Think about the current state of the world today. The news media predominantly reports negative stories. Several people are now getting involved in social media rants and arguments. There is widespread fear and anxiety. Over time, what do you think all this does to your mind and your spirit?
Amid all the noise, you must decide what you’re going to let in your mind and what you must keep out. No matter how accomplished or motivated you are - if you don’t make a conscious effort to feed your mind with empowering thoughts, disempowering thoughts will take over.
Just as weeds take over an idle land, so will negative thoughts will take over an idle mind. Keep active. - King Buari.
From my personal experience I’ve discovered that the best way to feed your mind is to combine words with actions. Positive proclamations alone would not do the trick. We must accompany our words with action. Even if its something as small as reading or watching something positive 10-15 minutes a day. As little as this may seem, this begins to shift your daily habits.
The more that you practice positive habits, the more empowered you’ll feel throughout the day. It's also important to make a conscious effort to isolate yourself from negative people and negative media. Anytime you encounter something negative, take it as a cue to do something positive instead.
Gradually, your small changes will begin to add up. You’ll begin to feel more empowered, more in control, and in charge of your thoughts. Your level of consciousness will rise and you’ll be able to make better decisions that will ultimately improve your life.
