work its will in us, that we need to remember WHO we are, WHAT we are, and that we have this powerful tool at the ready to shift our moment, shift our day, and shift our fate.

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

The Power of Your Mind – Day 336 of 365 Days to a Better You

Today’s Affirmation:
I AM the engine of MY dreams! MY dreams NEVER give up on me and I NEVER give up on MY dreams!

The results are in! For thousands of years, the wisest of the wise among us have been telling us, “It’s all about the mind, stupid.” It makes sense. The mind, via the brain, is the part of our being that interacts with and makes sense of our environment.

Modern science has demonstrated that the Universe around us, despite its physical appearance to our senses, is really just energy. Our mind/brain structure is tuned into that energy and literally creates the individual and collective realities that we experience within that field of energy.

However, the mind is not just a passive receiver of frequencies. It also has the ability to transmit, when trained properly, frequencies that can manifest objects of its desire.

We’ve all heard quotes like these.

  • “The Universe is Change; our life is what our thoughts make of it.”
    ~ Marcus Aurelius
  • “Wealth is the capacity of man’s mind to think.”
    ~ Ayn Rand
  • “We become what we think about most of the time.”
    ~ Earl Nightingale
  • “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
    ~ Napoleon Hill
  • “We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.”
    ~Buddha
  • A man is a product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.”
    ~ Mohondas Gandhi
  • “For as a man thinks within himself, so is he.”
    ~ Proverbs 23:7

These are just a few of the most famous quotes. You could literally fill a book with quotes from humanity’s best and wisest people sending this very same message to you. But, are you listening?

Do you still believe that life is something that happens “out there” and “to you” rather than “in here” and “by you”? Do you still believe that your thinking is out of your control? There’s nothing you can do about it? Thoughts just pop into your head?

Affirmations are a workhorse tool when it comes to changing and choosing the thoughts you want to think in your life. It is more complex than just saying the words over and over, but  there are many resources on this blog and elsewhere to help you with the finer points.

You CAN change and master your thinking. That is the first thing you must believe.

I have been writing and recording audio affirmations for more than 20 years. First, I used them to improve my own thinking and my own life. Then I shared with them others. Now I have created a website called The Affirmation Spot where I make the power of audio affirmations available to you.

How does it work? Just like you learn the lyrics to a song with repeated listening. You’ve had that experience of suddenly knowing the lyrics to a song when you didn’t even know you’d been listening. Audio affirmations provide the same benefit. Soon the positive affirmations are appearing in your mind to replace the negative programming that was there.

I’d like to invite you to The Affirmation Spot today. You can download any single affirmation on the site for free to try or you can jump right and download the ones that make sense for you in your life right now.

You will find short affirmation singles, extended affirmations and meditations, and ebooks. I home record all the audio to keep the prices down and affordable for everyone.

You can always contact me directly and I am happy to help you get the most of your affirmations. I’ve been writing, recording, and using audio affirmations for more than 20 years. So, I’ve encountered and found solutions to the things you may face, as you begin using affirmations. I’m here to help.

Follow your bliss! Achieve your bliss! Become your bliss!
