The Power of Your Thoughts
If people can take away one message from my happiness workshop, it is this: What we focus on expands. This is a cool concept, and one we can use to our greatest advantage — or unwittingly to our disadvantage.
Everything that happens in our lives begins with a thought. We are actually creators of our own experiences in many ways. As you go about your day, ask yourself: “What am I focusing on?” Are you thinking about what is going wrong in your life, or are you focused on what you appreciate about it? Are you excited and looking forward to what’s going to happen today?
I’ve been studying happiness for years now, and I even catch myself giving attention to negative things, or thinking negative thoughts.
