Your Mindset is the Key

Words define your mindset. Your mindset defines your life.

“If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.” — Buddha

The moment we realize how magnificent each of us is, by being just a unique individual, is the moment when true change begins. The change is a call for attracting all goodness into our lives. However, before starting a change, we need to be aware of our mindset because our mindset can determine our future.

The words that we speak are manifestation of our thoughts and our thoughts can create the world around us.

Words that we reserve within our thoughts can create us.

Often, we don’t think about what we think about. It is important sometimes to stop and wonder what you are thinking about. If it’s nice, continue to think about that. If it’s not, stop.

You can control your thoughts. You can be the conductor of this orchestra. You simply have to focus on your desires, not on the barriers to those desires. For focus can allow you to control the flow and content of your thoughts and prevent them from creating bad emotions. You need good emotions. Good emotions lead to satisfaction and satisfaction lead to happiness and success.

If you already don’t behave this way, you have to focus on the beautiful characteristics of people who are around you. And stop complaining about their characteristics that don’t suit you. Because this way you will only get what you talked about and you will be more and more unsatisfied and in unbalance with your wishes.

You are the Majesty of your life. You just have to let your beautiful qualities become dominant and fill your thoughts. 

Words define your mindset. Your mindset defines your life.

Pause for a moment and say these words out loud:

  • Life
  • Love
  • Happiness
  • Forgiveness
  • Tenderness
  • Attention
  • Desire
  • Value
  • Faith

Notice how all these words awake positive side of your thoughts and soul and light up your day. We must learn to balance our thoughts with our feelings, and our feelings with the words we speak. We need to remember that words are things which have impact upon others and that we need to want to always have a positive impact on others. We might also remember that scene from the Bambi cartoon when bunny Thumper says: “If you don’t have something to say that’s nice, better don’t say anything at all.”

So let this be the moment when you tell yourself that you will stop thinking about bad things and events, and find something good in every situation.

In fact, it is an old and well-known philosophy:

“What you give, that shall you get.”
“What you sow, that shall you reap.”
“What you think, you become.”

You are magnificence of its own kind. The entire Universe is in your heart. You hold the key of life creation in your mind.

Be the creator of your own life.

There has never been a better time and greater opportunity than right now to become a creative force in this world and achieve true success and happiness in your life.

Thank you Catherine for this knowledgeable article. Keeping positive thoughts in our head is really a challenge sometimes but remembering that you will soon become what you dish out is a good reminder to always strive to think good thoughts. Thank you for this well written article.

That was a fun and enjoyable read. I have been laughing a lot lately as people are proposing gun confiscation as a means to stop the shootings at schools. I grew up with guns, my mother was a wiz at shooting. My brother was a sailor doing rescues on the mek9 Delta, he was shot several times. My husband usually brought home two deer a season, we had guns they were locked up, I never saw the gun locker until my husband died . The way to stop the carnage is to make children value life. I worked at probation and parole for too many years, I saw the convicts with tears tattooed on their faces to show the number of people they had killed. If you confiscate guns from the law abiding citizens then only the criminals will be armed.

I enjoyed your article so much and I agree with all that you said. We have so much control of our thoughts and how we look at life if only we practice it more. Thank you so much for your wisdom, I look forward to reading more from you in the future.. Diane


A terrific and extremely helpful article; it is easy to read and makes very good sense.

I loved this article Catherine (shared as well). If only we realized the incredible power we hold. If only we were aware of ourselves. We have all the influence over how we experience this life, yet so few of us seize and exercise that power. <3

Wonderful article, thank you. Very insightful and helpful. I really believe that we have an inner roommate so to speak and really taking the time to check in with that roommate to see what they are saying and doing. If we don’t like the roommate kick them out 🙂 if we do, make them cozy. Love your list of positive words to say out loud and think in our thoughts.

Thanks God for giving us healthy mind and spirit. We should focus our mind for goodness and holiness not for an earthly desire. We’re lucky to have happy family, relatives, friends and good people around in times of needs and joy. God bless us all.
