Your life is what you make it. Your happiness depends primarily on your attitude in life, and especially on the nature and quality of your thoughts and ideas, which are more powerful than you may imagine. They’re your main weapon in your fight to lead the life you want.
You don’t see the world as it is, but as your mind sees it. In other words, all your perceptions and thoughts act as a filter between reality and you. The world is what you think it is. If you think it’s bad, you won’t be able to make progress.
Your thoughts influence your existence, as well as your environment. You’ll be happy or unhappy depending on whether your thoughts are positive or negative.
To make your ideas as powerful as possible, they have to be positive. When a negative idea enters your mind, let it come. When it goes, let it leave. Treat your negative ideas the same way you would a horse.
Just like a wild horse, you have to calm your negative thoughts. If you let them remain in your mind, they’ll go round and round like a horse trapped in a corral.
If you let the horse out, it’ll run as far as it can, and then after awhile it will calm down and become quiet.
Do the same thing with your negative thoughts. Don’t try to trap them. Instead, open the gate to the corral of your mind and let them run free. They’ll soon pass away.
If they persist, think about something positive, something good you want to achieve. With a little practice, reacting this way will get rid of your negative ideas.
In time, your mind will become calm all on its own. Negative thoughts will disappear, you’ll be more in control, and you’ll be able to change your life and the world around you.
