“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” -Rumi “We are what we repeatedly do; Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” – Artistotle
If you want to make the world a better place, then start with you. Start by making the decision to change your world for the better by looking for the positive side of life. Adopt a glass half full mentality. It may be hard at first, but over time, little by little, small shifts in perspective can go a long way. Instead of honing in on what is wrong with your life, decide to focus on what is right. And believe it, there is always something that is right as long as you are looking! By repeating positive, empowering statements throughout your day, you start to train your brain to believe what you tell it and a healthy habit will ensue. Just watch, before you know it, you will be a witness to an amazing shift that takes place as you start to dismantle negative conditioning that has threatened to sabotage your incredible potential. Rest assured, what you look for, you will find. So, look for the good in yourself and you will find amazing gifts and blessings. The more you embrace positive thinking, you will gain a wisdom that only comes from fully believing your own ability to find excellence out of overcoming obstacles and striving towards possibilities. When you upload to your mind positive thoughts and acknowledge with gratitude who you are and what surrounds you, you will start to see everything in a brighter light. And when you do, you change for the better. The positive impact this change has on you certainly will overflow onto your connection with others simply increasing a healthier energetic vibration for the planet. And then, before you know it, you have positively impacted your world. With a habit like this, even on a rainy day, you will be sure to find the silver lining in the clouds! Now that is not just clever, but incredibly wise!
