Thoughts, emotions and feelings are energy systems. The energy our thoughts and emotions create generates further energy. Our thoughts and their energy then become things that materialize or manifest in our lives.
We can choose to send our thoughts along a constructive path up Optimistic Road, Constructive Avenue and Positive Street or down Destructive Lane and Negative Trail.
This is not imaginary hoo-hah. It’s based on scientific fact and quantum physics. It’s been covered in law of attraction literature and discussions. I’m sure you’ve heard statements such as:
- What we think about, we bring about.
- You are what you think about most.
- Where attention goes, energy flows—or—energy flows where attention goes.
- Whatever you believe you can achieve, you can attain.
So, if thoughts are things, what do you think will happen if you don’t take control of the thoughts you have and change them? I’ll tell you what—absolutely nothing. Your life will remain the same, full of ruts, sadness and disappointment.
Some people see opportunity in everything that happens to them. A car accident, to these fortunate souls, may be an inconvenience or expense—but it’s also an opportunity to meet another driver and network with them. It’s a reminder to review their insurance policy and a prompt to slow down, smell the flowers and enjoy life. Others see only obstacles and adversity. You can be a victim of your circumstances or you can create your circumstances by changing your thinking and then taking action.
