How We Think is Often Fueled By The Way We See Ourselves

How we think is often fueled by the way we see ourselves. In a recent devotion, Dr. Charles Stanley wrote that a negative self-image is a barrier to faith, in this case, our confidence to carry out our God-given assignments or achieve our goals. Other “faith barriers” to reaching the winner’s circle in life include fear and doubt. Ultimately, “faith barriers hinder the flow of divine power in our life, slow spiritual growth, and prevent us from fully carrying out the Father’s will.”[1]
We are like magnets: we tend to draw whatever thoughts are in our mind. You will only produce like-minded things. You have heard the following sayings:
“If you want people to believe in you, believe in them.”
“If you want people to trust in you, trust in them.”
“If you want people to like you, try liking them.

Your Mind Is Your Most Powerful Tool

We all hold within us stories from our childhood. We carry stories about holiday traditions and the right way to make our beds. We also absorb how to find love and care by observing our parents, siblings, teachers and friends. We learn from everyone how society works, what we can and can’t do without getting into trouble, and what kind of personality we have —humorous, kind, introvert, extrovert, nerdy, stubborn. 
We carry these stories, both good and bad, into our grown-up lives. We form and frame our outlook around these stories, accepting the limitations that were set when our personalities were just starting to develop. Then we spend the rest of our adult lives allowing that inner child tell us what we can and can’t have, be or do.
My usual state is to wonder whether I’m worthy enough. That tiny voice deep inside whispers that I can’t do or achieve certain things. I’m certainly not going to get rid of those fears overnight, and neither are you. But you can use that fear as faith to keep pushing toward your dreams.
To begin, take out a piece of paper. You’ll need to explore what thoughts are holding you back. Do you struggle with self-worth? Are you anxious about failing or perhaps of succeeding? When a different opportunity arises, do you move forward with a yes attitude?
Here are four questions to ask yourself to help pinpoint and overcome your limiting beliefs:
Once you recognize your doubts and limiting beliefs, you must continue to work at encouraging yourself in those moments of self-doubt. You will soon find, when the pesky voice of limitation disappears, that your mind is your most powerful tool.

Attracting Success

Once we have our mindsets at this level, outdated goal-setting exercises are naturally exchanged by the more dominant technique of setting intentions to attract success. A goal is something we do not have that we desire to get. Our belief is that the desired object or experience is separate from us.
Traditional goal-setting exercises show us how to crawl toward the outcome in baby-step goals, each step meant to build up our self-confidence until desire turns into belief. This can take a long time.
An intention, on the other hand, is a goal but with all doubt about its attainment removed. Baby steps are not needed because there is no doubt about getting what we desire. Instead of inching toward it, we can simply sit back and let it come running to us. The main dissimilarity, however, between intentions and goals is direction of effort. With goals, we push effort toward the object. With intentions, we draw or attract the object to us.

This may seem like a subtle shift in thinking, but it is an important one if you want to move from accomplishing a few goals to achieving any all of the goals you set. Small changes in how we think make huge differences attracting the success you desire.

What's your “Branding Mark”

 “Branding Mark”


The Greek defined character as a “branding mark” on products, an engraved or stamped mark on coins or seals. It’s a word that may refer to any artificial symbol or sign and it often refers to human moral character involving assessments of mental qualities and moral virtues or lack of them.
            How you act is “your brand.” If you examine a commercial or any advertisement closely, you will notice that it has a distinguished label, look, or mark. You’ll know whether it’s pushing Pepsi or Coca Cola just by the advertisement. You can recognize a pair of Air Jordan gym shoes just by the logo. If someone labeled you, would it be in the form of a winner? Would it be negative or positive? Would it capture the attention of another person? These are some of the questions you need to ponder when developing your character, and if you don’t like your answers, you likely need to adjust your thinking and actions accordingly.

Wow—it’s just a thought.

So many of us wrestle quietly in frustration, hoping for the trouble or misery to disappear into the blowing wind. Some people wish and hope for something grand to happen to them without putting in the hard work it takes to prosper in life. That’s why gambling in America is a multi-billion dollar industry. American gamblers lost—are you ready—nearly $120 billion in 2013.[1] Think about that for a moment. Those gamblers are probably like many people who look for a miracle worker to come and tap them on the shoulder and instantly make them successful people. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone could make you successful with a simple yet magical touch? Imagine reclining on your sofa surfing channels when a miracle worker comes shows up of nowhere slightly tapping you on the shoulder. Then suddenly, wealth and prosperity are overflowing your life. Wow—it’s just a thought.

Remove Negative People and Influences


It can be challenging to get rid of the destructive voices inside your head when you are surrounded by people who are cynical. Once you start to hear negative words all the time or feel negative attitudes, it's difficult not to agree with them. Oftentimes you won't even notice negativity and your positive outlook on things start to dissolve. While there are many way for you to deal with negative people, it simply may be best for you stop communicating and interacting with them. People who are verbally negative all the time are most likely having negative thoughts, too. Individuals like this can be toxic and you don't need that in your life when you are trying to improve your thinking and your life.

Change Negative Thoughts with Encouraging Affirmations



Instead of dwelling on a bad thought, substitute it with a positive affirmation. Positive affirmations are positive declarations that are said with confidence and a perceived certainty. By saying them, you begin to overcome negative thoughts in your subconscious mind in a healthy way by putting a optimistic spin on it. You have to completely have faith in the words that are coming out of your mouth and use statements that you know will steer you to an improved attitude. Don't just say, "I am a successful person," but say things like: "I am young, powerful and rich” or
“every day in every way I am getting better and better. When you become more specific, it will support you in seeing the outcome much more clearly.
