Thoughts, are they hindering your success?

Our thoughts help us achieve what we want in life, it all starts with our thoughts.  The power of our thoughts influence our feelings and our results.  Bad days can happen as a result of our thoughts.  Thinking you are going to have a “bad day” will likely to turnout to be.

Thoughts create a successful day.  How often do you wake up in the morning and say to yourself “today will be a fantastic day.”  Do you consider what will make your day fantastic and what results you are hoping to achieve.  Positive thoughts create good feelings and actions which produce fantastic results.  What is important is the action would have originated from a thought.

Napoleon Hill, the author of Think and Grow Rich once said;

“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.  Don’t wait.  The time will never be just right.  If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.”

With thoughts you need to believe that they are correct and if you think correctly you can achieve.  You’ve also got to be able to see success in your own mind and see that you have the ability to achieve.  Stay focused and you will achieve results.

External influences are out of our control, but we do have 100% control of our thoughts.  We process 60,000 thoughts a day however our brain can only think one thought at time.

Thoughts in our conscious mind  are processed through our sub conscious which sifts information back to us.  So if you find yourself thinking about the bad day you are going to have, or a situation, meeting or discussion that you believe isn’t going to go well (which may be based upon past experiences as your sub conscious confirms this) consider replacing these thoughts with statements such as; “you are not a thought I am going to process,” “I’m now going to replace this thought with the kind of things I want to think about.”

Once you take control of your thoughts, life can become so much easier.  Take control, be the Director of yourself “today will be my choice.”  Thoughts are a good starting point to achieve – if you’re not happy in the work you do, consider changing roles, no one forces you to go to work, it’s your choice, it’s within your control.  If you are not achieving your goals ask yourself: “what steps do I need to take to achieve my goal?”, “what do I need to be seeing?” and “what do I need to be thinking?”

Remember what you think about will bring about.  Say to yourself “I can achieve,” I can get good results,” “I’m going to do something that I have control of.”

 Be conscious of your thoughts, take control and produce those amazing results. In the event that you go off course, James HR can help put you in the right direction. So what are you waiting for?
