The thought bubbles that flow from your stream of consciousness are the building blocks of your worldview. These internal dispositions are at the core of your identity. They are the projection of your self-image. They dictate your mood. They are the filter through which you interpret stimuli from the environment that you exist in. In short, the words that flutter through your thought processes hold more significance than you think – that's why it is so important that you become aware of them.
You will manifest the narrative that you create.
Engaging in positive self-talk cannot be reduced to just "having a positive attitude." Seeking positivity in your thoughts will actually foster positivity in your real life. By holding yourself accountable for how you think, you will be empowered to make tangible changes in your life that will lead to genuine fulfillment in all that you do. The words that compose the narrative of your mind are like a screenplay for your life, otherwise known as your perspective. As the old adage goes: "if you think it is so, it is so."
Make your perspective your power.
Falling down the "what if" rabbit hole of negativity is a common obstacle that everyone faces from time to time. When your thought process takes on this form more often than not, then it's time to adjust your sails. Even though it may sound like you need to experience some profound revelation to shift your perspective, it can actually be easier than you think. Altering the way that you view things can be achieved by stepping back and listening to the insight of others. By removing yourself from the situation that you are in, you can take on an outsider's point of view and adapt to whatever life throws at you. By changing your perspective for the better, you will possess the power to transform your life.
"When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."
