The one thing we have absolute control over in life is that of our thoughts. In reality, you are a living magnet and constantly attract what is in accordance with your thoughts; people, things and even circumstances. Life is based off of cause and effect, in the case of the mind, thoughts are the causes and the conditions in your life are the effects. The circumstances you find yourself in are based off the things you think on a consistent basis. Whether your situation be that of good or bad, it is simply magnifying your thoughts be them positive or negative. If you want to change your life all you need to do is change the way you think.
The people who make it in this world are those who do not accept their circumstance but look for the circumstances they want and if they do not exist, they create them. Harvard psychologist, William James, once said, "if you only care enough for a result you will almost certainly obtain it. If you wish to be rich, you will be rich; if you wish to be learned, you will be learned; if you wish to be good, you will be good."
touré's first lesson
1. Get rid of the word “can’t” in your vocabulary. Do not allow yourself to be consumed with reasons why you can not get a task completed. Get it done! If you need to - take a blank piece of paper and write I CAN in big letters. Post this paper somewhere where you will see it every day so you never forget you have the power to do what you put your mind to.
2. Surround yourself with other people who have the mindset you want to achieve. If you need to, make a list of every person in your life that you feel brings negativity into your life. Then create a list of those who bring positivity in your life. Once you’ve separated those types of people in your life begin to give more of your energy to those that give you good energy and slowly branch off from those who don’t. Never forget that you are a combination of the 5 people you interact with the most. Make sure those people have the RIGHT mindset!
3. Be careful what you allow to enter your mind. Your subconscious works 24/7 and can easily be influenced by the environments you place yourself in. If you are in a toxic environment. Leave it right away, don’t wait for it to change. If it’s a relationship then come back once it’s non toxic. Your environment is KEY.
4. Read! Seek opportunities to learn and achieve at all times. There have been people who have struggled with having the right mindset for years and have recorded the ways in which they dealt with these things. Use them as a resource and learn to conquer your own demons through the lessons of others. You don’t have to go through anything alone. Use those people who have the right mindset as your examples and never be afraid to reach out when your spirits are low.
