Thought for the day

I've updated my art for sale on my other blog - not many pieces sorry - but no time to paint lately - am supposed to have 4 small pieces ready for the Mercure Hotel in Customs St Auckland by next Monday - arghhh... need to get onto that one!

Thought for the day .....

The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives. -- William James

This one - I think would have to be one of the most important things to learn - and something that I have really come to see and understand this year - it is totally amazing what influence our thoughts have over our attitude - for example - believe you will succeed and you will .... positive self talk has an enormous flow on effect to every aspect of your life.

I met a motivational speaker earlier this year who said that whenever he was asked how he was he would reply with "unbelievable" - now he said this could be interpreted either as unbelievably good or unbelievably bad - most people though who hear it interpret it as good - even saying it to yourself can have a positive effect. You are making a conscious decision to be unbelievably good everyday.

If we stop focusing on the negative and look to the positive - then you will feel happier and more content - and then those things that you were complaining about before wont seem as overwhelming ...

Once you change the inner mind attitude you will become happier - and happier people outwardly are more sucessful in every aspect of their lives.
