What stops us from having a productive, peaceful mind, a mind that is fluid and lucid, a mind that is energized, capable and fully determined to reach our highest goals is having a mind that is filled with resentful road blocks, self-destructive detours and cynical and suspicious beliefs.
Listening to negative thinking and unwanted thoughts is a pointless, time-consuming habit that does nothing but leave us stuck. But, when we are angry, when we are frustrated and when we have had enough, we can use that energy to fuel ourselves into something more. With the right attitude, we can take that victimizing rage and turn it into a powerful strain of strength to fuel to rocket us to a whole new level of powerful confidence.
I’m getting into the habit of replacing all useless thoughts for useful ones.
How do we know when a thought is useless? We can simply ask – what good will this ruminating thought bring us? Will it bring us closer to harmony? to feeling good? Feeling empowered? Or will it only frustrate and aggravate us even more?
I am giving myself the permission to stop the worrying and self-pity.
And I am making great progress focusing on the productive, peacefulness and power of this present moment.
