And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.

Spending your thoughts

To remove a problem from your life, first remove it from your mind. Rather than spending your thoughts on those things you don’t want, apply those thoughts toward your positive possibilities.

Instead of looking for things to worry about in a particular situation, look for ways to make a positive difference. What you focus upon has a way of becoming real, for your thoughts are what guide your actions.

You would not choose to spend a lot of your hard earned money on something you did not want, for that would not make sense. And in the same way it does not make sense to spend your powerful, influential thoughts on those things you do not want.

See clearly what is there in front of you, and think of it in terms of the positive possibilities. There is a positive, forward-looking response to even the most negative and difficult situation.

Your thoughts can give power and life to what you don’t want, or to what you know is best and most positive. You can choose whatever you prefer by the thoughts you choose to keep in mind.
