Discipline

April 2, 2009

It takes a measure of consistency to stay on the road to inspiration, optimism and miracles. All successful spiritual travelers employ a ritual that ensures that their hearts and minds remain open to all the good that life has in store for us.

Since miracles know no time, it is important to persevere if things are not happening on our own schedule. That is where optimism comes in. It is of paramount importance to remain optimistic even when our backs are against the wall.

A ritual I highly recommend is to make a list of all the people, places and things that you are grateful for. Appreciating and recognizing the good that is already in your life puts you in a position to welcome even greater.

Try it. It works, I promise.

Ritualize Positive Thinking

January 20, 2009

A belief is nothing more than a thought that occurs numerous times. That thought then becomes what a person believes to be a truth.

A great tool for optimistic living is to train yourself to think different thoughts over and over again.  Set up a ritual to be silent, and bring to your mind positive thoughts about  situations that seem to be challenging. Think and FEEL the positive resolution.

Do it repeatedly. Make it a habit.

Thinking and feeling positively will formulate a different set of beliefs about those challenging situations. Go ahead, try it.

I dare you.
