I’m life coach Peter Winslow. Recently, someone in the life-coaching group advocated the exercise of rejecting all negative thoughts as they occur and accepting and acting upon only the positive ones. Could one do this for a week uninterrupted, she told, one’s life and fortunes would certainly change for the better.
Would that we could only entertain and act upon our likes and loves rather than being pushed and pulled by our fears or by worries and concerns over daily challenges. Some may think it naive to do so; that it may not be possible to live in a world where negative influences are not addressed or even acknowledged. However, there are others who live with the mindset that everything serves in some way or another and therefore nothing is truly negative.
These people vow that to adopt this philosophy for a week (or better yet—a month) will release us from ailments and suffering. They also suggest that in so doing we become a magnet to attract the people and resources we really desire. Do you buy it?
I’m going to do this for a month and I challenge you to join me:
Let’s believe only those thoughts which add to our faith and conviction in the goals we have set, and in ourselves. Immediately dismiss all others. The conflicting and challenging thoughts that often occur are only temporary and lacking any power to manifest in the world of form without our permission and belief.
We’ll check in with ourselves daily by using the practices of meditation and contemplation, remaining steadfast in the knowledge that what we put our beliefs in must come to pass. We now create from within and are never the “victims” of external circumstance.
