One of my main themes on this blog is about using the power of your mind to live the life you want to live. I say it all the time (as do many others) that the more positive your thoughts are, the more positive outcomes you will experience. It’s also great how you can use your God-given free will to deliberately monitor your thoughts and take control of your life.
The problem with this is that it is difficult to monitor your thoughts on a consistent basis. If you are like me, your days get extremely busy and you think many different thoughts. So how can you tell if your are thinking the right thoughts? The answer…drum roll please….is by your emotions. How are you feeling? The answer to that question also answers the one about what you are thinking. When I first began studying the power of the mind and being sure to maintain positive thoughts, I didn’t believe that emotions played a big part. After all, it is difficult even for the happiest person to feel happy every moment of the day. One can’t be expected to be, as negative experiences and difficult obstacles are inevitable for anyone. However, the more I continued to study, the more I realize that, even though we can’t be expected to be perfectly hapy all the time, our emotions are still the best indicator about how we are thinking.
The key with using emotions as your guideline is consistency. Ask yourself..”how am I feeling on a regular basis?” If you are generally feeling sad, frustrated, and negative, it means you have been thinking negatively. As a result, you are likely experiencing generally negative situations, not reaching the goals you have set for yourself and living the life you want. On the other hand, if you are generally feeling good, positive, optimistic, and hopefull, you are thinking those types of thoughts, and most likely enjoying those types of circumstances.
Once again I will say that no one can be expected to be happy all the time, especially if going through a difficult time, like job loss, death of a family member, etc. However, when you monitor your emotions and strive to think the most positive thoughts possible, even these most difficult situations become easier.
Success in life begins in the mind with positive, faithful thoughts. Constantly monitor your emotions to be sure you are thinking those types of thoughts. If you’re feeling good and positive, it means you are on the right track to attract those types of situations in your life. The more positive your thoughts and the more powerful your feelings and emotions, the greater happiness and success you achieve in life. It makes a big difference in life, and for me, sometimes it’s so overwhelmingly positive that it makes me emotional. Enjoy the blessings : )
