Our mind is incredibly powerful

It takes in thousands of thoughts everyday, with the capacity to help us accomplish our goals, and reach our full potential if we let it.

We have the power to choose.  The choices we make will determine the thoughts we think; the thoughts we think will also determine the choices that we make.  So, it is important to be mindful of the choices we make and the thoughts we think.  

If our thoughts are productive, then our actions will be productive. If our actions are productive, then our results will be productive.

By the same token, our mind can hinder our progress if we allow thoughts that are negative and counter-productive to become valid.

Our mind is a special gift that each of us has received. It WILL help us IF we let it.  

We will get what we think about.  So, it is important that we take the time to govern our thoughts. We can reach our goals and get the things we want by altering our thoughts and changing our actions.  

Our future is bright, and our opportunities are exciting.  Let’s take full advantage of the opportunities we have and the future before us by magnifying our thoughts in a Positive and Productive way.  WE can learn how to alter our thoughts and change our behavior so that the life we want and the successes we desire can be ours.

Don’t be so satisfied with the success stories of others and how things have gone for them that you forget to write your own. Unfold your own tale and bring it to life. You have everything you need to become what you are capable of becoming. Incredible change happens when you decide to take control. This means consuming less and creating more. It means refusing to let others do your thinking, talking, and deciding for you. It means learning to respect and use your own ideas and instincts to write your passage.
