Our life and the conditions in which we find ourselves do not control our thinking, our thinking controls the conditions in which we find ourselves.
It’s been said that we create our own Heaven right here on earth, and I know that to be true. I also know that we create our own hell on earth as well. In my work in prisons, I find those who are living in great joy and appreciation for life and for being alive. I also find those who are sitting right next to them who are in a state of depression and hopelessness. Same conditions, different states of mind.
Every situation in life has two aspects -wanted and unwanted, positive and negative – and we are free to focus on either. Our mere focus or thought about one or the other causes that aspect to grow and our feelings about that aspect to grow as well. Focus on the negative and we feel bad, focus on the positive and we feel better. It’s really as simple as that.
Life always follows this continuum:
Thoughts create Feelings — Feelings lead to Actions — Actions lead to Results …. every time, for everybody.
If you don’t like the results or conditions that you have created so far, begin to look for the positive in every situation and your life will never be the same. The conditions around you will begin to match those positive thoughts that you think and the feelings created by those thoughts.
Your thoughts create your conditions and YOU control those thoughts. Take charge!
