Positive thinking is our default when we want to improve an area of our lives. We journal, recite affirmations, and work to build our positive thoughts. However, positive thinking implies that we accept our own thoughts as truth.
You can attach a particular meaning to anything but that doesn’t mean it’s real. We have to also acknowledge that things only have meaning because we give them meaning. For example, just because you’ve fallen off the wagon in your fitness and nutrition dozens of times doesn’t mean that you’re incapable of success. But that’s the meaning most people give it.
I bring this concept up in the hopes that the next time a situation arises where you feel “less than” or defeated that you stop and ask yourself “what meaning am I giving to this situation?”
By understanding this, you then have the power to change the meaning you assign for the better and propel yourself to new levels of commitment and success.
I’d love to know your thoughts on this!
To Your Success,
