Have you ever wondered why sometimes things keep going wrong (I am sure you have heard “They come in three’s”), and how is it sometimes everything seems to go right for us? I believe a lot of events in life are co-created by us and by our thoughts (you can learn more about this by reading As A Man Thinketh by James Allen – if you want a copy please send me an email). In simplicity, when we have had a period of productive empowering positive thinking, we inevitably create a flow of good things coming our way, hence the term “In the Flow” and similarly, if we have indulged in negativity, we inevitably begin to attract unsavoury things into our life. This has been my experience in life (and business) and with the observation of my many coaching clients.
Hence, it becomes paramount that if we want to significantly reduce the number of negative events (being human, we will always have internal battles with negative and positive thoughts, we just need to be on the right side of the equation) and hence have a life that is more “in the flow” then it makes good sense for us to become masterful with our thoughts, strategic with our environment (hang around positive, loving, caring, inspiring people), and focussed on what we want in life (rather than focus on what we don’t want).
Creating a life of flow is both a science, taking control of your thoughts and only allowing positivity to enter your mind, and an art, being forgiving of yourself when you fail, for we are only human, being forgiving of others limitations, realising there are no absolutes in life, and it is all a journey. Human beings are all created equal and all have the capacity to use their mind as a blessing or as a curse – the choice is always with us. One of the key reasons why people who attend our Breakfast at the Next Level, or The Next Level Retreat, or are clients of the Platinum (Coaching) Program succeed, is because they realise the power of their mind and its application. We have all been given this God given gift called “the mind” and it is up to us how much of it we use for our good and for the good of others.
The first step is to become aware of every thought that comes through your mind (most of us receive 60,000 thoughts per day… incredible when you think about it!) and to learn how to engage with thoughts that will lead us to a better life. This requires us to know when to quickly disengage with thoughts that are deceptive, negative and disrupting to our attainment of a life of abundance. This is why the wisdom I am sure we have all heard at some stage “For things to change, I must change” is so true – for our lives to change, we have to change from the inside to then begin to see the changes on the outside. This wisdom has been with us for thousands of years.
Because of this wisdom and the way life works, I am an advocate of each of us working harder on ourselves than we do in our jobs. Working in your job (or your business) will provide you with a living… Working on yourself will afford you with a fortune! I encourage you everyday to invest time in optimising your thinking, becoming more self aware, spending time on reflection on how you can improve your thinking skills, and creating thoughts that you affirm to yourself (affirmations) that will lead you to the life you desire and deserve… a life more abundant.
