Our Thoughts Create Our Reality

Human Brain Thinking

“Change your thought and you’ll change the world.” ~ Norman Vincent Peale

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” ~ Wayne Dyer

You know how you hear a maxim and it resonates with you, but it’s difficult to implement? Well, the maxim that I’ve been trying to implement for years is “Our thoughts create our reality.” 

Just this morning I was thinking about my morning thought routine and realized that if I want to have a better life, I have to think differently. It takes diligence to switch to a new thought playlist. I don’t know about you, but I’m rather attached to my playlist. It’s familiar and in a way comforting. But my playlist is made up of stories I made up in my head long ago that weren’t true and I never thought to challenge, until now. 

I’ve been taking “quests” with Mindvalley and each quest has shaken up my thinking so that now I’m looking at my playlist and realizing that it has held me back for a long time.

I’m nearly finished with the editing process of the 19 videos for my online course, “Saving the World One Story at a Time.” And one thing I kept hearing myself say in those videos was that we make up stories in our heads and think they’re true, when most of the time there not. I guess what I said in those videos hit home for me, because today, I’ve decided that I’ve got to make a new, more positive thought playlist so I can expand my influence, and even my prosperity. Staying at home creating is nice, but at some point I will need to go out and connect with a broader group of people. 

My thoughts not only create the reality of my personal life, they create what’s going on in the world as well. Collectively our thoughts create the events that are going on in the world around us. I hope we start seeing the world as a friendly place rather than listening to the news outlets that get ratings by shouting about all the bad things happening in the world. When we do change our thinking and begin to see the neighbors next door, or the people we work with, our family and friends, or even our public leaders as beings of light rather than as people with lots of problems, or as scum bags, the world will change. Everyone has their struggles, and everyone has opportunities to heal and grow. I want to encourage all of us to heal and grow from our mistakes, and thus change the way we think.

That’s all I have for today. Just sharing my current thought playlist for you.

Welcome to my new followers and thank you to all of you who read and like or comment on these posts.

Have a blessed weekend.

I grew up in the West, the descendant of people traveling by wagon train to a new life. Some of their determination and wanderlust became a part of me. I imagine them sitting around the campfire telling stories, which is why I became first a theatre artist, then a teacher and now a writer. They are all ways of telling stories.
