There is a great quote by Abraham Lincoln that says,
“Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.”
Surely you have met people who need to get this message. You know, those folks who have Eeyore type personalities that can never see the upside of the situation? They seem to get into relationships with people who disappoint them and things in their lives never go quite right. Did you ever stop to think that maybe those people simply need to change their mindset to be happy and find the joy in life?
This is the essence of mind evolution. You really CAN just make the choice to be a positive energy force and get the things you want in life. The hard part is to figure out what it is you really want and to change your inner dialogue. If you find yourself giving excuses for why you will never have a successful career, your career path will remain stagnant. When you tell yourself that you are not good enough at a certain skill, you probably never will be. And when you have no clear direction of where you are going in life, you will not get anywhere.
You need to start your mind evolution journey with a vision. Where do you want to be in 5 weeks, 5 months, or 5 years? Think big, you are just in the dreaming phase of your journey. If you don’t have goals worth dreaming about, you won’t even make it to the first rung of the success ladder. Create a vision board with pictures of the things you want in life. Or write your goals down in a journal. No idea is too big or too small. Keep in mind this is what you alone want, so don’t let your worries about what others think influence your choices. Once you put concrete images and words to your hopes, dreams, and goals, you are more likely to take the steps that will help you achieve them.
Your vision will change as you grow spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, and financially. That is okay. Mind evolution is not a straight line process. You should be flexible and open to new possibilities. Don’t turn down opportunities because they aren’t exactly perfect or you think you aren’t ready. You never know where they might lead and what you might learn. And always remember that your level of happiness is in your own hands.
