Choose good thoughts

If you’re frustrated, worried, or annoyed, it’s because you’ve decided to be. And the moment you remind yourself of it, you can decide differently.

You have ample reasons to think negative thoughts. You also have the ability to replace those thoughts with more empowering ones.

It’s valuable to notice and acknowledge life’s difficulties, to be realistic about them. That enables you to make meaningful improvements and helps you avoid trouble.

But there’s negligible value in obsessing over negative factors you can’t do anything about. Instead, point your powerful thoughts in a direction where they can do some good.

All through the day, every day, you can decide exactly which thoughts will fill your mind. Select the ones that lead you toward achievement, fulfillment, kindness, and understanding.

Think of positive purpose, confidence, excellence, patience, beauty, and determination. Choose good thoughts, and follow where they lead.
