Space available

You are the landlord of your mind, and you get to decide which thoughts you allow live there. There’s only so much space available in your awareness, so it pays to fill that space with the most positive, productive, empowering thoughts possible.

If nagging doubts or poisonous resentments are causing you problems, you have the power to evict them from your mind. And once they’re gone, it makes space available for thoughts of gratitude, confidence, and kindness.

Those positive thoughts are the ones which will reliably pay the rent, month after month, year after year. And there are plenty of good, positive thoughts from which to choose.

The thoughts that take up long-term residence in your mind will play a major role in determining the quality of your life. So fill your mind with the best, most positive thoughts you can find.

Insist on only the best in your thinking, and that’s what you’ll get. Even if you can control nothing else in your life, you can indeed exercise powerful and effective control over the thoughts that occupy your mind. And by so doing, you’ll make it a great place to be.
