Your Own Little Secrets
Your mindset is your key to success or failure. But you may not always know your thinking patterns. A helpful thing to do is to find role models. Actions and thoughts are closely linked. The people you wish to learn from will say and do things that will reveal how they think. Then you can learn from that. At times you will say to yourself, "I don't agree with that." Delve down into your reasoning process and discover why you disagree. Perhaps you are right, perhaps you will discover that a change is in order. Affirmations are an old but useful tool for changing your mindset. You write or say "I am...(followed by what you are trying to become).." When you have a negative reaction such as 'I cannot do this' look at that as housecleaning of the mind. Just bless it and let it go. Conversations with true friends will also help you identify your mistaken mindset and thus enable to adopt a more successful one. James Allen wrote a book in 1903 As a man Thinketh, That is very helpful along these lines. The way the spark of magic can help you here is to give you that extra bit of energy to root out the negative, adopt the positive and gain success.
