Perhaps I am better to explain my thoughts & thinking process, as in my view a positive attitude is just a derivative of my thinking actions. Positive is nothing in itself, just a word that I think is very overused and confused as an action.
My thoughts continually tried to lead me back to the safety of solid ground
Understanding that it’s all a process of converting thoughts into things, helped me through the overwhelm and into some blue-sky thinking. It helped me file it all into meaningful places – yes even the trash.
I taught myself to see it as a process – Incoming ‘thoughts’ are the epigenetics sensors to my whole environment, and ‘thinking’ is the actions I take on those thoughts – It wasn’t 100 % but it helped reduce clog and overwhelm. Sometimes I think it was just the challenge of this that distracted me -I will leave that up to others to decide. Either way, this had a significant impact.
Here are my two most dominant thought habits I created to think upon.
“Anything and Everything is possible, as long as I remained open and willing to its reality. This allowed my willingness to rise up from within, like a bright beacon so that Opportunity and Luck could find their way to me.” I think we are all born with this beacon within, I think for many of us, it takes a significant event to switch it back on.
“My reality is my reality and your reality is yours” – this distinction and understanding became a critical component in preserving my sanity, and seeing through the statistics and those who believed in them.
A little unrealistic often seemed to help
I immersed myself into these thoughts with such depth that it was real, I could somehow slip into my own “Alice in Wonderland” “Wizard of Oz” or “Where the Wild things Are” – sometimes I felt as if they were all one, and other times I just skipped from one to the next – yes pretty weird stuff, but I didn’t resist, I enjoyed it, but most importantly it allowed my dreams to find their realities without the need of anyone else’s approval.
Looking back with the benefit of hindsight
I had no idea that this TAT process would increase the quality of my “Thoughts to Thinking” – who would, but I can now see very clearly that the “Mind” really does try to lead the body in the right direction. I just had to listen for myself. (TAT was just my made-up acronym)
What do I think I have learned from this?
Thoughts are our greatest resource, the ability (& freedom) to think upon our thoughts is the second, then acting on them from within is our third most significant resource. I unknowing allowed this whole process to flow and lead me – without this, I would not be here now.
