Eddie Murphy: If You Believe It, You Can Achieve It
I am amazed that some people have been given every advantage in life and still manage to sabotage their success and destroy their chances at happiness. Then there are those who seem to have every obstacle imaginable thrown in front of them and they move ahead, refusing to give up. They take these obstacles and somehow manage to make their lives work and even enjoy the process as they go.
It is my belief that those in the latter group, consciously or unconsciously, shift their thoughts to create an empowering belief system that will steer them to a successful outcome.
People who are successful tend to predominantly have thoughts of optimism for health, wealth and abundance. Whether they are conscious of it or not, they simply don’t allow negative thoughts of deficiency and failure to take root in their minds. That doesn’t mean they don’t have negative thoughts. We all do. It simply means that they’re the people who see the glass half full, whose view of life is generally positive.
It’s easy to determine whether the people you come into contact with are one or the other kind of person. Have you noticed that those who dwell on their ailments are always ill? Those who speak about prosperity are prosperous. Those who talk about how wonderful life is are happy, and people who constantly talk about their cats, well, that’s a different story. The point is that your thoughts cumulatively provide a general blueprint of directives for how you react to everything in your life.
Whatever you habitually think about or focus on the most will appear in your life. So whatever you do, don’t focus on getting hit by a train. That’s not going to end well. The following VIDEO LINK is a great example on how your thoughts write the story of your life. In other words, “What you think is what you get.”
Peace & Laughter,
These thoughts and more are shared in my book, Get Your Shift Together.
