Have we been indoctrinated to believe our creativity is no longer enough or are we just too busy enjoying the creativity of others to put our own to practical use? I for one like to stay on the positive side of things but I know that’s not always easy. We are exposed to so much negativity that it becomes nearly impossible to defend against all of it.

This leads me to a topic that is too important not to discuss and that is mindset. I’m sure a lot of you reading this probably view positive thought or positive belief as BS or wishful thinking. I hear where you’re coming from but at least consider my argument before completely discounting positive thought, visualization and faith.

Let’s parallel wishful thinking with architecture. Buildings or any structure for that matter don’t just magically appear overnight. They are planned out thoroughly but their construction is initiated by a single thought. Everything we do in our lives begins with a thought. What are you thinking right now?

What I really want to impress on you here is the fact that you are in control of your thoughts. Your experiences may lead you to believe that the world is bad and everyone is looking take what you have or someone else is preventing your success but I don’t choose to believe that. That’s the lesson in a nutshell! You choose to believe whatever you want and more often than not you will notice that your life unfolds just as you believe.

If thoughts are powerful enough to erect buildings or help a person lose weight or steady enough to help someone succeed in business then it stands to reason that you have been carrying the secret to your success with you all along. I challenge you, right here and right now to change your thoughts and beliefs to something positive. I know it will be difficult and at times may seem impossible but you can do it! Be mindful of what and who you are listening to. Be mindful of who is in your ear and what you’re taking to heart!

It’s your mind and you can change it whenever you want to! At the end of the day it’s up to you to take control of your mind or someone else will. A mind is the most terrible thing waste!
