More than 90% of our thoughts are the same every day, you may have heard that but what can you do about it? how can you make sure that those thoughts are the ones you need?
Just as beliefs and values, our thoughts also play an important role on creating our life or reality, our thoughts are energy you may have heard the phrase “what we think we create” and most of those thoughts are the same of yesterday and the day before, we keep repeating the same thoughts over and over every single day and most of them are negative.
We´re stuck in a cycle of negative thoughts based on our past and future and we´re not really living the present. Thinking the same thoughts every day keeps us living the same way and if we want something on our life to change we need to change our thoughts and our emotions but to this we need to be in a constant state of awareness keeping the right thoughts and emotions present and this requires effort which goes against what our mind wants.
We take action according to our beliefs and thoughts so if those beliefs and thoughts are negative and are keeping us away from our goals our actions will also be taking us far from our goals.
Our thoughts need to move us forward in the direction of our goals, then every action we take, every step we take will get us closer to it. Here are some steps we can follow to change our thoughts:
1.- Be aware, be in the present moment.
2. Question if those thoughts are positive or negative
3. Let go negative thoughts.- Once a negative thought comes to us we are aware of it, what we need to do is let it go by not giving that thought more attention and letting is pass by, we can take our mind to our present moment and focus on a positive thought without giving any attention or mentioning the negative thought.
From the moment we wake up every morning the thoughts and beliefs start playing, we think about all the worries and fears and we keep those thoughts and emotions the entire day. What we need to do when we wake up is be aware, when our mind starts to wander bring it back to the present moment and bring a clear vision of your goal, once we have a clear image of our goal as if we already achieved it we need to think of what thoughts we need to adopt. Once we have the clear vision and the right thoughts we need to keep repeating those thoughts over and over for as long as we need until they are part of our new set of thoughts.
We need to realize that the process of changing thoughts is hard and life gets in the way, we cannot let any negative thought or belief that is going to move us back gets in our mind, we cannot let our mind and external situations or people control us, we need to develop the right mindset to control our mind and when we can do that meaning that nothing external can affect our beliefs, thoughts and emotions we are totally in control of our mind and of our life.
By following the 3 steps mentioned before consistently we will start to change our thoughts and beliefs, at the beginning it´s hard to do but we´ll realize that most of our day we tend to focus on negative stuff, this is a huge step because just by realizing that we are being aware and then we can start changing those thoughts by not giving them more energy and focusing on the positive outcome.
