Mental momentum

Which direction is your mental momentum headed? Are your thoughts joining together to support you or to hinder you?

Life has its ups and downs, its possibilities and problems. Which aspects are you focusing most of your mental energy around?

You’re constantly creating elaborate scenarios about life that exist solely in your mind. Those scenarios, that mental momentum, can push your real-world life in a variety of directions.

If you seek to gather evidence that all of life is against you, you’ll find it in abundance. Negative mental momentum will lend a destructive, neglectful, dejected flavor to all you do.

Choose instead to construct a scenario around the positive possibilities. Be thankful for the best that has been, imagine the best that can happen, and continue using the power of your thoughts to add details and substance.

Your actions, your effectiveness, your results are influenced by the mental state you’re in. Maintain positive mental momentum and the benefits will flow to every part of your life.
