“Your mind will always believe everything you tell it. Feed it faith. Feed it truth. Feed it with love.”
Rhonda Byrne – The Secret
The idea presented in this quote is SO important to our fulfillment! And all we need do is continue to remind ourselves to keep our mind on what we want to experience. Our attention will give strength to the attitudes and intentions that we focus it on. If we think negative thoughts, we support negative outcomes in what psychology calls the self-fulfilling prophesy.
Insert the Antidote
One helpful technique that can be used to train the mind to send only positive thoughts is this: Whenever the mind sends something you don’t want to experience just insert the antidote, which is to say, insert the opposite thought, the one you want to have happen.
For example, imagine you are applying for a job that you want, and the mind sends you a thought like, “I can’t get that job; I don’t have enough experience!” Upon noticing the thought immediately insert the antidote, such as, “I can get that job; I have the right kind of experience,” or, “I can get that job; perhaps experience is not everything.”
Soon, the mind will be conditioned by you instead of the culture you grew up in. Take control of your life. It starts in the mind!
