Your mind needs food. It needs positive food. The best way to keep a healthy mind is to feed it with positive things. If you feed your mind with positive thoughts, with positive events, instead of negative events, you will get a happy mind.

A happy person is someone with a happy mind. You cannot be happy inside and be unhappy outside. Your outside life is a reflection of what you are feeling inside. You can make your mind happy. You can make your mind sad. It is your choice.

You can make your mind happy by focusing on positive things, by focusing on the good things in any situation, by doing the right things, by helping those in need, by putting other people first, by loving people unconditionally, by being grateful, and by forgiving the people who have wronged you. When you feed your mind with these things, your mind will never know sickness. You will have a healthy mind. You will have a sound mind. You will have a productive mind.

Make sure you are always working to protect your mind from bad people, people who will never find anything good to tell you. Stay away from those people.

Feeding your mind with positive thoughts does not mean that you are going to be happy all the time. That is not the case. It means even when you are not happy, you still find a way to make the situation a positive one. That is, you never allow the negativity around to decide how you run your life.

Always focus on the positive things in your life. Always appreciate what you have, and where you are in life. Feed your mind with positive thoughts. Try to develop the habit of thinking in positive ways. When you see a negative thing or it happens to you, try to picture it in a positive way. In doing so, you have created a positive picture of that event in your mind.

You are created to be a positive person, not a negative person. Stay positive!

How To Use The Power Of Self-Discipline To Change Your Life

Self-discipline is the foundation upon which success is built. Self-discipline is doing what you don’t like to do. Self-discipline is doing something right in the face of obstacles. Self-discipline is doing what is important, not what is urgent.

If you want to be happy, to be successful, to be productive, you MUST earn a degree in self-discipline. You must discipline yourself. You must stick to your plans, to your goals, to your dreams. You must make the art of self-discipline a habit. You must practice it on a daily basis. You must live it.

You can discipline yourself to success if you want to. If you want to do it, to put yourself on the right track, start small. Start by disciplining yourself in small ways. For example, if you say you want to do something, no matter what is happening around you, stick to what you say you want to do. It is not comfortable, but it is doable. Jim Rohn, a motivational speaker, said, “It is the small disciplines that lead to great accomplishments.” Don’t force yourself to be perfect at it the first time. If you think like that, you will get frustrated. Give yourself time to get used to it.

Self-discipline is hard. When you are trying to get something done, focus on where you are going and what you are going to get- the results- when you get there. Don’t focus on the toughness of the process. If you do that, you will be frustrated.

Stop telling yourself ‘you can’t do it.’ Stop telling yourself ‘it can’t be done.’ Start telling yourself that ‘everything is doable.’ Stay away from making excuses. The more excuses that you make, the weaker you will be. To make things happen in your life, stop making excuses and start taking responsibility. That is the only way to conquer fear. That is the only way to get results that you are looking for.

According to Dr. Scott Peck, “Self-discipline is doing the unnatural.” He is right. It is teaching yourself to do the right thing, even when it is not popular. It is setting priorities to get things done. If you want to get ahead, set priorities, and follow through. The results will shock you. Try it!
