Positive/Negative Energies effects the whole

Thursday, December 27, 2012

As we step into the new year let's start with working on our state of mind; Positive/Negative Energies

I know how wonderful it would be if we could switch on confidence, relaxation or creativity at the mere push of a button. Just imagine having unlimited and instant access to our most positive states of mind!

We all know that our mind has a lot to do with our state of being. If we feel that we cannot win, we will not win. I myself have found that there have often been times that I can do nothing wrong. Other times I can do nothing right. But the basic fact is that our mindset is the reality within which we operate is very important.

Enabling States (builds on the positive energies we have) – Confidence, love, inner strength, ecstasy, belief – tap great wellsprings of personal power

Paralyzing States (builds on the negative energies we have) – Confusion, depression, fear, sadness, angst and frustration – leaves us powerless

If one can change a state, one can change a behavior!! We need to learn how to put us into an empowering state or behavior.

Peoples needs and goals, are almost always to achieve the state that we would ideally be in. Yes, money will assist in achieving a feeling of freedom, success and respect. This is a state and a feeling.

The key to love, power, joy is the ability to control, direct and manage our states – our mindset.

Learn to effectively run our thoughts (brain). We have been fascinated for centuries how to alter our states:- drugs, music, sex, religion, liquor, chanting, meditation. These all have their uses and limitations but will not help us find our potential.

Here is the success formula, I was taught:

“Control your thoughts they become your dreams (wishes and thereby what you strive for)

Control your dreams they become your actions

Control your actions they become your habits

Control your habits they become your destiny”

Here are some good dreams to have, some good actions to take, some good habits to build.............and hopefully a good destiny to have

be grateful

be smart

be clean

be true

be positive

be humble

be involved

be still

be understanding

be loving

be a part

Today, you and I are the summery/result of all decisions and commitments we've made in life! If we want to change our behavior, we have to change our decisions and commitments, which is our “state of being”. So how do we change our output? In changing our habits………..which means changing our actions ……………….. which means changing our dreams.

Control your thoughts – they are your state of mind and ultimately decide your behavior.

Action - Take action that you believe will produce the results you desire – else your desire will always only be your dreams

Determine habits - Develop sensory acuity to recognize the responses and results you are getting from your habits, to determine whether they are moving towards the outcome.

Adapt and change until desired result is achieved - Develop the flexibility to change your action until you get the result you want to achieve your outcome.

Take actions to achieve your dreams and build the habits that can make them happen. Success is not a random roll of the dice. There are consistent, logical patterns of action, specific pathways of habits that lead to excellence, which are within the reach of us all. Just remember that The key, is the ability to control, direct and manage your states (yourself).

Good luck to everyone on working on your state of mind

    Absolutely loved this blog! I need to print this out and read this daily to remind myself of every point you mentioned here. I just know I'm going to need this when the new year begins as I've been feeling unsure and powerless on how to handle the changes our country will be facing with the Obamacare, the fiscal cliff, the economy, jobs, etc.... emoticon emoticon

    Lovely blog. It is a really important message and one I work hard to remind myself to DO and not just KNOW. Negativity saps everything out of me. I work in a stressful job and gratitude, positive thoughts, and the energy that comes from a serene, peaceful state of faith and love can mean the difference between a complete breakdown and survival. Thank you for posting this.
