Who is really stealing your joy?
Your thoughts and what you focus on 24/7 absolutely steals your joy.
You must make a conscious effort 86,400 seconds of every single glorious day to decide and choose what you’re going to think about.
Daily practice allows you to turn this into a habit and then you don’t even have to think about it any longer.
You just do it!
If you’re not going to choose your thinking, your autopilot and default programming will determine not only your attitude but all the results that you will ever hope to obtain in this lifetime.
You can choose exactly what you’re going to accept and what you’re not going to accept.
You remain in control but you have to seize this opportunity and act.
Determination, openness, understanding, compassion and purpose will be your mental toughness armor.
Choose your thoughts.
They ultimately become the unfolding picture of your life.
Nothing in life will always be ideal, pleasing and fulfilling.
Your energy will only be in alignment with your thoughts; feelings and actions therefore seek perfection in the imperfection of everything in your life.
There will always be various types of piranhas online and off line that attempt to derail you from your chosen quest in life.
Get rid of these naysayers and delete them from your thought life.
These people are everywhere.
They are piranhas in your midst.
They love to kill your dream, your goal or your aspiration.
If you are not strong, confident and inspired by a cause greater than yourself, you will pack up your suitcase at the very first obstacle.
Criticism will bombard you from people who were supposed to be your friends or even loved ones.
As you begin to gain momentum in your quest, the same people will fade into the sunset or begin to take notice.
Your spiritual armor of defense against these invading piranhas is to take absolute control of your thought life to the best of your ability.
“As someone thinks within himself, so he is.” — Proverbs 23:7
WHAT YOU FOCUS ON 24/7 IS THE KEY
My definition of the word focus is “fierce optimum concentration unusually sustained.”
The bottom line is that you always get what you focus on and your thinking and subsequent attitude determines your focus.
Here is a focus exercise.
If you can sustain it for 3–5 minutes then you are well on your way to compartmentalize and not let issues distract you.
Brian Tracy said, “Never say anything about yourself, you do not want to come true.”
Yes, the universe is always listening.
Guard your thoughts and guard your speech like a sentinel.
