Changing your destiny is as easy as changing your thoughts. It really is.
Our choices don’t determine our thoughts. Our thoughts determine our choices. If you think negatively you’ll act negatively. Negative things will be prominent in your life. If you think positively you’ll act positively. Positive things will be prominent in your life. It really is this simple.
I use the word “prominent” because shit happens. You can be negative and good shit will still happen. You can be positive and bad shit will still happen. It’s what you do with this “shit” that makes the difference. Every situation in life carries with it a seed of extreme opposition. Every good thing in life come with the power of destruction. With every bad thing in life comes the power to create.
Positive and negative is a perspective. Events in life are neither positive or negative. They are just events. It’s our mindset that determines if the event is good or bad. As you know I’m in prison right now. Most of the world view this as a bad thing. Don’t get me wrong, it sucks being locked up. But I’ve chosen to try to see the positive in everything.
I’ve taken advantage of this situation to become the best me that I can be. I spend most of my time on improvement and learning. By thinking about prison as an opportunity rather than a setback and choosing to better myself, I’m changing my destiny.
I study business and investment, so I can own my own company doing what I enjoy. I study philosophy to get different views on how the universe walks. Instead of being stuck with what I was told to believe as a child, I study psychology to understand why people do what they do, without judging.
I spend time on this website to help people see the power of the mind, to encourage them/you to not only think positively but just to think. I really enjoy helping people. I love mentoring. Not mentoring an individual on a regular basis to teach them all my ways. Mentoring on a situation basis. (There’s a guy I hang out with, he’s not the best with money but would like to get it under control. I try to help him with his money, but I don’t push my workout routine on him.) I’ll have a bigger opportunity to mentor more people in a few months. I’m excited about this new opportunity.
By choosing to do these things, I’m building a foundation for the future I desire. I am creating the destiny that I want. Right here in a place most of the world views as a setback, I only see open doors.
What do you see in your own life? Set back or open doors. Do you understand that your future is determined by the choices you make right now? You can change your destiny. The power is between your ears.
