Managing Your Thoughts

When you are giving yourself a talking to – we know you all do it – why does it have to be negative? Why can’t you tell yourself it’s all going to be okay, everything will work out? Why? I said it before that life goes on until it doesn’t. There is no reason you should be belittling yourself. You are important even if you think you are not. Start by telling yourself you are because it’s true. Life is amazing. Don’t believe me? Stop a minute and look around, focus only on what’s going on around you. Look at the lights. The colors. The animals – whether your pets or not. Look at your pictures. Do you see it? Life is amazing. Life is what you make it.


How do you make an amazing life?

You make an amazing life with proper management of your thoughts. You can slow down the world or you can speed it up. You can do what you want. Dream Big. Dream little. Dream none. It’s all on you. If you tell yourself you want a new phone, the magic begins to happen. Just by telling yourself you want something, your mind begins to look for it. Now, any time you’re out or online when there is a phone your mind is going to knock, hey, there’s a phone. What about that one? It’s true. When you look for something you’ll find it. When I bought a car, I’ve never seen one like it before, but since I own one I see them everywhere. It works the same. You have to set your mind in motion. It’s so easy a cat can do it. “Want to pet me?” says the cat, “walk over here mother fucker!”

Never make an excuse not to do something you want to do. Be like Nike and Just Do It! Or regret it for the rest of your life. You are the boss of your mind, you tell yourself when to sleep and when to wake up. You tell yourself what not to eat and what not to drink. If you don’t like a certain drink you more than likely will not drink it. So if you don’t like a certain thought, then what think it? Wake up and smell the coffee beans or What The Rock Is Cooking! Sorry, I had to! But foreally though? Why not think the thoughts you want to think? There isn’t anybody going to stop you from controlling your thoughts, well except maybe yourself. And since you can stop yourself it only means you can NOT stop yourself. Get it? Got it? Good!

Yesterday I said to believe in yourself and you can do great things. Today I’m saying manage your thoughts because you are the boss. Be a strict boss and make the right choices with the correct thinking. It isn’t hard. It’s only hard if you say it’s hard. It’s only easy if you say it’s easy. What do you say? You think you can handle the job as Manager of your Thoughts? If not, send me an email and let’s talk. I will help you and guess what? I won’t ask you to pay me. Let’s learn to boss around our thoughts together. Or not, totally up to you. I will not say a word about our conversation to anyone. There you have it. Manager! Get the job done!
