There’s a famous inspirational quote that has probably been on the top of my list of favourite quotes since I first saw it. It truly sums up your life. More people need to read it and really take in the message behind it.
Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, either way you’re right ~ Henry Ford
Do you fully understand the meaning behind this? It honestly took me awhile to get it. At first it just looked like a bunch of words, another cliche, nothing of great interest to me. I passed it by. Until I saw it again and then again. I stopped to read it. I mean really read it.
My aha moment
The meaning is so much more than just whether you think you can or can’t. It goes much deeper than that. With anything I see or read, I have to analyze it to see how it applies to my life. All areas of my life. This one hit hard, in so many ways.
I get the gist of I can vs I can’t.
But this message also means this:
What you think is what you bring about in your life.
If you think your life is awful, it is.
If you think your life is awesome, it is.
If you think you are smart and beautiful you are
If you think you are dumb and ugly, you are.
If you think you can’t do anything, you won’t
If you think the world is a horrible place and out to get you, it is
If you think you’re a failure, you are
If you think you are magnificent and amazing, you are
If you think you are successful and abundant, you are
If you think you are a loser, you are
If you think you are a winner, you are
Did you know your thoughts have a ton of power?
How often do you stop and take notes on what you are thinking? How often do you take inventory of your thoughts of the day? You know those days when everything seems to go wrong and you keep saying to yourself, all day, “this is terrible, this day is horrible, my life sucks, nothing is going to go right today…”.
Are you with me here?
It’s so easy to get stuck in a vortex of horrible thoughts when your day is off to a crappy start or if something bad happens at some point throughout the day. Your thoughts go down the drain and so does the rest of your day. Amirite?
If you are having a good day and you are having happy loving joyful thoughts all day, chances are your day will stay great but if it doesn’t and something bad happens midday, because you are already in a happy thought place you’ll be much more effective at handling whatever lemon life just threw at you. Does that kinda make sense?
Our thoughts hold great power and…………..wait for it…………..energy.
Everything is energy
Every single solitary thing on the face of the earth, including your thoughts, is energy. Take that in for one minute. Good, bad, negative, positive, happy, sad, loving, hateful,compassionate, hurtful. You name it, each and every one of your thoughts, is full of energy.
What you put out, you get back. Capiche? What are you putting out (well that came out wrong :o ) ? Are you still putting out the story of how your life is shit? Are you putting out how much you love everyone? Are you putting out how much you hate everyone and the world is a horrible place? Are you putting out that the world is big and beautiful and good things come to you always?
What’s been the story of your life lately? Your thoughts, your stories are exactly why you are where you are right this very minute….but….you already knew that, right?
Or did you? Did you know that? You are, or should I say your thoughts are, the creator of your life. What kind of life do you want to live? What kind of life are you creating for yourself right now, with your thoughts? (and when is this chick gonna stop asking so many hard questions?!!)
Know what I want right now?
Whether you care or not I’m gonna tell you. First of all, know that I love you and I only want the best for you and your life.
I want you to start keeping track of your thoughts. I want you to start turning all your negative horrible thoughts into good and happy ones. I want you to send out as much mad love as you can muster in a day. I want you to live a life of crazy ridiculous joy but………..
…that won’t happen until you change your thoughts. So. Por favor, please start thinking happy thoughts, positive thoughts, loving thoughts.
And watch what happens to your life.
Peace and Love
