Anchor Thoughts

Our thoughts are like anchors, keeping us in one place. If you want to change your current situation, change your thoughts. Take a look at your current situation and listen for the thoughts you are having around that circumstance. Chances are, your thoughts and beliefs support your situation. So, how do we change our thoughts and create improved results? It starts by considering what we are putting in. What music are you listening to? What are you watching? What conversations are you having? Who are you hanging around with? What books are you reading? The answers to those questions are the influencers currently affecting your thoughts.

Improving our thoughts is just like improving our health. If we were to exercise several hours a day but continue to put in more calories than we were exerting, we would not see improvement in our health. The same is true with our mindset. If we are filling our minds with negativity, it won’t matter how many affirmations or positive books we read. Because our thoughts are like anchors, it is crucial to understand that worry is a form of meditation that cements our circumstances. Do not engage in worry or fill your mind with things that will provoke worry.

Take a minute to consider:

1. What are the anchor thoughts keeping you in your current situation?

2. Create new anchor thoughts that support your desired circumstance.

3. Identify your current influencers – (Music, friends, TV, books)

4. Which influencers do you choose to remove and replace?

It is up to us to choose what we allow in our minds. What we see and hear affects our thoughts and attitude. If we want to have a positive mindset, we must be selective with what we allow in.
