Wednesday Words of Wisdom : 09.27.17
Written by Julie Weinstein
It’s been known that we, as humans, have anywhere from 60,000 – 80,000 thoughts per day. Insane, right? No wonder we’re so exhausted at the end of the day. Our minds are constantly churning and thinking and analyzing.
It’s also been known that those thoughts in our head come from beliefs. And once you have a belief, it automatically turns into that thought, which turns into words, which then become actions.
Think about it. Whatever you believe, whether you say it out loud or not, is a thought. And even if it’s not out there, it’s crossed your mind, and it is now something.
And this can be an incredible thing.
She Believed She Could
So, what if I told you that if you believe you can do something, and I mean really believe it (not just say you believe it, but actually believe it), then you can do it? Well, you might tell me I’m crazy, but it really is that simple.
Of course, hard work is necessary, but really, all it takes is a shift in your mindset and in your beliefs for you to make it happen.
Because the thing is, so often we want to do something (i.e. starting a company you’ve been dreaming of starting, training for and running in a marathon, taking that trip you’ve been dying to take), but then our thoughts get in our own way.
And thoughts are truly so incredibly powerful.
If you believe you can’t land that dream job you’ve been wanting, well, then, I hate to break it to you, but you’re not going to land that dream job.
It takes believing in yourself. And when I say believing in yourself, I mean actually believing in yourself, deep within your bones.
To say something is one thing, but to truly feel it is another. Words are just words until they are felt.
So She Did
Nothing is out of reach and no dream is too big.
If you want to make something happen, you have all the power to do so. But it starts with your beliefs and your thoughts. The second you start thinking negatively or otherwise, it’ll send you down a rabbit hole in which you don’t want to go.
Believe it. Think it. Speak it. Do it.
