If we focus on good, good is what we will see. If we surround ourselves with positive people, positivity is what we will receive. Negativity in our lives should be like mold on bread. We wouldn’t enjoy having moldy bread. Why should we enjoy having negative people around?
Positive thinking brings positive results. It’s called target fixation. If we focus on obstacles that we want to avoid hitting, we will end up hitting those obstacles. Had we focused on the pathway around the obstacles, our chances of success would have increased immensely. The same is true with our mental focus. Our lives will follow our thoughts. Psychologists have made millions from people who refuse to accept this concept.
Have some dignity and self pride. People are always asking if I think I’m better than everyone else. I’m not better, however, I’m not less either. I deserve to be happy. What good is having the spoils of this world if we can’t be happy. Happiness is the foundation of enjoyment. What good is focusing on money if we can’t be happy?
I’d be happy with a million dollars.
No, we would be temporarily satisfied. This is not happiness. Satisfaction should never be confused with happiness. Happiness is a state of mind. Satisfaction changes with our present situation. Our level of want drives our level of satisfaction. If we want any car, then we will be satisfied with any car. However, if our hearts desire is only for a 2004 Camaro with electric everything and leather seats, we will never be satisfied. Camaros production ended in 2002 and restarted in 2010. Want is not a bad thing, unless it is unbridled. Then, it can be a beast. Wanting more can leave us unsatisfied. Have the dignity to tell yourself, I don’t want that. Have the strength to walk away. Want is a bottomless pit and a horrible trap to focus on. The more we focus on just being happy, the better our lives will become.
It all start with that moldy bread. Do we keep it or do we throw it out?
