Are you the type of person that looks at your problems more than your blessings? It is so easy for us to look at our problems, to look at what is going wrong more than the blessings we have in our lives. In Tommy Newberry’s book 40 Days to a Joy-Filled Life he says:
“We become what we behold. At any given moment, you can choose to pay attention to what’s present or what’s missing, what’s working or what’s broken, what you achieved or what you messed up, what’s available or what’s unavailable, what’s possible or what’s impossible, and what excites you or was frightens you. And, in so doing, you will win or lose the battle for your mind.”
No matter what is going on in your life YOU choose to pay attention to the good or bad in your life. Both your silent thoughts and speech will help you focus on what you really want to accomplish in your life. You have to refuse to ignite and fuel your problems and negative emotions by constantly talking about what is wrong with your life but start talking about what is good, in your life. “Our lives tend to imitate the thoughts that we entertain most consistently,” Newberry says.
So start entertaining your blessings more than your problems and what your life change.
