Sometimes there is great validity in the term “waking up on the wrong side of the bed.” Often when we wake up “expecting the negative” we will actually “make” that negative happen. Most times we don’t realize that we have a hand in our own destinies just from the way we think. For instance, if we think we can’t do something then in most circumstances we won’t succeed. That is because we are already eliminating our possibilities simply by saying or thinking the word “can’t.” When you set your mind to making change or conquering obstacles is usually when you have the greatest chances of doing so. Years ago when I was performing at a casino in Atlantic City I actually watched people losing great amounts of money at a roulette wheel. No one seemed to be happy and that was because no one was winning. Then I watched this elderly man “dressed immaculately” walk up to the wheel with two (2) women, one on each arm. This guy was “reeking with confidence” and you could tell that he was rich already. This man walks up for the very first time and bets a whole LOT of chips on the long shot to play (in other words, this would have had the longest odds of winning and the maximum payout). Lo and behold, this man hit it on his very “first” spin. Everyone was amazed, and right after that man won all that money he simply walked away with his two woman on his arms. On the other hand, there are people who believe that nothing good will ever happen for them (and most times they are right). When you search for the negative you will often “create it” whether it really existed or not. People who “continually look for bad things” will often believe that bad things are about to happen. For them it doesn’t matter whether they are right or wrong. It’s their perceptions and judgments that will validate the way they feel. I say that it is always best to “know” the truth before making up your own… Find out the real details before you come up with any one sided conclusions. If you take the positive road and have faith before rushing to judgment your outlook could end up being much better. No one is telling you to be naive but there is nothing wrong with at least “giving the benefit of the doubt.” Stop looking for negativity. Once you cleanse your mind of suspicions then you can actually live a healthier life. Don’t we all deserve the best? Think with confidence and faith, and believe in the good things before you go off on a negative tangent. You may find the positive energy you need to make your life “feel much better.” Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought, and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
