Your mind is the most powerful tool you own and once you realise this, your whole world will change. The opposite is also true. A closed mind will be the most expensive thing you own.
Your thoughts become things, and you become what you think. Positive thinking is a state of mind. When you change the way you think, you change the way you feel. It’s all about controlling your thoughts, maximising your potential and taking charge.
Your world is a reflection of everything you think and feel. It is not about how old you are or what you weigh, the eyes are the windows to the world and they speak volumes.
Anxiety is a driving force and keeps us in emotional turmoil. It is a direct result of living in the future, worrying about things that may never happen, lack of money, relationships and so forth.
It is also linked to negative self-talk. Whilst there is only an apostrophe between can and can’t, when you remove negative words, you open yourself up to a possibility filled world.
