[success]Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives. ~ Sidney Madwed[/success] Come the end of the day will you have increased your portfolio? No, I’m not talking about money ~ been there, did that…moving on. I’m talking about investments in your life. I’m talking about the currency of the universe…your thoughts. It’s time to make sure we’re not spending our time, or really most importantly our thoughts. Use the time wisely, choose your thoughts wisely and your personal portfolio can only expand. The thoughts we choose, the ideas we accept as true, the beliefs we plant in our minds are either an investment towards the attainment of our dreams or a squandering of a life we wished we’d lived. Ouch, reminds me, I think I did a bit of squandering today when I got distracted by some rumour that might even be true, but didn’t contribute one iota to the fulfillment of any of my dreams. I doubt that you’ve ever done that. Right? Our experiences, good or not so good reveal to us what we accept as true. And I’m willing to admit right here and now that some of the experiences I’ve had in life bear witness to me being something of spendthrift with my thinking…in the past of course. 🙂 Today I like to keep my portfolio bursting at the seams radiating into my world the most wonderful events and people I can possibly imagine. I said I like to, not that I always manage it… I’m doing what we all do, the best I can…and it’s an improvement on previous portfolio performances. And every time I get a dividend…a great return on my investment…by having an amazing experience…I want to invest even more. I’m encouraged by my success. Be your own encourager. Don’t accept anything you don’t want to appear in your world. Even if it seems set in stone. Don’t deny it, just ignore it; simply keep your attention on a better thought and a higher vibrational feeling. Remember, everything you’re willing to accept as true will embody itself as a condition of your life. So be conscious as to what you’re accepting. Become determined to be an investor of thoughts and if you find yourself having thoughts that aren’t positive and productive and heading in the direction of your fulfilled dreams, choose again. Be mindful…don’t get distracted by rumours…oh no, that was me. Hmm. Make it easy on yourself, it doesn’t have to be hard, it doesn’t have to be a struggle, please don’t decline your dreams, start walking in their direction. Invest in yourself by trying these four effortless ways to enrich your life.
Accept success, security, love, peace, joy, serenity even if your senses deny their existence in this moment. Only by accepting them in your consciousness can you ever experience them. If we don’t admit something to be true for us, we can’t, we won’t experience its reflection around us. Just say not in my world and stay focused on what you want. Invest in your every moment. [success]Everyday, God gives us the sun – and also one moment in which we have the ability to change everything. ~ Paulo Coelho[/success]
Live continuously in the assumption you are what you want to be, you have what you want to have and then you’re investing in you, in your life, in your world. You’ll receive all you can accept. Keep investing and soon the dividends will show up. [success]Only as high as I reach can I grow, only as far as I seek can I go, only as deep as I look can I see, only as much as I dream can I be. ~ Karen Ravn[/success]
If you are currently viewing the world as filled with lack and limitation in any way, shape or form, switch viewpoints. Begin to use your imagination and see the world from the place of security and plenty. Persuade yourself it’s true by describing this world to yourself mentally, from that assumption. And most importantly stick with it. Remember thought is the currency of the universe ~ you’ll get what you pay for ~ make it something magical and beautiful. [success]The appearances of things change according to the emotions, and thus we see magic and beauty in them, while the magic and beauty are really in ourselves. ~ Kahlil Gibran[/success]
Don’t allow outside forces derail you. It’s true that there are events over which we have no control, but as my Mum used to tell me…we have control over how we respond to things. Life can be one big distraction, if we let it be. Our experience of any event depends on what’s happening in our consciousness, our interpretation of the event and our ability to control and direct our thinking through our attention and creativity. [success]Each day is a new canvas to paint upon. Make sure your picture is full of life and happiness, and at the end of the day you don’t look at it and wish you had painted something different. ~ Unknown[/success] How are you investing in yourself?
