Your Mental Attitude

Attitude Concept
By Randy Gage in Critical Thinking, Prosperity, Success.

Last post we looked at how you create the future with your thoughts.   Once you accept that you are the thinker of your thoughts, you become the architect of yourself and your circumstances.

There are no random accidents…

Both the harmonies and the challenges you face are intimately related to the world of your thoughts.  Ultimately you will always arrive at the place where your most abiding and intense thoughts take you.

If those thoughts are base, they’ll take you to a base place.  If they are empowering, they will take you to a place of peace and prosperity.

Change your thoughts – change your results.  You up for that?

Absolutely, Randy. Thoughts create electrical impulses in the brain. The sheer presence of electricity creates a magnetic field (the Ampere-Maxwell equation of electromagnetics in physics). And magnetic fields attract. So change the thoughts in order to change what one is attracting.

As far as destructive thoughts are concerned, I remember this saying: "You don't have to believe everything you think." I don't know where I heard that first, yet it helps me release those destructive thoughts. (Does anyone know the author to which I should attribute the saying?)

Also, thought patterns are "contagious"- they can be passed from person to person, especially when people are in close physical proximity. "Highly sensitive" people are more conscious of this transfer.

I do my best to spend time with people who have loving and wealth-affirming thought patterns, to let these factors work in favor of strengthening my prosperity consciousness.

Your thoughts creat your future !!! once i understood that my attitude changed. now i have a vision of where i want to go with my life and i take daily action to get there. Substance is everywhere and you live in it like fishes in water, we shape this stuff with our beliefs and our mental pictures. The kingdom is yours and within you, you only have to accept it by growing your consciousness...beautiful or what !!!

I never think about the bad - I think only about good..! In the past, present and future.
Poor himself will come without our thoughts ... :-)

And the only thought we really need to change is who we think we are. If you decide to think, "I am a holy child of God, worthy and deserving of all God's good," everything flows from this. Don't overcomplicate trying to think "right" thoughts. As scripture reminds us, "Seek first the Kingdom and all else will be added unto you." The key word there being "first," not after you get home from your job, etc.

I understand that mentally, but that is not so easy to do emotionally. Esprcially when all your current circumstances are programming you to keep your old stereotypes.

And here I guess we have tools such as Steven Halpern disks or our own records that programm our subconcsious mind, positive books, a mentor and friends that think positively.

But even having all that does not move us to prosperity. There is something else, maybe you know, Randy?

Recently I have been studying the chapter in James Allen's Book "As a man Thinketh" about thought and purpose. He says that positive thoughts, though important (since the rest of the book talks about the importance of meticulously analyzing your thoughts), are meaningless without a purpose and direction to them. I would say, from an outside perspective, it seems you have nailed down and found your current purpose. Being the knowledge seeker you are, I imagine you would have some advice for someone who feels they have many passions and ambitions they want be a good steward of, with their life. I am currently taking one day at a time, and growing each day with the goal in mind to bring tremendous value to the world. I have a fairly good idea of what the next few years look like, but as far as finding my purpose... I do not know what that would be. Not that I need to know now at this point in my life, but any suggestions of reading material or anything that might help this. I am a Christ follower as I believe you are as well, so I know my purpose as a human being is to please my creator through praise and worship and glorifying him through my prosperity, but how to find a personal purpose with the talents and ambitions and resources I have been blessed with, in order to create an unbelievable story for him is what I am asking. Any thoughts? Thank you so much for all the hard work and all the daily discipline of pouring into us as well with the knowledge you have gained over the years. You have been such a blessing, and a great role model. I look forward to the day when I can tell you that in person.

Yes ... attitude is absolutely everything! And, such a great emotional barometer to help us know when we are following our hearts or veering off the path.

These days I expect good things,so I find them! (... or should I say, they find me?) ;-) But if I feel a little slump in my attitude, that's a sure indicator I need to take a look at where I am not being authentic in my life and work on getting back 'on purpose' with myself.

When my attitude is right, magic is mine ... and that's the way I like it! :)

I like this quote, "There are no random accidents...."
I don't actually believe that, but what I do believe I can sum up in a quote of my own that I say a lot, "I don't believe things happen for a reason, but I believe we can choose to find the reason in the things that happen."

Your attitude absolutely has to do with your results. Your attitude will largely effect your belief, and what you believe creates your experience of reality. This journey of changing your thinking can be a challenging one, but with diligence, like anything else, you can see tremendous results after a while. The important thing is to stay the course.

I almost forgot I wanted to answer the question you posed. I will take a chair and whip to my harsh self criticism. Then I will have the result of loving myself and others more, and gaining the bravery to try things that scare me. At least I think, I guess it is difficult to prognosticate the exact results. :)

After I first read this,I really just liked the phrase: "Both the harmonies and challenges you face are related to the world of your thoughts." That is a beautiful qoutable moment.

Then I read it a couple more times, and I read some of the really great comments. Then it struck me, that there was something in the post that didn't feel right...

I love the idea of being the architect of our thoughts, and I think most of the time we can be. But, I agree more with Eve, if I understood her, that we have to know which thoughts to grab on to and which to let go. Because, I believe there is a randomness to our thoughts and the universe. I also think there is order, but I do think randomness is a part of the universe.

Some thoughts just float through our heads and who knows where they came from. Some thoughts are given to us by others, that we don't even want. What we really need to do is ask ourselves which ones we focus on. If we dwell on negative thoughts they will shape our day and ultimately our life and circumstances. If we choose to get rid of the negative thoughts we don't need, or learn from them we are better serving ourselves and others. Then the positive ones will gain the superior position and if we choose to learn from negative one they become positive as well.

Believing that we have complete control over our thoughts and circumstances will only lead to unhappiness in my opinion. Really. Because not everything that happens is within our control, even though we might like to think it is. Like Eve, I think it is better to look at the realities surrounding us, whether they be good or bad within our control or not, and then choose how we interpret them. We can choose what we think and how we react to it.

Random accidents and craziness will come to us, we choose to let it in, leave it out, and how to interpret it.

Really, really I am not being hypocritical, I am just learning, and making mistakes myself.

The more that I pay attention to my thoughts, the more that I realize that I am the architect of my reality.

Change my thoughts.....this thought makes me feel resistant. As if a part of me is saying:

"no, you don't need to change anything. Everything that is said doesn't automatically apply to you. What you need to do is clarify what is good and let go of anything unnecessary". So if you want to call that "change" you could but it would be better to call it clarify.

Affirm that which you already know, already have faith in, already is working for you and let everything else go.

When you send your intentions out into the universe they come back maybe with other things attached to them. Pick what you need and be able to let go of what you don't. Not every experience is a personal message and reaction from the universe to you. Some yes but others may be from others thoughts/actions that are "connected" to you.

If someone desires something for you, that may come your way even if it's not what you want. Or if someone thinks bad thoughts about you or is suffering and they are emotionally connected to you, that stuff may come your way too. We are all creators in this so all our thoughts create together.

The good thing about it is we have a choice about which things will affect us. Our emotional and mental boundaries can sense these things before they become realities. And here is where practicing good thinking comes in as a part of good boundaries.

We do that by picking what is for us and letting go of the rest.

So which thoughts do I have today that make me want to shine into my day?

Knowing I can share my intentions and ideas, connect with others and the world around me and also be safe because I am protected by my power to choose what comes my way, accept it, let it go or transform it into something that will be good for me to use, in a way that is also respectful of others.

Dear Randy. In the previous post. I commented that the thoughts that I had when I was a child had led me, incredibly, to where I am today. Being an engineer and working in a management position. However, I discovered a much better world, and I want to live it with my loved ones. I'm on vacation today, ending on Sunday 10. I went to the official opening event for my business in Buenos Aires. I came with a lot enthusiasm and eager to grow and achieve prosperity, but temple that when I get my work, I come to a jail. Besides the company is going through times of crisis, the energy of the people I feel very bad and I think that affects me. I think it can be changed if I change my job but sometimes i think that it is not right. "change jobs or change my mental attitude? Today I'm super! On Monday .... mmmm... What do you think about it? What do you suggets?

Attitude is such an overused yet overlooked word. Attitude creates our thoughts. A negative attitude leads to thoughts of lack. A positive attitude leads to prosperity and abundance. I think this action, attitude, is one of the hardest to overcome. It has so many deep seeded roots. I think the first step in overcoming a negative attitude is to DECIDE not to have one. Once this conscious choice has been made, it is a continual process of correction until old patterns are broke and new behaviors start to emerge. Maybe some day we will just plug ourselves into a machine that sorts them all out for us. Until then.....

We are what we think.
So changing our thought must change who we are.
Absolutely.

There are those who go further in saying that everything that surrounds us is a creation of our consciousness.

I totally agree with this concept. So much so that I often say about insignificant things, "now if I could just use my power for good!" My challenge is to harness and believe in my power during times that are so hard. It seems like I've been days away from losing everything for years. How do I remove myself enough to put on the right mental attitude to turn things around if I'm so busy trying to turn things around?

Here's where I find it leaky...

The temptation to be smart, putting my opinions out everywhere, to look and feel good about myself...

The temptation to engage in political debate, on what so and so should do or not do, solving the ills of the nation...

I feel that these are some of the places where I scatter my thoughts and my energy in pursuit of very little.

Where do I draw the line?

My inner joy radiates out of me and how it positively affects others who then return it back is doubly rewarding. I've had a wonderful day indeed . . a day that might have been very different indeed had I not taken a moment to be aware . . .gratitude . . .the kryptonite against mind viruses.

This is sooooo true. Getting in control of my thoughts seems to be a process:
First, the Ah-ha! moment when I realize I'm feeling low-ish.
Then the Analytical moment when I remember what thought brought me down here.
Then doing something to clear or diminish the feeling (EFT, or various other quick & easy methods of mental housecleaning)
Followed by Thinking a New Thought.

Most of the time, I feel pretty good, so I must be thinking the thoughts that will create a good or gooder future.
About 20% of the time, I feel low-ish, and about 50%(?) of the time, I catch myself there....Ah-Ha!!

What I'd like to know - did you, Randy, get to Prosperity Consciousness all of a sudden in a burst of Total Enlightenment? Or was it a process like mine, of steadily improving the percentages?

I'm questioning myself: am I creating a Future akin to my Now, or am I creating an Even Better Future? I have no idea what the heck I'm creating here...I want Fast Improvement, but am not quite sure what to do to ensure that. At best, I'm experimenting with methods. Currently, I'm experimenting with a method called "Be Satisfied with Now." Theoretically that will attract to me More With Which To Be Satisfied.
Being Satisfied Now is....a mental discipline.
Maybe this whole Mental Attitude issue is about mental discipline?

gratefully, Mrs. H&P
