The day before yesterday we talked about the types of thoughts that people who are living their dream hold in their minds.
You were to think this through for yourself and figure out what thoughts they probably habitually thought. Did you then compare these thoughts to your own? If so, what did you discover?
People who achieve their dreams routinely think success-filled, uplifting thoughts. Their self-talk is filled with encouragement.
This isn’t to say that they don’t have bad days, that they don’t meet with heartache, that they haven’t ever had to stand by helplessly as their dreams shattered around them. They have had just as many challenges, just as much heartbreak, as the rest of us and have had to figure out how to move forward in spite of disasters, just like me and you.
The difference is that they don’t get bogged down in negative thinking. They don’t wallow in their pain. They don’t get stuck in a cycle of complaining, blaming, and pitying themselves.
Most of all, they don’t quit, knuckle under, throw in the towel, or give up.
Regardless of the calamities around them, they figure out how to take a step forward, even if it’s only a teensy tiny one. They keep moving forward.
You can do this, too. You have what it takes to keep your thoughts aimed toward the positive and then to take one itsy bitsy step forward.
