Words have power. There’s a scripture that says, “As a man thinks, so he is.” We think ourselves into labels and absolutes that often times are highly inaccurate.
I’m not good enough. I’m too out of shape to start. I’ll always have this problem. I can’t afford ___________. I’m a ___________ and always will be. I can’t do ____________.
You get the picture. Your words or inner thoughts have control over your present. You can’t think yourself into a new position in life, but you can actively propel yourself into a better present mindset, which will destroy your limiting mindset.
What is it that you want to do that you aren’t doing because of faulty thinking? Do you have dreams you want to accomplish? Maybe you hate your job and you’re afraid of making a change. Are you unhappy with how you look and talk negatively to yourself?
All this can change by practicing positive thinking. A simple exercise that takes a few minutes a day is writing down your negative self talk and replacing it with either the truth or what you want your future to look like.
