Different kinds of thoughts

💫There are 3 kinds of thoughts: automatic, assumptions and core beliefs.

Automatic thoughts

We are constantly thinking about things, all day long. These are automatic thoughts. There is no basic problem with these thoughts unless they are almost always negative.

Assumptions

Assumptions are the rules that we live by. They involve conditional statements or demand statements. For example: ‘People should be nice to each other’, ‘I should be perfect’. They are restrictive and not always true.

Core beliefs

These are strong, absolute statements we make, that we take as fact. They include:

I am…

others are…

the world is…

If our core beliefs are very negative and unbalanced they can contribute to having more frequent negative automatic thoughts.

Exactly what are you thinking?

👉🏾It is human to have down times, where we feel discouraged, depressed and listless. The difference lies in how quickly we choose to get over those things that are holding us back, or making us feel less than our personal best. And that, I believe, is the key: being able to get past the downtimes in one’s life as quickly as possible and getting back on with being your best, moving forward in continuous improvement.

👉🏾Remember, self-improvement is a hands-on project. That is to say, that without on-going implementation of the new ideas we learn, try as we might, we aren’t going to miraculously wake up one day changed people. No, we’ve got to act on those ideas and bits of advice we learn.

😃Here is a saying by Zig Ziglar; he has such a simple – yet powerful way of getting his point across:

Zig says, “People often say motivation doesn’t last, well that may be true, but neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it every day.”

👉🏾Understanding the need to attend to motivation and inspiration on a daily basis can lead a more positive daily life. Let’s look at it another way. You wake up and you pretty much have a clean slate. In most cases your day is fresh – neither overly negative nor positive. 👉🏾That being the case – then wouldn’t it stand to reason that importing positive thoughts (i.e. reading, listening, reciting, meditating, viewing, etc.) first thing in the morning, and throughout your day could do wonders towards reprogramming the way in which you see your world?

👉🏾Read the above Zig Ziglar quote several times a day. Also, choose to read from an inspirational book or listen to inspirational songs at least three times a day. In addition, immediately balance any negative experiences with something positive.

👉🏾Given the events of most people’s days this isn’t always feasible, but this approach can pay dividends and is worth attempting. Keep in mind that no matter how great any idea or advice is, unless YOU choose to implement it and give it a fair shot to work in your life you’re not going to get results.

Let me say that again – because it’s that important!

👉🏾YOU have to be a part of your own success journey. If you want to see real lasting change for the better in your life, you’ve got to be the biggest part of the process.

👉🏾So simply knowing that you can offset your negative feelings by introducing positive thoughts into your mind simply isn’t enough. No – you’ve got to actually do it – it’s going to mean keeping that inspirational book, or tape handy to refer to when you need to. It might mean stopping what you’re doing at the moment or even scheduling yourself some time to take in positive or motivational material.

👉🏾Like dieting or exercising, developing a positive mental attitude is a choice. It requires nurturing. It’s not always immediate, but if you will work on it, and cultivate it you will see results. And those around you will as well.

Monday Motivation

😄💪🏾Happy Motivation Monday Warriors, let’s get this week started right!

What you didn’t accomplish last week, you can do today!

Remember don’t give up….your successful life is on the way!!!

What does it take to be successful?

Glad you asked👇🏾

Ask around and you will find different answers to the formula of success. The truth is, success leaves clues and you can achieve the success in the area you desire by observing the common qualities and principles. They are simple and considered to be common sense but most people simply do not follow them.

Let me share with you one of my favorite quotes:

“There are no secrets to success. It is the results of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure” Colin Powell

As stated in that quote, there are three key factors to achieve massive success in your life:

1.Preparation

You don’t have to wait for everything to be perfect. Start with the first step and keep moving. Success doesn’t happen over night. Prepare, prepare, and prepare. You must be ready to receive the success you desire. Set your sight to the destination that you want to achieve, then work and prepare for the moment when the opportunity knocks your door.

2.Hard Work

Success needs hard work. Don’t listen to these ‘get rich quick’ schemes. You need to build your character and work hard on yourself and your business to achieve greatness. Work hard and work smart. Do the right things and do them in the right way. Don’t procrastinate. Take bold actions. Work long hours and craft your legacy.

3.Learning from failure

Successful people do not see failures as failures. They see them as important learning lessons. Lessons that are capable of giving them insights to prevent such mistakes from happening again. By adopting this mindset of turning each failure into a learning lesson or opportunity, you can never fail until you yourself quit.

Preparation, hard work and learning from your failures are the fundamentals to building your bright future.

And Giving Up isn’t an option!!!!💪🏾

Happy Sunday 🙂

Happy Sunday friends, hope everyone enjoyed the weekend!

I’ve been under the weather with a respiratory infection and it has taken all the life out of me!🥺😷

I’m feeling a bit better today as I get ready for worship this morning!

Our church has decided to commit to the Daniels Fast for the next 21 days and I have decided to join in!

There are so many reasons why I feel I need to get closer to God!

Have any of you fasted before?

Did you do it alone or with a church?

I have fasted for Lent but never like this before so wish me luck!☺️

In the meantime, as I was researching this fast I came across some of the benefits that may help me as well:

Mental & Emotional Benefits of Fasting

Fasting benefits are different from person to person, but the following have been known to occur: (8)

❗️Fasting relieves anxiety and nervousness

❗️Fasting can increase peace and shalom

❗️Fasting clears your mind of negative thoughts and feelings

❗️Fasting can help heal relationships in your life that have been stressful

❗️Fasting decreases brain fog

❗️Fasting helps increase your ability to trust God

❗️Fasting clears out toxins that can make you feel sluggish or depressed

As I was researching my fast, I came across this 👆🏾thought you all would like to see the benefits of the fast!!!
